January Book List
January was a pretty good reading month for me I guess. The fact that I read two long books was balanced by the fact that the others I read where very fast reads. If I had to pick a favorite I guess it would be Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I've read three books by her now and all have been page turners and at the same time almost agonizingly slow. She's good at building tension, but I end up spending so much time with her characters I grow to hate them. Although this might be intensional, since none of her main characters are quite likable. That might make it sound like I don't like her books, but I do and I want to read more!
Here's what I read in January 2016:
•Avenue of Mysteries by John Irving
•Slade House by David Mitchell
•Excellent Women by Barbara Pym
•Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
•The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline (Enola Holmes Mysteries, #5) by Nancy Springer
•Fingersmith by Sarah Waters
Movies & TV Watched in January:
•Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (various seasons)
•Friends (part of season 2)
•David Attenborough's Rise of the Animals
•The Venture Brothers (started re-watching from the beginning. Like Bob's Burgers or Archer I re-watch this pretty frequently)
