Reading List Triage

So let’s talk about the library.  You know that thing where you put a bunch of books on your holds list and you wait for them to trickle in, one by one?

Well.  About that thing.  Over the course of the last week and a half, I’ve found seven books stacked on my table.   Which means that I am now doing reading list triage.  We’ll see what ends up surviving this round.

Tragically Dorky Fun Secret: I brought two books to work today, that way I would have lunchtime reading options.

But we all know I do not write about the books that I am about to read.  I tell you about the books that I have finished.  In case this does not become readily apparent, this is by far the most eclectic potpourri of books I could have possibly chosen to read in the last month or so.

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

World War Z by Max Brooks

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

  1. Do you have Thoughts on the Brené Brown books?

  2. Bossypants by Tina Fey and Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg – surprisingly I would read Tina’s book to Lean In – a much more Identifiable human process. And it was really written by her!

  3. I have Daring Greatly if you’re on the Brene Brown train – haven’t actually read it yet so you’re welcome to borrow it if you’re in the zone!

  4. Gillian Flynn’s books are so, so dark but I can’t help it – I love them all. Definitely read Bossypants if you haven’t already, as your mom suggested. I felt energized and motivated after reading parts of Lean In but it wasn’t exactly a page turner.

  5. The Count of Monte Cristo, Allegiant (a big disappointment), How to Talk So Your Kids Will Listen and Listen So Your Kids Will Talk, Daring Greatly (barely started, but I like it so far). I think a need more Gillian Flynn – really enjoyed Gone Girl. World War Z is one of my favourite books! I totally cried while reading it – more than a few times.
