books I read this month

What I Read in January 2023

Asleep From Day by Margarita Montimore (wtf)

Still Life by Louise Penny (the show is better but not bad)

Contemporary Weaving in Mixed Media by Rachna Garodia (excellent)

The Blackhouse by Carole Johnstone (highly enjoyable, fun setting)

Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands by Kate Beaton (frustrating)

Nothing Can Hurt You by Nicola Maye Goldberg (odd book but okay)

Token Black Girl: A Memoir by Danielle Prescod (I wish she got more into things about her parents, they really seemed to have failed her)

Disappeared by Bonnar Spring (great idea, not great books despite having lots I’d like–travel, drama, sisters, weaving!)

Spare by Prince Harry (he doesn’t seem terribly bright but is clearly more emotionally attuned then the rest of his family)

Keeping Two by Jordon Crane (blah)

Small World by Laura Zigman (I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected)

All the Dangerous Things by Stacy Willingham (bad writing and research but I can see it as a show)

The Spare Room by Andrea Bartz (not what I expected but entertaining)

Uncle of the Year and Other Debatable Triumphs by Andrew Rannells (not great, I liked his earlier book a lot better)

Raw Dog: The Naked Truth About Hot Dogs by Jamie Loftus (disappointing)

Really Good, Actually by Monica Heisey (I liked it but it felt strangely long)

Prom Mom by Laura Lippman (thoughts)

Mrs Caliban by Rachel Ingalls (okay, hit my goals of reading different genres and older books)

The Book of Pug Wisdom: Lessons in Life and Love for the Well-rounded Pug by Gemma Correll (very accurate)

The Twyford Code by Janice Hallett (didn’t love the end)

How to Survive Everything by Ewan Morrison (gross)

The House in the Pines
by Ana Reyes (interesting, different characters and premise)
