Reading Wrap-Up | November 2016

reading-wrap-up

I didn’t read that much this month. But I’d still say it was a good reading month. I also haven’t done a wrap-up in awhile, and I want to get back into doing so.

Jasmine by Bharati Mukherjee

I like reading about other cultures and I thought the narrator’s life in her home village in India was pretty captivating. However, the book is mostly full of soap opera-like events throughout the rest of the book. The main character also become very unlikeable, especially with the ending.

Nancy Drew Files #1: Secrets can Kill by Carolyn Keene

I was in the mood for some Nancy Drew. This is one of the best Nancy Drew books. Except Nancy’s crazy attraction to Daryl was kind of awkward. Otherwise this is a fun little read, I may even do a full review.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe

This was a really great book. The way it captures the complexity of one culture is amazing. The main character isn’t likeable but he is an interesting and tragic figure.

Foe by JM Coetzee

There’s just something I really love about this book. It’s weird and experimental but there’s something really masterful in it’s overall theme.
