Time for a November reading wrap-up!
Here’s a collection of the books I read during November. Click each title for my full reviews.
Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter
Andrea thinks she knows her mother, but then a holdup uncovers a dramatic past that puts them both in danger.
The Story of a Marriage by Geir Gulliksen
A couple clings desperately to their failing marriage. At first, I thought the book as relying on graphic sex to much. But then it hit me: they were using it to prove something that wasn’t there.
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
In this translated novella, Keiko finds order and comfort in her regimented life as a convenience store worker in Japan. A new coworker questions the importance of that life, though.
The Lies We Told by Camilla Way
This book follows two timelines. In one, a harried young mother can’t handle her demon child. In another, a besotted woman searches for her missing fiance. Timelines clash dramatically.
The Other Woman by Sandie Jones
Woman meets man. Woman falls in love with man. Evil mother throws everything asunder. This book is dramatic, frustrating, and fun. Open it up for some good hate reading.
The Pisces by Melissa Broder
What an odd book. Lucy is in her late 30s, suicidal, and a sex addict. When she housesits for her wealthy sister, she meets a very…unusual man. I need to talk about this one some more.
Putney by Sofka Zinovieff
Ralph finds his muse in nine year-old Daphne. It isn’t until decades later that Daphne sees the reality of their relationship. This book is brilliant and impactful.
“Evidence of the Affair” by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Carrie and David grow in friendship (and more?) when they discover their spouses are having an affair with one another. It’s a nice short story, and bonus points: it’s free for Amazon Prime and Unlimited members.
