September–December Books

Reads

And here are all the rest of the books I’ve read this year lumped in together. By my account I’ve read 55 books this year. That’s not bad. It’s been fun keeping tract of these. If I hadn’t, I’d probably think, oh, I guess I read a couple of books. I’m thinking of adding a few words of review to these, but only if I have something to say. Let's test this out.

Amy Poehler: Yes Please I’ve read a few books by comedians and this was one of the few I actually liked. This and the one by Jim Gaffigan.

J. K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Re-reading is the best reading.

Bruce Feiler: The Secrets of Happy Families

J. R. R. Tolkien: Silmarillion I think i should get a medal for reading through this. I can’t understand how something so interesting can be so boring. Also, I never knew Lúthien was so badass. Riding around on her giant wolf, beating everyone up.

Tieman Robert: The Disney Treasures

J. K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban The thing about re-reading.

Robert Calbraith: Silkworm I kind of like these. I guess it’s the private eye aspect. I love Sherlock Holmes and Pushing Daisies.

Terry Pratchett: Unseen Academicals I actually listened to this, and I did not care for the way the reader was doing the voices at all. I kept thinking I might like the book better, if I weren’t so annoyed with the way the characters were talking.

Heli Lahdenranta, Ulla-Maija Lähteenmäki: K niin kuin koti – 10 kotia, tyyliä ja näkökulmaa Decorating books are weird, because they are lovely to look at, but still I never seem to get anything out of them.

Brigid Schulte: Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time

Terry Pratchett: Raising Steam Terry Pratchett’s was the first book I read in English, back when I was a teenager. I’ll always think of them fondly. This was good, but I like his mid career stuff better. And I hope he’ll still write one about the witches. They’ll always be my favorite.

J. K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire I love Harry Potter.

We’ve moved!

I haven’t been updating lately because… We bought a house in November! Well, one end of a row house, but it is all ours! It’s been pretty great to fix your own home after living in rentals all my adult life. But it’s also been pretty hectic! I’ll try to post more pictures after Christmas, but here’s a sneak peek at our wintery back yard.
