I’m still reading the same sort of things. Before you read on about what I’ve been reading perhaps the little disclaimer in the previous book recap post would relevant. 😉
Since June I’ve read…
Strip City by Lily Burana
Let’s Go Play at The Adams’ by Mendal W. Johnson
Confessions of a Working Girl by Miss S
A Day In The Life Of Death by Ryan Lee
Mortuary Confidential by Todd Harra
Secret Diary of a Call Girl by Belle de Jour
Bonk by Mary Roach
Stiff by Mary Roach
Does This Mean You’ll See Me Naked? by Robert D. Webster
Down Among The Dead Men by Michelle Williams
I enjoyed all but one of them. (A Day In The Life Of Death – I thought the author had a really sassy tone, I didn’t like that). These ten are a great mix of the things that I enjoy reading about. My top three from these were Bonk, Stiff and Down Among The Dead Men.
If you’ve never read anything by Mary Roach you should probably pick up one of her books immediately. After Stiff I fell head over heels in love with her writing. Not that’s it’s saying much since there’s only one author whose books I buy no matter what but she’s now number two in my very short list of favorite authors. I’ve currently reading her book Spook and next on my list is Packing for Mars, it’s already on my desk waiting for me to crack it open. It feels so awesome to find a new author to love.
It’s not in my top three but Let’s Go Play at The Adams’ really really sticks out in my head. When I looked back at the pile I’ve read since June I actually was confused for a second because my memory of Let’s Go Play at The Adams’ is SO vivid I thought I had watched a movie not read the book. I was sad to see that the author has only written one book, I’d definitely be down to read another.
What have you been reading lately? Got any recommendations you think I would love based on what I’ve enjoyed so far this year?
