January 2021 Books

  • The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller: Wish I’d read this sooner after I finished The Silence of the Girls.
  • Scribe, Alyson Hagy: Unsatisfying.
  • The Terranauts, T. Coraghessan Boyle: ’90s biosphere drama. Good, but a bit too long.
  • The Water Dancer, Ta-Nehisi Coates: Really enjoyed watching the protagonist realize that not everything is what it seems to be.
  • Cinder, Marissa Meyer: Very fun cyberpunky Cinderella story.
  • The Midnight Library, Matt Haig: Awesome concept, fun read.
  • The New Plant Parent, Darryl Cheng: I picked up one or two good tips but this is truly for a newbie to houseplants.
  • Dear Miss Kopp, Amy Stewart: Continue to love this series.
  • Still Life with Murder, P.B. Ryan: This was fine. First in a series but not sure I liked it quite enough to continue. Also not sure why it was on my kindle.
  • Hench, Natalie Zina Walschots: Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a supervillian’s henchperson? Why not?
  • Scarlet, Marissa Meyer: Sequel to Cinder, not quite as engaging.
  • A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor, Hank Green: This needed just a little more reminder about where we left off with book one. I had a hard time connecting the dots.

If you only read one, pick up Hench or The Song of Achilles.
