I decided to take on a reading challenge for the first time this year. I chose the POPSUGAR reading challenge because it had really interesting prompts that I think would change up my usual reading habits. I want to try and read more books in a variety of genres (instead of just memoirs and adult lit) and more books written by women.
To combat the freak out over time moving so fast (a quarter of the year has already past!) I figured I'd reflect a bit on what I've read so far:
A book with a subtitle: Shocked: My mother, Schiaparelli and Me by Patricia Volk
A great memoir for anyone interested in fashion, vintage life, and the relationships between mothers and daughters
A book that's been on your TBR for way too long: The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner
This was kind of a disappointment. I found all the characters and the plot rather boring.
A book with pictures: Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone by Bo Burnham
This is for anyone who loved Shel Silverstein as a kid and has a good sense of humor.
A book with a red spine: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
My first dip into Carrie Fisher's books and it was a great introspective look into her thoughts and hilarious at times.
A book by an author from a country you've never visited: The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz
Continuations with a new author are always a little weird, but this was pretty good. I'd stick to the originals though.
