In an effort to read all of the books I somehow manage to keep purchasing, I've set a goal to finish two books a month for 2017. Seems easy, but I have a short attention span and a real love affair with streaming television. I'll include a list and an quick review.
1. Scrappy Little Nobody - Anna Kendrick - Great memoir, funny and easy to read. Makes me even more sure that we could be friends.
2. Forward - Abby Wambach - Memoirs are my sweet spot, and this may be one of the best I've ever read. Unflinchingly honest, and an interesting look at how the things that create us have the potential to destroy us. Highly recommend.
3. The Marvelous Misadventures of Ingrid Winter - J.S. Drangholt - I can't lie. This book is difficult mostly because it has been translated from one of the lovely Scandinavian countries (which I can't currently remember). I only made it through a few chapters. Also, I totally didn't account for how crazy February is for me.
4. Talking As Fast As I Can - Lauren Graham - I enjoy her as a human being and like her conversational style of writing. I'm also a huge Gilmore Girls fan, so I'm sure that also shades my review. But it was an enjoyable read just the same.
5. The Polygamist's Daughter - Anna LeBaron - Anna is a Twitter friend, and I have been looking forward to reading her story. It was both harrowing and hopeful.
6. Love Warrior - Glennon Doyle Melton - I love Glennon, and this book made me laugh and cry and highlight the heck out of it. I will be returning to its wisdom again and again.
