Books Read in 2014: part i

Taking inspiration from Kayla, I’m going to start tracking the books I read.

 

ALBA FRAGMENTS by Audrey Niffenegger

 

SHARP OBJECTS by Gillian Flynn

 

WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE by Maria Semple

 

THE LONGEST DATE: MY LIFE AS A WIFE by Cindy Chupack

“Being single in your late thirties means you have to do some seriously stupid shit to prove you’re still fun, like ride in the back of a pickup, rappel down a waterfall, or go on a two-day river rafting/camping trip.”

 

DARK PLACES by Gillian Flynn

“I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ.”

 

A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN by Betty Smith

“On Sunday, most people crowded into the eleven o’clock mass. Well, some people, a few, went to the early six o’clock mass. They were given credit for this but they deserved none for they were the ones who had stayed out so late that it was morning when they got home. So they went to this early mass, got it over with and went home and slept all day with a free conscience.”

One thought on “Books Read in 2014: part i

  1. Beautiful descriptions! I recently reread A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and its poignancy always makes me cry. I had no idea there was a sequel to The Time Traveler’s Wife so I’ll check that out asap.
