Look at all these new nonfiction releases! (Okay, one that’s not so new, but I do these in reading order so it’s fine.) I have some more prototypical president stuff, political science, and a couple of memoirs – and they spanned both the “I did not like this” and “I really liked this” spectrum. Let’s dive in!
As promised in my August wrap up, my review of Yes, Please. I laughed out loud, but was also kind of confused. The best part was definitely the genuine human aspects of the audiobook. I really felt like Amy and her friends were including me in some intimate moments rather than just reading something they’d written and then edited heavily. The “plot” aspect of it, however, was missing entirely and caused for some disconnection. Either way, a great audiobook to listen to!
Choosing by Religion by Stephen J. Dubner
Choosing My Religion is a luminous memoir, crafted with the eye of a journalist and the art of a novelist by New York Times Magazine writer and editor Stephen J. Dubner. By turns comic and heartbreaking, it tells the story of a family torn apart by religion, sustained by faith, and reunited by truth.
Now that Amazon/Chegg have finally delivered all my school books for the year, I thought that it might be cool to do a book haul! Don’t worry: not a text book in sight. In fact, these books are all either fantasy/scifi short story collections, memoirs or–okay–some really strange philosophy texts. Some of them you’ll see on the blog … some of them you won’t. Either way, here’s a really cool 16 book haul for you guys!
