Pithy Book Reviews 2018



#1. Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs by Beth Ann Fennelly

Support Independent Bookstores - Visit IndieBound.orgThis book is really short, but I read it twice, so I say that counts as a full book. I love Fennelly’s straightforward voice. She draws you right in. I preferred the more fleshed out essays to the more micro pieces.



#2. All The Ugly And Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood

Support Independent Bookstores - Visit IndieBound.orgThis book kept me up way past my bedtime for three nights. I truly wanted to put it down and get to sleep, but I couldn’t. It’s disturbing, but so compelling and well told.



#3. The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce

Support Independent Bookstores - Visit IndieBound.orgWhat a great concept about a quirky music store where the only sell records and the owner knows exactly what song a customer needs to hear. I’m still in the middle of this one so can’t weigh in yet. So far so good.
