Books of 2013

As you’ll see, discount a bunch of these books came from the book club episodes of The Incomparable podcast. Others came from friends or Good Reads.

The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson – Really fun read, men’s health but kind of got messy at the end.

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut – Not that good. So it goes.

Wool by Hugh Howie – I really enjoyed this one.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – This book was so well written, viagra approved vivid descriptions of places and people and things going on. And then a character says “We’re running out of time” and the book ends two chapters later. Really. What?

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle – Quite disappointed, The Incomparable couldn’t save this one for me.

The Rook: A Novel by Daniel O’Malley – So good! Glad I read this one before listening to The Incomparable podcast about it.

I started reading Little, Big by John Crowley in December but I am still reading it. Recommended about a million times on Gil’s Virtual Memories podcast, and the GoodReads reviews were either 1 or 5 stars, which made me have to read it for myself. I’m about 70% though, and so far it’s… slow. But every time I think I’m going to stop reading it, there is some passage that is so vivid, so well written, that I just need to keep going.
