Fantastic non-fiction examining the decline in quality of clothing, and the ethical and environmental damages wrought by disposable fashion. Really incisive, and although she was preaching to the choir here, I am newly resolved to stay away from poorly made garments, and will try even harder to buy American/Canadian/English or vintage clothing.
Hauntingly beautiful post-apocalyptic adult fiction. Hig is a pilot who survived the flu that killed off most of the population, and he and his neighbor and his beloved dog Jasper have been fighting for survival for some time. When Hig falls apart, he sets out to find more people, and finds redemption and faith in humanity.
Adorable Anastasia book! Somehow I don't remember this one from my major love of Anastasia Krupnik, so had to give it a read. I love how Anastasia is so happy for Henry, and it was just lovely to revisit an old friend.
Excellent dark psychological thriller. Worst. Marriage. Ever.
Flynn's elegant style and endless twists make her one of the most interesting thriller writers around, and this (for me) tied with Dark Places as her best.
Disappointing book from Project Runway star Laura Bennett. Too many of the projects were simply adaptations of each other, and as leather and fur are notoriously hard to sew, I don't think these would be possible on a home machine.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
