Booklist: February & March

Things were going really well, then I did pirate stuff, wrote a curriculum, and stressed out about everything, and now I'm ten books behind.

But I did read a few things:

February

1. Your Call Is Important To Us, Laura Penny

Not what I expected - more a politically-fueled diatribe and less an examination of marketing techniques.

2. Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham

Funny, fast-paced, but surprisingly light on juicy gossip and behind-the-scenes details.

3. Words on the Move, Dr. John McWhorter

Ya'll, this man. So good. If you're even slightly into language, read this.

4. Cheaper by the Dozen, Frank Gilbraith Jr & Ernestine Carey

Comfort reading.

5. The Invisible Library, Genevive Cogman

Librarian-themed fantasy: yes please!

March

1. Rising Strong, Brene Brown

Hard to read, so it took forever, but so good. Courage, vulnerability, honesty, bravery.

2. Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Meowed, Alan Bradley

OH FLAVIA, WHY YOU BREAK MY HEART. (despite this, if you are a fan of smart mysteries, 1950s England, and/or spunky girl heroines, please do start at the begining of the series.)

starting on LJ catch-up backwards... will do real catch up tomorrow, but I grinned at "Cheaper By the Dozen" as comfort reading. It is that, isn't it?

Agree about the Flavia DeLuce stories: adored the first one, liked the next few, but had trouble reading them after that. I don't think I made it as far as the one you list.

I love the series - every bit of it - but even though I know better Bradley keeps surprising me with how much tragedy he's willing to introduce into Flavia's life. :(
