Here's something maybe you already know about me: when I was little, I did exactly the opposite of what everyone told me to do, to the extent that my uncle would sometimes tell me to NOT lick the wall, just to see me lick a wall. Another thing: I was in track in 8th grade and as a freshman and rocked the high jump. I placed at least 3rd at all the meets and was the best on our team. Then, in my sophomore year of high school, a very tall freshman joined our team who could jump higher, so I quit.
All of this to say, I'm reading a book a week, and it is somehow not as difficult as one would imagine considering I don't have time to dry my hair in the mornings or to think on any given day (Or maybe I'm reading books and therefore don't have time? Chicken:Egg:Chicken, etc.). I do have to admit, however, that I've snuck in some audiobooks, which I consider totally legit. I listened to Amy Poehler's Yes Please, and listening to her read it was definitely better than reading it myself. (If you haven't read this, you might like to, because it is hilarious and good.)
Anyway. If you are looking for a book recommendation, I recommend:
Amy Blume's Lucky Us
Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven
Jenny Ofill's The Dept. of Speculation (I'm only a bit of the way in, but it might be my current all-time favorite book)
Mary Szybists's Incarnadine (poetry)
Matthew Olzmann's Mezzanines (poetry)
On my "You have better things to do list:" The Book of Strange New Things. It's a book that in theory is amazing, but that I couldn't bring myself to finish. The questions you want answered are never answered, and then it's just another apocalypse story. Ha. Just like the Bible, I guess...
