Literary Life: January in Review

I read a surprising number of books in January, all things considered. Not only was I away for the last week or so, but also I’ve had zero desire to read finishing All the Light We Cannot See.

LA was amazing! The picture above is one my friend Tania – who very kindly let me stay with her – took while we spent a few days in the Californian mountains. MOUNTAINS! If only I lived near some of those.

This picture, however, is of a 50 ft. Dinosaur. Need I say more.


There was also a bookish element to my trip, but that’s for another post.

Currently Reading:

Could be anything at this point.



I’ve Read:

  1. All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr
  2. A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness
  3. Brooklyn – Colm Tóibín
  4. Grief Is the Thing with Feathers – Max Porter

How was your literary new year? What was the best book you read?

So far, I think Olive Kitteridge was the best book I’ve read this year, but it could be the one I’m reading right now. We’ll see…

I can’t see the picture!! Is something wrong? Oh I so want to see the 50-foot dinosaur! But all I can see is a line of text describing what should be there. (Cruel twist of fate.)
