Books Read in 2018

APRIL
Origamy by Rachel Armstrong – One of the weirdest books I’ve read in a long time. Spectacular. Awesome. Thought-provoking. Some clunky writing, but overall well worth my time.

Trouble Boys The True Story of the Replacements by Bob Mehr – Well done bio about crafting art in the midst of tragedy, most (but not all) of which is self-inflicted.

MARCH
Shadow Country A New Rendering of the Watson Legend by Peter Matthiessen – Engaging historical fiction. Worthwhile if Florida history is your thing.

Art Of The Novel by Milan Kundera – Collection of essays. Some better than others.

Every Time We Meet at the Dairy Queen, Your Whole Fucking Face Explodes by Carlton Mellick III – Mellick has a gift.

FEBRUARY
Wild Storm Volume 1 by Warren Ellis, Jon Davis Hunt – meh

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – Intro for people unfamiliar with feminism.

Envy of Angels: A Sin Du Jour Affair by Matt Wallace – Fun and entertaining read.

Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander – Loved this book!

JANUARY

The Three-Body Problem: Remembrance of Earths Past #1 by Cixin Liu, Ken Liu – A few neat ideas, but not really my kind of book.

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin – I liked this better than I expected. Looking forward to reading the next two volumes. Great characterization and world-building.

Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor – I’ll read anything by Okorafor. She. Is. Fantastic.
