As the year hope deflated comes to an end, I am burning my eyeballs trying to finish up the books i’m reading. I just finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and A Wind in The Door, and now i’m reading:
Hard Choices Madam Almost-President’s voice is so distinctive that it’s hard to believe she consults with speechwriters. Also, given her dedication to politics, it’s hard to imagine when she had the time to write a 635 page book.
The Tempest The problem with reading this is that I saw a movie version where Prospero was Prospera, and it’s difficult to wrap my head around the fact that it’s a man. One girl in the original version, surrounded by unattractive men.
The Opposite of Loneliness I checked it out because of a good review but haven’t started reading it because of see above. It’s a postmortem book by someone intelligent, and that’s good enough to be lying on the floor, waiting to be read.
Good news is, I have the rest of 2016 off, so hopefully I’ll finish these. Half empty news is that the free time is accompanied by writer’s drought. Terrible news is Trump is still alive. Do you have a 2016 rush read? Comment below!
