Okay, let's pretend it's 6 weeks earlier, right? I totally wasn't lazy in updating my book list AT ALL.

79: The Royal Mess, by Mary Janice Davidson

It started getting really repetitive. And so much insta-love from constant boning. It was a neat idea, but it's clear it wasn't going to go anywhere new.

80: The Green Road, by Anne Enright

Uhm. Difficult to say. I liked it, but I couldn't love it. It's certainly a good book, might even be a great one, but it just didn't speak to me. I couldn't have cared less about anything in it. Still, for all that, I don't regret reading it. For those interested, it's a book taking apart a family in 1980s up to contemporary Ireland. It's well done. It's just not a voice resonating with me.

81: High Rising, by Angela Thirkell

My brother lent me this, it's another of his obscure literature finds. It was a very fun, light-hearted book, didn't take itself too seriously. Nice little romp in the 1930s English countryside.

82: To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis

I gave myself this book as a Christmas present and OMG loved it SO SO MUCH!!!! Why didn't y'all tell me sooner I had to read this one?


So, all in all, 82 books in 2015. Certainly not my highest number, but then again, it took me a whole bloody month to read that French book alone ... and I'm certainly happy with most of the books I read that year, so there's that :)

If you want more Thirkell, I can recommend Pomfret Towers. Wild Strawberries is quite good too. Nice to read in between the heavier stuff.

Love TSNotD. Haven't reread it in ~18 years, I think. Time for a reread
