Reading life review: January

The Nest Home Design Handbook (Carley Roney)
Decorating Ideas That Work (Heather J. Paper)
Speed Decorating (Jill Vegas)
Flip! for Decorating (Elizabeth Mayhew)
Home Decor: A Sunset Design Guide (Kerrie L. Kelly)
Non-fiction; how-to. Yes, there is a theme here. Yes, there were many other titles; these were just the ones to which I kept returning. No, I don't have photos yet. And yes, this is why I have utterly abandoned Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child (Anthony Esolen), which I picked up to participate in the book club over at Ordo Amoris. [Insert small sigh.] I will read the book and prepare a chapbook entry. One of these days.

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (Amy Chua)
Memoir; parenting. Mentioned here.

Macbeth (William Shakespeare)
Play; classic. Related entries here and here.

The Other Side of the Island (Allegra Goodman)
Fiction; dystopian. Mentioned here.

A Lantern in Her Hand (Bess Streeter Aldrich)
Fiction. Mentioned here.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (Winifred Watson)
Fiction. Girl Detective recommended this, calling it "cheering." And it was. Will seek out the film in early March.
