Reading life review

Number of books since last review: 4
Number of books read in 2012: 137
Complete list here.

The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady (Elizabeth Stuckey-French) Fiction. Because it was purchased with two of my favorite reads from this year -- Sister (Rosamund Lupton; fiction) and The Art of Hearing Heartbeats (Jan-Philipp Sendker; fiction) -- I had high hopes for this... and was disappointed.

The Middlesteins (Jami Attenberg) Fiction. It was the setting (Chicago) that first interested me, but the quirky family dynamic and dark humor kept me turning the pages (well, electronically -- read this one on the Kindle).

Say This, NOT That to Your Professor (Ellen Bremen) Non-fiction. Read in order to recommend to the Misses as both plan to dual enroll in either Fall 2013 or Spring 2014. Clear, practical, recommended.

The End of Your Life Book Club (Will Schwalbe) Non-fiction. Reviews here and here.
