Standard Disclaimer - As usual, I am putting these up mainly just to keep track of them. Feel free, as usual, to skip this post.
Places to Look for a Mother by Nicole Stansbury - Novel about a dysfunctional family in the seventies - good.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan - Novel about a Southern farmer's wife in the 1940s - good.
I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley - Funny essays - entertaining.
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld - Novel about boarding school - good.
The Prince of Frogtown by Rick Bragg - Memoir about the author's father - very, very, good - this guy can write like nobody's business.
Driving Sideways by Jess Riley - A light summer novel - good.
Northline by Willy Vlautin - Novel about a Vegas waitress - grim, but good.
No Man's Land by Ruth Fowler - Memoir about being a stripper in NYC - I did not like her writing style and couldn't get into this one - gave up about 40 pages in.
Moose by Stephanie Klein - Memoir about growing up fat - interesting.
The Good Times are Killing Me by Lynda Barry - Interesting, although I'm a little confused as to why this one was in the "grown-up" section of the library and "Cruddy" was in Young Adult - I think they got it backward.
The Bones of Plenty by Lois Hudson - Novel about the dust bowl years on a Kansas farm - OK, but I got through about half of it and quit, mainly because I had other books waiting - maybe I'll give it a try another time.
I Love You Like a Tomato by Marie Giordano - Meh. I got about 200 pages in and lost interest.
Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill - Novel - Very depressing and very good.
