A book with a number in the title: Nine Stories (1953) by JD Salinger
- They are good stories, but I wasn't going to keep it after I finished. But then the last story blew my mind.
Not part of the challenge:
Re-read: The Secret Garden (1911) by Frances Hodgson Burnett
- It took me longer than it should have to re-read this. I was distracted because my copy was falling apart, my cat kept stepping on my boobs, and I kept imagining what their lives would be like. If Mary were a real person and still alive today, she would be 115. Not too farfetched. Hopefully she would have realized her feelings towards Indians were messed up.
- My book is a paperback edition that was a tie-in with a tv movie. The cover has the three children in front of a Christmas tree, even though none of the book takes place during Christmas. Colin Firth has a small role.
- A lot of the book seemed like Dickon fanfiction.
First Reads: The Drafter (2015) by Kim Harrison
- Not too bad
Films of Norma Shearer (1976) by Jack Jacobs
An Untamed State (2014) by Roxane Gay
- Really good
Manga: Frankenstein (?) by Junjo Ito
- Couldn't help but laugh at the female creature
Manga: Free Soul (2004) by Ebine Yamaji
- Misread the description. Was kind of disappointed that the story wasn't about a relationship between the main character and Angie.
- There was a slight incest subplot, but they were very flippant about it.
The Book of Negroes (2007) by Lawrence Hill
- Really good.
First Reads: Luminous (2015) by Kendra A. Ziems
- It was self published, could have used more editing.
