All the views towards women in that book I have heard voiced. In the news, on internet forums, by people in real life. I just can't wrap my head around that kind of thinking. Just ugh.
To rinse my brain out, I followed it up with Bossypants by Tina Fey.
It was okay. I don't like biographies or memoirs so that coloured my views. It did make me laugh a couple of times but yeah, I read it for the Dewey challenge. As you can tell from my regular fiction list, I generally pick stuff that is far from reality.
Last night I had an hour or two to kill before going to bed so I read Howl's Moving Castle by Dianna Wynn Jones.
Howl is my favourite Hayao Miyazaki film. I love Sophie and if I had another daughter that would be her name. A lot of fantasy novels tend to blur together as they often tell the same types of stories but this is quite different. I read it on my e-reader but I think I'm going to buy a hard copy for my library.
What's on your reading list this week?
