3. Bird Box

By Josh Malerman (294 pp ebook)

Just last week I put up a photo of my to read pile (more or less). After fretting about having so many books to read and finding books I'd forgotten about, I had to buy this book (on sale!) and read it immediately. It's been on my list for awhile. I thought it was fun to read but doesn't hold up under scrutiny. I enjoyed. I haven't seen the movie.

2. Six Years

By Harlan Coben (352 ebook)

Someone mentioned this author so I grabbed this book on sale. At first I thought it was super fun and page-turny but the longer it went on the more ridiculously implausible it got. Fun for a quick read.

1. The Princess Diarist

By Carrie Fisher (246 pp)

I got this book as a birthday gift a couple of years ago which turned out to be just a couple days after she died. The whole thing made me so sad I couldn't bear to look at the book until now. I don't know what to tell you. There's enough good stuff in here for a nice magazine article. The rest is endless cringe-tastic teenage diary not to mention some icky stuff about being a young female actress. If her mom wasn't famous it probably would have been worse. Reading those diary entries made me vow to find and burn any cringey diary stuff I might still have if I haven't burned it already.
