Books Of The Month: November 2015

Oh, November.

NaNo, NaNo, NaNo.

These are the books I managed to finish this month while trying to write my own.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

One phrase description: The ending will stay with you.

Quote:

You wear the right outfit and you feel like the person you’re pretending to be.

My general thoughts: Bruno was naive, even for his age. Kids are perceptive, and because the main character wasn’t, I was slightly annoyed.

Angels in America by Tony Kushner

One phrase description: The characters are out of this world.

Quote:

It’s the fear of what comes after the doing that makes the doing hard to do.

My general thoughts: I liked “Millennium Approaches” (part one) more than “Perestroika” (part two).

Beloved by Toni Morrison

One phrase description: The prose is beautiful. 

Quote:

If you can’t count they can cheat you. If you can’t read they can beat you.

My general thoughts: It’s a tough, difficult read. I took forever to finish the book because I kept admiring Morrison’s wonderful writing of a very serious topic.

I am currently reading…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Why: Why not? It’s such a high-quality book in every way possible. The prose, the photographs, even the paper. I’m taking my time with it. Read: I haven’t had all the time in the world this month for obvious reasons.

I hope you had a great month of reading and writing. We have one more month of 2015. Isn’t that crazy?
