what I read in March 2020

A Warning by Anonymous
Yet more confirmation that Trump and the current American government are just as awful and dysfunctional as they seem.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
I’m not sure about all the magic stuff, but she has a lot of really smart advice on living a creative life.
Bowls by America’s Test Kitchen
Lots of appealing ideas.
Bunny by Mona Awad
Audiobook. Weird, but I liked it.
Everyday Decorating by Jeffrey Bilhuber
Not my style.
Find Your Pleasure by Cynthia Loyst
Fine (if somewhat common sense) advice on self-care, but good grief, the book is half photographs of her.
Grit by Angela Duckworth
Audiobook. Really interesting food for thought on how and why to work on one’s grit. Do hard things.
Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson
Very enjoyable. My kind of book.
Period Repair Manual by Lara Briden
Includes some seriously outdated information on nutrition, but her repeated recommendation to take magnesium checks out with other things I’ve read.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Needed this after A Warning. Absolute perfection.
Recipe for a Perfect Wife by Karma Brown
Audiobook. Dual narrators are not my favourite device because one is inevitably weaker than the other and I end up wishing the dud’s part had been discarded entirely.
Things in Jars by Jess Kidd
A super-stylised gothic detective story. Intriguing and entertaining.
Ultimate Veg by Jamie Oliver
Yeah, I’ll try some of these.
