Friday Fifteen

Welcome to the Friday Fifteen, in which I review five books in fifteen words or less. It’s all the review you want without any of that excess helpful information. Onto the books!

1. Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri
Lahiri’s writing is gorgeous as always, but this collection didn’t strike me like Maladies.

2. The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition by Staff of the University of Chicago Press
Where does that comma go? The Chicago Manual knows! My grammar book of choice.

3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Man-eating horse races plus amazing characters and writing. What more could you want?! Read immediately.

4. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
Such a page-turner. Great writing, and Cathy rivals Lady Macbeth as craziest lady villain ever.

5. Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom by Jennifer S. Holland
Guys. Inter-species animal friendships. My heart can’t take this much cute.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
