The last 5 books I’ve read:

I read each of these books entirely on the train or on my roof. Here are groups of words for each:

I Love Dick

  • You ever spend one sexless night near a Dick and then spend the next few months of your life obsessing over it, rapidly imploding and testing how far your mind can stretch in its internal struggle to juggle want v. distance v. reason v. self? Me too. Here is a quote I liked from this book: “Is there any greater freedom than not caring what certain people in New York think of me?”

New Tab

  • For a year before this novel came out, any time I would open a new tab and forget about it, I would look up, see the tab labeled ‘New Tab,’ and assume it was Guillaume’s page. Then I would realize it wasn’t, and close the tab. I like the mostly-aimless protagonist in this book and felt solidarity in his job malcontent and general confusion about how we are supposed to ever be satisfied with life in general. It’s sort of one long book of ‘What’s The Point’ without making me feel Pointless.

Walls

  • Hey this is out Today, Happy Birthday, Walls. My friend Gabby read this before I did and she said, “I didn’t think I would like it that much, being written by a white man, but it’s surprisingly good.” I felt similarly. I felt confused at the beginning with the time jumps, but then it was easy to see where the story was moving, and why it was important to jump around to different moments in the protagonist’s life. I like the part in the book where he thinks of different excuses to leave his friend’s house. I don’t have the book with me so I can’t quote it exactly, but he thinks of a lot of different ideas.

Vacation

  • Was this book supposed to be scary? It was really good. I don’t know if it is actually a scary book but so much of it freaked me out. Maybe I will read some reviews on the internet to see if other people thought it was scary. I like books where people obsess over other people. While I read this I thought, ‘PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CONFUSED. THEY ARE VERY WRONG. THEY EXPECT THE WORST FROM OTHERS AND THEN BECOME THE WORST THEMSELVES.’

Crystal Eaters

  • I knew I would like this book because I loved the other book I’ve read of Shane’s, Light Boxes. I know you shouldn’t Judge A Novel By The Author’s Previous Novel but you know me, I am predictable and awful. I would like to see this book realized. I would like to see what it looks like when the crystals leave the body, and when people try to put them back in. I wondered how some people knew their exact count, but other people didn’t. Maybe you only know your count if you were very low. That is so terrifying. Yes, this book, I loved it.
