    Number 18, Daryl Gregory's "Harrison Squared" (which I actually finished yesterday) An excellent book. So excellent, it felt too short even though it was the perfect length. Definitely recommended!

    The last 2 books I read were my favourite this year, so far.
    The Basic Eight - Daniel Handler
    The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
    Sarah

    Man, I am SO behind on this challenge. I haven't finished a book for about a month, I'm not even reading at all at the moment. I'm so exhausted when I come back from work that all I want to do is mindlessly browse the Internets.

    I've been so rubbish this year compared to last year! I'm not finding the time to read much at the minute. I'm partway through Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood, but not loving it so far.

    Finally a new addition to my list! Book number 19, Sara Taylor's "Boring Girls". I would have enjoyed it A LOT more if it didn't feel like Sara just wanted to get it over and done with, after a very strong beginning though. It's like she was too bored to write it properly from one point afterwards.

    EDIT: Book number 20, Greg Prato's "Grunge is Dead" First "oral history" book I've read, interesting format, but it was a rather tedious book. Interesting and very informative, but tedious.

    EDIT 2: Book number 21 (thankfully, I'm back to my usual reading ways now), Marcus Sakey's "Brilliance" Mediocre, predictable and ultimately boring.

    Book number 22, Tom Robbins' "Jitterbug Perfume" Apparently, this book is sort of a "classic"? I never even knew about it until a few months ago, and it would have been better if I had never read it. It's disgustingly sexist, bordering on misogynistic.

    EDIT: Book number 23, Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl", the first in the series. I'm super late to the Artemis Fowl party but not disappointed, even though the book was super simple and quick to read. I'm going to begin the second one immediately.
