22 – Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs

Essays about pop culture by a writer who is pretty much the same age as me.

Book 19 – Where the Crawdads Sing

This book was really really good. Beautiful descriptions of the landscape. Would recommend.

Book 18 – Great Influenza

Really really good. Really really scary. Prescient, and terrifying.

Book 17 – The Testaments

Book 15 – Turtles All the Way Down

Book 8 – Tightrope.

Book 7

Rich People’s Problems. Not as good as the others, but a fun quick read.
