Goodreads Update 9/26/16

Hello there! Welcome to this completely reasonable Goodreads update, in which I have only added 6 books since my last update. We won't talk about the fact that that update was only 2 weeks ago.

  1. Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick - I just love her. She's super smart and funny. So of course I'd have to read her memoir.

  2. Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue - I won this from a giveaway at work. A man from Cameroon bags a job as a chauffeur for a senior executive at Lehman Brothers. When the banking world falls apart they are all in this together.

  3. Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance - In this society, the only group it's still okay to make fun of are the hillbillies, rednecks, and white trash. This book is an homage to those groups.

  4. Eat Dirt by Dr. Josh Axe - I started reading this, then hit my slump, so I put it back on my TBR to pick up again later.

  5. Slade House by David Mitchell - This is the October book club book, so I put it on my list. Short, creepy, scary house book. Sounds perfect for October. Also, it meets one of my challenges to read a horror book. Woot!

  6. We Gon' Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation by Jeff Chang - This is a book of essays about the current state of race relations in America. This is definitely a thing I've been thinking a lot more about, lately, given my current place of employment.

So there are my 6 new books on my TBR. I'm feeling mighty self-restrained today.
