5/40: A book written from from a child's perspective: Benjamin Zephaniah's Teacher's Dead: When I was living in England a client gave me this and I loved the simple title. Telling yet intriguing. Jackson embarks on a quest for the truth and we join him in his search. Jackson's empathy is what makes this book great and worth reading.

1/40 - An audiobook published by Audible Studios.  I've finally finished the first book of the year. An elaborating interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. I really enjoyed Richard Armitage he is pure perfection.

3/40: A book written by someone over 60: A. S. Byatt's Ragnarok. A sort of retelling of the myth of Ragnarok through the eyes of a child during World War II. I expected something a bit different - more of an interpretation, than the actual telling that happens here - but I ended up being okay with it.

18/40: A piece of published fanfiction: Jo Baker's Longbourn. This was okay. I've not read much fanfic that looks at the established story this way, so that was nice, but I want more time with the Pride and Prejudice characters that I know than this provided.

17/40: A book to feed your wanderlust: Caitlin Doughty's From Here To Eternity. This books looks at death rituals around the world and how the western way of funerals might not be the most optimal way. I learned a lot and have even more thoughts on what constitutes a good death for me. My only complaint is that it is too short!

16/4: A book with a title that's describes your life: Kate Bolick's Spinster. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but for a book called spinster there is a lot of marriages. Albeit not lasting marriages. It is billed as memoir, but it is also biographies of five very formidable writers and the sociology of the women's movement.

15/40: A book with a persons name in the title: Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. I tried reading my paperback, but I just couldn't get into it. But from the brining of the audiobook I was hooked! Thandie Newton does a tremendous job and I fell in love with this story.

14/40: A book with a green cover: William S. Burroughs' The Soft Machine: This was just a horrible read. I understand that it is experimental, but I had to force myself to read it. It is so bad. Even the chapter that isn't cut up is difficult to understand. Just skip this one.

13/40: An autobiography: Roxane Gay's Hunger. Yes, it says memoir in the subtitle says memoir, but I don't care because this memoir is amazing and enlightening and filled with feelings - good and bad. I highly recommend it to everyone. Roxane herself reads the audiobook and she does a wonderful job.

12/40: A book under 150 pages: Anders Oling and  Hans Erik Havsteen's Gorm Den Gamle, Harald Blåtand og Svend Tveskæg. Kongerækken is one of my favourite podcast and Diana gifted me the three books they've written for my birthday yesterday, so I promptly read the first and shall soon devour the others.
