Just got a new Kindle (after having my old one stolen) and I had a long weekend because of two bank holidays in Romania so I've been doing quite some reading.
I have a thing for celebrity memoirs whenever I'm looking for a light read. Gabourey's was quite good. I knew she was witty and funny, but she really exceeded my expectations with this one. Plus she's had quite an interesting life (lots of interesting family dynamics and she worked as a phone sex operator) and all that makes for an interesting book.
I've just started 'The Disaster Artist' in anticipation of the upcoming movie. I have also seen 'The Room' last week and it's fun to get some behind the scenes stories while everything is still fresh. I'm only three chapters in and so far it's okay but I'm a bit annoyed by how Greg Sestero presents himself. He's spending too much time trying to justify why he was involved in the movie ("Oh, I needed money.", "Oh, I never thought it would be released.") but it's his book so I guess I can't blame him for it.
Leaving the best for last, 'Her Body and Other Parties' is a collection of short stories by Carmen Maria Machado and I am completely blown away by it. This is probably gonna end up being one of my favourite books this year. I can't even begin to describe this book. It blends so many things, from psychological realism to horror to comedy to feminism to queerness. The first story made me gasp 4 times and I wasn't even halfway through it.
