May's book list

I was hoping I could just skip this, but after doing this for 3 years it seems like it would be wrong to not do so.

So: I finished 2 books in May.

I was busy. Not incredibly busy, but busy.

And I started 5 or 6 books.

Basically May was just a dumb month.

Lessing, Doris. Alfred and Emily. New York: HarperCollins, 2008.*
Doris Lessing, one of my heroes for being awesome, tries to imagine the life her parents would have had if World War I had never taken place because their lives were so drastically changed by it. So the first half of the book is the story of that. And then the second half is how their lives really were, and her life and her brother's. I swear, even the arranging of the words is just sad. Very sad. Very good, very interesting. Very sad.

Rice, Ann. Lasher. New York: Ballentine Books, 1995.
And.... the Ann Rice book frenzy is over. See you in another 4 or 5 years.
