Bout of Books #19 Recap: Day Five

Good Day Readers,

A mixed bag today, but a big improvement from yesterday. I decided that after getting 60% through Yes Please, I could do no more. The reading wasn’t difficult, I just completely lost interest.

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours on the other hand…


I repeated this phrase often while reading that book. Oyeyemi is on a different astral plane than me. She’s a great writer, but the short stories were mind-boggling, weird, and really open-ended. I got a headache if I read What Is Not Yours for too long.

Also, One More Book!!
