Everyone Is Mad at Nora

Self adores angst.

Angst is tops.

Angst is what self would love to write 24/7.

The Midnight Library begins with top angst.

The MC, Nora, ditched her brother’s band (for which she wrote songs) and her fiancée, in one fell swoop. She bumps into one of her brother’s friends on the street. It does not go well:

Ravi: Ever cleaned pub toilets, Nora?

Nora: I’m having a pretty shit time, too, if we’re doing the Misery Olympics.

Ravi cough-laughed. A hardness momentarily shadowed his face. “The world’s smallest violin is playing.”

This is indeed a very promising beginning.

Summer Reading: July

During the month of July, self read seven books.

The seventh is The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig, which she began yesterday (Enjoying it hugely. Has Bridget Jones Diary feelz, at least the opening pages do, but darker)

She read two self-help psychology books, two histories (Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II, by Keith Lowe, and The Reason Why, by Cecil Woodham-Smith, about the mistakes that led to the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava), a murder mystery (The Thursday Murder Club, by Richard Osman, which she hugely enjoyed), and her second Elizabeth Kolbert: Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future.

Onward!
