mary  (mcagrimm) | 17 comments My first book is going to be Shirley, a novel about horror writer Shirley Jackson. A friend gave it to me in October and I've been meaning to start it every since.

Hilary (A Wytch's Book Review) (knyttwytch) Happy reading!

Valerie | 1 comments Good luck! I'm not sure what I'm starting with - probably sorting my books to see what I have.

Bummer: I didn't really like it. It was a kind of interesting idea, but I think I resented the characterization of Shirley Jackson, which put me off of it; also, the author was sort of trying to do Shirley Jackson, to mimic her prose, and she didn't do a very good job. So I don't really recommend it.

Kate (kateunabridged) | 5 comments Oh that is a bummer. Oh well. But one book down!

mary  (mcagrimm) | 17 comments Here's what I knocked off my list in January:
Shirley (see above)
Truly Madly Guilty (for a book group)
A Friend of the Earth

Also (of course!) a lot of non-TBR stuff.
