Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado

Jenny’s first review of the year

really liked it
How do you rate a book that was spellbinding from start to finish, and that you never ever want to read again because it filled you with an unspecified sense of dread that you couldn’t shake the entire three months it took you to read it?

Bullshit Jobs by David Graeber

Jenny’s last review of the year

really liked it
4.5, rounded up. The first half of the book was largely concepts I was already familiar with, albeit interestingly presented and well argued. The second half of the book I found denser and harder to get through, but also had more payoff in terms of tracing the first principles of our labour value system. Lots to chew on.
