Checked Out from the Library

I went to the library last Sunday and look what I got:

Changing My Mind: Occasional Essays

Changing My Mind by Zadie Smith 

Her only published essay collection. I love Zadie Smith and I've recently once again been obsessed with her work, so knowing the brain behind the greatness is a must.

How to Be Alone

How to be Alone by Jonathan Franzen 

Another essay collection, because - why not?

The Year of Magical Thinking

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion 

Okay. Yet another essay collection. I know, I know. But I loved - and really recommend! - "Slouching Towards Bethlehem". So this was a natural follow-up.


Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler 

NOT an essay collection! It's a book about a young woman finding herself in the city and it's probably really cheesy and reminds me a great deal of Someday, someday, maybe by Lauren Graham, which I've chewed on for several MONTHS only to then give up on it, because it was - despite the wonderful narrator and author - so boring. But I won't stop believing in cheesy fiction to solve all my problems. Not yet.
