reading challenge update 1

2 hours, 196 pages
A Carnivore's Inquiry
I'm not finished with this one but am getting sleepy so stopped to update. This book is interesting. It plays out along the lines of the typical young woman coming of age kind of thing, kind of reminding me of The Dive from Clausen's Pier, except everyone in this book is using each other. The major difference here is that there is a thread of cannibalism that weaves through everything that happens. It's very strange and mildly spooky. I am hoping for a payoff. We shall see.

Yeah, the sleepy thing is getting to me, too. I'm not used to sitting still for so long. Good luck on your reading. It is a nice touch to include your favorite books of the year.
