January Book Links

I read 10 books in January and in my most recent YouTube video, I give a brief synopsis of each book and then try to find a link between each book and the book I read after it. Click to watch the video.
I’ve listed the book titles below, with their common threads in blue italics 
a girl endures a traumatic event during childhood and carrying the scars into adulthood 
both memoirs about sabotaging their relationships with their mothers 
a girl who pushes away her writer friend to cater to an obsession 
boys who reject the ways of their fathers 
The White Tiger /Aravind Adiga
boys who see their fathers being servile to other men 
The Remains of the Day /Kazuo Ishiguro
features a road trip to reconnect with someone from the past 
Sing, Unburied, Sing /Jesmyn Ward
feature racial tension between blacks and whites 
Disgrace /J. M. Coetzee
female characters with dogs 
Chemistry /Weike Wang
main character relates science theories to life 
important scenes happen in an office and just outside it when the main character takes a break 

Affiliate links include so you can buy the books and read them yourselves.

What about you? What did you read in January? Did you find common threads running through them?

  1. Kudos on managing to find Bush so many good books: some are on my TBR already.

    I barely managed to read 8, and some were a bit of guilty light reading for pleasure.

      light reading has it’s place. Like candy. I enjoy a bit of both at times 🙂
