Book Log – You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey

You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey by Amber Ruffin & Lacey Lamar [Little Shop of Stories]

Amber Ruffin is the current greatest late night host. Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert tie for second. John Oliver is up there, but maybe a different category of show? He’s kind of his own thing.

Thing is, I don’t really watch talk shows on a regular basis. So I bought this book to support her, if indirectly.

It’s a great book. It’s funny, but… even if they encourage us in the book to laugh or be amused, it’s a challenge. Because it’s not funny that this book can exist.

But… great book. Read it. And watch her show.

Piecing together the missing book logs…

Randomize: Forward by Andy Weir [audible]
I have no memory of this, but audible says I listened to it.

Don’t Panic: Douglas Adams and the Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Neil Gaiman
Enjoyable and witty walk through Adams’ life

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
Recommended on Schuler Books’ tiktok page, an well written and entertaining story with a twist that was too easy to figure out early in the book, but didn’t really impact enjoyment. [Audible]

Fated: Alex Verus Series, Book 1 by Benedict Jacka [Audible]
Witty magic-user story in present day. Does not write female characters well, but otherwise good world-building.

Shakespeare for Squirrels by Christopher Moore [Little Shop of Stories]
Good beach read.  C. Moore is always good light fare.
