Here we are again, at the conclusion of yet another month.  My book list for September:

"Sh*t My Dad Says" by Justin Halpern:
This book was kind of funny.  Kind of.

"Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card:
I love this book!  I can't believe I'm only just now reading it; it is so good!  It is a quick read and highly recommended to all!  I never picked it up before because the sci-fi pretext put me off, but seriously: read it.

"The Postman Always Rings Twice" by James M. Cain:
Another must-read.  I devoured it-- I literally could not put this book down.  It's fast and reads like a short story.  Wow, I loved it.

"Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte:
A classic.  Although it could be pretty drawn-out at times, I really liked it, most probably because I admired the protagonist.

"Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov:
The interesting thing about this book is how disgusting, taboo, and real it is.  You don't pardon the pedophile writing it, but you do end up understanding him.  I even couldn't help pitying him at points.  It's not particularly well-written, and it's not a book for everyone, of course.  Reader beware-- this is an extended account of child molestation, imprisonment, and rape, told from the point of view of the offender pleading his case as an act of love.

"The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath:
Wow!  I was surprised at how good this book was!  It tells a story of a depressed girl.  The emotions expressed are so poignant and truly get into the head of someone suffering from depression.  It was so right-on, especially the expressed feelings of loneliness amongst others.  I recommend this to anyone who feels alone, depressed, or inexplicably sad at times.  You will see-- you are not the only one to suffer these thoughts.  You are not alone.

"A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man" by James Joyce:
I suffered through this book.  I hated it.  Do not read under penalty of boredom and confusion.
