The Only Best Books of 2015 List Worth Reading (Because I Combined All the Other Ones)

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — It's that time of year again! Gift wrap, eggnog, awkward family arguments over honey-baked hams. And most important: cookies! No just kidding-books! With another 12 months of publishing under our collective belts (which are currently loosened due to the aforementioned cookies) it's time for the annual rundown of those books that made our hearts sing...

The Fear Street Books Are Back, and R.L. Stine Offered Me Some Of His French Fries

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — R.L. Stine has been murdering teenagers for 30 years. Considered the king of young-adult horror fiction-he remembers being described as a "literary training bra for Stephen King"-Stine is best known as the author of the popular 1990s book series Goosebumps and Fear Street. In the same way J.K.

A Brief History of Seven Killings: Not Brief, Includes About a Billion Killings

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — To go from reading A Brief History of Seven Killings to reading anything that isn't A Brief History of Seven Killings is like running a marathon with ankle weights and then taking them off for a walk around the block. A challenging, sweeping, impressive novel, ABH7K is a mental and emotional workout.

Jonathan Franzen Is a Basic Bitch, But I’m OK With It

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Like most great controversies, it all started with Oprah. Back in 2001, Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections was selected for Oprah's Book Club, at a time when OPC was nirvana for publishers-an immediate launching pad to record-breaking sales and endless press. Franzen shot some b-roll with O, but his invitation for an official sit-down was rescinded after a series of...

Maggie Nelson Should Explain Everything to Everyone

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Sometimes-often, if you're lucky-you'll read a book you want to share with the world, the kind of book whose praises you sing to family, friends and coworkers. The kind of book you gift so indiscriminately at Christmas-"and YOU get a copy! and YOU get a copy!"-that loved ones are convinced you must be making a cut of the...

E.L. James Human Centipedes Herself With Grey

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Oh how I missed Christian Grey. His stoic intensity, his impeccable suit collection, his way with small words. His twisted cliche of a past and complacent cliche of a future. His contempt for normal relationships and yet powerlessness in the face of the most boring woman on earth. His playroom.

My Weekend With Charles Manson

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Guys, there are a lot of things I recommend you do in this lifetime-go on a road trip, skydive, eat more than 1,500 calories in a single sitting-but reading the 675-page Helter Skelter in a mere four days is not one of them. That shit will fuck with your head.

Chris Harrison’s The Perfect Letter Is a Festival of Cliches

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — I suppose it's not surprising that someone let Chris Harrison write a book. The diminutive all-American host of The Bachelor and Bachelorette has participated in some 29 seasons of televised romantic Hunger Games, during which time he's perfected the art of soberly watching men and women choose their future fiancees via a series of melodramatic flower...

Megan Daum Might Be The Lovechild of Fran Lebowitz And Nora Ephron

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Sometimes I discover writers whose brains I'd love to poke around in, whose ideas are either so different from mine or so inherently unique that to read something of theirs is like tiptoeing into another universe. If I had to be honest, I'd say these are the authors to whom I generally gravitate-my love of reading...
