I'm Allison. I see a ton of theatre. I'm a fan of Green Day, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Weezer, Oasis, Adam Rapp, Emily Giffin, and Shakespeare. I run sometimes, and do yoga always.

I’ve read a lot of books this year.  Let’s recap.  

  1. The Kid (Dan Savage)
  2. The Art of Nonconformity (Chris Guillebeau)
  3. I Got the Show Right Here (Cy Feurer)
  4. The Year of Yes (Maria Dahvana Headley)
  5. Send Yourself Roses (Kathleen Turner)
  6. The Accidental Billionaires (Ben Mezrich)
  7. I Don’t Care About Your Band (Julie Klausner)
  8. I Love Everybody and Other Atrocious Lies (Laurie Notaro)
  9. Heart of the Matter (Emily Giffin)
  10. The Heart Says Whatever (Emily Gould)
  11. Bringing Down the House (Ben Mezrich)
  12. The Lost Continent (Bill Bryson)
  13. A Little Bit Married (Hannah Seligson)
  14. Committed (Elizabeth Gilbert)
  15. Wishful Drinking (Carrie Fisher)
  16. The Joy Diet (Martha Beck)
  17. Nobody Likes You (Mark Spitz)

Looking over those titles, it reveals that I read the same books over and over again.  It’s all chick-lit and memoirs, except for one.  What can I say, I favor non-fiction over fiction.  My favorites would probably be Nobody Likes You (obviously), A Little Bit Married (it was really interesting), The Accidental Billionaires (even though I’ve been told that it’s all made up), Send Yourself Roses (if you’re a theatre person, read this book), and I Got the Show Right Here (see previous).  

I’m working on “Not Since Carrie" right now (it’s really interesting, but written really dryly) and I already have a stack of new books to read this year including This is Where I leave You, The Hunger Games, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, Good in Bed, And The Band Played On, Eating Animals, Naked Lunch, Patti LuponeKingdom Coming, and The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and a few other Bill Bryson books too.  

Let’s see if I can get through all of these books before I head down to the Strand again.
