#16. Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple
★★★★★ – I loved this book. Flawed but fabulous, it’s a collection of correspondence compiled by a teenaged girl after her mother, Bernadette, disappears. Many great voices, exceptional rants, and subtle developments make this a hugely entertaining read. I highly recommend it.
A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers
I haven’t read the blurb, but so far this is the story of an American businessman in Saudi Arabia, pitching to build a city for a King. I’m about 20% of the way into this one so far, and quite enjoying it.
