I’ve made a goal of reading 150 books this year. Here’s what I’ve read recently.

Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut FarmRoseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm by Roseanne Barr

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I loved Roseanne’s sitcom, and I enjoy re-watching it because the themes remain relevant after nearly twenty years – it aged well. I had gone into this book expecting a more observational collection of political and industry musings, but half the book is memoir. Not that Roseanne didn’t lead an interesting youth, but I had hoped the book would be more like her Twitter feed.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve had the book for a while, and read it on two long plane trips. The story hooked me almost from the beginning – very enjoyable for high epic fantasy, and I don’t read much of the genre. I do not watch the series, I had planned to read the books first, so it’s off to the next one.
