The Governesses

This was only 100 pages long but still took me a while to read. It felt a bit like reading a fairytale – you want to devour every detail. I will tell you that it is a bit weird (the governesses essentially attack strangers in the woods to have their way with them), but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I think it’s important to read more books that take us out of our comfort zones and makes us think a little. I really want to challenge myself to read more books like that this year. Books you can’t necessarily breeze through, and books that make you really think. The NY Times review of the book (they call it seriously weird and seriously excellent!) says everything better than I could say myself, so definitely read that!
