what cat read: october 2016

Welcome to the first first edition of what cat read -- a series in which I go through all of the books I've read the past month, giving you all a brief summary, and then talking a little bit about my thoughts on them (with no spoilers, of course).

So what were my eyes and mind occupied with this month? Just three books that are quite different from each other: a poetry collection, a graphic novel, and a short story collection. October has been a pretty hectic month for me -- there's been far too many all nighters and late mornings, too many things I've forgotten about, and furious hours typing away at assignments and papers. Despite all that, though, I made the time to read two short books that weren't for school, Anya's Ghost (the graphic novel), Night Sky with Exit Wounds (the poetry collection), since they were short enough to get through in a couple sittings each. Interpreter of Maladies, on the other hand, was for an English class, but I loved the selections so much that I got a copy of the collection and read them all. Let's chat about them, now, shall we?
