Surprise Me Challenge: February ’16

In 2016, I am continuing to let choose a book from my TBR list, to be read sometime during the month. I currently have 318 books on this list?!?

thebasiceightJanuary’s randomly generated number is 142, so, SURPRISE!, I will be reading The Basic Eight by Daniel Handler, which is great since I have it on my bookshelf.

Here is the Goodreads description:

Flannery Culp wants you to know the whole story of her spectacularly awful senior year. Tyrants, perverts, tragic crushes, gossip, cruel jokes, and the hallucinatory effects of absinthe — Flannery and the seven other friends in the Basic Eight have suffered through it all. But now, on tabloid television, they’re calling Flannery a murderer, which is a total lie. It’s true that high school can be so stressful sometimes. And it’s true that sometimes a girl just has to kill someone. But Flannery wants you to know that she’s not a murderer at all — she’s a murderess.
