Books 31 - 40.

31. Roy - The God Of Small Things
Didn't like this very much; the writing was hard to keep reading.

32. Burrows - Guidelines For Mystical Prayer
Not afraid of being critical of some of the Carmelite saints' views on mystical prayer, this book gave a deep insight to it anyway, with a pictures of three connected islands.

33. Odell - How To Do Nothing: Resisting The Attention Economy
Surprisingly deep book on how to keep some detachment on modern life, to be yourself.

34. Fujii - The Enlightened Kitchen: Fresh Vegetable Dishes From The Temples Of Japan
Beautiful pictures, delicious food, would've liked more...

35. Moshfegh - My Year Of Rest & Relaxation
How much can you write about someone spending a year on pills, finding themselves and recovering on the way. The side characters keep the story lively, and help the main character to find her way over a life crisis.

36. Day - The Long Loneliness: The Autobiography Of The Legendary Catholic Social Activist
Although she lived many years after this book, this is still a great autobiography on how she became what she became, and what her social movement was and is about.

37. Lahiri - Unaccustomed Earth
Relationship stories, heartwarming, heartbreaking and stinging, yet worth it.

38. Mann - Secrets From The Eating Lab: The Science Of Weight Loss, The Myth Of Willpower, & Why You Should Never Diet Again
Some familiar things, of course, if you've kept reading books on food health, but still brought up some new stuff also.

39. Toomey - The Saffron Road: A Journey With Buddha's Daughters
You don't often hear much of the nun side of Buddhist life, but this book brings in all the variety, the obstacles and triumphs, of nuns' lives from around the world.

40. M.Mary Francis - A Right To Be Merry
Surprisingly cheerful account of Colettine Poor Clares community in Roswell, New Mexico in 1940s and 1950s, with an introduction/epilogue of how things have gone afterwards. Helps you to become familiar with their world, and answers some questions you might have, too.
