Good morning! After a year-long hiatus from the blog, I’ve finally felt ready to start posting again. It’s been an amazing year - from starting and excelling at a new job to getting married, a lot has changed. I’ll be posting what I’m interested in, treating this space as a journal/record of our lives at this point in time. I can’t wait to share what I’ve got lined up, so let’s get started!
I’ve been picking up my reading pace over the last few months, and today am sharing the 4 books I finished in July:
To Shake the Sleeping Self by Jedediah Jenkins - I reread this because I’m always reading stories on some sort of travel during the summer months, and Jed is one of the best storytellers there is.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (not pictured) - a friend lent me this novel because apparently we all HAVE to read it, and that sentiment rings true. I won’t spoil anything, but let’s just say this story weaves multiple genres together and you won’t be able to put it down.
Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney - another quick read, dissecting relationships between friends and more-than-friends. Again, I won’t spoil anything, however it does say on the back cover how doomed the main relationship in the book is. That is all ;).
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler - waited a long time to read this one, but I’m so happy I finally got the chance! A cross between Devil Wears Prada and the restaurant/wine world, this book was nostalgic but also adult at the same time. A grown-up and gritty version of the books I read as a teen, and I loved every second of it.
Please, please share what you’ve been reading lately, as I’m always looking for new material! Thanks for reading, and have a fun day!
