So, maybe lying a little bit, because I’m not actually here right now. It’s really Sunday and I’m getting myself together to head to Virginia’s Eastern Shore, so by the time you read this I’ll either be in the car with a cranky dog or plunked in the sun on the beach. I haven’t read all the books in the image yet, but I’m bringing them with me: Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel, The Nakeds by Lisa Glatt, The Ambassador’s Wife by Jennifer Steil, Landfalls by Naomi J. Williams, and In the Country by Mia Alvar. We’ll see what comes back read.
After reading The Remarkable Rise of Eliza Jumel by Margaret A. Oppenheimer I finished Go Set a Watchman in a bit of a fever dream on Friday. While I’m still gathering all my thoughts and probably won’t say much until our Socratic Salon discussion next month, I absolutely agree with everything Thomas at Hogglestock says in this great post—it will answer your big questions with no spoilers if you’re still on the fence.
