I’m back from a fantastic few days at the beach and (believe it or not!) I only overpacked by one book. Being without the internet gave me plenty of time to focus on relaxing and reading, so I was able to finish Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel, The Nakeds by Lisa Glatt, and In the Country by Mia Alvar. I also got a good start on The Ambassador’s Wife by Jennifer Steil, so I’m in the middle of that right now.
The Ambassador’s Wife is pretty chunky, so I’ve been straying toward a few other things while reading. I picked up and finished Kate Harding’s Asking For It pretty quickly over the weekend (tons of highlighting in this one) and couldn’t resist diving right in when my library hold for Louisa Hall’s Speak arrived. I’m on a bit of a reading high right now, but we’re talking about summer slumps over at The Socratic Salon if you want to come chat about how your summer is going.
