Some Possible Solutions Miracle

I saw this sun this week, you guys! I swear it was there for nearly half a day before we were blasted with more rain. All this dreary weather is really throwing me for a loop and the forecast for Chicago isn’t helping much either. I’m just going to cross my fingers and hope I pack the right clothes for what seems like a pretty wide variety of weather for BEA. I’m hopping on a plane Wednesday morning and will be in book bliss through Saturday, so things may be a little quiet here. But you can follow along with all the shenanigans on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat!

I’ll be surrounded by books all week, but I don’t imagine I’ll have much reading time in Chicago. Right now I’m really enjoying The Miracle on Monhegan Island by Elizabeth Kelly and I’m hoping to finish it up before leaving. I also just started Some Possible Solutions by Helen Phillips (the first few stories were fantastic!) and Wise Blood by Flannery O’Connor. Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in a bit of uninterrupted plane reading so I can keep enjoying all the great reads!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  • Have so much fun at BEA!! I’m sad to miss it, but am looking forward to all the recaps and will follow on social media. I loved the first few stories of Some Possible Solutions as well. And I’m planning to try Monhegan Island on Tuesday when it comes out.

  • JoAnn @ Lakeside Musing

    Have fun at BEA! Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  • Oooh, The Miracle on Monhegan Island sounds like a great choice; I loved The Last Summer of the Camperdowns, so you’ll have to keep me posted! Hope you have an amazing time in Chicago; I’ll definitely look forward to some updates via social media!

  • Have fun at BEA! It looks like a lot of bloggers I follow are going this year – hopefully you’ll get to meet up with some of them!

  • Have fun at BEA! Look after my girl Andi! :D

  • Gina

    Have fun! Wise Blood is queued up next on Audible!

  • Have an amazing time at BEA!

    I hope you enjoy the O’Connor. I haven’t read her work in too long!!

  • Lauren @ Malcolm Avenue Review

    Have fun in Chicago! Such a great town, hope the weather cooperates. Say hi to anyone I know and like. ;) I tried O’Connor, discussion for another time why I just couldn’t do it. Will be curious to hear about this selection. And the Phillips. I was of two minds about TBB, but her writing is fabulous.

    • Oh how I wish you could be there! O’Connor is my book club pick for the month, so I’m curious how it will go (only read her shorts before).

  • Yeah I happen to be in DC at the moment and I’m surprised by how gloomy & rainy it’s been. Geez if only we could have some rain out West. I’m about to start The Excellent Lombards by Jane Hamilton who I think will be at BEA. Hooray. Hope to run into you there.

  • I hope you have a wonderful time at BEA – with the sun making an appearance, fingers crossed!

  • After a few weeks of muggy miserable weather, we got a little reprieve this past week of sunshine and cool breezes. That’s on its way out now, and we’ll really be in proper Louisiana summer (ugh), but I was happy to have a few more days where I could walk to the grocery stores without melting.

    I finished an excellent South African novel called Repercussions today, and now it’s back to my stack o’ library books to see what the next book’s going to be!

    Have a great time at BEA!

  • Can’t wait to see you! The weather here is so sketchy, plan on layers.

  • Have a wonderful time at BEA!

  • So jealous of all of you going to BEA! :) Have fun for me, too! Still haven’t gotten to the Camperdowns. I figure I’ll either love it or hate it, but assume it will be the former. The O’Connor looks to be interesting. Anxious to see what you think of these, as always! Just. Need. More. Reading. Time! :)

    PS, shoutout to Flannery. I live in Savannah and have been to her childhood home. I even painted my library her living room color. :-)
