Another Monday and I’m asking again: what are you reading? Anything really good? Summer-y? I’m trying to keep up with my reading but my favorite time to read (at night in bed) isn’t working out well these days because I fall asleep so quickly. I try and do it during the day but we’re now in the midst of preparing to move out of our rental house so everywhere I look is something that needs to be packed, shredded, organized or thrown away, which is not conducive to focusing on a book. My new mantra is “July 1st. July 1st. July 1st.” For better or worse that is when we’ll be in our new house and I can start unpack my life.
Thankfully, there are some exciting books to read this week!
I loved Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians so was really excited to see he has a new novel out. I started it last night and am already in love. Sigh. There is nothing like sharp satire on the over-the-top lives of the uber-rich to make me laugh.
Matthew Quick wrote Silver Linings Playbook which I did not read but I did like the movie so in a reverse move I’m going to read a book based on the movie of the author’s previous work. Convoluted reasoning but it works for me.
I Saw a Man is my wildcard pick for the week. No idea about it and no recommendations from anyone I know. I’m getting all rebellious so we’ll see how it goes.
Dish the dirt, readers! Are you in the midst of a great book or finding the beginning of summer too busy for reading? Do you have a favorite time and place to read?
