Cheers to the Weekend 2.1.19

20190131__RKR2171.jpg

Michaela is fully immersed into the house buying and selling process, so we’re stealing away every spare minute to get together, catch up, and talk books! We’re exploring new brunch spots around town and talking about our rather large stack of combined current reads. The rest of our weekends include prepping a house for the move, having dinner with friends, and hopefully some down time for reading! What are you up to?!

Around the web

I love this article with Rebecca Makkai on Lisa Gornick’s new novel.

So many amazing books won awards; two that I’ve read, and numerous waiting on my shelves. Here’s the interview, too!

We’re suckers for Modern Mrs. Darcy’s monthly round ups of ‘things I learned in…’

A bookstore tour of Ireland?! Yes, please!!!

I enjoyed this interesting article exploring 'Why We Forget Most of the Books We Read’. I bet you remember where you were when you read it, though!

Instagram

I love seeing readers who explore reading in multiple languages and what books are from those regions specifically. Cărțile spans an interesting variety of novels, many of which I love!

So many good literary lifestyle vibes and a flawlessly cohesive feed.

The ultimate adventurous bookish life! Mariah has us wanting to hop on a plane to anywhere, books in bag.

What We’re Reading

Michaela - I’m reading A Brightness Long Ago (thank you Berkley Pub for the complimentary early copy), and I’m so glad to have a new Guy Gavriel Kay novel in my hands!

Rikki - I’m so happy to be onto a new month of reading! I’ve excitedly began Calvino’s, If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller, along with We Were the Mulvaney’s.
