Hello friends and happy JUNE! We are so excited that summer is upon us full of lazy days and summer reading and excellent adventures. We’re busy over here planning literary dinner parties, real life escapades, and plotting our summer TBR’s. You all know we love to read seasonally, and we have been waiting for this exact moment to pick up a few books that have been waiting for us through the colder months! What’s on your summer TBR?

“Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder”

AROUND THE WEB

Where the Crawdads Sing is still getting so much buzz. Delia’s interview with Read It Forward is a wonderful read while we anxiously await the film! The book is a perfect summer read if you' haven’t yet.

There are countless lists and guides out there for summer reading, but we’re on the hunt for the best of the best. A list on thought-provoking books that inspire empathy and joy is too good to pass up.

The Millions put out their most anticipated June releases the other day, and the line up is GOOD.

Alllll the love for our small town libraries! This was such a sweet piece, and a good reminder for us all to appreciate the amazing resource that our libraries are.

What book made you fall in love with fantasy? Fantasy authors share theirs!

In praise of the DNF (did not finish). We could not agree with Sarah more!

I’m increasingly inspired by those who live abroad (from me) and share books that are specific to their geographical location. I learn about so many novels from Padmaja that I wouldn’t otherwise find, and she has good taste!

Oh so pretty, Kat visits the best places. Two plane tickets to England please!

WHAT WE’RE READING

Michaela - I’m headed into the weekend determined to finish Milkman, and to hopefully pick up Picnic at Hanging Rock to continue my streak of reading short classics!


Rikki - May was such a great reading month, and June is looking just as great. I’m over half way through Franny and Zooey and really enjoying it, alongside The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, and Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking.
