The Wager by David Grann----interesting contrast to Endurance in the way the crew pulled together in one and disintegrated into factions in The Wager

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles---a genuinely enjoyable book with great characters

I LOVED the Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, the Majority by Elizabeth Silver, and Pageboy by Elliot Page.

Translated works: the Postcard by Anne Berest, both Madame Victoria and Party Wall by Catherine Leroux

Audio: The Wager by David Grann, Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, and Pageboy

The Postcard, Hello Beautiful, The Whispers, and Tom Lake have been my favorite reads this summer (so far)! I’m looking forward to reading The Covenant of Water and Alice Hoffman’s new book later this month. It’s still summer for several more weeks...I’m not rushing it to end!!!

YELLOWFACE by R.F. Kuang is the perfect book of summer!

I also devoured FOURTH WING by Rebecca Yarros, because I can’t avoid a book with THAT much hype.

Ten Caesars: Roman emperors from Augustus to Constantine by Barry S. Strauss: a super readable yet comprehensive book about something I’ve always been interested in.

Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley: a delightful light read that was perfect for reading outdoors while watching the kiddos.

Madhouse at the End of the Earth by Julian Sancton: I love polar exploration stories!

Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis: Wow. Just wow. I will have to read this again soon.

The Labors of Hercules Beal by Gary Schmidt: listened to this as an audiobook with the kids on a road trip, and it’s fantastic!

Slow reading summer for me, sadly (though a lot of that has been taken over by Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom so I’m not that sad. With that said, I really enjoyed Fleishman is in Trouble and am about halfway through Age of Vice and have loved it so far.
