How is it that I read so little this summer? I feel like I am always, always reading but this is evidence to the contrary. Still, maybe a paucity of books but all of them amazing.
Barbarian Days by William Finnegan
This is the book of my summer. So gorgeous, so lush and sweet and funny. I adored this book.
Swimming Home by Deborah Levy
How did I miss Deborah Levy? She's incredible. Brilliant!
Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson
I was sick today and just lay in bed reading this incredible book. It's the only thing that made me feel better.
The Power by Naomi Alderman
I am so lucky I got an early copy of this book. Run, don't walk! It's phenomenal.
Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Holy shit. This book is fabulous.
