For the summer of 2020, I'm looking forward to new releases by Marisa de los Santos, Julie Buxbaum, J. Courtney Sullivan, David Mitchell, Chanel Cleeton, Imbolo Mbue, Brit Bennett, and more. I love reading every time of year, but summer just may be my favorite season. This year is shaping up to be a good one!(less)

The first is Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson; the second is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. If I had to bet, my money would be on Ng's. I thoroughly enjoyed them both myself. I hope that helps! (less)

“A good book, when we return to it, will always have something new to say. It's not the same book, and we're not the same reader”
Anne Bogel, I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life

“People read for a multiplicity of reasons. Nearly forty years in, I can tell you why I inhale books like oxygen: I'm grateful for my one life, but I'd prefer to live a thousand --and my favorite books allow me to experience more on the page than I ever could in my actual life.”
Anne Bogel, I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life

“When we share our favorite titles, we can't help but share ourselves as well. Shakespeare said the eyes are the windows to the soul, but we readers know one's bookshelves reveal just as much.”

Amber Marie Anne, what was the book you read when your son was sick? You mentioned it in your book. You took it with you because that was what was on your nightstand at the time.

Molly Thanks for adding me Anne - and Happy Anniversary. I also want to thank you for creating a podcast that is fun and accessible. So many are...pompous :-) I like to read ALL sorts of sorts, not just the high-brow "Let them know I am an intellect" stuff! I don't feel alone anymore in my love and nerdom!
