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)

WSIRN Ep 287: I want to be where the readers are

We’ve talked with lots of English majors who need a break from the books before finding joy in reading again, but today’s guest is living the opposite experience: her studies have rejuvenated her reading life and are keeping her love of literature alive.

“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.”

Amber Anastasi 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.

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!
