Happy June!

What books are you taking with you to the beach?

Annice (asevett) | 37 comments I just started reading The Marsh King's Daughter. It took a while to get into the story but I like how it tells the story of the narrator's past and the present in alternate chapters.

Carla (writeon1913) Finished listening to Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan this weekend! I love listening to these books far more than if I read them. Cannot wait to see the movie next year for Crazy Rich Asians!

I am also reading Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult. Great read so far.

Yesterday I started reading Never Caught: The Washingtons' Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge which came out earlier this year. I learned of Ona Judge last year after reading The Invisibles: The Untold Story of African American Slaves in the White House and am glad to get a chance to learn more about her and her life as well as her escape.
