Another summer Monday, and another post on the bookish meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I hope everyone is finding time for some summer relaxation with great reading material.
I will be taking the next few days off from blogging this week; it's time for some family fun. I will NOT be taking a break from reading, of course! I will post an update in about a week.
Last week on the blog, I posted reviews of these books:
You can read my review of The Vacationers by Emma Straub here. For me, it was a quick and light read, suitable for a poolside afternoon, but I had been hoping for more depth. I also reviewed Susan Coll's entertaining dark comedy The Stager, and you can read my review of that new novel here. And here you can read my review of Lily King's wonderful novel Euphoria, about a love triangle of anthropologists in the 1930s (sounds intriguing, right?).
Last week I also posted my Top Ten Favorite Classic Books. Yes, I was more than a week late on this Top Ten Tuesday list! Oh well, it's such a terrific topic that I decided to post my list anyway, under the "better late than never" theory. You can read my list here.
Here is a piece of good blogging news. I was asked to be a tour host for a blog tour for the first time. On August 13, I will be hosting a tour stop on TLC Book Tours. Here is the book I'll be reading:
Jon Enfield's The New Men, published in May of this year by Wayzgoose Press, sounds like a very interesting piece of historical fiction about a man working for the Ford Motor Company at the start of the twentieth century. I'm looking forward to diving into it, and to posting my first review as part of a blog tour. Thanks so much to TLC Book Tours for inviting me to serve as tour host.
I am currently reading ...
Chris Bohjalian's latest novel, Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands. Bohjalian is a favorite writer of mine, and I have been waiting with great anticipation for this!
I hope everyone has a terrific week of reading! As I said, I will be taking a week off from blogging, but I will be back next week.
