Good morning! I am back from a family trip, and posting again on this weekly bookish meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. I hope everyone had a terrific late summer week in reading last week.
I really have to confess that I didn't get a lot of reading done last week! Our trip was to Maine, and we were busy exploring and hiking most of the week. I thought we'd have more poolside relaxation time--which would have given me reading time--but instead we were constantly on the go. As a consolation, I got to see great views like this:
One bookish place I visited in Maine was so, so cute-- I have to add a picture of this as well. This is Pushcart Press & Bookstore in Sedgwick, Maine, which calls itself "the world's smallest bookstore." It has an eclectic mix of new and used fiction and non-fiction, and it operates on the honor system most of the time; you leave your cash in a cookie tin!
I did manage to finish reading this book....
Helen Oyeyemi's latest novel, Boy, Snow, Bird, was not a big winner for me. I will write a review in the next few days and try to express why. But at least reading it allowed me to complete my Summer TBR list.
I have started reading this book:
Audrey Magee's The Undertaking was a finalist for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction earlier this year, and it will be released in the U.S. on September 2.
Have a great week in reading!
