WHAT A WEEK. Our Summer Reading Guide Unboxing live events were so fun yesterday! If you’re sad to have missed out on the best bookish event of the year and our exclusive expanded guide, join the MMD Book Club or Patreon at any time and gain access to all past events and perks.

The basic edition of the 2021 Summer Reading Guide comes out on Monday! Subscribers, check your email at 9:00 am Eastern for our 10th annual guide.

This week has been a whirlwind of Summer Reading Everything, but this weekend I’m watching TWO kids graduate, catching up on appointments, and possibly going to a restaurant for the first time since March 2020. I hope you have something fun to look forward to this weekend.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • The Secret Life of Deesha Philyaw. I’ve been wondering how this book happened to be published by WVU Press and really appreciated the other facets this article explored. Such a great piece.

Don’t miss these posts:

  • The ten item wardrobe. This concept doesn’t overwhelm me like the mix-and-match possibilities of the capsule wardrobes do.

Upcoming Events:

  • May 24: 2021 MMD Summer Reading Guide: We’re emailing the 10th annual Summer Reading Guide to all newsletter subscribers at 9:00 am Eastern time! Make sure you’re signed up.
  • May 24, 7 pm ET: In conversation with author Brooke Lauren Davis: Join me for an event—in person or online—at Carmichael’s Bookstore where I’ll interview author Brooke Lauren Davis about the release of her new book The Hollow InsideMore details here.
  • May 25, 7 pm ET: Live chat with author Stacey Lee: Time for our MMD Book Club discussion of The Downstairs Girl with author Stacey Lee! (Events are available as replays for members who cannot attend live.)
  • June 22, 1 pm ET: Live chat with author Emily Henry: Time for our MMD Book Club discussion of People We Meet On Vacation with author Emily Henry! (Events are available as replays for members who cannot attend live.) We’re also planning a When Harry Met Sally watch party for June, of course.

Have a great weekend!

    I hope you like your one-shoulder swimsuit, Anne! The style is so flattering. I have one I bought 15 years ago (!) at Gap and still get so many compliments on it. Can’t let it go.

    A Once-In-A-Lifetime Chance to Start Over resonated with me. There are things I did not miss during the pandemic and I won’t be going back to them.
