Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
Readers, we reached a 2021 Summer Reading Guide milestone this week! I’m sorting book titles on index cards into possible categories across my kitchen counter, which gives me both immense satisfaction and a bit of a headache. (It’s so hard to decide!) In between buzzy upcoming books for the guide, I’m making time to read a little nonfiction, a few recommendations from friends, and an evergreen favorite.
This is just a sampling of the books I’ve read since our last round of Quick Lit. If you’re interested in hearing more about my recent reads, I highly recommend tuning into my podcast What Should I Read Next. In a show about books, I can’t help but discuss my current reading.
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments.
