Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
I’ve read more than usual this past month, thanks in large part to a recent beach trip. (That above bookshop photo was taken at Seaside, Florida’s Sundog Books, and you can catch me reading on the beach here.) While there I divided my time between forthcoming releases (Fall Book Preview, here I come!), new spring and summer selections, and a backlist title or two.
Today’s collection of recent reads is nicely varied: an interesting memoir, a classic espionage thriller, a vicarious vacation to Maine, a gut punch of an essay collection, a quirky Japanese novel in translation, a heartfelt coming of age story, and a snappy love story I couldn’t put down.
I capture all the books I read in the My Reading Life book journal (which I absolutely took on vacation with me!) which makes it easy to compile a variety of recent reads for my monthly roundup.
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments!
