Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
This past month I’ve seen the worst reading slump I’ve had in ages: for several weeks, my poor brain just could not get into any of the novels I picked up! There have been times when I would try to push through, but instead I pivoted to nonfiction—a mix you’ll see reflected in today’s round-up.
I’m still listening to audiobooks as well—and most of those are nonfiction as well, which is exceptionally unusual for me. (If you’re on the hunt for audiobook recommendations, our entire audiobook archives are right here, plus we highlighted great-on-audio selections in our festive holiday fiction post.)
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.
