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 month I’ve been reading more than usual. I believe it’s due to a new habit: I don’t typically read first-thing, but recently, on cooler mornings (which means anything less than 75 these days) I’ve been reading on the front porch—and in these morning sessions, I’ve been opting for nonfiction. Those small sessions add up.
I suspect that accounts for my Quick Lit assortment today: while usually this list is novel-heavy, today I have three memoirs, all unusual in their own way, a short story collection, and one novel. I hope you enjoy the change of pace.
I’ve also been reading a ton on audio lately, thanks to running and weeding, and have indicated which titles were great in that format below.
This is only a small smattering 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. (That’s especially true for yesterday’s episode with the Goodreads crew.)
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments.
