Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
Today’s round-up has more nonfiction in the mix, partly to balance the heaps of brand-new fiction I’m reading for the 2021 Summer Reading Guide, and partly because I’ve found myself on a kick with books about the craft of writing (which inspired last week’s blog post). I frequently enjoy books about art, creativity, and the writing life—just not so many consecutive great ones on audio.
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.
