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 had a lovely, if unusual, reading month: on a whim, I embarked on a personal literary project, and it’s greatly impacted what I picked up these last two months. And yet I’ve still managed to read some new, lots of old, and a handful of poetry collections. Today’s round-up reflects that variety.
My favorite part of my reading month is this: I read TWO books where I got to the end and immediately flipped back to the beginning to begin again. That doesn’t happen often, but I so love it when a book provokes that kind of reaction.
Of course, 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 also share what I’m currently reading in our weekly podcast newsletter: if you aren’t already signed up, click here to get on the list.)
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments.

P.S. My new reading journal is now out in the world and available for purchase wherever new books are sold. This weekend I signed a giant stack at my local indie Carmichael’s Bookstore: place your order now if you’d like one.
P.P.S. Speaking of My Reading Life: that top photo shows the habit tracker found on pages 12-13! It’s designed so you can shade in one diamond for each day you read of a given month, but it’s also designed to be flexible: because I read 363 days a year, I’m using it to track how many books I read every month instead.
