July 2017

  • For an intense romance that will have you turning the pages so quickly they may rip: White Fur by Jardine Libaire
  • For the most beautiful prose on the ebbs and flows of the human mind: To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
  • For a book that will make people look at you funny as you laugh out loud while reading: Nuclear Family by Susanna Fogel
  • For a dark, gripping adventure: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
  • For a book not about the destination but instead about getting there: Outline by Rachel Cusk
  • For a much needed nostalgic romp through the Metropolitan Museum of Art: From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
  • For a chance to walk a mile in the endlessly entertaining shoes of the assistants of NYC: The Assistants by Camille Perri
  • For a chance to consider the role of technology in our society: Touch by Courtney Maum
  • For a sprint down the sinister streets of Athens: Running by Cara Hoffman
  • For a memoir that masters both snark and vulnerability : The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher (not pictured – library book!)

July was an amazing month of reading for me. I enjoyed so many of the books that I read (except for Katie Kitamura’s A Separation).  Happy reading!
