I’ve hit a good groove in my reading schedule and am on track to hit my goal of 100 books this year (58 down!). If you haven’t done this challenge before, please join in! It’s been fun reading everyone else’s and I’ve found plenty to add to my to-read list! You can follow my progress on my Goodreads page!

Best book you’ve read so far “The Nickel Boys” Colson Whitehead

Favorite sequel-Party of Two “Jasmine Guillory- I think this counts

New release you haven’t read but want to– ughhh this list is long so top 3 newish books:
1) “The Vanishing Half” by Brit Bennet (her book “The Mothers” is on my bookshelf and I want to read it first)
2) ‘The Chiffon Trenches’ By André Leon Talley – reading now!
3) ‘Sex and Vanity’ By Kevin Kwan
oh also, “Rodham: A Novel by Curtis Sittenfeld” and “One to Watch” Kate Stayman-London

I’m bad at this.

Most anticipated release for second half of the year“Crosshairs” Catherine Hernandez
“I Have Something to Tell You: A Memoir” Chasten Buttigeg

Biggest disappointment- “Such a Fun Age” – I’ll cover this in my July recap.

Biggest Surprise- “Godshot” – Chelsea Bieker

A book that made you cry- “The Two Lives of Lydia Bird” Josie Silver & “Normal People” Sally Rooney

A book that made you smile – “Red, White, & Royal Blue” Casey McQuinston

Most beautiful book you acquired this year– “The Dutch House” Ann Patchett

Book you want to read by the end of the yearThe Splendid and The Vile. I have the audiobook and I’m about 15% in but it’s dense and I want to be able to focus on it. It’s definitely a good one for walks.

What’s one book you want to finish by the end of the year?
