Summer Reading, Fall Reading…
Wiggling slowly back into a regular work routine, as temperatures fall (especially over the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival weekend!) and as leaves begin showing their fall colours in my part of the country, I’m pausing here to recommend two very different books I gave 5-star reviews to this summer. A way of trying to hold onto the season? Perhaps?)
- Driving Minnie’s Piano by Lesley Choyce, a memoir Lesley gave to my husband.
- Juliet’s Nurse by Lois Leveen, which I happened across searching e-book fiction available at GPL.
I’m looking forward to getting fully immersed in my writing again and to my fall reading, too, including a couple of books that authors read from at the chilly festival in Eden Mills.
- Adult Onset by Ann-Marie MacDonald, which I was pleased to see released in paperback.
- His Whole Life by Elizabeth Hay, which after hearing her read, I decided I couldn’t wait for the paperback. What a treat it was to meet this author and to hear how one question from her 10 year old son (What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done?) inspired her latest novel.
What’s the best book you read this summer?
What are you looking forward to reading to this fall?
