Over the last 6 weeks, I took a complete sabbatical from all non-fiction reading.
Instead, I immersed myself in the fictional lives of others.
I walked side-by-side with teens struggled with racism in a small town, daughters caring for their depressed mothers, sisters navigating corruption, friends reminiscing as they faced the first in their circle to die, neighbors supporting one another through their struggles, police offers trying to solve a crime, etc.
In total, I read 21 books in the last 6 weeks.
Here's the full list:
All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir
A Gentlemen in Moscow by Amor Towles
One, Two, Three by Laurie Frankel
Beautiful World Where Are You by Sally Rooney
This Tender Land by William Kent Kreuger
Ordinary Grace by William Kent Kreuger
Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi

Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner
Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore
Death in Dordogne by Martin Walker

You'll notice that I got into a few police series, thanks to a recommendation from a friend, before the summer started.
What did you read this summer?
