With summer rapidly approaching, and the last cold spell of spring seemingly past, I wanted to run through the five books I’m most anticipating being released June through September.
The combination of a souring relationship and another move’s left with me little time to read or blog, but things have stabilized in time for the end of spring and start of summer.
In April I’ll continue to focus on reading LGBT fiction, while also starting to selectively make my way through the longlist of the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
For Reading Ireland Month 2019, I’ve selected five titles, one for each week’s theme, with the hope that I’ll have time to read other books beyond my list as the month unfolds.
For the month of January I’ll be focusing on reading fiction and nonfiction by writers in translation, from Haruki Murakami to Marguerite Duras.
For this week of Nonfiction November I’ll be reading an eclectic mix of literary journalism and cultural criticism, from Susan Orlean’s The Library Book to Zadie Smith’s Feel Free: Essays.
