Summer Books

Hey everyone, thought I'd share what I've been reading this summer. Lots of inspiration in the likes of Mary Karr and Heather O'Neil. Really glad I stumbled across Mary Karr especially. She was featured on an episode of Dear Sugar Radio and I thought she was whip smart and a compelling voice. The kind of person you want to sit down with and talk to about writing. 

The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips 

Lit by Mary Karr

Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neil 

Birdie by Tracey Lindberg 

Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha by Roddy Doyle 

The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

Just cracking East of Eden at my partner's insistence. I watched Matilda a couple weeks ago. It's funny how formative those library and books scenes were for me as a kid. Like when she's pulling that wagon full of books home. I remember that being important to me. 

 I'm looking forward to autumn and everything it brings. Sweaters, books and cozy cups of coffee.
