It seems we’ve gone a bit overboard with these national and international days, but National Book Lovers Day is certainly one I can get behind. And frankly, there’s something a bit decadent about it landing mid-week. Almost permission to sneak off and read on the sly, instead of doing whatever it is you’d be doing on a random Tuesday.
I’ve got my nose deep in manuscripts at the moment, so I will resist the urge to play hooky because I feel like reading client projects and submissions definitely falls into the spirit of the day. But I do hope to find some time this evening to settle in on the couch with a nice glass of wine and a good book with a cover.
So what’s everyone reading? Any recommendations?

I would recommend ACCORDING TO LUKE, by Rosanne Dingli as a summer read. This is a mystery loaded with art, culture and fascinating characters and more than a little skulduggery. Beautifully written, it works on a premise that could shatter a large part of Western culture and belief it it catches on, and St Luke is at the core of it all.
In the absence of that, try one of my African Memoir series! 🙂
As a second book for the summer may I suggest FINDING TRAVIS, by Melissa Bowersock. Set in Arizona in 2016, the story takes a sudden and unexpected trip back in time to 1877 with all sorts of interesting dilemmas, opportunities and interesting twists. It’s a compelling tale, well told, that will make you want to read more. It’s a great read. 🙂
Sounds intriguing! I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.
I’m reading CHALLENGER DEEP by Neal Shusterman, MISERY by Stephen King, and THE GLASS HOUSE by Jeannette Walls. All different genres. I can never read just one.
I have that same problem, always several books on the go.
I highly recommend ” I Let You Go” by Clare Mackintosh and I also recently finished reading The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty (great beach read). About to start The Silent Wife…it’s been compared to Gone Girl.
