Recent Read

I usually share book reviews, monthly wrap ups, and monthly tbr (to be read) posts, but this post is a little different.  First, I want to share a book podcast that I've been obsessed with lately.  If you love to read and you've never heard of What Should I Read Next, you need to go subscribe to the podcast and then binge listen all of the episodes!

The podcast is run by Anne Bogel, or The Modern Mrs. Darcy, and it is my all time favorite pod cast. Every week, Anne interviews one avid reader.  They tell her three books they love, one book they hate, what they're currently reading, and what they want to change about their reading life.  She then recommends three books based on their preferences.  For any bibliophile, it is a treat to listen to the conversations.

Well!  This month, Anne's Summer Book Club starts up.  I joined on a whim, right before she the last date to join.  I am so glad I did!  We have a private Facebook group, and there are literally hundreds of avid readers all across the globe.  I've never been part of a book club before, but I imagine this is a good way to start.

The first book we're reading is The One In A Million Boy by Monica Wood.  For the next two weeks, we'll be diving into discussions about this book. I couldn't wait to start reading it.  In fact I started reading The One In A Million Boy this weekend while we were in Charleston.  Friends, summer reading has officially begun and I can't contain my excitement.  I've been reading quite a bit lately, so I will have a large pile of books to discuss in my June wrap up post.  Yay!

What do you plan on reading this summer?  What are you reading right now?
