What We’ve Been Reading
We spend a lot of time reading blogs, but we also like to get down with a good book! Check out our August reading list and hit the books.
The Trap by Melanie Raabe – A debut novel about a novelist who writes a novel to try to trap the man she thinks killed her sister. Meta? Oh yessa.
Collected Poems by Jack Gilbert – The only collection of poems that make us speechless. Well, we lied. It’s not the only collection that makes us speechless, but it’s one of them.
Strange Pilgrims by Gabriel Garcia Marquez – We’d make a Marquez monument if we could.
The World According to Star Wars by Carr R. Sunstein – We have no idea how we finished this one. It’s just a bunch of random half-baked thoughts put together. But we like that.
The Martian by Andy Weir – We love it because the author is a laboratory programmer and software engineer who just sort of accidentally wrote an amazing novel.
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald – This is an exploration of the human condition in relation to the most wild experiences a person can imagine.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – If you’re looking for a book with depressing characters, we’ve got you covered.
The Infinite Variety of Music by Leonard Bernstein – We’re loving Bernstein’s lectures about music and composition because he’s clear and passionate.
