Need to pick up the pace... my daughters & I have a summer reading challenge each year and we are off! I have to subtract these first 184 pages (this is strictly a quantity challenge!)

The Loved One | Evelyn Waugh

Currently reading. We went to Hatchard's in London. It has been a bookstore since 1797. This was the novella that they picked as their favorite in past 200 years.

lisamathilda I kept it as it is a souvenir from Hatcherd‘s. I didn‘t care for it however. 4y

A kind of dreamy tale with some underlying darkness. I enjoyed. #readharder

I have been behind on my reading. This was a quick and excellent argument for feminism.

Advance reader's copy loaned to me. It has grown on me. At first I was a bit iffy on it.

Beautiful. I loved the focus on the friends of that pre-adolescent/early adolescent age. The things we know and don't know about each other.

Also reading this. Today it was the bath book while I got the dust off from cleaning in the garage.

Sometimes you just need a good reference- I have already read more of it than you'd've thought.

Was going to wait. Succumbing to temptation.

lisamathilda Enjoyed heartily! I am now wondering what it would've been like to read the screenplay before seeing the movie. 6y

Really appreciate his humor and humanity. Adore how he writes about his mom.
