I read a lot of novels and travel as much as I can. #HawthorneBlake is my favorite kid. http://nomadreader.blogspot.com

If that's not the perfect quote to include at the beginning of a memoir, I don't know what is.

Red, White & Royal Blue | Casey McQuiston

Monday morning reading with this gem of a book, which I'm quite enjoying, but I must admit: it's making me realize I have become a bit of a prude 😬 #homegirlsread #booksandcoffee

Dragonfairykats I know the feeling! I used to read explicit sex with no problem, but now I don't want any details. Behind closed doors, fade to black, or even only a hint of romance is ok now. I don't mind steam, but I don't need the whole fire. 3d

I am loving the humor and pop culture references in this novel, but I love reading outside on 60-degree mornings even more😍

That feeling when the last 10% of your book was really a reading group guide and you have time to start a new one (I broke up with the audiobook and wanted to read it instead) #booksandbooze

Since I listened to the first Class Mom novel, I have become one (PVC: Parent Volunteer Coordinator at our school), so I expect to laugh even more with this one.

I had so much fun with the first month of #LMPBC, but I also thought as I read, "I don't really know these readers, and it's fun. But wouldn't it be fun to do it with my three best friends from high school, as we're spread across four states?" They agreed and #homegirlsread was born! This is my first pick. And I am marking it up like crazy with underlines and hearts. #booksandbooze

TrishB @MicheleinPhilly apparently we‘re hitting 30 degrees this week, which means the country will come to a standstill and we‘ll have drought warnings. 2mo

Topeka School | Ben Lerner
post image

I feel incredibly lucky to have an early copy of this novel. It's not often a world-class novelist is a year ahead of you in school and writes a novel set in the decade & town in which you both grew up (and it's not NY or LA or London). Yes, we moved around a lot & I claim more than one city in an "it feels like home way," but of all of those, we get what everyone says is a great literary, political, modern historical Topeka novel?!

A special, surprising thing happened yesterday as I drove from Denver (where I'd been on vacation) to central Kansas (to visit one of my best friends). I unexpectedly passed Nicodemus, Kansas, so I U-turned to visit. Then I remembered I bring too many books on road trips, and I had this in my trunk. Cue me rereading the final scene where it took place and the unexpected highlight of my trip.

Cinfhen Love that!!!!! 3mo
