I've been in a bit of a reading rut lately, having started a new book on my Kindle that I feel too far into to abandon but too indifferent toward to complete. Womp.
So in an attempt to revive my reading passion, I made this list of books I'd like to read this summer based on reviews from sources I trust. Have you read any of these? What's on your summer reading list?
Over at NPR Books, Alan Cheuse writes, "As Lynch presents the story, it becomes an out of the ordinary creation, a novel in which sentence after sentence comes so beautifully alive in all the fullness of its diction and meaning that most other contemporary Irish fiction looks sheepish by comparison."
Book Riot's Rebecca Joines Schinsky writes, "Calling it now: this is one of the best novels of 2015, and we’ll be hearing about it for a long time."
Nami Mun writes, in the New York Times, "Even though the novel holds more dialogue and diegesis than plot revelations, it’s somehow still a page-turner, such is Shin’s gift for storytelling, as well as her careful cultivation of motifs." This is what I loved about Shin's earlier novel, Please Look After Mom.
