What I’m Reading Monday, Aug. 3

Happy Monday, darlings! I just got home from a week at the lake with my family, and it was exactly what I needed. The weather was perfect, and I got in some good quality swimming, water skiing, tubing, kayaking, twilight boat rides, sunset gazing, chats with family members, and hammock reading. It was a much-needed distraction from some of the uncertainties in my life at the moment.

Remember how I said I’m terrible about overpacking books for vacations? Yeah. Of the six books I brought with me, I finished one and made it halfway through a second. To be fair, the first one was pretty long. I had a ton of fun reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan; it was a fantastic beach read without being too mindless. I also started Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff, which is kind of blowing me away. How can a person even write that beautifully?! Lastly, I’m still listening to The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan on audio, which I’m really enjoying!
