This past week a fellow Salemite asked area Twitterers (Tweeps) what good books they had read this summer. I hadn't spent time thinking about the titles I've been digesting--until that moment. I haven't read as many as my first empty nest summer, but it's close, very close.
Margaret Atwood, Penelopiad: The Myth of Penelope and Odysseus,
(interesting, but not sure I'd recommend it unless you're an Atwood fan)
Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle: A Memoir,
(very good and amazing it's someone's life story)
Jeannette Walls, Half-Broke Horses,
(good, but not as good as Glass Castle)
Rick Moody, The Ice Storm
(very good. interesting look into 60"s/70's family life)
Sarah Addison Allen, The Girl Who Chased The Moon
(if you're in the mood for something light, a tiny bit sappy and slightly predictable.)
Chris Bohjalian ,The Law of Similars
(what I'm currently devouring and plan on buying other books by this author.)
What are you reading?
