Review: Summer

"The briefest and slipperiest of the seasons, the one that won't be held to account - because summer won't be held at all, except in bits, fragments, moments, flashes of memory of so-called or imagined perfect summers, summers that never existed." ~ Ali Smith

June TBR

As life has gotten semi-back to normal, our reading time has taken a dive. So we didn’t get to all the books on our list last month but we’re grateful just to finally be able to hang out with loved ones again. With that in mind, we’re keeping our expectations for June a bit lighter than usual. 

How Beautiful We Were

“My mother always cautioned me against dwelling on the past and the future. What happened will never unhappen, she liked to say; what is to happen will happen—better you focus on what’s happening in front of you,” - Imbolo Mbue

Review: Hamnet

"She sees how she, Agnes, must remain calm, steady, must make herself bigger in a way, to keep the house on an even keel, not to allow it to be taken over by this darkness, to square up to it, to shield Susanna from it, to seal off her own cracks, not to let it in.”  ~ Maggie O’Farrell  

Review: Black Buck

“It’s the duty of every man and woman who has achieved some success in life to pass it on, because when we’re gone, what matters most isn’t what we were able to attain but who we were able to help.” - Mateo Askaripour
