Read With Us

I don't know about you, but my reading tastes change a bit during the summer (and, apparently, during a pandemic; who knew). With the summer sunshine and more hours spent outdoors, I look to lighten up my reading with, oh . . . a "beach read." Maybe a Stephen King. A memoir, perhaps. Something quick, compelling, and even a little titillating maybe.

We think our fourth Read With Us book selection may just be a perfect summer read!


Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me is a memoir written by Adrienne Brodeur.  Although I haven't started reading it yet, Carole devoured it, and Bonny is already deep into it. The book promises to be interesting and compelling -- a memoir that reads like a novel -- and a real page-turner. It also promises to have just what every book group needs in a book selection: many discussable elements.

(I know some of you listen to the Happier podcast and may already be familiar with the book, as Gretchen and Elizabeth chose it for their Happier book group last winter.)

We'll be reading the book in June and July, and hosting our blog discussion in August.  Watch for more information about the book and the author during our promotional posts next month. In the meantime, you can try to find the book at your local library now that many are offering curbside pick-up. The book is also available for Kindle ($12.99), in paperback ($16.99 at Amazon), or at a variety of independent bookstores. 

I hope you'll join in and Read With Us this summer!

So excited! I marked it as to read when Carole talked of it.'s available at my library! Winning! :-) Thanks Kym, Carole and Bonny!


My mother was nothing like this mother so it's been enlightening so far (and the descriptions of food are wonderful)! I'm thinking this will be very discussable.


Just FYI this is also available as a NOOK book at Barnes and Noble for $12.99.


FYI: The paperback on Amazon won't be released until early July, but the hardcover is only a few dollars more. ORDERED!

I'm looking forward to it! Memoir is probably my favorite genre. It'll be interesting... I'm pretty sure I'll see a bit of my mother in this story, and possibly myself, too.


Love memoirs! Just got this on Overdrive from my local library!!


Looks like it's available from my library with no wait, so I'll be borrowing it as soon as I finish my current book!


I pick a copy up from the library tomorrow! I'm looking forward to something different and fun.
