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!
