Welcome to another edition of Monday Potpourri, in which I muse about bookish topics. Click over to Should Be Reading to see what others are pondering.
Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
Today I’m going to muse about an upcoming release that I’ve been seeing on other bloggers’ shelves (which they’ve received as review books), a book from a favorite author.
Goodnight June, by Sarah Jio, is a book I can’t wait to get! It will be released on Tuesday, so I’ll be downloading it on Wednesday.
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Songs) is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the “great green room” might have come to be.
June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby’s estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children’s bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store’s papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown—and steps into the pages of American literature.
Another book I am eager to receive is Little Mercies, by Heather Gudenhauf, another favorite author. (Coming June 24).
