I thought I would get a lot of summer reading done this summer. Ha! Then life happened and I was lucky to have crammed in one book over my holidays. One day while downtown, I picked up a copy of Margaret Atwood’s “Alias Grace” and set about reading it on my break.
I devoured it. Margaret Atwood is a literary genius and I have long been a fan of hers. When I was 16 I read “The Handmaid’s Tale” and it blew my mind wide open and I have since read most of her books. “Alias Grace” was phenomenal. You should read it. And all of Atwood’s other works, too.
With the summer days dwindling, I have recently started to read John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden” and it is swallowing me whole (in a good way). What a story! What a villain! Oh, the humanity!
Did you read anything wonderful this summer?
