In no particular order, I present my recent reads in the "new release" category ...
One True Loves is the third Taylor Jenkins Reid book I've read. I've enjoyed them all. I like how she explores relationships, usually with a view toward the post-happily ever after and/or the road not taken. My friend and I have decided that Jenkins Reid has proven herself to a be a reliable author for a solid, satisfying read. Recommended for fans of Emily Giffin or Jennifer Weiner.
I'm obsessed with the cover of Emma Straub's Modern Lovers and with the adorable postcard that was provided with my Book of the Month Club copy of this book. I can't say I was as obsessed with the novel, but I enjoyed it ... eventually. It was a slow start for me, but I liked seeing the novel's "modern lovers" and their various moments of crisis, introspection, and connection. I gave it 3.5 stars on Goodreads.
I've read other books, but limited this post to the new releases that I had remembered to photograph. Read anything new (or old) this summer? Please share.
