Monday Musings: The Best Summer Reads, Part II
Last week, Fay shared her favorite summer 2022 reads. This week I am going to expand the list and add a few more.
As she mentioned, Malcolm Gladwell's David and Goliath was one of my favorites from my summer list. I enjoyed Gladwell's study of how we think about advantages and disadvantages. He examines the underdog and how disadvantages are viewed by the majority of people. He asks, can a disadvantage become an advantage?
I also recommend Chuck Klosterman's The Nineties. If you're a member of Generation X or a Xennial (young Xer/older Millennial micro-generation), you'll probably enjoy this book. It reviews many aspects of the 90s including grunge music, movies, politics (like the rise of Ross Perot), television, early aspects of the internet (and Y2K) and so many quirky and interesting facts about a decade that many of us haven't yet full reflected on. I experienced moments of laughter, nostalgia and admiration.
Another enjoyable (and steamy) read this summer was Amy Daws' Blindsided. It was a quick friends-to-lovers book that includes lots of banter, laughter and love. I've seen this book on several best romance lists and I can see why -- it has the all the components that make for a good contemporary romance.
What did you read this summer? We'd love to hear about your lists!
