Read With Us: The Summer Selection Announcement

That blog post I wrote yesterday? The one about how the days get away from me and I don’t find the time to sit down and write here? It was very honest and I’m glad I got it done. I just wish I had saved it for today because yesterday I was supposed to announce the title of the summer selection for Read With Us.


So, I’m a day late and Bonny and Kym have both already done a great job promoting the book, but I’m going to do my part anyway, even if it is anticlimactic.

We are reading Wild Game by Adrienne Brodeur

It’s a memoir about the author’s mother’s affair with her stepfather’s best friend. I read it in early May and it’s full of drama and angst, complicated relationships, vivid descriptions of food, and lovely portrayals of Cape Cod. I enjoyed it greatly, partly because I saw a lot of my mother in Malabar, partly because the setting is so familiar to me, and partly because it’s light and entertaining. I thought that made it a perfect book for us to read together and I’m glad Kym and Bonny agreed. I hope you will, too.

You’ve got June and July to read it, which should give you plenty of time, and we’ll be holding our discussion in August. I think once you start this one you’ll have a hard time putting it down! Hopefully you can find a copy at your public library as many are offering curbside pick up now as well as digital versions through Libby or other resources.

I may be late to the party but since the party hasn’t really started yet I think it’s just fine.

  1. Can’t wait! I put it as want to read when you reviewed it. Looks like perfect summer reading to me! Thanks Carole!

  2. Looks like a good summer book choice! And with two months to finish I should be good.

  3. I signed up for Overdrive last night and put it on hold. Not sure why I never signed up before, it was much easier than I was imaging for some reason. Should be available early July I think.

  4. I ordered it on Wednesday, it arrived yesterday, I started reading it last night, and… let’s just say that if I didn’t have to work, I’d be finishing this book right about now. It’s a page-turner, all right!
