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.
Absolutely and perfectly fine! And I can’t wait to read the book. XOXO
Can’t wait! I put it as want to read when you reviewed it. Looks like perfect summer reading to me! Thanks Carole!
I’m looking forward to this one and managed to get it on Overdrive yesterday!!
Is it even a party if you haven’t arrived yet?! It is fine and a compelling book also.

Looks like a good summer book choice! And with two months to finish I should be good.
This looks like the perfect summer book!

I’m in! Downloaded it yesterday.
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.
It’s a party now that you’ve joined in! I’m looking forward to reading it.
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!

I may be able to join in on this one.
