What are you reading this spring?

One quarter of the year is in the books, so we thought it was a good time to check in.

What books did you enjoy most in the first three months of 2022? What are you looking forward to reading in the weeks ahead?

We’ll go first.

Donna really enjoyed Jo Ann Beard’s essay collection ‘The Boys of My Youth,’ which was recommended by her writing-class instructor. ‘Beard’s masterful descriptions made me feel like I was in the room with her as she told of her experiences,’ Donna says. Next on her reading list is ‘How Should a Person Be?’ by Sheila Heti.

I liked Fernanda Melchor’s new novel, ‘Paradais,’ and finally got around to reading ‘The Secret History,’ by Donna Tartt, which was terrific. (If you missed these reviews, look here.)

In the weeks ahead, I’m excited to read ‘Black Leopard, Red Wolf,’ by Marlon James, ‘A Tale For the Time Being,’ by Ruth Ozeki and ‘The Lathe of Heaven,’ by Ursula K. Le Guin.

What about you? Let’s discuss in the thread!
