may update

Summer break has begun!!! I'm super excited to be able to read for pleasure without being distracted by homework.

Recently I read and loved Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad. This intricately woven novel of interlinked stories is engaging from the first sentence. I marveled at the way the author was able to pull off the transitions to new time and character points of view. Egan is completely deserving of the all the accolades and awards heaped upon her this past year. I'd love to revisit some of her earlier novels, particularly Look at Me, which I haven't yet read.
