Summertime reading is the best, right?! I remember as a child spending every possible moment during my summers with a book in my hand — always excited to go back to the library and check out more! Since I was preoccupied last month, this month’s “What I’m Reading” is an extended bonus version which includes my June and July reads so far. Travel helped me complete some of these, and I’m still looking for a perfectly light pool or beach read for my brief school break in August. Any suggestions? I’d love to hear what you’ve been reading lately and any summer book recommendations in the comments! I’m linking up, as always, with Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy, so make sure to visit her Quick Lit post for more of what bloggers are reading this summer!
Read this Month
The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict— I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, but I was hoping for something similar to The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin, a book that was intriguing but a learning experience too! And I think that’s exactly what The Other Einstein is. This book follows Mitza Maric, Einstein’s brilliant wife and female physicist who is thought to have contributed to some of his most incredible achievements. I enjoyed learning more about Mitza (an amazing woman!) and about Einstein himself — however, this book definitely reveals an arrogant, selfish nature that makes him extremely unlikeable (3/5).
