July Reads: Inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy

featured images carousel

This post is inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s podcast: What Should I Read Next? I have been listening to this podcast fervently over the past week (episodes 28 – 18), and have built a large list of must-read books that I can’t wait to dive into! Anne Bogel (Modern Mrs. Darcy) hosts this podcast and each week she interviews a reader who is looking for a new book to read. She asks them to summarize their favorite three books, one book they hate, and then comes up with three new possibilities they might enjoy. A few books have popped up that I have read previously and forgotten about, such as one I am currently reading: Sarah Addison Allen’s Garden Spells. I read this book two summers ago and love that it is full of magic, wistfulness, romance, and family secrets. If you are looking for a new podcast, or great book ideas, WSIRN is the one for you! Here is a list of books mentioned on the podcast that I am planning on reading in the month of July, and maybe spilling into August and September.

  1. Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler

  2. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I probably won’t get to all of these in July (most likely not!) but will save this list and keep adding more as I get to new episodes of the podcast. My plan is to start with The Forgetting Time, but after that who knows…

Happy Reading!
