I’ve followed author Chuck Wendig on social media for a while now, and I’m a faithful reader of his blog. I was intimidated by the 800-page length of his latest book, Wanderers, but given the overwhelmingly positive early reviews, I decided to give it a read. I am so glad I did!
On just about any list of Best Running Books, you’ll find Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami‘s What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. As a runner, reader, and writer, I was excited to dive into this memoir.
I just finished More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. I read the first 40 pages last night in bed, and finished the book this morning. I was only able to put it down long enough to throw the laundry into the dryer!
After seeing the touring company’s production of the musical Hamilton, I wanted to read Alexander Hamilton, the book on which Lin-Manuel Miranda based his smash hit. It’s a huge biography, but it reads almost like a novel.
While waiting for Chuck Wendig‘s Wanderers to be released, I noticed he had written a young adult novel called Atlanta Burns. It’s neither about Georgia’s largest city, nor about things burning.
