Nightstand: Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O’Farrell. This book is great, but it gives me weird dreams so I actually can’t read it right before bed.
Coffee table: The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi. An elementary school favorite of mine! I found a copy in my apartment building’s lending library and I’m really enjoying rereading it.
On the metro: The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey. This book is much more scifi than I normally do, but it’s very well done. It also gives me WAY WORSE dreams than anything else I’m currently reading. I have to stop reading it at like 4 pm, or else it’s nightmare city. (Why am I so susceptible to horrifyingly vivid dreams?)
Audiobook: Nothing at the moment.
One of my fellow Book Riot contributors did a post rounding up the best bookish moments of Boy Meets World.
Here is an amaaaazing photo of Queen Elizabeth at Royal Ascot, and a great post about the history of the gorgeous brooch she’s wearing.
J.K. Rowling had some fun on twitter and it was magnificent.
The Lightweight’s Guide to Drinking at Summer Weddings. Because I’m 5′ 2″.
This post on Adios Barbie made me want to try zumba ASAP.
StyleBakery just did a fab roundup of abalone jewelry, which I adore for summer.
This is a very cool post: Odds In Our Favor: Race in The Hunger Games.
Kesha opened up about her eating disorder recovery in Teen Vogue, cementing her place in my list of celebrities I genuinely respect as well as adore. Eating disorders are real and horrible, and for a celebrity to talk honestly about hers in a publication aimed at teen girls is an incredible move towards awareness.
Check out some extraordinary pieces in this roundup of recent auction record-breakers.
