Nightstand: Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh. This is a review copy of a YA fantasy novel that comes out in a few weeks. It’s pretty good. Stand by for a review.
Coffee table: The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud. I heard Messud speak at the National Book Festival over the weekend, which I visited with some of my Book Riot buddies and she was so awesome that I bought her book immediately afterwards (and then waited in line to get her to sign it).
On the metro: No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean. My run of romance novels continues! Sarah MacLean is amazing. I’m super excited for the next book in this series to come out next month. I’m dying to know more about Chase.
Audiobook: Nothing at the moment.
I’m dying over this incredibly gorgeous wedding.
