What We're Reading Now: THE REFUGEES by Viet Thanh Nguyen

What are you reading, book-lovers? This month, we’ve started more books we finished, but those we did finish include: The Refugees, a short story collection by Viet Thanh Nguyen; Ada Limón’s most recent poetry collection, The Carrying; and South and West, a slim nonfiction volume by Joan Didion that muses on moments decades past, in (as the title suggests) the American South and in California. A varied bunch!

What We're Reading Now: Conversations with Friends

Did this February seem particularly dreary everywhere, or just in rainy LA? There’s been so much rain on the West Coast that it’s felt a bit like Ireland—very green and very, very damp! Dublin, Ireland is also the setting of the only book we finished this month: Conversations With Friends by Sally Rooney.

It may not have kept up with our New Years reading resolution, but this fantastic novel was everything I want in a rainy-day read: with great dialogue and vivid images that make the reader feel not only that you’re in the story, but oh!—how much you’d like to step into the rooms with them.
