Day 12: Sunny book cover

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Not super sunny in a traditional way, but you can see the sun on the water and peeking through the clouds.

Day 10: Favorite author.

Can someone be your favorite author if so far you’ve only read five pages of one of her books?

“Firelit rooms lined with books—these are the places in which important things happen.”

Day 9: New book discovery

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’ve been hearing about this for a while and just discovered it at my new local bookstore.

Day 8: Most reread book

This one took me a while because I had to go to the library to snap a photo. According to goodreads I’ve only reread three books, and I’ve only read each of them twice. This is one of them: Anthropology of an American Girl by Hilary Thayer Hamann. I found it really absorbing and I can see myself reading it a third time. In childhood I reread books all the time but in adulthood I’m usually too worried about all the books I’ve never gotten around to to bother rereading things.
