The Candy House by Jennifer Egan

Visit from the Goon Squad received much acclaim when it came out several years ago. Now Jennifer Egan is back with a companion novel, which you can read on its own or as a follow up to Goon Squad. BUT The Candy House received the royal treatment, audiobook wise, and is narrated by a full cast. Ah! Can’t wait!

Time Is a Mother by Ocean Vuong

I just finished listening to Ocean Vuong narrate his latest poetry collection on audio. Ugh, it’s so incredibly beautiful, and there’s nothing like listening to a poet narrate his work. Time Is a Mother was written after Vuong’s mother passed away, and it’s full of longing for the person he loved most.

And Here’s A Cat Picture!

Since I’m still out of town for work, my husband sent me this picture of Murray buddying up to him in my absence. I’ll admit I’m super jealous! I love to travel, but I hate missing my cats.

I know I’ve said this a bajillion times before, but cherish every moment with your pets! I miss this little dude so much! Can’t wait to see him tomorrow.

And that’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by. Be well, and have a wonderful weekend.

💙 Emily
