Sex With Shakespeare by Jillian Keenan — A memoir about a woman discovering her sexuality through Shakespeare? I don’t know how you get more in my wheelhouse than that.

Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay by Elena Ferrante, translated by Ann Goldstein — Three down, one to go (which I’m actually almost done with). This one was absolutely my favorite so far, which I’ve said about every book as I’ve read it. Lila and Elena’s relationship gets deeper and more fraught, and I continue to wish for Nino’s untimely demise. He is actually the worst.

The Givenness of Things by Marilynne Robinson — Picked up this collection of essays on a whim on the way to the park, thinking it would be a breezy read while my boys played on the swings. The first essay, “Humanism,” about neuroscience and ontology, didn’t really fit that bill, but I thought it was fascinating anyway. Might be a good “one essay a night before bed” book.
That’s it for me this week. Show me yours!
