Julia’s August Recommendation(s)

Julia had two recommendations to share for the month of August. Both are posted because one is the audiobook version of a book that Blaise recommended back in march.  Check both of these out!

Audiobook version of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

“I have been laughing out loud–even while stuck in summer construction traffic–thanks to Mindy Kaling’s reading of her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). In a series of short and often hilarious personal essays, Kaling details her journey to becoming a “quadruple threat” as writer, director, producer, and actor on NBC’s The Office.”

And here is Julia’s 2nd Recommendation for August….

In The Woods by Tana French

“The first in Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series, this book was a thoroughly engrossing read for a lazy summer afternoon. In fact, I could not put it down and stayed up until the wee hours to finish it. A child’s murder in a neighborhood on the outskirts of Dublin revives the
memory of two children who went missing twenty years in the woods near the same neighborhood. French provides not only a great mystery, but also mesmerizing psychological portraits of her characters. Broken Harbor, the latest book in this series, was just released.
