SUMMER 2022 READS AND REVIEWS

Unfortunately, I had less time this summer to sit and lose myself in a really good book but I had to make a choice. The weather was unusually sultry and sunny for Newfoundland and just in case you’re unfamiliar with the hellish winter weather on this rock, let’s just say we islanders are very adept at squeezing every drop of joy from the warmer months.

But divine providence being what it is, I wasn’t bookless for long. All three dropped into my reading world at exactly the right time. Two found me on social media via twitter: When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Chair By Ryan Rae Harbuck and Reflections By Raven Kamali. The third caught my eye during an incidental trip to Chapters: Scarborough By Catherine Hernandez. The fourth is an old favourite from my personal bookshelf: The Indigo Bunting by Vincent Sheean. They are all completely different books, two memoirs, a volume of poetry and a work of literary fiction.
