Annie’s Best of Summer

Richard Marx is sad because summer is ending.

Hold on to the nights.

Hold on to the memmmmorrries! 

It’s still officially summer until September 22, pumpkin spiced sundries be damned. I’ll have to close up my friendship bracelet supply/tackle box and reorganize the tights by thickness soon, but until then I can hold onto the memmmmmorrries!



Here are my best summer book memories:

Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella: This is the book that Field of Dreams is based on and it is dreamy and lyrical and wonderful and makes you want to visit Iowa.




Just Kids by Patti Smith: This has been on my to-read list for awhile now. It took a road trip and the desire to read about the passion of art for me to pick up Smith’s memoir of art and deep love and New York and I’m so glad I did.


Fall, for me, is a time to get a bit juicier and darker with my reading. Here are a few on my list for the upcoming months:


Unabrow: Misadventures of a Late Bloomer by Una LaMarche is my back to school read. Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, A Mystery and a Masquerade by Walter Kim and  Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff will take me through my late October dark creepy happenings stage.  The Brontes: Wild Genius on the Moors by Juliet Barker will either stave off or feed the growing madness that comes with impending winter.

I wish that I could giiiiiiiiiiiive you more, but that’s it.

Oh wait, this:
