Link Love #123

Y’all, consider it a small miracle that this post is up, because I am spending EVERY SINGLE SPARE MINUTE I HAVE tearing through Where the Crawdads Sing. (A live shot of me reading above, hah!) I’m kicking myself now for putting off reading it for so long since everyone loves it, but for some reason, I thought it’d be too poetic or too nature-y for my liking. My coworker passed along her hardcopy to me and I threw it in my bag to read on the Metro. Within a chapter or two, I was hooked, and I’ve spent every spare moment of the last two days reading it. I have 100 pages left, and part of me is so excited to curl up tonight and finish it, and part of me is sad it’s going to be over. (A full recap of all the books I read in July coming your way next week!)

This weekend, I am heading Durham, North Carolina (which, technically, is my hometown!) to celebrate my Grandma’s 90th birthday with my family! The past few years, I’ve really only made it to Durham once a year for Christmas, so it will be so nice to return in the summer. We’re throwing her a party on Saturday night—the theme is party like it’s 1929, only we’re not pretending it’s still prohibition—and I’m excited to celebrate and give a little toast in honor of one of the most impactful people in my life. (Spoiler alert, I still have yet to write said speech since I’ve been all in on Where the Crawdads Sing, but I always work best under pressure.)

I hope you all have the best weekend, and if you need a book to read, might I recommend Where the Crawdads Sing?! x

And here’s what’s been new on TOT lately:
