A Few of Our Favorite Things: Summer Reading

Posted August 6, 2019 by Brightly creative.

Team Brightly took a break from traveling this month to get back in the office and plan our second half of the year’s events. That left time to catch up on our summer reading!

Here is a list of the books we can’t put down.

Humboldt’s Gift, Saul Bellow

Keith says, “One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to read more, and so far I’ve stuck to it! I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for about 15 years but never actually picked it up…until now. It was worth the wait and one of the best books I’ve read.”

All the World, Liz Garton Scanlon

Jonathan says, “I read this to my sons frequently and now one of them can read it back to me. It has my favorite quote from a childrens’ book. ‘Everything you hear, smell, see, all the world is everything. Everything is you and me. Hope and peace and love and trust, all the world is all of us.'”

Bad Moon Rising, Ed Morrison with Mindy Morrison

Alison says, “This book hits home because it’s based on a double homicide in my hometown of Mascoutah, Illinois. Author Ed Morrison’s brother, Michael, and his girlfriend, Debra Means, never made it home from their high school prom on May 3, 1969. Two days later, their bodies were discovered near an abandoned strip mine on the outskirts of town. Without going into the gruesome details that still haunts many members of our small southern farm town, I will warn you that once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down.”
