Anna March’s Reading Mixtape #26: Fiction I Read and Loved This Summer

By

Not a one of these is a “beach read,” though I read many of them on the beach. Every one of these novels and short story collections transported me deeper into myself. Every one of these books excited me and made me hungry to live more, love more, think more, feel more, give more. What else could you want from a book than to make you want your own life more than you ever have?
