June 2022 Wrap Up


Summer is in full swing, and frankly it doesn't feel like it. The weather in the PNW has been the strangest I've seen since that one summer as a kid when it rained over 200 days straight. We are currently looking at a brisk 72 degree week. Although its mild, I've been looking forward the heat of summer. I'm chilly through to my core.

June was a productive reading month with some amazing reads. Managed to fill my time with 13 books. Lets get to the recap.

Dark Disciple

(Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)

Based on unproduced scripts from the blockbuster TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars!

The Kite Runner

The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption, and it is also about the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

The first Afghan novel to be written in English, The Kite Runner tells a sweeping story of family, love, and friendship against a backdrop of history that has not been told in fiction before, bringing to mind the large canvases of the Russian writers of the nineteenth century. But just as it is old-fashioned in its narration, it is contemporary in its subject—the devastating history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years. As emotionally gripping as it is tender, The Kite Runner is an unusual and powerful debut.

The Things We Cannot Say

In 1942, Europe remains in the relentless grip of war. Just beyond the tents of the Russian refugee camp she calls home, a young woman speaks her wedding vows. It’s a decision that will alter her destiny…and it’s a lie that will remain buried until the next century.
