Happy Monday! After a long needed break, I’m back and ready to read!
To kick-start my reading, I started with a long-time unfinished favorite, Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I’d started reading her memoir when the movie was originally announced, but never quite made it to the end… until now! Her work is brazenly honest, never shying away from her stint with drugs or unstable childhood. Rather than harping on her misfortunes, Strayed grounds herself in forgiveness, testing her physical limits and building an emotional stamina while trekking the Pacific Crest Trail.
This week I’m reading The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston, following a modern jungle expedition in search for a lost city of gold. My favorite non-fiction read of 2016 was The Lost City of Z by David Grann (now in theaters!), so I know I’ll love this one too. Archaeology, science, mystery, adventure… and a deadly jungle, it doesn’t get much better than that!
