It’s the first Tuesday of the month and that means Reese’s June 2021 book club pick is in!
It’s actually pretty fun to guess which book Reese will select for her book club. I thought she would pick The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris but that is Good Morning America’s selection (which you should keep an eye on their picks! They really do select some great ones). Let’s take a closer look at Reese’s selection.
Reese’s June 2021 Book Club Pick
Reese has picked Seven Days in June by Tia Williams! I’m SO excited for this one. I also selected it as a June 2021 book club pick. It sounds like a refreshing, romantic and honest summer read. I’m finishing Where the Grass is Green and the Girls Are Pretty by Lauren Weisberger (horrible title; pretty good book). And I will start Seven Days in June next. Here’s the synopsis:
Eva Mercy is a single mom and bestselling erotica writer who is feeling pressed from all sides. Shane Hall is a reclusive, enigmatic, award‑winning novelist, who, to everyone’s surprise, shows up in New York.
When Shane and Eva meet unexpectedly at a literary event, sparks fly, raising not only their buried traumas, but the eyebrows of the Black literati. What no one knows is that fifteen years earlier, teenage Eva and Shane spent one crazy, torrid week madly in love. While they may be pretending not to know each other, they can’t deny their chemistry—or the fact that they’ve been secretly writing to each other in their books through the years.
Over the next seven days, amidst a steamy Brooklyn summer, Eva and Shane reconnect—but Eva’s wary of the man who broke her heart, and wants him out of the city so her life can return to normal. Before Shane disappears though, she needs a few questions answered…
With its keen observations of creative life in America today, as well as the joys and complications of being a mother and a daughter, Seven Days in June is a hilarious, romantic, and sexy‑as‑hell story of two writers discovering their second chance at love.
I really enjoy books about writers!! The most recent one I read was Beach Read by Emily Henry, which I really enjoyed. I’m also pretty excited that Seven Days in June takes place in Brooklyn during the summer. There’s just something about reading books in the summer that take place during the same time. Check back soon for a review and book club questions.
