After a short hiatus from my booktube reviews, I’m back with a new one: The Italian Teacher by Tom Rachman. As I mention in the recording, this is the July pick for my book club (register for the discussion here if you’re interested and live in Calgary!), and I really enjoyed it. Didn’t think I would, but this book really surprised me.

I also bring Smokey into the picture so you can all see how she is coping with the loss of her sister. We’re all doing fine, thank you for the really kind comments and well wishes everyone has sent. Oh, and my hair looks extra weird in this video, but when you have a newborn, things like ‘brushing your hair’ and ‘showering regularly’ fall by the wayside.
