Lately, I’ve been lacking the energy for pulling together full dinners, instead ending up consuming  a series of small snacks in the evenings.

In a future plagued by environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate, Gilead is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. In an attempt to repopulate a devastated world, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude.

I received Emily Henry’s A Million Junes as part of my June Book of the Month Club shipment, and toted it with me throughout my  travels to Philadelphia and Boston last week. I was beginning to regret further weighing down my tote bag with a tome that I had yet to glance at when I finally cracked it open while I was waiting for my flight home on Saturday night. I powered through the entire captivating novel before I even landed back in Florida. It’s a beautiful story about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations.
