“Nothing gold can stay, Pony Boy” … and by that we mean, sadly, summer is coming to an end.

But that doesn’t mean we have to let go of all of the great books we’ve read this season.

This week on the MashReads Podcast, we look back on the summer, chatting about what we’ve been reading, what makes a good summer book, and what other movies, music, etc. we’ve absolutely been loving this season.

Things mentioned on this podcast:

  • Martha Tesema’s explainer about why Despacito is the song of the summer (and what makes it such an earworm).

  • You can find Martha’s photos of Lorde from GovBall here.

  • Martha’s been rereading Zadie Smith’s novel On Beauty.

  • Zines you should read: Cat In Press, Diaspora Drama, 1991.

  • MJ recently read The Great American Whatever and loved it. He’s also been doing a deep dive into queer YA literature.

  • Peter recommends Things You Lost In The Fire by Mariana Enriquez if you’re looking for a good summer read. “So much of that book is about sweating. So much of that book is about being muggy and humid and fanning yourself.”

  • Summer music recommendations: Kesha’s new album Rainbow, Cardi B., Gucci Mane’s song “Met Gala,” Tyler The Creator’s album Flower Boy, Jonwayne’s album Rap Album Two, Mount Eerie’s album A Crow Looked At Me, Bonnie “Prince,” Billy’s EP Untitled, and Papanosh’s album Chicken In A Bottle
