The Latest Books

I've read some really great books this summer.  I continued the fun game of just grabbing a book and hoping for the best and found some great ones this summer.

This has been one of my favorites all year.  The beginning of the book sets up the suspense for the rest of the book and the twists and turns made it so good.  I finished it in a day and have been thinking about it for weeks.

Tight Rope - Amanda Quick

Apparently this is my second Amanda Quick story but I didn't know it when I grabbed it. This was another very cute "murder mystery". I got a bit confused with so many names but figured it out in the end. It was a quick and easy read.

Similar to Little Fires Everywhere, it was slow going and told a story about a family dynamic.  I didn't love it, but also didn't hate it.

I really should be making more summer time to read but I just haven't wanted to lately.  I've been spending my days at summer school and on the beach with the kids but maybe I'll add a few more books before I go back to work in 2 and a half weeks?
