Hi everyone! I am giving my final wrap up of my summer reading challenge today- woot woot! Fall starts next week, everyone is back to school, and I have no more trips to the beach planned, so I thought this was the time to do it!
I would love to hear how your summer reading went!
Before I get to the wrap up, here is what I read this month. (You can click on the picture of the book to be taken to the Amazon page!)
-Everyone Brave is Forgiven – Chris Cleave
Another WWII novel, I would put this one 2nd behind The Nightingale and in front of All the Light We Cannot See (these seem to be the three WWII novels everyone is reading lately!). I like the story telling and the perspective, but some parts were a little far fetched!
-Career of Evil- Robert Galbraith
This is the 3rd installment of Robert Galbraith’s (aka JK Rowling) series featuring a detective and his assistant. Robin, the assistant / partner, was sent a human leg and they are trying to figure out which person from Strike’s, the detective, past could have done it. It got a little convoluted in places and I didn’t like the ending… but that just makes me want to read the next one!
I just started Big Little Lies- and my library books are due tomorrow- so hopefully I can renew or push through!
Ok here was my summer reading challenge, and what I read!
Some of these I did more than one of- whoop whoop! And 1 I failed…
A book published in 2016:
A New York Times Best Seller:
The Little Paris Bookshop, What Alice Forgot
A Memoir: The Hiding Place
An Oprah’s Book Club Book:
Fail. I think all of these books were just kind of heavy… and long… and the ones I had already read sounded the best. Oops. I am putting The Underground Railroad (her newest selection I believe!)on my TBR list!
A Book Set in the Summer: The Rumor, The Matchmaker
I would call that pretty successful! Only one category I failed in and multiple categories with multiple books- woot! My goal for the year is 25 books- next month I will update you with my progress and my favorites so far!
Have you read any of these? Any books I should put on my TBR list?
