I was slacking on my reading this winter, but it’s summer and I am back in full force!! Here is what I read in June 2019:
~Drawing Home by Jamie Brenner (Library): Loved this. I felt like the characters were well-developed and while it was slightly (okay more than slightly) unrealistic, I didn’t even care. Without giving too much away, I will say that everything was wrapped up in a neat bow by the end of this book which I am all about!
~Summer of ’69 by Elin Hildebrand (Book of the Month): This was everything I expected. It was a quick read and although it is set in 1969, I felt connected to the characters and story itself. My library had (and likely still has) a waiting list a mile long for this one, so I was thrilled to see it was a BOTM selection in June.
~The Summer Guests by Mary Alice Monroe (Library): I do not believe I have ever read anything by this author, but I loved this book so much that I want to go back and read all her other stuff. I felt like I knew the characters in the story and genuinely cared how everyone ended up weathering the storm. An awesome beach read.
~The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen(Library): Kind of obsessed with this book. I did not want it to end and to be honest, I want a sequel. I need to know what happens to Emma and Roo!!!
~The Friends We Keep by Jane Green (Library): I have always loved Jane Green and her books, but this was not one of my favorites of hers. I did enjoy it, but it was not her best. There were a lot of twists in here, but I was not connected enough to care which direction they went.
~One Day in December by Josie Silver (Library): I actually checked this out from the library this winter, never read and then decided to try again. I am so glad I did. I am not sure if I believe in love at first sight for myself, but I for sure believed in it for these two!
~When You Read This by Mary Adkins (Library): This book gets great reviews on Amazon, but it was a miss for me. It’s not written chapters, rather it is a collection of texts, blogs, letters and emails. It has the potential to be incredible, but it never got there for me. The end was a super disappointing as well.
What did you read in June? Any recommendations for me the rest of the summer?
