Happy Monday to all of you, hope you all had a wonderful week of reading. Personally, I was able to get some good reading done. I am trying to get as much in before I head to New York to spend some quality time with my family. It was a pretty solid week, with some really good books read.
Here is a a recap of everything that I completed reading this week.
Is There Still Sex in the City? – This is Candace Bushnell’s account of her life after getting divorced in her fifties. This was a fun read, and I saw a lot of how Bushnell was able to write Sex in the City. She definitely surrounds herself with a similar group of friends. Releases August, 6, 2019
The Idea of You – This was the most surprising book that I read. The premise sounds pretty dumb in my opinion only, but wow this story is so good. Older woman, much younger man who happens to be a huge pop star, what is there not to love. This is a perfect book for a hot summer day.
All the Water in the World – This was another Galley that I received. Beautiful story told from multiple POV’s a mother and a daughter. This is definitely tissue box worthy, but very much worth the read. Raney did a wonderful job telling this story. Releases August, 6, 2019
84, Charing Cross Road – This was a perfect cleanser. Short and sweet and a must for every book lover.
Searching for Sylvie Lee – Great literary mystery, in the same vane as Everything I Never Told You. Multiple POV’s and timelines, will keep you engaged the entire story.
Time After Time – This one I was nervous going into, but had me from the first paragraph. If you loved The Time Traveler’s Wife and Outlander, you will not want to miss the beautiful story. Joe and Nora are going to stay with me for a very long time.
The Dearly Beloved – This is a Galley that I received. This book mixes literary fiction, and faith. Well I would not think that that book would be in my wheelhouse, I am savoring this so far. Releases August, 13, 2019.
Park Avenue Summer – I started this Historical Fiction novel late yesterday and was devouring this. This story tells the story of Helen Gurley Brown the first female editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, from the perspective of the fictionalized Alice, a girl starting out who becomes her assistant.
The Last House Guest – I swore I would never read another book by Miranda again. I have not been a fan with her first few books. However, I find that Reese Witherspoon’s books have been a hit for me, so I gave in and am listening to this on Audio. I am not sure how this will go, but will give an update when I am done.
Please tell me what you are reading now, I love hearing about new stories and what is intriguing you.
I hope you all have another great week of reading.
