Happy Monday, hope you had a great week. For those who had kids who started back or you teachers that started back last week, it was a great start. NFL started this weekend and my Patriots got off to an amazing start. Besides reading that is one of my other favorite things to do/watch. But enough about that, let’s recap the reading week.
The Lager Queen of Minnesota – Such a fun book. This family saga was really a good one. Spends time on two sisters from young adult to old age and one of their granddaughters. Completely delightful.
The Art of Regret – This was a galley the publisher sent me. I personally did not have high expectations. This book was so great, very introspective, and deep, but the writing is lush and Fleming makes this story flow. Release date October 22, 2019
Betrayal in Time – So I have been a huge fan of this series. This is series about an FBI agent that travel’s back in time to The Victorian era. It is fun. Unfortunately this one was not quite as good. Don’t get me wrong I will read more in this series, just this one ended up being meh for me.
Surfside Sisters – Another Summer, Another Nancy Thayer novel. Thoroughly enjoyable. This story centers around two life long friends who happen to both want to be authors. It is not all fun, and there is heartbreak, but it still has a lightness to me that summer books should have.
Tell Me Everything – If you like The Secret History by Donna Tartt then you will love this book. Six college friends, a death, and an unexpected twist you will not see coming. Darker than The Secret History, but the slow burn is totally worth it.
The Most Fun We Ever Had – Best read of the week and will likely be a top 10. This book is so in my wheelhouse. Multi-generational family saga. Writing is gorgeous and Lombardo was great out perpetuating this story. Beware, it is 500+ pages.
Keeping Lucy – This was a total surprise. I picked this up late last night thinking I would read about 50 pages. I devoured this book in about 3 hrs. This historical fiction novel, depicts one of the most horrid situations I have of ever heard of. Greenwood did the best job she could do, to tell this horrific story. This is such an important book. Make sure you read the summary before diving in as this won‘ t be for everyone.
Well that wraps up my week. Not sure what I am reading next, but I will recap it for you next Monday.
Let me know what you are reading.
