So in case you didn’t know, if I’m not cooking, gardening, cleaning my house, or playing momma – I’m reading. I’ve learned that when I find myself not actively reading a book, I get cranky. It’s my favorite way to escape and unwind. Are you with me?
I found myself stuck in a book for several weeks, could not get into it. I hate when that happens, because I always feel like I have to finish a book. The best thing I ever did is just let it go – because after a quick trip to the library, this book pile up above happened.
Now You See Her by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
I can’t put this one down and I am flying through this book. I really needed some easy reading to fall back into after the struggle with the last one. This book is typical James Patterson – some murder, some mystery, short chapters. Love it.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein – has been recommended by many. I can’t wait to read it. A story written through the eyes of a dog.
The Glass Series by Maria V. Snyder – This series was recommended to me by one of my reading buddies Katie. I picked up the 3rd book in the series, but I am planning to start with Storm Glass which is Book 1. I honestly do not understand what it is about, just like I really didn’t get Hunger Games when I read its back cover, so I’m going in kind of blind. And I don’t mind, it can be kind of fun to read a book that way.
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain – Liz recommended this book to me on my last book post. I’m holding on to it for a bit and starting it when my friend Allison finishes up her current read. It will be the first book selection of our unofficial Summer book club that will feature food and wine.
