In Three Words…
I’ve gotten a good amount of reading in so far this summer. Reading on our trip to Colorado, when my older son was COMPLETELY preoccupied with geo-caching and my younger son was COMPLETELY preoccupied with my sister-in-law’s cat, reading at the almost-daily, two hour water polo practices, reading at the pool, etc. Here’s my list so far:
CODE NAME VERITY Easily my favorite read in months (and I’ve read some great books!). It’s a WWII spy novel, but not at all in the way you’d expect. In three words, it was intense, heart-breaking, and uplifting.
THEY CAME TO BAGHDAD My Agatha Christie throw-back. Had a tough time getting into this one. In three words, it was clever, confusing, and surprising.
BEAUTIFUL CHAOS The third book in the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES series. In three words: Southern, dark, and desperate.
BEAUTIFUL DAYS The second book in the BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS series, about three gorgeous girls taking on New York City during Prohibition. In three words: glamourous, languorous, and dangerous.
Next up? Probably THE PROPHET by Amanda Stevens, the second in THE GRAVEYARD QUEEN series. My prediction in three words? Creepy, shocking, and spine-chilling. I’ll have to be careful reading this one after dark…
On the horizon? JOY FOR BEGINNERS by Erica Bauermeister. I loved THE SCHOOL OF ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS! And I love the premise of this one: six friends make a pact–each will accomplish something that scares them within a year .
What are you reading? And what’s on your list?
