Jon David is out of school, so Summer is officially here at my house. I have always been an avid reader, but I find that I read a bit more during the Summer. I usually keep a book or my e-reader on hand for the pool, the park bench, or vacations (I’m one of those people who CAN read in the car, thankfully…a few years ago I read the entire Pretty Little Liars series on the way to California), so I fly through books way more quickly than I do once school starts.
I have a few books on my list for June, and I thought it might be fun to read them together. I will share my reviews as I read them and I’d love for you to leave your own comments if you read along!!
On the list for this month:
I’ve never read anything by Gillian Flynn, but Gone Girl was recommended in my Entertainment Weekly a few weeks ago. I looked it up on Amazon and the reviews are really really good!! This book is a thriller about a wife who goes missing and her husband is suspected of her murder. Lot’s of suspense and plot twists are promised. I’m a huge fan of murder mysteries, so I’m really excited about this one!!
I decided to add The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb to the list on the recommendation of my friend Kristen, who listened to the audiobook and loved it. Although the story is fiction, it is written as an autobiography based on an actual person. Again, the Amazon reviews are great, and I have high hopes!!
It’s just not Summer without a new book by Elin Hilderbrand. Her books are nothing life changing, but they are great beachy reads with substance. I’m a huge fan of hers and never hesitate to pick up one of her new books Summerland is about a graduation night that ends with one teenager dead and another in a coma. As their friends and family try to cope, there are questions about the events that transpired before the tragic car accident. This book will be released near the end of the month.
If you’re planning on reading along, I will be reading these in the order posted, starting this week. I’ll have a new list up in July. With that being said, I’d love recommendations if you have any!!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!!
