July Reads

Thursday, July 31, 2014

I'm such a bookworm. I can get lost in a book and look up to realize that the whole day has passed while I've had my nose buried. Or at least I could. I'm sort of relegated to reading during naptime and at night now, but I still love it. So I wanted to share my July reads with y'all in the event that anyone is looking for a good book and may come across this site. Also, I'm always on the hunt for new reads, so please share in the comment section if you have any book recommendations!
 I really enjoy every book that MKA puts out. She has such a sharp wit and her books are some of the few that can literally make me laugh out loud while I'm reading them. Without giving anything away, then ending to this one has some ambiguity, but I still loved it. It's reads a lot like a romantic comedy sort of book.
 I'm just finishing this one up, but the characters that Dorthea Benton Frank portrays in this book are so interesting. The point of view shifts in this book throughout amongst the different members in the family. Sometimes I don't care much for that type of writing, but she just does it so flawlessly. Frank is another like MKA that has such a dry humor in her writing that I really love and appreciate. Like I said, this one deals a lot with family dynamics, but it's so interesting how shifting the points of view in which the story is written gives the characters so much more depth and helps you to empathize with each of them. I definitely recommend this book. It's a great summer read!
I was about 1/4 of the way into this book before realizing that it was part of a trilogy (book three hasn't been released yet). Usually, I hate reading books out of sequence, but since I'd already started this one, I decided to go ahead and finish it. It follows the journey of three sisters in the middle of returning to their 'summer home' with their grandmother, who's character I love. I like this book because I think a lot of women will relate with one of the three sisters, if not aspects of all three and the journey's they are on.
 This is the next book on my summer reading list, the first book of the aforementioned trilogy. If you want to read them in order, unlike me ;) you can pick both of these up via the links provided. Happy reading!
