I've been trying to take advantage of the little time I have left before I go back to work. Reading is one of my guilty pleasures and I can't do it much during the school year. I have tried to read quite a bit this summer. I haven't gotten to as many books as I'd planned, but here are some of the books I've read:

On Mystic Lake - Kristin Hannah
I had read Firefly Lane sometime during the year last year and this was my second of her books. I really like her and this was a good book, although not as good as Firefly Lane.

Between Sisters - Kristin Hannah
I picked this one up at WalMart the other day, along with The Things We Do for Love. I read it in a day and a half, but I have not read the other one yet. I will start it today (and probably finish tomorrow)! I enjoyed it, as I have all of her books. She writes her characters so vividly.

Sizzling Sixteen - Janet Evanovich
Nothing to say...loved it as I have each of the previous fifteen novels. I love Stephanie Plum but hate that when I read about her, I eat like she and Lula do! NOT good...and makes me happy the books come out only once a year!

The Wednesday Letters - Jason F. Wright
This was a sweet novel; however, the ending was, to me, a bit on the preachy side. All of a sudden there was a whole lot of Jesus where there had been very little mention prior. It was weird and unexpected.

The Forgotten Garden - Kate Morton
I really enjoyed this novel. It was a mystery but not a "who done it" mystery; it was a "who am I" mystery. There were a lot of story lines, and at times, it felt like there were too many, but it does all come together nicely and not in a predictable way.

I know that cannot be all I've read this summer, but it is all I can come up with off the top of my head! I have a stack of books to go through, including the above mentioned The Things We Do for Love. I also have The Castaways and A Summer Affair, both by Elin Hilderbrand. Wish me luck getting through them all in the next 17 days!

  1. I purchased an e-book reader last year and it has been a life saver as well as a money saver. So far, all the books I have downloaded have been free off the internet.
