Summertime Reading

Summertime Reading

This is what I hope to read this summer. Some books are older, some kind of new, some haven’t come out yet. If I read any of these this summer I will be happy. Reading is such a challenge right now!

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The End of the Day by Bill Clegg

The Safe Place by Anna Downes

The Second Home by Christina Clancy

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

The Boy from the Woods by Harlan Coben

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

There are a few others I may toss in depending on mood but I am happy with this list. It’s a good mix of old and new.

What will you be reading this summer?

Books Reviewed in 2019

This is a list of the books I read in 2019. It was a slow reading year.  Something happened to me in September and my reading came to a crashing halt. The result is a very short list.

Each link takes you directly to my review of that book. Happy New Year!
