I just flew back from California and boy are my arms tired…
Sorry about that. Apparently, the red eye made my brain a little tired even if my arms are perfectly okay aside from avoiding contact with the man next to me who kept trying to make conversation at 3am. No thanks.
So, since my last post, I’ve had two round trip cross country flights and some beach days which means plenty of reading to share. Great timing to link up with Jana Says and Life According to Steph for Show us Your Books.
This time of year I love reading chick lit and my usual favorite beach read authors did not disappoint.
Jane Green’s books are always go-to beach reads for me and the two I recently read ranked highest for me this month. Tempting Fate and Summer Secrets should both be checked out. Jill Mansell is another author who seems to always write chick lit that appeals to me. Her book, The Unexpected Consequences of Love, is no exception.
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Rivald was a strange book (in my all-knowing opinion) but still a good read. Since Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters is one of my all-time favorite novels, I had high hopes for In the Unlikely Event. While it was a decent story, it had too many perspectives from different characters and I admit I got confused at times about the storylines. The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank is another one that tells a story from different perspectives although this book was less confusing.
Bottom line? Definitely read the first three. The second three are worth a look but you’re not missing anything if you skip them.
Do you tend to stick to certain types of books depending on the season?
