It seems that every summer I have these grand plans of reading tons of books...and that really usually only happens while we're on our beach vacation. In fact, I finished five books within five days, ha! And in the month we've been home, I've only read about five pages of a book (but I'm working on changing that!)
I highly recommend all of the books I read on vacation...they're all different genres, so there's something for everybody! My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space and Does This Beach Make Me Look Fat? are both written by the mother-daughter pair of Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella. The books are compilations of their essays that appear in the Inquirer, and they. are. hilarious. Seriously, I was laughing through both books!
The Girl On The Train, on the other hand, is more of a thriller. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll probably like this book! But be warned, you don't really understand it until the end. So don't get discouraged at the beginning when you don't really understand what's going on.
Reached is the third book in Ally Condie's Matched trilogy. If you liked Hunger Games or any other dystopian fiction books, you might like the Matched trilogy. They're quick reads, and you don't have to think too much, perfect for the beach!
The last book I read was The Astronaut Wives Club. The author, Lily Koppel was at BookCon, so we we were able to meet her and pick up a signed copy of the book. It had been on my book shelf since then, in the beginning of May. Once the TV series came on, and I started watching it, I knew I wanted to read the book before I watched any more episodes of the show. Overall, I liked the book...but now I'm curious as to how the show is going to go!
