It’s the last Monday of June and here is a list of books I read this month.
I liked this…but I haven’t read a book by Anna Quindlen that I haven’t liked.
I did want to make the main character, Rebecca, get a move on;
took her forever to figure things out.
This was very good. Some good twists and turns and surprises.
Big bad secrets hidden for years by the “upper crust” and an important family.
It is one of those books that I almost figured out but not quite.
Amy was raised by her crazy shoplifting grandmother
and sometimes by her small-time crook father.
She never knew her mother and is now determined to find out about her.
Susan Isaacs has a way with witty dialog but this time around it was a bit much.
I liked the book but it wasn’t a page turner.
I always like Alice Hoffman books and I was not disappointed with this one.
It’s a love story that was weird, sad, strange, yet uplifting.
The Museum is a side-show of human oddities in the early 1900′s.
The owner’s daughter is used and abused
but she learns about love watching the “oddities”.
She meets a photographer and experiences love for the first time.
Well worth reading.
You must read this…but it is dark.
I read it in one day. Could not put it down!
One morning, 25 years ago when Libby Day was seven,
her mother and sisters were murdered.
Her brother goes to prison for the murder partly because of her testimony.
Now she is questioning what she may or may not have seen that morning.
I never saw the end coming!
I had no idea what really happened until the last few pages of the book.
If you like mystery with weirdness read this but be warned it is ugly.
This was another very good book. It is volume four of the Clifton Chronicles.
I didn’t read the first three but this book does stand on its own.
This takes place in the 60′s and the Clifton-Barrington family is hard pressed
to keep from losing the ship building business that has been around for generations.
The characters are well drawn and I got to really liking the family
and really not liking their enemy.There is a fifth volume due out next year…
this fourth one was a cliff-hanger…I will have to read number five.
I may read the first three…or not.
On a completely different note…
this book was sent to me to review which I am going to do this week .
It is one woman’s story of reconciling belief and doubt in her search for God.
Right now I am reading I Can See Clearly Now by Dr.Wayne W. Dyer.
I am only about a quarter of the way through so the jury is still out.
