Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter: An Italian innkeeper meets an American movie star which changes both of their lives from that moment on.
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers: Ismae finds herself at an assassin school and then is assigned to the court to protect the Princess.
Paris by Janelle McCullough: A beautifully photographed book about the different personalities of several Parisian neighborhoods.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: A guy visits his childhood home and has a flashback to a very strange incident that happened when he was seven.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith: A girl going to her dad's wedding in London meets a guy going to his dad's funeral in London and they connect and have deep thoughts about their parents and relationships.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: A girl is on the run from a corrupt society that wants to use her unique power to do very bad things.
Rick Steves' Pocket Paris and Pocket London: Can I count these as books read this month? At least I would like to give them a plug. AWESOME little books! They were perfect for us to haul around these two cities and use as a reference guide and walking tour guides and guides through the museums. All the info you need for anything in these cities is compiled and condensed into these cute little, easy to carry books. I loved them and they did their job perfectly. Highly recommended! We love Rick Steves at this house!
Favorite of the month: Definitely Beautiful Ruins.
Plans for July:
- continue with some ebooks that have built up on the Kindle and are begging to be read (see list here.)
- re-read Edenbrooke for book club
- maybe continue with Hood which I started last month
And that's about it! My goals for the rest of this month will be very very modest!
How's the reading this summer going for all of you?
