Reading Recap: Summer (June/July/Aug) 2019

Seven Magic Mountains: a strange and colorful art project in the middle of the dessert just outside of Las Vegas off I-15

Well, and so I know summer would absolutely KILL the reading vibe I had going the first half of the year. Dang, but isn't summer supposed to be about just kicking back and reading all the books? Maybe back in childhood days, but not now. Sigh.

Anyway, these are the books I  read since we last updated at the end of May:

Ban this Book by Alan Gratz: A fourth grader decides to take her school library's book banning situation into her own hands.

A Room with a View by E. M. Forster: Our heroine falls in love while vacationing in Italy, but she is total and complete denial. (This was an "almost" re-read.)

The Lady in the Coppergate Tower by Nancy Campbell Allen: A doctor and his assistant embark on a romantic and creepy adventure that leads to a faraway country and a coppergate tower.

Comeback: A Kpop Novel by Lyn Ashwood and Rachel Rose: A romance blossoms when a famous boy band idol and his make up artist remember what brought them together a few year's previous.

Best of this lot: The Lady in the Coppergate Tower... though I gave every one of these books an average three stars.

Plans for September:

  • finish the big epic fantasy that I have been working on all summer long
  • read the new Kasie West :)
  • read the book club book, One of Us is Lying

I don't even have to ask. I know you are all doing better than me regarding reading! Let me know what your favorite book of the summer was, and I'll add it to my list!

  1. I've been meaning to read the Allen series. It sounds fun, but only three stars? Hm. Maybe that's why I own all the books in the series and haven't started it yet. Yikes.

    Hmmm ... best book of the summer? I just finished THINGS YOU SAVE IN A FIRE by Katherine Center and really enjoyed it. It's upbeat and funny, but also poignant and heartfelt. A fun, easy read.
