Good Reads...

Hopefully now that summer has arrived you will have time to pick up a couple of good reads....  Or if you are like me, you could care less what season it is because a day doesn't normally pass when I don't have my head in book!!!  LOL

I am in the process of reading "Room: A Novel" by Emma Donoghue. 

I have to say it is very interesting and has really kept my interest up!!!  The novel is told by a 5-year-old boy named Jack, who has spent his all life in a room (a fortified garden shed, actually) with his mommy, jailed by a man who kidnapped her 7 years before.

It totally wasn't what I expected and I truly can't wait to get to the end of the book, but at the same time I don't want it to end, if that makes sense.

I also just finished reading "Night Road" by Kristen Hannah.

This was a really really good book!!!  One of the better ones I have read in quite a while to be honest!! 

Night Road tells the story of Lexie Baill and the Farraday family. For Jude Farraday, her whole life has been dedicated to her family- specifically her two twins Zach and Mia. However, while Zach is the king of his grade, Mia has always failed to the wayside. Everything changes when Lexie moves to town during the twin's freshman year of high school, though. Scared yet brave, Lexie quickly finds herself part of the Farraday family- another daughter to Jude, a best friend to Mia, and possibly "something more" to Zach. As the years continue, the bond only grows strong...until one horrific accident. Faced with sudden and bone chilling tragedy, everything changes between them all, landing one in jail and the rest in emotional distress.

As I said before, it was really good and I stayed up late a few nights just to get a couple extra chapters in!  I was sad to get to the end - but was happy with the ending!!!

One of the next good read's on my list - one of my favorite authors has a book that will be released on the 14th of this month and I have already pre-ordered it to be sent to my Kindle on the release date. 

I have no doubt that it will be good - all her books always are!!!

So how about you - have you read anything new that you just loved?  What's on your to read list this summer?  I would love to hear!!

Until Next Time!

Thanks for sharing. I'm always looking for new authors. I also love Night Road. I think I'll try the other two you suggested. I just got done reading the Lincoln Lawyer. New author to me. It was good, I'll be going to pick up some of his other books. If you haven't read it yet and it's a lending book I could lend it to you.. :O) LOVE that Kindle!!!

Oh love how the house is shaping up, very pretty!!
Have a fabulous day..

Thanks for the book reviews. Love it! I wish I had more time to read, but my reading time is pretty consistent throughout the year. I only get it in on my commute to/from work. Have you read the Help? It is great!
