Hello lovelies. Isn’t summer so wonderful? I love taking life a little slower, even though I’ve been in constant motion lately. One of my favorite things about summer is sitting back and escaping with a book. I have been known to read a book a day, everyday, throughout the summer. I love staying up into the wee hours of the night. Last night was no exception, I stayed up late quilting and reading. Then I was up at 8:00 to quilt and read.
I’ve had a few people request some of my book suggestions, and I would recommend any of the books above. That’s an image of the books I read while on vacation in Mexico. They’re all great summer reads. The Kinsellas’ are easy pool reads, while the Hilderbrands have a little more depth. Also, basically anything by Jodi Picoult falls under the “highly recommend” category. Like, go out and buy it now kinda category.
However. Let’s also talk about this category: “Mind Blown”
If you think you can handle it, go out right now and buy Gillian Flynn’s novels. She has written three, and you better believe I’m buying any more she releases in hard back. The day they come out. No questions.
Gone Girl. Sharp Objects. Dark Places.
Of the three, Sharp Objects was my least favorite, but that’s like saying book 6 in the Harry Potter series was my least favorite. They’re all still amazing. Like, Thanksgiving meal amazing. Dark Places will leave you thinking about it weeks later and Gone Girl will seriously blow your mind. You will make others read it, and please email me too. I would love nothing more than to say, “I KNOW, what was that?!”
What are you waiting for? Why have you read this far? Why are you not already in your car headed to Target, Barnes and Noble, or the library? I said: “RIGHT NOW”.
*Don’t worry, quilting will resume tomorrow. I’ve quilted one and almost finished a new quilt top.
