July was a pretty busy month month-reading wise.
I’ve been keeping up with my summer bucket list by reading at least one book a week. And this month I definitely read some winners. Again, I don’t read any political, historical or non fiction books for the most part. I like either thrillers, chick lit or beach reads. So here’s a quick recap of what I read last month.
Eligible (Curtis Sittenfeld): So I was first a bit intimidated by the books (it’s 512 pages) but the chapters were super small which made reading a breeze. This book is advertised as the modern day version of Pride & Prejudice. Confession: never read it so literally have nothing to compare this too! Regardless, I thought this book was hysterical & loved this dysfunctional family.
Behind Closed Doors (B.A. Paris): This psychological thriller is totally a must read! It’s a bit old, but it’s about what seems to be the perfect marriage. Until things start to unravel & all I’m going to say is shit gets CRAZY! Read this book now!
The Last Time I Saw You (Liv Constantine): I was slightly disappointed in this book. I thought the plot twists were predictable. The author’s first book was excellent (read my review here) so I think I had high expectations for this book. It’s a decent, quick read with twists & turns but like I said you will see them coming a mile away.
Watching You (Lisa Jewell): Ok confession, I stopped reading this after a few chapters. It just didn’t hold my attention & I bummed because I was SOOO looking forward to reading this book. Maybe I’ll give it another go later this year.
The Friends We Keep (Jane Green): My favorite book that I read this month. This novel follows 3 friends from the time they’re in college to well into their adult lives. All the ups & downs of friendships are explored & secrets are revealed. I found this book to be extremely relatable & I definitely give it a five star rating!
