July Books

These past few weeks I have gotten the chance to do a good bit of reading, mainly one of the biggest reasons I have not been spending so much time here. 

So let me turn to the amazing bookshelf at Shelfair and see what all I read this month.

Product Details

For starters I just happen to love polar bears so this book kind of got picked up becuase of the cover (I know I know you can't judge a book by it's cover and this was kind of one of those) This book was different and I don't quite know if I liked it. Yet once I got into it I couldn’t put it down but it was almost like a guilty pleasure of watching someone else mess up their life.  Both the husband and wife in this book had a lot going on, and the wife was still trying to find herself if not maybe even going through a midlife meltdown of some sort. In the end I think the just proved you need to forgive and forget sometimes. I am not sure if I will read anymore books by her or not right now.

 Life's a Beach

 I liked this book way more than than the one above, it was just well cutter. This was a free book on kindle so I thought I would give it a try.  It was a really cute, quick summer read.  I would really like to give it a 4.5 but you can't do half points.  Anyways this book is about a woman in her 40's still trying to figure out life.  It may (or may not) make you take a step (a small one) back and think about some things if you are still trying to figure out your path in life.   I look forward to reading more of her books this summer.

June Bug (Murder-by-Month Mysteries, No. 2)

I don't know what to really say about this book other than it was a little no make that a lot different.  I felt like it took me forever to read this short little book.  Sadly I do not recommend this to any of my friends.

 The Diplomat's Wife

I saw this book on a few differnet blogs and was happy to see when our small little libarary had it in. This book was a rollercoaster and I cannot even begin to describe it without giving things away.  Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down because I couldn't wait to see what was going to  happen next. I look forward to reading more of her books.

Queen of Babble

I don't have much to say about this book.  When I first picked it up I had high hopes because I have heard good things about Meg Cabot; however I had a really hard time getting into this book because it started off just so strange to me and then got a little stranger but kind of cute and then well it ended up like every book should (ok well not all but you knew it was coming with this book) with a happy ever after.  I don't think I will read anymore of this particular series but I may look into her other stuff once I have caught up on my "to read" list.  Sadly I don’t really recommend it to anyone (some parts were almost painful to drag myself through and I love airhead lit for the most part) but I will let you know if I change my mind about her books. 

Currently I am reading

Poison: A Novel of the Renaissance

I am really looking forward to finishing this, not becuase it is not good but becuase thanks to a trip to the libaray today anI have a few more bookes to add to my reading list.  So far I find Poison to be pretty good, I have always like historical fiction and this one starting off strong.
