6 ⬇ 1 from September
This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger – I got to listen to the author speak and hear about his writing career, which has been long and successful. I enjoyed the writing style of This Tender Land, and am interested in reading his previous novel, Ordinary Grace.
Dominicana by Angie Cruz – This was a NetGalley read and it was shocking and gritty and impossible to put down. Ana’s story was sad and unfortunately so true to the time period and the culture.
Still Me by Jojo Moyes – It was nice to revisit the same characters. The last 1/3 was so compelling and emotional. I was curious to see what would happen but it took a long time to get around to the Louisa I recognized from the first book.
City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert – Set in the 1940s, City of Girls is the story of Vivian, a college dropout. Vivian is sent to live with her aunt and help with her struggling theater. Once in New York, Vivian discovers an entirely different life than she was expecting.
Twice In a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren – Charming. Heartwarming. Sexy. The chemistry between Sam and Tate in the past and in the present was well done. This is a story of your first real love and the feelings of betrayal, broken hearts, tender memories, and regrets.
The Night Fire by Michael Connelly – A solid Ballard / Bosch book. I enjoy Renee and she and Harry have a good banter/trust going. This book also brings Mickey Haller into the story with Harry working a case with him. Even though there are a lot of separate storylines, MC manages to pull it all together and the last 50 pages – WOW!
