I’ve read a few FANTASTIC books that I happy to share with you.
The Orphans of Race Point: I ADORED this book. RUN to Amazon or your local bookstore and buy it immediately (The kindle version is on sale for just $1.99). I couldn’t wait to finish it so I could tell y’all about it. While reading The Orphans of Race Point, I was so consumed with the fascinating story. I could not stop thinking of the characters or what would happen next (so many fantastic twists). Without question, this will be on my top 10 books of the year, and likely will add to my top 10 fiction books of all time. (Read an interview with the author here.)
Whistling Past the Graveyard: I picked this book up in the airport to go to my publisher after realizing I hadn’t brought a single thing to read. I proceeded to read the whole thing in 48 hours. If you liked The Help or The Secret Life of Bees you’ll love this story. Set in the 60s south, the storytelling is captivating and fast-paced. I loved it. (Read an interview with the author here.)
Let’s All Be Brave: Living Life with Everything You Have: I’d be remiss to not mention my friend Annie Downs’ new book because I think it is one we all need. Though I am not quite finished with it, I can say that it is an utter-delight, written with Annie’s signature style of humor mixed with truth. Her words communicate her heart and the heart’s cry of so many women I know. A perfect read for your summer.
I’ve started using Good Reads to track the books I’m reading, find new books to read, etc. If you are on there too, let’s connect!
