I grew up reading…alot. I have just always loved reading. One of my favorite spots in my house growing up was a window seat where I would sit and read for hours..or an outdoor swing by the pond where I’d sit and read and journal. I read every single Nancy Drew, Babysitter’s club and a lot of Anne of Green Gables. I’ve just grown up reading, and getting lost in a book is my absolute favorite. One of the perks of traveling alot in the summer is getting to read in the car. Here are a few books I’ve read in the past month.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book when I first started reading it, but it turned out to be a great Mother Daughter story. I also loved listening to Delilah growing up and the mom has a radio show and it seemed like her former show was more like Delilah’s show. I love that it has G.G.’s playlist at the end + suggestions for other Mother Daughter books to read.
I read this in a day..on Father’s Day. We drove to Greensboro and back and I finished this trip on 540 on the way back. It was such a great easy beach kind of read about a couple who kept secrets from each other and you get to read the story also from their best friends’ point of view. You kind of bounce back and forth between a few years and a few different people’s stories.
This is an amazing book, especially for any Jane Austen lover. It’s a really gripping story about time travel and changing history, but it also talks a lot about details of Jane Austen’s life that I didn’t know about. (And now I want to read more about her life so if you have any suggestions for any other great reads about Jane Austen, let me know) This was one of those that I picked up, like, will I really like this? And I loved it!
I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and I wanted to read something about the history of New York. After reading this, I am still fascinated by the story of New York, so any other books you’ve read, I love to hear them! This starts with the Dutch, goes through the revolutionary + civil wars, stock market crash, and the twin towers. It was beautifully written and kept my attention the whole way. I wish he had more books about American cities but I absolutely want to read his book about Paris .Some of the things I learned about New York that I didn’t know – Wall Street was named after the Wall the Dutch built around the city at that spot. I also learned so much about Trinity church and other places I’d love to see in New York. (Another great book I read about New York last fall was A Fall of Marigolds.
Another really great summer read, and I loved Arthur’s character instantly. This was one that I couldn’t put down. It’s a great story about two people who are looking for the Holy Grail and the adventures they have + what they discover. This is not historical fiction but someone who is a history lover would love this book.
