Just came across this “Show Us Your Books” link up and I thought it would be the perfect way to get back into blogging!! I made a goal for 2019 to read more books, I’ve recently been turned on to GOODREADS...combine that with the library by my house, I am hooked!
My goal this year is not just to read more books, but to branch out and try new authors and subjects too! I tend to stick to authors I know and love...but it’s been getting kind of boring!
My JUNE Reads:
So, June is really when I decided to get serious about reading more...nothing like waiting 6 months to work on your 2019 goals, right? But I told the kids since school is out they need to read more, and figured I should be lead by example! My 2 favorite books from June are (which also just happen to be 2 of the first books I started tracking in goodreads)
-My favorite of the 2 was definitely The Perfect Mother! I did have a hard time getting into it at first, but I think it was more about not having the time to really get into, because once I did, I really enjoyed it!
I enjoyed each characters story and the way the chapters were written. This book did keep me in suspense and although at one point I thought I knew who might have taken the baby (and would have been right!) The author didn’t make it obvious and I was in suspense waiting to see who it was/how it ended!
I will be adding more books from this author on my “to-read” list!
Overall I thought The Spark Of Light was a good book. After reading the insert I knew it could be hit or miss wether I would like it, it would all depend on how it was written.
I enjoyed that she included both sides of the abortion debate within her characters (to an extent, it did feel a little more one sided though), and I actually really enjoyed all the characters different stories. Hard to pick a favorite character, but if I had to, I think it would be Dr. Louie...(thought it was cool to find out in the acknowledgements (he was kind of based off a real person too!)
I was not a fan of the reverse story line at first, but now that I am done with it, I don’t think the story would have been as good told any other way, it was interesting to hear how all the people ended up at the center that day after you kind of got to know them, and even how some of them were ‘connected.’
This was definitely not my favorite book of hers to read, but I did enjoy it!
Feel free to find me on Goodreads!
