I had a couple of light reading months in May and June (if you had told me a year ago that six books in two months was light I wouldn’t have believed you!). Even though I read a little less, I’m still really proud of how my reading goal of 52 books in 2020 is going – no matter what, I’m reading so much more than ever before.
So why did I read less the past couple months? Work, kids, life…and launching this blog! Life can get in the way sometimes and that’s ok.
Here’s what I read in May and June – there were a lot of 5/5s! As an Amazon Affiliate, I earn on qualifying purchases.
My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout (5/5) – I loved this quick but impactful read about the complexities of mother/daughter relationship and class. I think you either love Elizabeth Strout’s novels or you don’t. Since I loved the Olive books, I gave this a try and was so glad I did.
The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (3/5) – This light romance took me a while to get into. While it was fun, it just didn’t ever grab me.
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones (5/5) – This beautifully-written book looks at what happens in a marriage after the husband is wrongly convicted for a crime. So good we chose it for our June Paperbound book club pick.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren (4/5) – A good beach read for anyone who loves romantic comedies.
These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card (5/5) – A fascinating book that tells the story of one family’s secrets across generations.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (5/5) – One of my favorites I’ve read all year. This book about an actress’s life and marriages sucks you in from page one.
