Sadly, my summer has come to an end. When it came to reading it didn't feel very productive, but I'm okay with that since my summers tend to be busy and I don't spend a lot of time sitting around. We also had a very hot summer and it is hard to believe that it can be too hot to read, but yes I experienced quite a few days like that.
For September I have kept my reading on the light side. I am still in the progress of planning school which will lead into actually getting started and finding our groove for our new school year.
From July's Nightstand I read:
- The Question by Leigh A. Bortins - Good read. Definitely a book I'll have to read more than once.
- Now and Forever by Mary Connealy - Just because.
- Celia's House by D.E. Stevenson - Another enjoyable read by Stevenson.
- Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman - I picked this one up since I enjoyed Saving CeeCee Honeycutt so much. Unfortunately, I felt this story fell short and I didn't care for it very much.
- Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk by Tracy Groot - I found this story riveting. Groot does a great job of telling the story of Dunkirk with a cast of odd, yet charming characters. This book was hard to put down! Highly recommended!!
- Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma - Another World War II story that tells the story of a man who was shot by the Nazis and survived. Some of the events were based on a true story. Interesting read though I found it not as captivating as the above mentioned book.
- The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees - I honestly have mixed feelings about this story. I enjoyed (to a point) the historical information based on Alcott's true family. I found the fictional story disappointing. I suppose this means I'll need to find a good biography.
