Summer Must Reads!

It's been awhile since I have had any book recommendations on the blog.
Let's be honest, it's been awhile since I have been doing much reading at all.

But with a baby that is relatively predicably napping during the day and a book club that has been on a roll of picking great books, I have actually enjoyed some of my recent reads immensely.

The first one is And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. There was debate about whether or not this book was her best work or not. We were split between this one and A Thousand Splendid Suns, but personally I think this one is my favorite of hers. It is a Must. Read. Period.

We also read Banished in book club, an it is about  a girl that gets kicked out of the Westboro Baptist Church. You know, that crazy church that literally pickets anything just to get attention (like the funerals of the little kids in Newtown, or soldiers funerals). It was very interesting and not like anything else I have ever read.

And then there is The Light Between Oceans. Here is the deal. It's a slow start, but it is WORTH the persistence to get through the first 100 pages. You will not regret it. The only thing you will regret is finishing the book without a box of kleenex by your side because I promise you, you will be UGLY crying by the end of it.

And last, but probably not the best, is the Divergent series. Here is the deal. This book series is not the best writing I have ever read. But let's all be real honest that neither is Twilight, The HUnger Games or 50 Shades of Gray, but all of those trilogies seem to hook lots of people. Consider this your next Hunger Games. And on another note, the main character's name is Beatrice. It was quite the surprise as this was the first book I picked up on maternity leave...

Coincidence? I think not. :)

Happy Reading!
