Looks like I was able to do a 180 on my May reading slump during June and today I'm sharing what I read with y'all, Steph, and Jana! If you're looking for a new book to read, be sure to hop over to the link up for some great ideas from other bookworms like me!
I'm also linking up with Lindsay and her friends for Welcome Wednesday!
17th Suspect || I enjoyed this book which is in The Woman's Murder Club series by James Patterson. I love the camaraderie and friendships between the characters. In this book, Yuki has taken on a case that begs the question: Can a woman be tried for rape (of a man)? I thought this theme was interesting and I wanted to keep reading to find out the verdict. But be forewarned: there are explicit details. In the meantime, Lindsay Boxer is trying to find out who is shooting homeless people in downtown San Francisco. Four stars.
The Summer I Met Jack || LOVED this fictional depiction of Jack Kennedy's love affair with Alicia Corning Clark, which was before Jackie and before his run for the presidency. I'm a sucker for Camelot and have always been mesmerized by the story of Jack and Jackie. Alicia is from Poland and she escaped during WWII to the United States. As luck would have it, she ends up in Hyannisport and eventually makes her way to Hollywood. I was drawn to Alicia and enjoyed the romance between her and Jack. I fully believe if Joe Kennedy had not intervened, Alicia would certainly have been the First Lady.
Guess what! I'm planning to meet one of my favorite author's this weekend! I am SO PUMPED about it! I'll tell you all about it next month!
Happy reading, Bookworms!
