What Are You Reading This Summer?
So giddy when I have a nice list for Summer reading. What are you reading this summer? Here are a few suggestions. We would love to hear your recommendations too!
Actually listening to this one on audio on my ibooks account. Just getting into it and really figuring out all the characters. It was a slow go in the beginning but starting to really enjoy it.
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
An addictive new novel of psychological suspense from the author of #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train.
“Hawkins is at the forefront of a group of female authors – think Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott – who have reinvigorated the literary suspense novel by tapping a rich vein of psychological menace and social unease… there’s a certain solace to a dark escape, in the promise of submerged truths coming to light.” –Vogue
A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return.
With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.
Love participating in the SheReadsTruth study program. I subscribe so I always have the next study waiting and ready. This summer we are working on a six week study of the book of Romans. Check out SheReadsTruth.com and HeReadsTruth.com. This is the best way to stay in God's word each and every day. Don't panic it is a short scripture read daily with room for reflection and notes. Not a lengthy daily homework assignment like Beth Moore studies although I love those too.
Women in the Word of God every day.
She Reads Truth started as a small group of strangers on the internet who wanted to be more intentional about reading God’s Word. What began as a casual conversation is now an entire community of women all over the world in pursuit of Jesus.
God’s Word is a gift, and reading it is a privilege. She Reads Truth cheers on ministries whose mission is to reach the unreached with their very first Bibles. Our mission is to invite the already-reached to reach for their Bibles—every day.
It is our joy to open the living and active Word of God with you daily, to find the gospel of Jesus Christ on every page.
Headed to the library to check this one out. It has been a long time since I have read a John Grisham. His books are such easy reads which make them perfect for a rainy afternoon at the lake. I'll let you know if this one holds up to his past works.
A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.
But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it.
