book shopping

Each month I like to do a little book shopping...gather some new reads from y'all and share what I've had my nose in the past month.  So here goes my reads from the month.

Read: 

Broken Harbor by Tana French: This was like CSI: Dublin.  I loved it.  This was my first read from this author and for sure won't be my last.  She does an incredible job of making you feel like your standing smack dab in Ireland watching this mystery unfold.  Great pager turner!



Sharp Object by Jillian Flynn: I picked this up because I really enjoyed her latest book Gone Girl.  Good read, just not to the level of her latest.  The story is pretty dark and I just kind of felt pretty far fetched.  That's just my opinion and it's hard to compare against Gone Girl.  I have heard really good things of her 2nd book "Dark Places" and would like to give that one a read do.  Did I dream up I read this or is it true that Gone Girl is being made into a movie already?

Reading:




Divergent by Veronica Roth:  This is the first book of a trilogy, which I've heard if you liked the Hunger Games you need to read this.  So I'm giving it a go.  This genre usually isn't my cup of tea so we shall see.  I really just picked this up last night and am hardly a few chapters in.  So far so good.  I'll let you know if I pick up #2.

To Read:

I'm hoping I enjoy the Divergent series and end up reading the rest.  I also really want to read Where We Belong by Emily Giffin which has been on my list this summer.  What about y'all any must reads you couldn't put down?

My daughter is an elementary teacher, but plans to teach middle school in the next few years... so we're big into reading books and stocking a library worthy of young teens...

That being said I take the occasional break and ready an adult fiction and finished Elin Hilderbrand Barefoot today... so now onto the "to read" stack.. Divergent is on top! My daughter is a huge fan and loved it but we've read the Hunger Games and the Uglies series (that's a good one too if you haven't read them)... I'll let you know what I think!
