The End Of Everything by Megan Abbot – I found this creepy and not in a good way. I heard it described as being realistic about how teens think and act. I disagree.
The Trouble With Goats And Sheep by Joanna Cannon – Reminds me of my childhood summers and all the mischief I got into with my best friend.
Before The Fall by Noah Hawley – Such a good premise, mysterious plane crash, only two survivors. Then it takes every character and goes on and on about nothing. And the ending? What a disappointment.
The Book Of Unknown Americans – Should be required reading.
Just Mercy: A Story of Justice And Redemption by Bryan Stevenson – More of should be required reading.
Something New: Tales From A Makeshift Bride by Lucy Knisley – Getting married? Overwhelmed by it all? Then this graphic memoir is for you.
This Must Be The Place by Maggie O’Farrell – O’Farrell is one of my favorite author’s, but this one just didn’t do it for me.
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansar – I prefer the old fashion way of romance. You know, actually talking to people.
The Museum Of You by Carys Bray – A young girl tries to connect to her absent mother. Sounds sad doesn’t it? But it’s really not. There are sad parts, but then it can be laugh-out-loud funny. And you just feel good about things in the end.
The Warmth Of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson – Excellent telling of an ignored, but equally important part of American history.
Twelve Angry Men – Audio theatre. Can’t go wrong with this one.
Yaqui Delgado Wants To Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina – Good YA story about bullying.
Now onto some fall reading!
