Thanks to Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy, I am doing a much better job than usual at keeping track of my books.
Here is the Twitterature version of my reads from the last month.
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. While on vacation I reached out to Facebook friends for book recommendations. I was looking for an easy read but not too easy and the kind of book that your family does not want you to read on vacation because you read instead play. This story of a single mom after the apparent suicide of her only child was a perfect suggestion. Thanks Amy!
The Art Forger by Barbara Shapiro. The Art Forger was another suggestion from my friend Amy and another perfect pick. Part love story, part art history lesson and part mystery. This one was hard to stop reading.
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. I had read that the Silent Wife was this summer’s Gone Girl. I agree but take note; I didn’t like Gone Girl.
The Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall. Blue Asylum was this month’s selection for my new library book club. There were parts of this book that were interesting but overall, I felt this story of a woman wrongly sent to an insane asylum by her husband during the Civil War was rushed and unbelievable.
