May reads

Monday, June 03, 2019

May was a busy month for me for things other than reading. I did manage to get a few books read though.

My first book of the month was a children's book that I've heard so much about but never read as a child. It was an enjoyable book anyway.

"Marcelo in the Real World" is a book about a boy with aspergers. "The Rosie Project" (was well as the second book to the series) "The Rosie Effect" is also a book about a character with aspergers. I googled books about aspergers when my youngest daughter was diagnosed with aspergers last year and these were some fiction books that came up so I thought I'd change up my typical reading selection and give them a try. Very enjoyable. Sometimes I didn't know whether to laugh or cry but all in all the books were very good.

"Next Girl to Die" was an excellent book. New author for me. I love detective mysteries and this one did not disappoint. Dea Poirier is definitely an author I will be looking for more book by.

And then the romance novel, "Texas Fierce.". I'm typically not a fan but as I may have stated in a previous blog, this was an author that hooked me to romance back in grammar school. I read mostly romances through high school and college and she was one of my favorite authors and I still cannot pass up one of her books.

    It's an older book, but if you haven't already read it, you might want to see if you can find a copy of Elizabeth Moon's "The Speed of Dark" - it give some fascinating glimpses into spectrum disorders.

    The Secret Garden is an old favorite. I've read it many times. Love your recommendations!

    I've never read any of these books, but my son had to read The Secret Garden last summer. From what I heard, it sounded good.

    I have had The Secret Garden on my list for a few years too. I guess I was so busy reading Nancy Drew mysteries that I missed some of the childhood classics! Enjoy your summer AND summer reading.
