July Summer Reading Update

Right now I’m reading Clash of Kings (Game of Thrones Book 2) by George R.R. Martin. It will take a long time, very dense, but I am loving it!

I took a break from adult to read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows again before the movie. I never tire of reading HP.

Bossypants by Tina Fey was probably my favorite read of the summer. I love how her mind works. It is insightful and hilarious!

I returned High School Confidential and Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. They sounded great, but I could not get into either one.

I am a huge fan of Alice Hoffman and her newest novel, The Red Garden, did not dissappoint. She followed decades of families from the start of a small town to the present time. The characters are intertwined and very interesting. The book has just a touch of magical realism that makes Hoffman so wonderful.

I also picked up Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal. Like many woman my age, we loved the Sweet Valley High series as tweens. This is ten years later and the twins are estranged. It is strange that they only aged ten years but they tweet and facebook. But ten years later shouldr really be the mid-1990s. That felt a little weird. Also the twins are now bitter and angry. If you hated Jessica, you will really hate her now!
