Spring Bookshelf – What to Read This Season

Well, life must have been pretty busy these past two months, because my Books Read list is awfully short! I read so few books in March, that I combined April in with this list!

Sophie Kinsella's books are always hit-or-miss for me.  Fortunately, My Not So Perfect Life was a hit.  Definitely something entertaining that you should add to your summer reading list!

It takes place in London and that always makes me want to move {or at least visit London!}

Hey Harry, Hey Matilda is a fun story told through a series of emails between a set of twins. You may recall from my January Bookshelf post that Meg Cabot's book is a story completely written through emails, texts, and news articles.  That was an entertaining book.

This one?  It's good…not great.  Entertaining, but quite honestly, not worth rushing out to pick up!

The first Book of the Month title I read was Marlena by Julie Buntin.  To be honest, it was a little depressing.  The narrator, Cat, moves to a small town in Michigan at 15.  It tells a drawn out story about how she got mixed up with a troubled girl name Marlena.

I'll be honest…it just didn't make me want to pick it up and read. I finished it, but it took far too long! But, there's a book out there for every reader, so don't let me stop you from picking it up.  It was well-written for sure. I just didn't love the plot {which kinda important in a novel, right?}

Okay, so The Most Dangerous Place on Earth was the opposite of Marlena – I couldn't put it down! The story takes place in the fancier part of the Bay Area {definitely not where I live!}. The book starts with a group of kids in middle school, where a tragedy occurs.

Fast forward a few years, and it follows the same group of kids through the high-pressure high school years.

It's fantastic!

You know I love me some James P! One of his latest {he comes out with about 14 books a month!} is Never Never.  It's a mystery that happens in the Australian country. It was one of the few books of his that gave me the heebie-jeebies!

Definitely a good read for the upcoming summer break!

Of course I had to sneak in a Lauren Layne book this month! Blurred Lines is a delicious, guilty pleasure read.  The premise: can a guy and a girl just be friends? This is a super fun read that answers the age-old question!

Who knew I liked suspense novels? I can't get enough these days. Behind Closed Doors is excellent and you MUST add it to your TBR list! It's not scary-suspenseful. It's more of the “HOW can this happen to someone!” suspense!

The Good Girl has been on my Kindle wishlist for quite some time.  It was on flash sale during April, so I snagged it. Really good! If you like to read books {like Gone Girl} where you try to piece together things as you're reading along, you will enjoy this one!

It's told from the perspectives of the mother of the missing girl, the man who kidnapped her, and the detective on the case. It's awesome!

Hope that fills your reading queue for a bit!
