What I read in June


Distant Shores by Kristin Hannah: I love Kristin Hannah.  This one was just ok.  It was a good story about a marriage falling apart and a woman finding herself again. The family dynamics and relationships are good but the story was a little predictable.  Still a good book just not her best.  

Looking for Alaska by John Green: Borrowed this one from my sister and it was an interesting read.  Yet again it was another whoa is me teen novel where they feel different from everyone else and the world is a tragic place.  The story is about a young misfit boy who goes to a private school and makes friends with more misfits.  He meets a girl named Alaska and of course falls in love.  The story then takes a tragic turn and the characters are left to find themselves.  It is a sad coming of age, growing up story.  Don't expect a happy ending (but what would you expect form Mr. Green?)  

Save the Date by Mary Katherine Andrews: This is the second book by Mrs. Andrews I have read and I enjoyed it.  This is a cute, easy, summer read.  Definitely chicy lit and predictable.  It follows a young woman who has a floral business, mostly doing business for big southern weddings.  She meets a man, falls in love, drama ensues and she figures out what she wants.  If you like southern books check this one out.  It's cute and easy.  

What have you been reading lately?
