July Reads

July was a crazy month for me, so I distracted myself with novels. I read five books this month, and you probably know how they will all end.

The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez. A widow saves a dog. The dog is owned by a famous musician. Bada bing, bada boom, they love each other. This author really wants to write a good book, but just can’t get there. I give this book one out of five stars.

The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane. An eighteen year old woman is the lone survivor of a plane crash. She is left with amnesia. She runs away from the hospital to find herself, but ends up finding so much more. Predictable, but not bad. I give this book two out of five stars.

Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center. You just can’t go wrong with a Katherine Center book. In this novel a woman finds herself on a hiking trip. I was cheering for the characters and loved seeing them develop. I give this book three out of five stars.

Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane. Georgina is fired from her horrible waitressing job. She gets a job at a pub. The pub is owned by her high school love. Guess what happens. This is a fun read, with the exception of a sexual assault. I give this book two out of five stars.

Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson. This book is a fun story about trying to save a yarn shop. I really liked this book, but it ended abruptly. It needs an epilogue or a few more chapters to finish it off. I give the book two out of five stars.

Are you reading anything good?

  1. Now I want to read The Upside of Falling Down; that sounds intriguing! I just finished The Vanishing Half yesterday and the day before that With or Without You, and both were super good. And I’m looking forward to reading the new Katherine Center book soon!

  2. My newest read is called Until the End of Time by Brian Greene, professor at Columbia University in NYC. It’s a heavy read about how Entropy works on the molecular level within the universe and how it will most likely play out. It’s almost like a college course but very engaging and it’s the stuff I love. I’m so sorry I found out I love particle physics so late in life. But I find good books on it here and there.
