June: What I Read

Why yes, yes I am still on a Karin Slaughter kick. WHY DO YOU ASK?

Also, I am so so so into listening to Louise Penny books! I like to read them, but I love to have them read to me. 

This year, I have read 89 books to date, but none of them have blown me away... yet.

16. Talking to Strangers by Malcom Gladwell: WHAT THE HELL. This is awful. **Audio

15. Weird Parenting Wins by Hillary Frank: This was darling. I LOVED Frank's podcast back in the day, and this audio book was like an extended episode **Audio

14. Triptych by Karin Slaughter: I always love the first book in a series, especially when I read it in random order. **Audio

 13. Fractured by Karin Slaughter: I cannot quit the Slaughter audiobooks. Kathleen Early is SO GOOD. **Audio

12. Undone by Karin Slaughter: Ditto. **Audio

11. Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter: This one was a stand-alone and really good. **Audio

10. Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir: This one was not as good as I hoped it would be, but it had its moments. **2021

9. Love at First by Kate Clayborn: I did not love this as much as I loved Love Lettering, but it was definitely cute. **Audio **2021

8. Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid: NOT my favorite one of her books, but still a fun way to pass an afternoon at the pool with the kids. **2021

7. The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny: Not my favorite because the end was really unsatisfying-- THEY GOT THE WRONG GUY! 

6. The Long Way Home by Louise Penny: I couldn't get totally into this, but I do love these characters. **Audio

5. Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny: This kept me guessing in a good way.

4. The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny: A departure because it only featured 3 characters from the usual cast, this mystery was intricate and it set up the next book perfectly. **Audio

3. How the Light Gets in by Louise Penny: My favorite book of the series so far. **Audio

2. Last Summer at the Golden Hotel by Elyssa Friedland: DARLING. A perfect summer read. **2021

1. The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth: I loved this light thriller and was not expecting the twists. **2021
