June Books


Mary Anne by Daphne du Maurier
The Girl I Loved by James Whitcomb Riley
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
Kirkland Revels by Victoria Holt
Tick Tock by James Patterson
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt
Savannah by Eugenia Price
What's Your Poo Telling You?  by Josh Richman and Anish Sheth
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

*(Summary is inspired by Debbie!) Half of the books I read this time were older (Mary Anne, The Girl I Loved, Kirkland Revels, Savannah, Treasure Island), and well, relatively slow styles to read. I still liked them all. Mary Anne is not as good as Rebecca or Jamaica Inn, and I liked Victoria Holt growing up. The Girl I Loved and What's Your Poo Telling You ( :) present from my sister) were very short. Sarah's Key was mostly good, slow at parts, and kinda depressing. Probably most depressing in it was that every relationship mentioned had divorce somewhere. Tick Tock was exciting, but I wouldn't reread it. The Weird Sisters was good, had a feel-good ending but it lacked a little something. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil was inspired by our trip to Savannah (as was Savannah, well and Treasure Island). It was very interesting as a nonfiction book, and I liked all mainly because of our trip :). No absolute favorites this month, but all good company.
