You also have time to read more books. Four, to be exact. This month I can recommend three out four with no reservations.
First in June was Cocoa Beach by Beatriz Williams. This was the one I was kind of lukewarm about this month. I had read the very enjoyable Tiny Little Thing by Williams two years ago, so I bought Cocoa Beach when it was on sale for Kindle a ways back. This dragged for me, and I didn't care for the ending, although I did feel compelled to finish it to see who was lying.
Another amazing Kindle deal was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. What a treat this book was! Why don't people write letters anymore? Never mind, I know why. But this book made me long for a time when people did. This story is told entirely (very nearly) through letters. It is a love story but also a history lesson about the German occupation of Guernsey (which I knew nothing about). Loved it. LOVED. IT. It's been brought to my attention that this has been turned into a movie for Netflix (to release soon). My hopes aren't high because I think it would be the perfect fit for a mini-series instead of a movie, but I'll watch it regardless.
Next was The Lying Game by Ruth Ware. The Woman in Cabin 10 was my BOTM club introduction to Ruth Ware last year. I liked it, but I read her previous release In a Dark, Dark Wood after Woman and enjoyed it even more. I also got The Lying Game through BOTM several months back, but I didn't hear much buzz about it and wondered if it would be as good. I was pleasantly surprised to find it to be my favorite of Ware's so far. I'm on the waiting list at the library to read her latest.
Speaking of library waiting lists, I put Stephen King's The Outsider on my list at the library after it was released and was happy that I didn't even have to wait two weeks to have my turn. This was Classic King that I slipped into like a pair of perfectly fit jeans. This is the first time I've read a NEW release by King right when it came out (last year I read 11/22/63) since Doctor Sleep was released. I've forgotten how much fun that is. Is it weird that a horror novel is fun? Never mind, I know the answer to that too.
