What I Read: July 11-17

My Killer Vacation by Tessa Bailey: This was a fun read, although a bit ridiculous. I liked the combination romcom/murder mystery, and Tessa Bailey’s writing is fun enough that I’m always interested in what she will publish next.

The Last Move by Mary Burton: This was an interesting read with a compelling murder case (I won’t really call it a “mystery” because there wasn’t much to solve here – we pretty much know who the killer is right from the jump. There aren’t any major twist or surprises). This is definitely on the darker side without being TOO gratuitously gory.

Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade: Uhhh. SPOILER ALERT: I gave up on this book at the 70% mark (but I’m pretty sure that’s far enough to count it as “read”). I realized that 1. the characters are supposed to be 36 and 40, but they act like they’re in their early 20s and 2. I just didn’t really care what happened with them. This was just a little too long and a little too immature for me.

Secrets of a Summer Night (Wallflowers #1) by Lisa Kleypas: If you’re going to read historical romance, Lisa Kleypas is IT. I’ve been hoarding Kleypas novels for almost two years now, but I had only ever read two of them before finally picking this up (for what it’s worth, I’m going to read the entire Wallflowers series, before moving on to the Ravenels). This wasn’t the BEST historical romance I’ve ever read, but Kleypas’ writing is fantastic and I assume the books will only get better.

CURRENTLY READING: I won’t name it, but I’m reading a VERY popular romcom right now, and kind of enjoying it (at least so far…but I’m only on chapter two).
