Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy has a fun feature she does each month called Twitterature. She describes it as short, casual reviews of books you’ve been reading. They’re done Twitter-style, which explains the clever name, and I’ve long wanted to participate in Twitterature, since I’m rarely up for writing a long book review.
So it looks like this month is the month. Here’s what I’ve been reading:
Summer Sisters by Judy Blume
A book about friendship over the years. I loved the fact that the characters were so well-developed, although I strongly related to one main character and didn’t much care for the other. #compelling
Ladies’ Night by Mary Kay Andrews
Has the usual MKA elements of a woman wronged & a southern setting. Florida this time. Loved that the main character was a blogger and house renovator. #light #fun
The Drop by Michael Connelly
This was my first Connelly book, a double mystery with Connelly’s homicide detective, Harry Bosch, as the main character. It didn’t change my life but kept me interested. #entertaining
Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand
Maybe my favorite EH book to date. Lots of interesting, complicated relationships playing out during a wedding weekend. Her Nantucket settings never disappoint. #highlyrecommend
It’s always fun to follow and connect with an author on Twitter, especially if you’ve enjoyed their books. I mean how else are you going to have a peek into what Judy Blume is thinking? The Judy Blume.
