I Shouldn’t Drink While I Read

Love in a Nutshell—Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

Guys, I’m so far behind this from last summer. Yeesh.

Which means, that I also kind of don’t remember it because during the summer I have a tendency to read books that are lighthearted and silly, and what I lovingly refer to as “nonsense books”.

I love Janet Evanovichs work, she’s hilarious and after reading the description of this book, I DO kind of remember it.

It’s about a woman whose husband left her, she was fired from her job, so she goes back to her parents summerhouse “The Nutshell” to try to turn it into a B and B while working as a spy for a beer company to pay the bills.

Roughly.

I remember liking it, I gave it a solid 3 stars so I definitely thought it was funny and entertaining.

Good summer read. The end.

The Husband List—Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

Okay, I’ll level with you. Even after reading the description of this book to remind myself what it was about: I don’t remember it.

But I also gave it three stars so I enjoyed it last summer!!! I must have.

God I have to start writing little reviews on GoodReads to remind myself later.

Like Hansel and Gretels trail of breadcrumbs so I can find my way back.

I might have to reread this because reading the description it sounds funny and interesting.

Too bad it didn’t stick in my brain. I must’ve been drinking too many Caesars at the cottage when I read this.

Hot Stuff—Janet Evanovich and Leanne Banks

Maybe I just shouldn’t read during the summer….

Or while drinking.

Yet another summer read where I don’t remember diddly. But this also got a 3 star rating from me on GoodReads!

Basically this book is about a girl who rents a room in a condo belonging to a drag queen. She’s then made to look after his dog because his apartment keeps getting broken into. Cate starts falling for some cop. There’s socialites and tyre salesmen, all in all, it’s the same kind of humour as her Stephanie Plum series.

Book List Update

I’ve already started reading The Scent of Jasmine–Jude Deveraux last night and it’s promising to be just as good of a read as her past books. Also over the past week a few new books have come out that I am excited to read and I’m disappointed that are at the bottom of my reading list. Charlaine Harris has a new Sookie Stackhouse book out called Dead Reckoning very excited to read that, I think I’ll bump it up the reading list for when Trueblood comes back on. 

   And Rick Riordan has a new book out called The Throne of Fire, it’s with his new series The Kane Chronicles.

I’m slowly but surely working my way through the second shelf of my reading list and proud to announce (humbly of course, lol) that I have read just a little over thirty books since January! Naturally, people are going to tell me I need a social life and whatnot, but you would find it easy to do this as well if you only had a part time and your dogs like to sleep during the day so they can harass you at night.

      Coming soon I’ll be making a Summer Reading button where you can find all my favourite summer reads and a few new ones that people have recommended to me.

What’s your favourite summer book?
