Books Read In July 2020

All images are from Goodreads.com except the Playing Nicely cover picture is from Amazon.
In July, I read 9 books.
The Perfect Wife -JP Delaney This was kind of a hard book for me to get into. There was a lot of scientific talk and for me because of that reason the novel didn't flow well. I did end up liking the book just not as much as I thought I would. I rated it 3 stars on Goodreads. 
Summerlost -Ally Condie This was a cute story, not one of my favorite books ever, but it held my interest. This was such a quick read that I think I read it in one day. The story line was very creative. I rated it 3 stars.
Summer Days & Summer Nights -Multiple Authors I re-read this book because it's a Summer themed book. While I don't like it as much as the holiday/winter themed book by multiple authors, I still enjoyed it a lot. I rated it 3 stars.
Rules For Being A Girl -Candace Bushnell & Katie Cotugno I liked this book and found it enjoyable even though it wasn't a favorite. I rat…

Books Read in May 2020

In May, I re-read three books and read one new to me book.


I re-read these three books which are a part of a series. Each novel is told in e-mails and IM chats. I really love novels written through that format. I rated these three books 5 stars on Goodreads.com when I first read them. These books tell the story of a group of Stay At Home Moms (referred to as SAHM's in the book) and talks about their everyday lives/etc. I really enjoyed re-reading these novels.

The last novel that I read in May is called Fake Date by Monica Murphy. This is the second novel in the Dating series. I read the first one back in April. I have the third book (on my Kindle app on my iPad) and I don't have the fourth one yet. Books 5 & 6 in the series are coming out this year.  I really enjoyed this story. The characters/plot/etc. were all really great. I'm really liking this series. I rated this novel 5 stars.
