What I've read in 2020 - Quarter 2

If I'm being honest I'm glad to see 2020 Q2 finished; these last 3 months have been rough. Texas started reopening in early May, but I'm still mostly staying inside and only going out when I need to. This means I've have lots of reading time! Here's what I read in 2020 quarter 2


The Orphan's Tale - 4/5  This was a rare book where I enjoyed both the narrators


The Engagements - 4/5  This one took a while to get into, but I really liked how everything tied together at the end


We Were the Lucky Ones - 5/5  Hands down one of the best books I've read, ever


Limelight - 4/5   This was a fun story that was easy to picture; it'd make a cute Netflix movie


Bringing Down the Duke - 3/5    Not bad, but not great either


The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - 5/5  The story really grabs you and keeps you interested right from the start. I could easily see this being made into a movie or HBO mini series


My Oxford Year - 2/5    Spoiler Alert! This felt like two totally separate books. The first half is your typical chick lit, goes to the UK and falls for her professor who also happens to be terribly wealthy and have a reputation as a playboy. Then halfway through we're hit with the bombshell that he has terminal illness? No thank you. That is not the book I signed up to read.


My Not So Perfect Life - 4/5   Exactly what you expect in a Sophie Kinsella book; a few laughs and a happy ending


The Man of my Dreams - 2/5     I wanted to like this book so badly, but ultimately just couldn't. It all came down to the main character just not being likable


Match Making for Beginners - 3/5    This sounds like a spoiler, but it really isn't : everything gets better after Blix dies. This one starts so slow but picks up in the middle and held my interest to the end


American Princess - 3/5   Interesting read that got better as it went. I really liked that you could tell the author did extensive research and included so many real people and events.  


The Bromance Book Club - 3/5  Fun and different story line that's great for the beach or pool
