June was a jackpot for free books. I read several from my shelf, which helped me mark several off my list for the year.
The Wife Between Us: 3
Meh. This was nothing exciting. If you’ve read one suspense novel, you’ve read this plot before.
Eligible- A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice: 4
This was a pleasant surprise. Its a bit smutty, but quit humorous. I’m going to have to go back and re-read the actual Pride and Prejudice now. If you are a Jane Austen snob, you may not like this.
Ember in the Ashes (audiobook rented from Madison County Library): 5
This did my teenage girl heart good. I love dystopian fiction with a girl hero. I can’t wait to read the next couple of books in this series.
Educated (audiobook rented from Madison County Library): 5
Well the hype about this one did not disappoint. People kept saying this was very similar to The Glass Castle, but I disagree. Her challenges were very different. I highly recommend this memoir.
The Paper Magician (free audiobook with Prime Reading): 3
I almost quit this one. I just could not get into it. There are better books out there.
Salt to the Sea (free audiobook with Prime Reading): 4
Excellent read. I enjoyed learning about the largest maritime disaster that you’ve never heard about. Yes… an even bigger disaster than Titanic. 9,000 people perished.
