My summer reading list...

It's sometimes hard for me to squeeze a book into my schedule during the school year, and now, after adding "finish a blog post" to my to-do list, it may be even harder. But during June and July, when I'm recharging my teacher batteries, I manage to find a little leisure time to read while enjoying the sun.

I've read two so far, and I'm working on a third:

And I'm working on ...

I really wasn't knocked out by The Husband's Secret. The story line kept my attention and the characters were believable, but it wasn't one of those books that made me sad when it ended. Three story lines eventually cross into one, and the husband's secret is predictable. 

However, The Girl on the Train I did enjoy. It was a page turner and less predictable - a quick, easy summer read. The book is filled with discontented characters in London going about their daily lives. The main character, the girl, is an alcoholic who ventures out each day by train, keenly observing the lives of others taking place outside of the train windows. She manages to insert herself where she doesn't belong to disclose her observations. This puts her in harms' way. Although I wasn't crazy about the ending, I did like it.

I've just starting What Alice Forgot, so I'll comment on that later. I'm on Chapter 5, and so far I'm entertained and looking forward to picking it back up. 

Have you all read any of these? If so, comment below and share your thoughts. I'd love to hear from you!
