Book Friday: Read These Books

2016.07.15 Book Friday

I have this amazing new job I plan to write about soon and totally forgot to add my book reviews before I went away for work. I have been reading up a storm lately. My goal is to get in 50 pages per day in hopes I can make my reading goal this year. Any extra time I have a book in my hand and here are three new ones for you to enjoy.

The Travelers by Chris Pavone. Duh! It’s obvious I would pick a book about travelers. I can’t help it. I was a huge fan of Chris Pavone’s first book, The Expats which had me traveling around the world with espionage and lies. The Travelers does the same, but the plot is good and the way in which Pavone writes will have you up all night trying to finish this book. I won’t be able to look at my travel magazines the same after reading it.

15th Affair by James Patterson. James. Sweet James. I enjoy a good James Patterson book. The chapters are short, the pace is quick, and it’s a great book to take your mind away. I will say read these in the correct order. There are certain nuisances and idiosyncrasies you get from reading from the beginning.

Rich and Pretty by Ramaan Alam. I closed this book thinking of how many of my friendships have changed over the years. It's many things. I've moved away, people have gotten married, divorced, had kids, lost parents, and siblings, and we have lost those connections. Alam captures beautifully what happens when two people who were so close discover their separation is making them better. This is a great book to get lost in on a plane.
