It’s reading season! Autumn is the perfect time to curl up with a good book. Here are a few books I read this past month – some I loved, some that were okay, and one that I’m currently reading.
Small towns seem to have the biggest secrets. In Shaker Heights, a quiet suburb of Cleveland, they take pride in the fact everything is planned – from the colors of the houses to the lives of those who live there. When artist Mia moves in with her daughter Pearl, everyone in the Richardson family is fascinated with the mother – daughter duo. When conflict arises Mrs. Richardson is determined to uncover the secrets of Mia’s past. But nothing happens without consequence, and her obsession comes with devastating costs. This book started out strong, but the ending felt rushed and the reasoning a little far-fetched at times. I give it a 3/5.
And it truly was…unbelievable. Journalist Katy Tur shares what it was like behind the scenes of the craziest campaign in American history. Whatever your political beliefs may be, this is enlightening and a first-hand account of a front row experience.
At times heartbreaking and at times hilarious, this autobiography by comedian Ms Patt will leave you astonished. This was a book I had trouble putting down and devoured until the end. I highly recommend!
Here is a book that is on my to-be-read list…Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land. It tells the story of a girl named Milly who’s mother is a serial killer. After realizing the only way to stop her is to turn her mother in, Milly finds herself in a new home that comes with its own secrets and complications. Milly starts to wonder how much of her mother’s nature is a part of her and if she’s doomed to turn out like her mother after all.
