Summer Reading

The summer is a time for reading, although I don't really seem to have managed to read that many books this year yet. Our book club chooses two books to read over the summer, this year is was Raven Black by Ann Cleeves and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

So far I have only read the first

Raven Black is the first in the Shetland Quartet Series, which has been on the TV, but I never saw it. It is a crime book, which is not what I would normally read, but I did actually enjoy it. It is set in Shetland in January and a body is found in the snow. Suspicion falls on one man a loner Magnus Tait, but not surprisingly it is not him that murdered the girl. I won't spoil it for you. It was a nice easy read and I would probably read the rest in the series now.

I have just started to read Gone Girl so haven't really got into it properly yet.

The other book I read over the summer was 

I do like Sophie Kinsella's books - they are a nice light holiday read and this one is the same.Poppy loses her engagement ring, finds a phone in a bin, starts a conversation with Sam, the owner of the phone, which leads to ...  well I am not going to tell you, you will have to read the book. An enjoyable read.

What have you read over the summer?

I've just managed one book this summer, but it was a good one. The Son by Philipp Meyer. I've got a few others on my ipad that I might finish before the end of the month.

Both of these sounds like good books. I've read some of Sophie Kinsella and agree they are light easy reads.
