What I Read: May ’20

The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson: I really enjoyed in the Garden of the Beasts so was excited to see Larson had a companion book on the British side of WW2. I enjoy his nuanced and well researched non-fiction.

North Haven by Sarah Moriarty: This was a Kindle First book about a family’s beach house in Maine and how 4 grown children grieve their parents loss. It was OK. I wish I loved some of these Kindle First reads more but alas, I am just churning thru them to get them off my Kindle.

The Special Power of Restoring Lost Things by Courtney Elizabeth Mauk: This was a Kindle First book and was just OK. It was a very fast read but found the surprise ending 100% unearned.

The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent: I stayed up a hour past my bedtime to finish this book – I cannot tell you the last time this happened! I could not decide who did it and was back and forth throughout the whole book. This thriller was part Gone Girl and part Thirty Shades of Gray.

A Study in Scarlet Women (Lady Sherlock #1) by Sherry Thomas: This was a recommendation from a friend and a great one at that! Thomas imagines what the Sherlock Holmes story would look like if he’d been a she instead. I loved it and cannot wait to devour the second in the series!
