I think I am recovering from my reading slump. Thanks for all the great suggestions. Below is what I ended up reading last month. I am linking up to Modern Mrs Darcy's "What I have Been Reading".
The Secret Place by Tana French.
This book was a slow burn for me. The story could of unfolded just a touch faster but the who did it factor kept me reading. You can't go wrong with a murder mystery at a boarding school. I didn't realize until later this book is part of a series. Interestingly Modern Mrs Darcy had another one of Tana French's book on her Un-Put-Down-able List -The Likeness.
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
I love adventure books and especially those that about people who tackle these incredible long trails. Bill and his friend set out to hike the Appalachian trail. My favorite quote was this by Bill.
"We didn't walk 2,200 miles, it's true, but here's the thing; we tried"
This was on Modern Mrs Darcy's Summer Reading Guide. This is being made into a movie as well.
Lastly another book from the Summer Reading Guide, I read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson.
I loved loved it. This YA book is a great summer read. Their adventure driving from California to Connecticut is indeed EPIC. Amy is dealing with tragic circumstance and Roger with a break up.
My favorite quote-
"I'd found out that when you're never going to see someone again. It's not the goodbye that matters. What matters is that you're never going to be able to say anything else to them. And you're left with an eternal unfinished conversation."
