50 Books in 2012 - July Recap

I set a goal for myself to read 50 books in 2012. My monthly recaps are below:

January | February | March | April | May | June

This month, I read 8 more books!

I read:

Distant Shores by Kristin Hannah:

It's no secret that I love Kristin Hannah. I think she's one of my very favorite authors, and tied for the best author I discovered in 2012.

This book is a heart wrenching and heart warming story of a marriage that appears perfect on the outside but has some deepening cracks as the stresses of life take their toll. It was the perfect summer read.

Love in a Nutshell by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly:

Light hearted with a dark lining, it kept me turning the pages until the very end. Again, the perfect summer read!

Smitten by Janet Evanovich:

This book was a short, easy to read, light hearted romance novel that was a quick but fun read. Not too complex of a plot, but perfect for tuning out the stresses of life and diving into a fun romance for a bit.

Wife for Hire by Janet Evanovich:

Another of Janet's super light hearted and not deep at all love stories. I was wondering at first about the shallow plots of these books, but I decided I liked the quick and easy reads. Full of laughs and only take a day or two to read.

Three to get Deadly by Janet Evanovich:

Book three in the Stephanie Plum series. The more I read, the more hooked I am! Stephanie and Lula make a dynamic and completely HILARIOUS team!

Four to Score by Janet Evanovich:

Book four in the Stephanie Plum series. I strongly dislike Joyce Barnhardt.

High Five by Janet Evanovich:

Book five in the Stephanie Plum series. Grandma Mazur is quickly becoming one of my most favorite book characters of all time.

Hot Six by Janet Evonivich:

Book six in the Stephanie Plum series. This time, Ranger's in trouble!! Could not put this down!
