Summers at Castle Auburn, The Safe-Keeper’s Secret, and The Truth-Teller’s Tale by Sharon Shinn
Good YA books! Sometimes I like discovering authors late, because then there are plenty of books available for me to read.
I got a bunch of Janet Evanovitch books from the public library (I am trying to be thrifty and buy fewer books):
Three to Get Ready, Four to Score, Seven Up, Hard Eight, To the Nines, and Ten Big Ones
All of these were very formulaic, and I could easily finish one of these books in an afternoon, or half an afternoon. Nothing wrong with that! I’ve been a little stressed recently, so I’m giving myself permission to read a bunch of totally frivolous books.
Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers by Louise Rennison
I’ve missed a volume or two in the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series, but this still made me laugh out loud when I was reading it in public.
