After moving to the suburbs in May, my morning commute is a solid hour on a good day. All that time in the car made me download Audible in what turned out to be the best decision of my life! I’m a book worm at heart, but everyone knows life can get in the way of our favorite hobbies. However, now that I spend HOURS in the car, I fly through a novel a week. It’s heaven. Actually, sometimes I find myself parked in the car long after I’ve reached my destination if I’m at a particularly good part… so I decided to share the best books I read this summer so far.
The 9 Best Books I Read This Summer…
….and the perfect recommendation for each reader!
For the lover of Scientology documentaries:
The Marriage Pact sucked me in and thoroughly creeped me out in a can’t-look-away kind of way. Newlyweds Alice and Jake are invited to a secret club, The Pact, who’s sole purpose is protecting marriage. However, it soon reveals itself to be a violent, obsessive cult, and there seems to be no way out. This book takes new meaning to “till death do us part”.
For anyone with family drama (read: all of us):
Although I’m typically a twisty mystery lover, I ADORED this book. I cried, in the best way possible, throughout the whole epilogue. Harper and Tabatha are identical twins whose parents divorced and took custody of each, moving them away from each other, (yes, just like the Parent Trap). One summer, when each is drowning in their own unescapable personal drama, they decide to switch places.
