I think that I'm likely to get through July's to read list faster than ever - healthily spurred on I'm sure by my various travels this month. I have a journey to London and back, to Spain and back - and I'm sure I'll have plenty of time lying in the sun if the weather stays good and so I'm actually really excited to get through this stack of books this month!
1: Off The Page - Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
Now to be honest, this is the one that I'm most excited about which is strange as it's so not my typical kind of book. Jodi Picoult has always been one of my favourite authors, but this isn't her sad, thought-provoking usual offerings, instead - this is a book about a prince that comes to life from the pages of a fairytale and has to learn to assume the role of a real boy in a real world. It sounds very Enchanted, and I'm so not against that. I'm looking forward to a good chick lit, I only hope that it doesn't let me down.
2: Tell Me No Secrets - Julie Corbin
From one extreme to the other - because I'm pretty sure that this book is going to be about a woman who killed and buried her friend. What I do know is this is a book about a woman who has set out and created an entire life for herself only for her friend from her teenage years to ring and threaten to shatter it all. This sounds great, dark and everything that I normally look for in a book. I'm really excited to get reading this one and it'll definitely be one of my travel books, I think.
3: The Child's Secret - Amanda Brooke
I'm just no so sure about this one and I'm not sure why that is - but I'm giving it a shot none the less. i think that this is going to be pretty dark even by my standards. This is a book about a child that goes missing, and that creates a lot of suspicion around just about everyone that she came into contact with. I can't wait to see how this one pans out, and I think this is going to be one of those interlinking stories that throws clues in subtly from the blue. I think this is going to be one I'll have to force myself to read, but I bet that I enjoy it when I get to the end. We'll soon see, I supposed!
4: Somewhere Inside Of Happy - Anna McPartlin
I keep putting off reading this book and I'm not really sure why - it's exactly up my street; a strong woman whose life is falling apart when her daughter goes missing. This is exactly the type of heartbreaking thriller that I tend to go for, but I just can't bring myself to pick it up and get stuck in. I think this will be a holiday book - so fingers crossed that I get through it lying in the sun1
So there's my books for July! Let me know what you're reading so I can buy some in ready for August.
