The First Girl Child by Amy Harmon

Romance books are not my genre but Amy Harmon always makes me read it till the last page. She is such a good writer, and picking her newest book The First Girl Child I couldn’t go wrong. Beautiful, heart breaking fairy tale which kept me reading till late hours of the night. Great story, full of cursed kingdom, different clans, keepers and runes, magic and mystery. Characters very well developed and scenes beautiful described. My favorite part of the book was the motive of the powerful women.

The Girl in the Grave by Helen Phifer

It’s a first book in the series about forensic pathologist Beth Adams. I will definitely read more about her. Interesting, fast paced criminal thriller. “The girl in the grave” starts with discovering of a young girl body under the coffin of different dead woman which was mysteriously requested to be exhumed. Did the killer want the police to find the girl in the grave? More clues and unpredictable situations to come.

Here We Are by Aarti Namdev Shahani

I loved this book so much and it made me very emotional because I am immigrant myself. I came to this country when I was 24 years old. My parents struggled the same way that Aarti parents did. But because of this whole experience we became stronger people and sky is the limit :). Very well written memoir by #aartinamdevshahani, I could feel the strong connection between Aarti and her father, and other members of the family. Author also talks about how justice system is broken and corrupt specially when dealing with immigrants. 

Happy 4th of July!!!

Girl from the Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs

What an interesting read about person with mental disorder. In Elise case its Dissociative Identity Disorder. She has so many personalities living in her head. Book talks about very difficult problem, that abused people usually developed some mental problems and system instead to help them, threats them like a crazy lunatic. I think the abuser should be locked and filled with tones of medications not other way around. Institutions let down victims of abuse on daily basis. Author did really good job of creating this difficult mind of a struggling person.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

I know, I am late to the party but better late than never 🙂 I can really say that I also, like most of you, enjoyed this book very much. The whole story was written well, and it was interesting to read. I got feeling that basis of Rules of Sympathy was taken from quantum physics what intrigue me a lot. I can’t wait to read more about Kvothe and his story. I wonder when will the third book come out.

The Whisper Man by Alex North

Omg don’t read this book at night! It was scary on the beginning, but it was so good I couldn’t stop reading it. What a page turner till the last paragraph. Missing boys, frightening house, good detectives’ job and concerned father. Just really,  really good crime debut.

I’ll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie

This story was really good. I felt like it was more Agatha Christie type mystery story. Summer camp, 5 siblings, dead father and his crazy will. Who was guilty of the events from 20 years ago, who did it? I couldn’t put this book down until I knew. Good writing done by Catherine McKenzie.

The First Mistake by Sandie Jones

Page turner on the way!! June 11th to be exact :). There is so much going on in this book. When I thought I knew what will be next, another twist popped out. Good writing, very well-developed characters and big surprise on the end. I hope sandy Jones will write many more books because so far, she is doing great job.

The Rumor by Lesley Kara

Rumor is so easy to start by some innocent comment or accusation and then it is very hard to stop it to spread out like a landslide.  Joanna didn’t even suspect what could happen by just saying out loud her thoughts. I really enjoyed this psychological thriller about rumor and its consequences. I couldn’t put the book down until I figured out who is the killer :). Good writing and great developed characters.

Degrees of Guilt by HS Chandler

Wow!! What a page turner. Great courtroom drama with twists and turns, very well-developed characters and good writing. Till the end I wasn’t sure what to think and then big shocker. I had goosebumps when I read some of the descriptions. Loved it. I will absolutely read more books by HS Chandler.
