Above photo has nothing to do with the books. Just wanted to show you my neighbors trumpet vine which is literally holding up their fence. Here little hummingbird, here here....
I read 4 books on Vacation and here are my thoughts, or reviews if you will.
Hyperbole and a Half by Alli Brosh was very funny. I read it in one sitting on the beach. The dog chapters were absolute perfection. I've not read a comic book in a long time. Her book is a mix of comic book and poorly drawn pictures which make you laugh...
I think she has successfully climbed inside a dog's brain and translated it for humans.
Foal Play by Katherine O'Sullivan is the first in the Colleen McCabe series. This book sent to me by CHANNON was the perfect read for the Outer Banks. It is set in the Outer Banks.
The murder mystery is amusing and pure fun. There is little to no graphic detail of a murder. It is silly and it was the perfect book to take to on our trip. It was also set during the week of the 4th of July .....in a word: perfect.
Crones Don't Whine was a thought provoking little read that I found on the shelves of the cottage. I want to be a Crone like the author Bolen. My favorite quote is this:
"Once you retire boundary keeping is an absolute necessity"
She is very very right on this one. I've been working on boundaries all year. In fact I think it was my 2015 resolution.
Deep Dark Down by Hector Tobar is fantastic. Get your hands on this book. It does more than tell the story of the 33 Chilean minors who were trapped below the Earth for many many days. It is a beautifully written book. It is thought provoking and fascinating.
I LOVED IT.
There you go-----my vacation beach reads. What are you reading?
