Design-2014-07-23-11-32-31So I know I can not possibly be the only person who does this.  But Hannah tells me its one of my ME things, so I figured I’d chat about it! But I match what I’m reading with where I am. And then. I read certain genres more depending on the season. And I do all this on top of being a mood reader to the max. Sometimes it makes it hard to get to review books on time but hey. It is what it is. This post is gonna give you some examples from things I have coming up this August through October. And I’ll also chat real quick about the book I read in Miami which was recommended to me by Estelle!  In Miami I wanted a chicklit.  E told me The Undomestic Goddess made her LAUGH OUT LOUD.  THat was all she had to say! I devoured it, loved it, and have since purchased multiple Sophie Kinsella books!  I mean come on, I was away for a bachelorette weekend, chicklit HAD TO BE my choice!

book fairsThis weekend was PRETTY awesome for book buying!  While it is true, if I LOVE a book enough I buy the hard copy no matter the cost, when trying out new reads, I am a BIT more frugal.  So, when I found out that there were TWO library / donation book sales within ten minutes of my apartment? You KNOW I was allllll over that.

The Likeness

by:Tana French

Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. She’s transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O’Neill, but she’s too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl’s ID says her name is Lexie Madison (the identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detective, and she looks exactly like Cassie.

With no leads, no suspects, and no clue to Lexie’s real identity, Cassie’s old undercover boss, Frank Mackey, spots the opportunity of a lifetime. They can say that the stab wound wasn’t fatal and send Cassie undercover in her place to find out information that the police never would and to tempt the killer out of hiding. At first Cassie thinks the idea is crazy, but she is seduced by the prospect of working on a murder investigation again and by the idea of assuming the victim’s identity as a graduate student with a cozy group of friends.

As she is drawn into Lexie’s world, Cassie realizes that the girl’s secrets run deeper than anyone imagined. Her friends are becoming suspicious, Sam has discovered a generations-old feud involving the old house the students live in, and Frank is starting to suspect that Cassie’s growing emotional involvement could put the whole investigation at risk.
