my first Twitterature

boy do i love to read!  so much so that when i went to turn in my card for the library's summer reading program, i believe the librarian thought i was lying when i reported that i had read three books in one week!  but i did.  honest :)

here are some of the books i've finished over the past month:

Composing Amelia - a very real story about mental illness.  also about finding your way in life when things don't go the way you expected.  #inspiring #christianchicklit

Gift From the Sea - timeless advice for women.  every modern mom should read this! #alltimefavorite

True Colors - i have a friend who absolutely adores Kristin Hannah. i thought this was all right.  it was a bit suspenseful in parts and also brought tears to my eyes, so i guess that makes it a winner.  #aboutforgiveness

Summer People - my dream is to live on the beach, so i enjoy books set on the coast as i can live my beach life vicariously through the characters.  didn't like the ending of this one. #beachread #Nantucket

Sharp Objects - i guess you either love or hate Gillian Flynn.  so far i love her.  this book fascinated me. #thriller #shouldbeamovie

The Age of Miracles - seeing earth shattering events happen through the eyes of an 11 year old was extremely enjoyable.  if it was a movie, my husband would even love this story. #magical

check out the Modern Mrs. Darcy's Twitterature for more quick book reviews.

the links to amazon are NOT affiliate links, partly because i cannot figure out how to get it to work on my blog :)


  1. Gift from the Sea and anything Elin Hilderbrand are on my short list of books I've checked out from the library over and over again but have never cracked the covers of. Thanks for the reminders, I think. :)

  2. I've read a few books by Hilderbrand and the setting always captivates me.

    Two of my friends are big Kristin Hannah friends. I'm keeping my eye out for her at the local used bookstore.

  3. Gillian Flynn is on my list, I just don't know which of hers to start with. Have you read Gone Girl?

    1. I did read Gone Girl earlier this year. It was good to a point, but then I got restless and wasn't as interested in finishing the book, although I did make it to the end. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I liked Sharp Objects a whole lot more.
