What I Read in June 2016

The Club Dumas

Where and why: The Club Dumas is one of my boyfriends favorite books and our recent book club book.  We already had a copy sitting on the bookshelf that I had been putting off.7194

Should you read it: Yes. It’s a classic. Mystery! Literature! History! It’s a sophisticated, well written summer read. Follow it up with the movie afterwards.

Quote: “One is never alone with a book nearby, don’t you agree? Every page reminds us of a day that has passed and makes us relive the emotions that filled it. Happy hours underlined in red pencil, dark ones in black…”

The Chronology of Water

Where and why: A friend highly recommended this book so I placed it on hold at the library. She said it would gut me.9214995

Should you read it: Yes. It will gut you.

Quote: “Your life doesn’t happen in any kind of order. Events don’t have cause and effect relationships the way you wish they did. It’s all a series of fragments and repetitions and pattern formations. Language and water have this in common.”
