Book Review | June

Hi Friends!
I'm going to go ahead and say that June was a weird reading month for me.  
I tried to start a couple of books and just couldn't get into them, I hate it when that happens.  
I ended up reading 3 books and liked all of them.

The first one was I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh.
Man this one was intense.  
I didn't know if I was going to like it because it starts off with a little boy getting killed (not a spoiler, it's in the description) and I have a hard time reading that kind of thing.
But it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and there were definitely some twists and turns that I didn't see coming.
Overall a good read!

The second book I read was Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris.
Ya'll, this one is crazy!
I read it in 2 days because I had to know how it ended.
Shew, I mean major suspense thriller and heavy heavy on the creepy.  
Like make your skin crawl creepy!
If that's your thing, read this book!

The third book I read was Cancel the Wedding by Carolyn T. D.
I have been wanting to read this one for a while since Shay raved about it in her  May 2016 book review.
It didn't disappoint.  
I put this book in my southern chic lit category.  
It was definitely a welcome change after reading Behind Closed Doors.

The two books that I tried to start reading and didn't finish were The Girls and Crazy Rich Asians.  I almost finished The Girls but another book became available so I discarded this one as I wasn't crazy about it.  I just couldn't' get into the story line and the characters weren't doing it for me.  I think I got 3/4 of the way through it so I will go back and finish it, but I know it's not going to be a favorite.
Crazy Rich Asians was hard to get into for me, all the different families and names and people were too much to try and keep track.  I've read such great reviews of this book that I will probably go back and try to finish it.

Happy Friday!
