Reading Challenge Update: July 2020

Hey friends! I realized Thursday that I’m actually late on this post and it should’ve been last week, since today is August 1st. Honestly, this has been a very confusing month, and with confusion comes inability to focus. Unfortunately, I only read two books this month, but I’m not looking so bad at 22/30 books! As always, I receive no compensation for reviewing these books or you purchasing them. I’ve included links to purchase the books on Amazon, but feel free to support your local library (if they’re open, or you can find it as an ebook) or bookstore (if you can order it). But please, don’t go out if it isn’t safe!

The King’s Deception by Steve Berry

I read the next installment in Steve Berry’s Cotton Malone books. When I say “next installment,” I really mean I’m trying to play catch up because I’m about five or six books behind, and Steve is NOT slowing down! This book was unique to Berry’s other books, because this time Malone’s son Gary joins in on the adventure. Gary is supposed to spend Thanksgiving break with his father in Denmark, but something in London goes awry and Malone is once again in the middle. The CIA uncovers a secret that could rip the UK apart and start The Troubles up in Ireland again, and a CIA agent threatens to rip Malone’s life up, too. Overall, I liked this book more than the last one. It was a breath of fresh air to have Gary along for the ride.

Wish Upon a Shell by Kay Correll

Alright, I wasn’t really a fan of this one. I got this one for free through BookBub, and I’m probably not going to continue the series. Julie is a 36 year old woman who owns her own bakery and is friends with Tally and Susan, the owners of a cafe and hotel, respectively. They all live and work on Belle Island, a small coastal town on the Florida Gulf shore. Reed is a visitor to Belle Island for a month long vacation, by order of his boss. Reed and Julie hit it off, but Reed has a tragic story and more baggage than a 40s film star on a month long luxury cruise. The characters felt almost like caricatures of who they were supposed to be. And let me tell you, I wouldn’t be touched that a man I met earlier that month proposed to me (or ANYONE) after he broke up with me (or anyone), I’d be freaked out. But I guess I’m not a romantic or something.

Well, at least one of the books was good. I’m reading a couple right now I’m enjoying, so August’s report will be better. Stay tuned!
