What I Actually Read on Vacation & a Giveaway!

Yes, I’m late following up on my vacation reading.  You can read the original post here:  https://teripolen.com/2013/06/28/vacation-means/.  Getting one son ready for his first year at college and another for his first year of high school has taken a chunk of time this summer, so that’s the excuse I’m using.  But I digress.  I had a great time on vacation, visited Savannah for the first time, and we’re reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil for book club, so I’ll have a real life visuals when I re-read it (read it several years ago, but can’t remember much about it).  Anyway……

12888599 I finished this book and it was interesting, but I strongly disliked the MC, Grace.  She was probably one of the most subtly manipulative characters I’ve come across.

12139963 If you’re into sci-fi and genetic engineering, this is the book for you.  Loved it – think I finished this one in 2 days.


179780 Part of this book disappointed me.  At the beginning of the book, I felt too much time was spent focusing on the mother’s acting life and it had nothing to do with advancing the story.  The dialogue during those parts seemed awkward and it took 70 pages or so to get to the action.  Still glad I read it.

17178032 I finished this book and you can read the review at https://teripolen.com/2013/07/08/a-gift-of-wings-by-stephanie-stamm/.  Wonderful start to a great YA/NA series.

13455112 I started this book and only got about 60 pages in and then had to stop and finish some NetGalley books.  Definitely something I’m planning on finishing.

17928249 Unfortunately, I still haven’t started this – probably should take it off my Goodreads list for now, but still looking forward to reading it.

On Monday, I’ll be reviewing the book Wink by Eric Trant and giving away a free copy to some lucky person who comments, so make sure you stop by!
