what I read in june

July 13, 2016

today I'm linking up with jana and steph for show us your books, what I read in june. the title of the link up has 'books' plural; however, sadly in the month of june, I was only able to finish one book. hey, it's better than nothing and will make for a short post for you to read. if you're like me, you end up buying a lot of books from these linkups so if anything, I'm helping to narrow it down for you.

drumroll... the one book I managed to read in june was...


what she knew by gilly macmillan
in a heartbeat, everything changes…
rachel is walking with her eight-year-old son, ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. it’s an ordinary request on an ordinary sunday afternoon, and rachel has no reason to worry—until ben vanishes. police are called, search parties go out, and rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. as hours and then days pass without a sign of ben, everyone who knew him is called into question. as she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. and the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most. {amazon.com}
my take: A-
this book definitely struck a chord that had me asking "what would I do?" in this situation as a mother. and by as a mother I mean as a cat mother, since I don't actually have kids yet. when seemingly all odds are against you, do you take matters into your own hands and risk looking like a crazy person or do you trust in the system to solve the case? as females, we must trust our instincts because they rarely lead us astray and this book is a subtle reminder of that. what she knew was an easy read that will keep you guessing.

so that's it for june. you're welcome for keeping it short this month :) happy reading, everyone!
