The last day of the month and I‘m wrapping up my last read for July. I woke up early to make a dent in the to do list, so now I can take a slightly longer lunch this afternoon. I‘m indulging in one of my all time favourite summer dishes— a caprese pasta salad with arugula and balsamic vinaigrette, it‘s perfect for a hot day and everything I love about a summer salad.

hilded Looks delicious, love caprese salad 😍 4mo
catebutler @hilded I do too! This one was so easy to make and the flavours were incredible, especially with summer veggies from the farmer‘s market. 4mo
catebutler @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I think I‘m going to have to make another round of this in the next week or so. It was just too good! ☺️ 4mo

The Forgotten Garden | Kate Morton
post image

Just finished reading this book and it was absolutely memorizing. Kate Morton does a brilliant job weaving in and out of a story to find ones true past and discover family mysteries over three generations. It read like a real life, olden fairy tale.

tournevis I've read one, singular, book of historical fiction that did not make me want to scream even once. One. Chaire de pierre by Jacques Folch Ribas. His only book of historical fiction. 5mo
Dragon Hilary Mantel 5mo
JacqMac Philippa Gregory is probably my favourite. But I really had to think about it. 5mo
Birdsong28 @JacqMac Me too!!! But I don't have to think about it! Lol! 📚📖 5mo

Happy Friday to you all🙌💖
It's Week 2 of #MayMadness my #TBR this week with books that's #NewToMe
I've always seen books by #KateMorton but this will be my first book by her. I'm still at the beginning but the story is quite interesting despite the constant switch of POV ☺️
I also picked up a new book by my favorite writer #JayKristoff and can't wait to dive into it.

#partner #berkleypub — I am currently reading #TheAuPair and loving it. 😍 This debut is a must read for those of you that love #KateMorton ‘s book settings.

It‘s been a busy week with work and today is my husband‘s birthday so I‘m not sure how much reading I‘ll get in this weekend, but hopefully I‘ll finish soon!

See my previous post for my #review of #TheAnonymousGirl. I am really excited to start #freefall by debut author #jessicabarry!

Clockmaker's Daughter | Kate Morton
post image

Multiple voices w/lots of characters. Keep notes as it also switches back and forth between generations. Morton's writing is shear beauty and the plot is a interesting one. Book about murder, mystery and thievery. Birdie Bell is the clockmaker's daughter who history forgot her name and she watches everything unfold in the story. If you stick through the slow start and the many characters to keep track of, you will find a rewarding read in the end.

SilversReviews I agree.....you have to stick with it. 😊 13mo
