Summer Reading

I read all the time but in the summer I go for a little lighter content. Below are three books that I have read so far that say summer to me! The reviews are from my Goodreads account. I’d love for you to follow/friend me!

Ruthie Beamish has her dream home, located near Long Island’s glorious Hamptons. The only problem is in order to afford it she must rent it out every summer and live somewhere else! Ruthie’s renter this year is Adeline Clay, sophisticated, elegant and very rich, and helps herself to much of Ruthie’s life. Aside from that, Ruthie is outsted out of her job as museum director. But this summer, Ruthie is fighting back. A great beach read with themes of family, home and even a possible romance!

Mary Alice Monroe’s current book, Beach House Reunion, is on the best seller list but I decided to go back to the beginning. After twenty years of not seeing her mother, Cara Rutledge comes down to the Low Country to spend a few days at her mother’s beach house. She’s been living in Chicago and is not sure if she will like the slow pace that’s a part of her Southern roots. Anything else I would write would be spoilers. At times I thought this book bordered on the cheesy BUT at times I couldn’t put it down! It’s got me curious enough to read the next book in the series!

Three women who meet each other looking into assisted living decide to throw caution to the wind and go in together on a one year lease of a house in Tuscany. One of their neighbors is an American writer who helps them get acclimated and becomes a good friend too. I loved this book. It’s filled with food, wine and friendship, and the beautifully descriptive writing makes you feel like you are really there with the ladies. A book that shows it’s never too late to start over. Highly recommended!

I hope you enjoy these books, you really can’t go wrong with either one of them! You should see the stack of books I have waiting for me on my dresser! I better get to reading! You too!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    This seems to be an entirely new niche to me. I would love to try this out just for the novelty of it. I am more into biographies and non fiction. I am at present reading, autobiography of a yogi, it has been a very interesting read so far.

    Are you a lover of online slot gambling games? This game has existed for lots of years
    but remains one of the favourite games in Usernesia even in luxury gambling places like Las Vegas or Macau, slots are always neatly arranged waiting for followers to be able to
    levers and win jackpots that reach billions of rupiah..

    But , do you know if this game was at first considered a flop game?
    Indeed, at the start of this game created by their creator named Charles August Fey
    in 1894 in the United States, this machine was intended being an computerized poker game machine that could be moved using coins.

    After seeking to build his idea into actuality, Fey finally quit and considered his discovery a disappointment.
    But who would have thought that all this machine turned away to be one
    of the most widely used online games in the world. Not only in slot gambling games provided by gambling
    houses but also the concept utilized by various games as a “bonus game”.

    This is where the game involving the RNG or Random Number Generator was
    initiated, where the machine will give random values ​​that
    will determine what you will get each and every round of the
    overall game. Not only slots but additionally games like virtual sports or bonus video games like gacha also use
    this kind of concept.
