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.
