It is the middle of June and that means it is time to share June’s Book Reviews.
A list of our recent book reviews is actually overdue because we didn’t share them in May, so this is our May and June list.
Grace is done with college. That means she is back to sharing more book reviews. When we started this site Grace was reading well over one hundred books a year.
Then college took over, especially the last two years, and her reading slowed down. I know that she is happy to be back to reading now that college is over and I am happy to have her writing more reviews again.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. A fun mystery set in England.
The Last Dance of the Debutante. Historical fiction set in England after WWII. I loved this one.

The Happiest Man on Earth. A great memoir from someone who lived through so much horror.

The Beauty of Dusk. A memoir about losing sight.
Isaac’s Storm. I will read just about anything Erik Larson writes and this one was just as good as the other books by him that I have read.
