June Books

This month was CRAZY. Mostly I was just trying to survive until the end of the school year, so I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done. However, one of these books I read in two days (yay summer vacation) so I’m pretty impressed with myself for that.

The Fairy Tale Girl by Susan Branch

Susan Branch is one of my favorite authors. She writes mostly lifestyle and cookbooks, but she has also written three books about her life. These are my favorite, and I read two of them this month. The Fairy Tale Girl is the first book which details her 20s into her 30s when she lived in California, got married, and then divorced. Her books are homemade – they are written in her own handwriting and she has painted illustrations as well. I think her books are just beautiful!

Martha’s Vineyard: Isle of Dreams by Susan Branch

This is Susan’s second book about her life in which she up and moves from California to Martha’s Vineyard and buys a house by herself. It also follows her as she writes her first book and has it published. Susan Branch also writes a wonderful blog that you can find here if you are interested!

Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley

This was a book that I randomly picked out at the library because I thought the cover was cute. Then I ended up reading it in just two days! This was mostly because I started it on June 29 and had to finish it by June 30 for it to count for my June books. But I did it! This book is about sisters living in opposite ends of the world who decide to start writing letters and mailing them back and forth talking about their respective lives. Then, the letters accidentally get published and the whole world knows about their secrets! A fun and easy read!
