September 2019 Book Dump

September swung between freezing in the morning to sweltering in the afternoon. It didn’t’ really matter how you dressed but you would have dressed incorrectly. With that being said, I was able to take full advantage of those sweltering afternoons and spent a significant amount of time reading in the park.

The books I read in September were:

  1. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
  2. The Other Americans by Lalia Lalami
  3. Roar by Cecelia Ahern

I’m lucky that I was able to get ahead over the summer because otherwise I’d be in some big trouble trying to hit my 50 books goal. As I write this, I’m at 39 books for the year.

Is anyone really behind or really ahead on their reading goals for 2019? Does anyone have any tricks for staying on top of it?

An Anonymous Girl

May’s book club pick was An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen.

Jessica is a makeup artist trying to make ends meet in New York City. By chance she heard about a study from a client. She shows up for the study and is sucked into the mysterious Dr. Shields study on morality and ethics.

Jessica is looking to make some extra money and finds herself sucked into Dr. Shields study. Each task she accomplishes is directly followed by a large financial reward. She quickly realizes that Dr. Shields is not giving her the full story and that she may be a pawn in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

This is the second book I’ve read by Hendricks and Pekkanen. They do a great job of setting up the reader to have the rug ripped out from under them. This is our May Book Club selection and I can’t wait to discuss it with everyone.
