Whatcha Been Reading?

Everybody needs a good book recommendation. And here are three books that I've read recently, and recommend to all of you.

Flying Soup by Bobby Adair
What happens when you’re out for an innocent bike ride, and an anonymous car throws a can of soup out the window and nearly hits you with it? That’s where Christian Trist finds himself. And since he is a young techy, he and his friends decide to start a website dedicated to exposing the anonymous jerks in life. You know the people who treat you with no respect just because you don’t know them. The book takes a humorous look at how scandals involving politicians and organized religion evolve. The key words here are humorous. The writer is making fun of all of the individuals involved in these scandals. So if you read the book don’t get offended by some of the stereotypes of televangelists, and politicians. Definitely check this book out.

The Island of Lote by Emily Kinney
This book is about a young girl named Milo. Milo is quite unhappy living in her new building. She is bullied, and her parents really don’t understand her. So she finds a way to get away from her problems. She’ll attend summer camp in Australia, but there is a little problem on the way there. There is a plane wreck, and Milo is stranded on a desert island that nobody knows about. But she isn’t alone. Milo soon finds herself having to navigate through new and scary relationships. And she confronts a few fears of hers. In the book she learns how to trust, love, and be at ease with herself. I really like this book. Milo is a young spunky girl with lots of survival skills, and she isn’t afraid to confront some of the issues in her life so that she can become a better person. In my opinion this is a great book for tween and teen girls.

Water’s End by Jessica Deforest
Anne is a newly married woman, who finds that marriage isn’t what she thought it would be. Her husband ignores her completely, and when she tells him she wants to leave he does a few things that disturb her. Then she sees David. He’s beautiful, and he’s sensitive. When Anne decides to divorce her husband Joe, David and she fall in love. But somehow the relationship doesn’t work out right. And Anne spends the rest of her life wondering whatever happened to her true love David. Will she ever find him again? This is a romance that covers the span of a woman’s life. It’s different than many romances in that it shows how the definition of romance can change with age. Romance fans will definitely enjoy this book.
Let me know what you’ve been reading.
