Airframe by Michael Crichton: Exactly the right book for a holiday, Michael Crichton does not disappoint. The story is simple and follows Crichton’s pattern. Still it has enough “meat” to keep me going and especially interested. The background information about the airline industry/airplane manufacturing was interesting and well researched. In light of the current accidents and disappearances of planes well worth reading. Also worth reading if you are not into airplanes.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton: A long and enjoyable read about three generations of women and their stories. It starts in Australia but ends in Cornwall and there is also a love story in between. Of course it is all connected and there is a secret but everything is kept light and fluffy. Just the right thing while you are on vacation. Or even only for a rainy weekend.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: I didn’t see that coming. It started slow and I was not sure if I liked the main character at all. But then there were subtle shifts and all of a sudden I rooted for her. I just wanted her to remember, so I would know too what happened. I loved how the story developed, how it kept the end open, it never let up the suspense! Great read!
Landline by Rainbow Rowell: I almost read it in one go which is pretty great considering I am moving constantly and spent the last days kayaking and tubing. The book was great, I just loved the characters, loved how the story went back and forth between now and then. This is the first adult book from the author and I can’t complain I loved her YA books Eleanor and Park; Fangirl). She is an amazing writer and the book just draws you in. Excellent read!
