Bannockburn: The Battle for a Nation by Alistair Moffat: Bannockburn is not just any battle, it is the battle for the survival of the Scottish nation. This small booklet details everything there is to know about this one battle. What went before and what happened after. Everything that went into the battle planning as well as the luck which was on the Scottish side. Or rather the incompetence on the English side which helped the Scots enormously. Sometimes all you need is a disagreeing enemy.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I loved Daisy Jones and the Six from TJR. This one about the seven husbands was a little more complicated. While the story is straight forward, it’s the subject that’s complicated. Love, in all its forms, is beautiful. But what if the world is not ready for the love you have to give? I really enjoyed the book, if though a tad too long.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren: What a great chick lit for a change. I needed some lol moments and this one had more than one in it. The whole concept of the story was fantastic as was the chemistry between Olive and Ethan. Unfortunately some things couldn’t be explained away and made for some unbelievable story moments. Still, very entertaining and just the right book when you want to loose a couple of hours.
The Selection by Kiera Cass: The book has been since forever on my shelf, in the end though I am not totally sure if it was worth my time. It does read very fast though, so there is the entertainment factor. And isn’t that something every book should bring to the table? Entertainment? The love triangle of America, Maxon, and Aspen is kind of weird, but who cares as long as it is amusing. So despite my first impression, I am definitely going to read the next book in the series. Because of course it is a trilogy.
