In today’s blog post I’m sharing what I read this month. Interested in finding out what I’m reading in real time? Follow me on Instagram.
While there’s still a few months before Christmas arrives, I finished reading the fourth and final book in the Winter Street series by Elin Hilderbrand. Winter Solstice (affiliate link) wraps up the story of one family in Nantucket. Each book picks up with the family during Christmas over the course of several years. If you enjoy Elin’s writing, I would recommend these books. She’s so good at creating characters that I want to read about.
The Children on the Hill
I’m a huge fan of Jennifer McMahon’s book, and I really enjoyed reading this one too. The Children on the Hill (affiliate link) takes place on the grounds of a psychiatric hospital. Three teens/kids are the main characters – a brother, a sister, and a mysterious new girl who comes to live with them and their grandmother, who also works at the hospital. There are lots of twists and turns throughout the book as the three kids learn the truth about themselves and each other. This was one of those books that was hard to put down. I highly recommend it if you like psychological thrillers.
The Summer Place
I’ve liked everything that I’ve read from Jennifer Weiner, and I’m happy to say that this one was great too. The Summer Place (affiliate link) is a book about family. It takes place a year into the pandemic, which I actually enjoyed. Our world has changed so much in the last two and a half years, it was nice to see that reflected in The Summer Place. There are lots of connections between the members of the extended family which finally become clear at the end of the book.
The House Across the Lake
Riley Sager is another author that I really like. I’ve read all of his previous books, so when this one was released I knew that I had to read it too. The House Across the Lake (affiliate link) takes place exactly where you think it would – on a lake. There are only a few houses on this secluded late in New England, one of which is owned by an up and coming tech CEO and his model wife. The house across the lake from theirs is owned by the family of a Broadway actress who has been sent there to get her life together. Between getting fired from her last show because of her drinking to embarrassing herself with the paparazzi, her mom wants her to figure her life out before she gets anymore unflattering headlines written about herself. I definitely didn’t see the end coming with this one!
