It's Monday: What are you reading? (6)
The Spellman Files (The Spellman's #1) by Lisa Lutz
The Spellman family spends as much time invading each other's privacy as they do investigating for their clients. This leads to many problems for Isabel when she makes an attempt at a normal life.
While extremely sporadic in form, jumping around in the timeline, it somehow still works - and is the better for it. It also made me very thankful for my family. For while reading about the Spellman's is great fun, being a part of that family wouldn't be. Recommended. (*****)
The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff
I read this book a few years ago and really enjoyed it (though I can't really remember much of it now). I'm reading it now for a book group, and I'm looking forward to delving back into it. Hopefully I'll have an awesome and inspiring review of this one for you soon.
My to-read pile is getting out of hand. Luckily my summer class is almost over so I'll hopefully be able to get around to all of these!
