I should have estimated my reading pace a little better – I am already 80% done with my Goodreads reading challenge for this year and just halfway through the year. I’ve never really tracked my reading, so I had no idea. I’ll just have to make it a real challenge next year.
The last two books I read were more serious and both a little depressing, so I was in need of a good, light-hearted summer read. My friend just so happened to give me The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty when she finished it. We had read another of Moriarty’s books for book club earlier this year and loved it, so I jumped right into it. Although it is not necessarily light-hearted, it was a good summer read. Numerous families and characters, dealing with different issues, whose lives intertwine. Murder, loss, infidelity, societal expectations – just some of the things you’ll find in this book. I read it in about a week and a half. Quick, easy, entertaining read. Perfect for the pool, beach, or summer travel. And I’ve heard from numerous people that all of Moriarty’s books are great, so really you can’t go wrong!
