June Wrap-Up

This was a rough month for me. I am happy that I did manage to finish two books. For those of you whom see these posts every month let me know if you like what I did this month verses in the past months.

Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

This book is about this a mother who  is a district attorney that works on child molesters cases. When something happens to her son, she does everything she thinks she can to help bring justice for her son.

Thoughts- A great story of family and roles being switched.

I gave this book 5 stars

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Rachel and Nicholas have been dating for a while now. Nicholas is invited to this big wedding back in his home country and decides to take Rachel with him. Once they get there things start to go crazy.

Thoughts- A great story with a family drama.  Amazing characters and great plot. Can’t wait to start the next one.

I gave this one 5 stars.

So, just to remind you, if you like this lay out better let me know. I kinda wanna get rid of the ranking in the categories (characters, setting, plot, writing and overall).
