Recommended Summer Reads

If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for a good book to wile away the summer hours. I've read several recently that I'd recommend: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay,The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, and Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson.
