My reading list for the month of July.
Make Me Love You (Hart’s Ridge #1) by Elizabeth Bright.
I got this book from NetGalley for review. I haven’t read any other works by this author, but I found the description of this novel very interesting. The story focuses on Emma Andrews and her ex-best friend Eli Carter. Seven years ago, Eli betrayed Emma, and she hasn’t forgiven him. Things heat up when both of them are running to be the Mayor of Hart’s Ridge. I haven’t started reading this book yet, but I enjoy the second chance romance type of stories.
A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway.
I am fond of Ernest Hemingway’s writing. I haven’t read all of them yet, but I plan to. I read A Farewell to Arms almost six years back. It is a historical fiction novel, set during the course of World War I. The book is based on some of Hemingway’s personal experiences during World War. This book tells the story of an American ambulance driver on the front in Italy, Henry, who falls in love with a beautiful English nurse Catherine.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
I read A Tale of Two Cities a few months back. Since I liked that novel, I thought I’ll read another one. A Christmas Carol is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser. During Christmas time, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his business partner, Jacob Marley. Jacob tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three ghosts – the Ghost of the Christmas Past, the Ghost of the Christmas Present, and the Ghost of the Christmas yet to come. The story is divided into five ‘staves’ like chapters. I just finished the first stave, and so far, it is interesting. It is not a slow start, so that’s keeping me engaged.
