It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
It is now officially fall and the weather is starting to feel like it. I’m in jeans and a sweater already. But at least the heat isn’t on yet.
I was looking at the books I’ve read over the summer and realized just how many wonderful books I had read the past 3 months. I decided to pick my favourite 5 – a very difficult decision let me tell you. (Book info from Goodreads)
When Stars Collide by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
“It’s Mozart meets Monday Night Football as the temperamental soprano and stubborn jock embark on a nationwide tour promoting a luxury watch brand. Along the way, the combatants will engage in soul-searching and trash talk, backstage drama and, for sure, a quarterback pass. But they’ll also face trouble as threatening letters, haunting photographs, and a series of dangerous encounters complicate their lives.”
The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae by Stephanie Butland
“Ailsa Rae is learning how to live.
She’s only a few months past the heart transplant that – just in time – saved her life. Life should be a joyful adventure. But . . . Her relationship with her mother is at breaking point.
She knows she needs to find her father.
She’s missed so much that her friends have left her behind.
She’s felt so helpless for so long that she’s let polls on her blog make her decisions for her. And now she barely knows where to start on her own.”
The Forever Girl by Jill Shalvis
“A heartfelt story of family, forgiveness, and secrets that have the power to change the course of more than one life.
