Back in the game...

I will be the first to admit that I went through a huge reading slump this winter.  I was exhausted, tired and trying really hard to keep up with my Internet friends / real friends and reading took a biiiiig backseat.  I officially was done working for the year on June 1st.  I've read about 4 1/2 books since then and been to the library about 4 times.  I keep adding books to my TBR list, I'm in 2 book clubs, I have two books to read for reviews coming up.. Baby, I'm back!

Here are some books that I've recently added to my To Read List...

The Whipping Club by Deborah Henry - This book takes place in Ireland in the 1950/1960s and includes an unwed Catholic mother who has to give up her babe and then years later tries to reclaim him.  Abuse, secrets and more.. 

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn  - On her 5th wedding anniversary, Amy disappears.  Her husband Nick is an immediate suspect and there are lots of twists and turns.  I've heard REALLY great things about this one!

Only One Life  by Sara Blaedel - She is a writer from Denmark who apparently has an amazing series featuring Inspector Louise Rick.  We all know how I feel about series! ;)  Both book blurbs I read about the series had me already checking to see if my library has it!

The Paris Detective by Gerald Jay - Former French intelligence officers hire a German hit man to kill an American industrialist but things go amok and he kills not only the American but his wife and their friends.  A local detective, formerly of Paris is put in charge and he along with an American DA (daughter of some of the victims) dig into the case. 

Also, I've picked up the beginning books of the Alex Delaware series by Johnathon Kellerman, the beginning of the Dexter series by Jeff Lindsay and plan on continuing the Lisa Gardner series.

What is on your summer to read list?
