Three Women by Lisa Taddeo has been everywhere. It was one of my most anticipated Summer releases and has been described as the book of the Summer. Words like “extraordinary” and “profound” keep popping up in reviews. My expectations were high. What follows is however an unpopular opinion. Perhaps, the only negative review I’ve seen around. But things are what they are. I didn’t enjoy this book. I didn’t think it was good. I am in the minority, though.
The Travelers by Regina Porter centers around the lives of two families that includes a New York attorney, an African American woman, a married sailor on an air craft carrier in Vietnam, an interracial and academic scholar couple, a lesbian starting life over again in 1970s’ Berlin, a black moving man stranded during a Thanksgiving storm in Portsmouth and two half-brothers who meet for the first time in their adulthood.
I love books (obviously), I’m Portuguese (honestly don’t know why I’m writing in English, I’m just going with the flow) and I have been writing book reviews for the last two years. I basically live in two completely different worlds: I love romance books and I also love my job as an Industrial Engineer.
Here's my Summer Reading List! These are the books that are coming out this Summer that I'll be diving into! Summer, for me, is a time of lighter and engrossing reads. Good prose and incredibly interesting characters are a must, as always! But I like my books to be more energetic and dynamic in this time of year!
