Coffee & Books: June 2020

Well, when I posted last month's Coffee & Books, I was pretty certain that the world would be in a better place by June's.  But it doesn't seem to be so...  I pray that this post finds you all safe and healthy and with cup of coffee and a TBR ready to be added to.

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

The first sci-fi novel by a black woman.  It was also an eye-opening look at the antebellum South and an excellent read!

Average book by a great author.

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager 
Rating: 4 stars
I liked the atmosphere in this novel - the setting and the creepy, look-over-your-shoulder, lock-every-door-ness!  
Need a book? This was a fun thriller.  Riley Sager's The Last Time I Lied is amazing also.


The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre
Rating: 5 stars
This book was ahhh-mazing!! I love books about authors or books about books.  This was a really emotional, but fabulous read.
