Today I’m participating in #SixForSunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot. The topic for this week is “set somewhere warm.”
Without further ado, let’s get into it! 🌞
1) People We Meet on Vacation
I just finished reading People We Meet on Vacation and I’m so glad it lived up to the hype. It’s about Poppy and Alex, best friends who vacation together every summer until one trip ruins everything. They visit some places on my bucket list with warm weather, like Greece and Italy.
2) A Room Called Earth
A Room Called Earth is the first book I reviewed this year and it takes place in Australia, which is another one of my dream vacation places. It takes place over 24 hours and follows a nameless woman who goes to a party. I stumbled upon it at my library and I’m glad I did because it was refreshing and funny!
3) The Heatwave
How could I not mention The Heatwave? It was my first five star read of the year and it takes place in France during a very hot summer. It’s a psychological thriller about a mother and her two daughters that I can’t recommend enough times.
4) Quiet in Her Bones
Quiet in Her Bones was another five star read for me. It’s a mystery/thriller set in New Zealand that will give you goosebumps.
5) A Thousand Ships
A Thousand Ships takes place in Greece and is the retelling of the Trojan War from the women’s perspective. I don’t normally read mythology but I was curious about this and ended up liking it.
6) Half of A Yellow Sun
Set in Nigeria, Half of A Yellow is a story about the Biafra-Nigeria civil war that I highly recommend to fans of historical fiction.
