August Monthly Motif Check In {Genre Jumble}

The July theme for the 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge is Genre Jumble. Pick a book that is from a genre that you don’t normally read from. Here’s a look at what Tanya and I have picked to read…

Kim – So the genre that I almost always avoid like the plague would be contemporary. But I also haven’t read that much horror even though I love paranormal, thriller, mystery, etc. So… I looked at both genres and in the end I picked Please Ignore Vera Dietz, A.S. King which is a contemporary read that’s supposed to be guaranteed to break my heart.

Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything. So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name?

Tanya – Like Kim, I don’t normally read Contemporary books so I’m going to choose a book that’s been getting a lot of buzz lately, Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty.

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong? Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?
