Reading Recap

 I had a long list of books that I was hoping to read over the summer and I failed. Terribly. I read two. Two, books. I'm so disappointed in myself. I'm really hoping that as I get into my groove with school starting up, I can read more. I truly enjoy it and still have that long list of books.

Once, a long time ago, I walked down a night-darkened road called Firefly Lane, all alone, on the worst night of my life, and I found a kindred spirit. That was our beginning. More than thirty years ago. TullyandKate. You and me against the world. Best friends forever. But stories end, don’t they? You lose the people you love and you have to find a way to go on. . . .

If you read Fire Fly Lane, I loved this book. It continues the story about Tully and Kate into their adult lives. It paints the picture of how two friends, who are living very different lives go through ups and downs of friendship and life, together. I cried and was hoping for a different ending although I knew all along what the ending was going to be. It tells the heartbreak of Tully's relationship with her mother and tragedy brings them back together. Although, it was sad, it was wonderful to watch all the relationships develop throughout the book and over the lives of the characters.

 A female apothecary secretly dispenses poisons to liberate women from the men who have wronged them—setting three lives across centuries on a dangerous collision course. Rule #1: The poison must never be used to harm another woman.
Rule #2: The names of the murderer and her victim must be recorded in the apothecary’s register.

This was a book club book and I was so skeptical about reading it but once I got past the first couple chapters, I couldn't put it down. The woman takes over the apothecary from her mother and after being betrayed by a man, she begins to use the medicine to get revenge. All goes well until a twelve year old girl comes for potion and then a relationship forms. Then, in the present day, a woman spends her anniversary in London and stumbles upon an apothecary jar and sets out on a mission to find the history behind it. Two worlds come together.

I'm currently reading Viper Pilot and I'm hoping to read a couple more books this month! Happy Thursday and happy reading, friends!
