Adult Summer Reading Book Reviews

China Rich Girlfiend

by Kevin Kwan

A book review by patron, Aimee Shaffer.


The second installment in Kwan's series is a fun, entertaining summer read and nothing more. I can't help but wonder if people really live and behave that way? But regardless, if you're looking for something to read this summer while sitting by the pool, then I highly recommend it. However, if you're wanting something deeper and thought-provoking, then not so much.

Every Note Played

by Lisa Genova

A book review by patron, Aimee Shaffer.


Kudos to Lisa Genova for making me feel every possible emotion. This book was amazing. So much so that I came close to reading it in one sitting. The way she captures each character’s inner workings through her beautiful prose without alienating the reader by being too flowery is captivating to this reader. I can’t recommend this book enough.

Look Alive Twenty-Five

by Janet Evanovich

A book review by patron, Aimee Shaffer.


I used to enjoy these books. They made me laugh and were a fun summer read. However, they’ve gotten so bad I can’t imagine there being a #26. They are the same over and over. And over. I can’t recommend this book at all. Pure drivel.
