Alison's May Reads
Updated: Jul 7
By The Feeder Books Contributor Alison Shea
My most exciting occurrence in May was a dentist appointment(!) so I had lots of reading time. I read 13 books and they were all pretty much amazing; it was hard to pick favorites.
Bob Iger’s book, The Ride of a Lifetime, was my winner this month; an absolute page turner and proof that good guys do finish first sometimes.
Other gems were Pretty as a Picture—a thriller with a quirky heroine; Big Summer—a summer book with a perfect heroine, and Sea Wife, a family on a boat for a year with a reluctant heroine. Nobody does dysfunctional adult family relationships better than Emma Straub in All Adults Here. Don’t miss Killers of the Flower Moon, a nonfiction book about the systematic murder of the Osage Indians that DiCaprio and Scorsese are turning into a movie. Finally, Valentine will break your heart; set in 1970s Texas and not enough has changed since then.
