Book Review and Giveaway: Mystic Summer by Hannah McKinnon


Maggie Griffin's comfortable life in Boston, with a challenging teaching job, a lifelong friend as roommate and a handsome boyfriend is starting to unravel. A potential layoff, her friend's upcoming wedding and the boyfriend's new coworker all come together to throw things a bit off-kilter. Then a trip home to Mystic, Connecticut, to help her friend with wedding plans brings her ex-boyfriend, Cameron, into the picture. It certainly makes for an interesting summer.

Mystic Summer by Hannah McKinnon is a wonderful summer read. It made me feel like summer was already here. I enjoyed following Maggie as she makes her way through many changes on a path to a more fulfilling life. While there is a bit of a romantic storyline, it's more about Maggie's relationships with friends and family, and her quest to figure out what she wants out of her future.

This was an easy, light read but definitely engaging and it even dealt with some serious topics along the way. I found the dichotomy of Maggie's life view and her sister's to be engrossing, as her sister is married with some very challenging kids, and Maggie is just in the dating phase of life. Each seems to be envious of the other, yet they also recognize the challenges that each face in their phase of life as well.

If you're looking for a great summer read, I highly recommend Mystic Summer.

  1. I am always on the lookout for books about sisters. Since I have three of them, I love reading about the way they relate to each other and support each other through the tough moments of life. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
