One of the things I love most in the summer is going to the pool with the kids. But they usually last a lot longer in the unheated water than I do, so I usually get time to lounge in the sun with a good book. This year, I bought a couple of paperbacks so that I wouldn’t have to worry about my kindle getting too hot in the sun.
The Codex I started at the beginning of the summer and then took on vacation with us so I could finish it. It was a fun treasure hunt adventure story with great characters and a plot that kept me guessing what would happen next. I’ll definitely read more by this author.
I started Aftertime once we were back from vacation, but I haven’t gotten nearly enough pool days to really dig in. I’m still in the first few chapters of the book, but it’s already full of dystopian/post-apocalyptic awesomeness. I find this book so captivating I just want to keep reading it. I have no idea where the story is going to go but I don’t even care. I’ll happily go along for the ride!
