Books: Summer Reading List

Like I promised yesterday, here is round 4 of my Summer Reading List. If you're wondering where I'm getting my recommendations, I'd like to thank my good friends Barnes & Noble. Like I've said before, I am open to suggestions and recommendations.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
The annual Trivia Night at Pirriwee School had always been a peaceful affair, but this year was different. First, there was a riot; then a parent was found dead; and before long, police investigators began piecing together clues of murder. Behind the apparent homicide are the intertwined stories of three women; their husbands and children; their ex-husbands and their new wives. This new novel by Liane Moriarty (The Husband's Secret; What Alice Forgot) unlocks secrets hidden deep in suburbia.

Outlander by Diane Gabaldon 
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
