August Reading Wrap Up


📚 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗵𝗹𝘆 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝗽 𝗨𝗽 📚

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Audio for the gifted copies of  The Last to Vanish, Denial, and Please Join Us. Thank you NetGalley and Harper Collins Children’s Books for the digital review copy of The Weight of Blood. 

Where’d August go? I can’t believe it’s September already. August was a busy month. We spent the first week at the beach. After vacation, my daughter and I saw Hamilton at the Kennedy Center in DC. It was excellent! Then it was right back to work for me delivering books for library’s outreach program. On days I wasn’t working, I was visiting my mom. I did manage to read nine books for the month. 

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow- loved this character driven story of friendship and love. Shoutout to @rjs.readingnook for recommending this one! 

Remarkably Bright Creatures- if you haven’t read this one yet, I highly recommend listening to the audiobook. It’s fantastic! 

The Weight of Blood - a creepy updated YA take on Stephen King’s Carrie that deals with identity and race. This one’s out on September 6th. It’s a perfect read for spooky season! 

This Tender Land- loved this hero’s journey. Thanks to booksta pals @thereadingteapot & @rjs.readingnook for budding reading with me! 

Please Join Us - an invitation to join an exclusive professional women’s group to smash the patriarchy turns insidious 

Portrait of a Thief- I do enjoy a good heist story! 

The Last to Vanish - long buried secrets and lies in a small tourist town

Denial - set in a future affected by climate change, a journalist tracks down a former company executive who was set to stand trial for crimes against the climate

Nice Girls- a small town girl who reinvented herself in college returns home after getting expelled & investigates the disappearance of a former friend

That was my August. Tell me something about your August.
