From the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Mr. Goodbar the story of two women, a psychoanalyst and her patient who help each other through very different periods in their lives. When Dawn Henley, the beautiful, talented Barnard College freshman steps into psychoanalyst Dr. Lulu Shinefelds office, shes immediately intrigued. What could have driven this girl to such extreme levels of depression? Over the course of five years, Dawns bizarre and tortured childhood is drawn out, and both women are inevitably changed.

August stats! A great month, however, I wasn‘t great about ARCs. September goals are to get through my ARCs and post reviews on my blog.

I‘ve decided to go back to school this fall (why, I don‘t know...), and start back in September. I‘m trying to squeeze in a bunch of fun reading this month, so I‘m trying to get through as many of these as possible! I‘m currently finishing up Three Women and reading Preacher Vol 1. What do you recommend next?!

A couple of days late but these are my reading plans for August. Usually August is my best reading month.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Mine too. I'm out early weeding and watering. Then I retreat indoors to read. 4mo
Andrew65 @Crinoline_Laphroaig Sounds a great plan. 4mo
EadieB Looks like a great month! 4mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Hopefully. 4mo

August books to be read. I‘m really bad at this but I have so many physical books I must unload before December. Vote for what I should read first. Help me #DissolveThePile vote in the comments please. Highest vote gets read first.

EadieB @TrishB Locked In for sure this month. It's been on my list since you sent it to me. So August for sure! 4mo
TrishB Hope you enjoy it, it‘s one of those series that gets better and better. I love Jessica the MC. 4mo
EadieB @TrishB I know Andrew enjoyed it so I probably will too! 4mo
MrT Peter James ☑️ Mo Hayder ☑️ Clive Cussler ☑️ 4mo
EadieB @MrT Yes! And more! 4mo
Tove_Reads Looks good! Don‘t forget Quentins. 4mo
gradcat @EadieB Are we Reading any more Cara Black books? I‘ve got about ten pages left on the first one, and I really enjoyed it! You‘ve sure got a big stack TBR there...loads of great ones! 📚👍😊 4mo
EadieB @gradcat We usually read the next book by an author around the same time in the month so probably the end of August for Cara Black but if you are a slow reader, you can start earlier. I have to order the next one from the library that‘s why it‘s not in this pile. @Andrew65 @Tove_Reads 4mo
EadieB @Tove_Reads Thanks! Forgot what book was next. I‘ll have to order it from library. 4mo
gradcat @EadieB Thanks Eadie...that‘ll be perfect! I appreciate you helping me keep up—I feel like I‘m out of touch because I‘m missing things. ♥️ 4mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I can get hold of book 2 as an audiobook whilst we are away from home. @gradcat @Tove_Reads (edited) 4mo
EadieB @Andrew65 ok Sounds good! 4mo

Day 1: #ReadingResolutions #AugustTBR

Another ambitious TBR pile for me. I'm still reading Children of Blood and Bone & Area X from July TBR. Ha! Well, let's see if this month's TBR is doable.

I realized when I put my TBR books on my side table, I'm more disciplined to read them. So hopefully, it'll work again for me this month! 😁

JenP I'm the only one who didn't love Ministry of Utmost happiness. I did love the other two bookers though. 2y
Lola I read 4 of your 5 and loved them too-feeling good now about 2y

BarbaraBB @Lola Happy that you liked The Ministry too. How are you going with the longlist? 2y
Lola @BarbaraBB I haven't read Ministry yet....I meant that given the fact that I also loved 4 of your 5, I am now expecting to love Ministry as much as you did :) I'm not doing so well with the long list-I've only read two 😬I own 6 others so should bump those up. I feel especially attached to the prize this year as the chair of the 2017 judges is (Baroness) Lola (Young) 😛 2y
BarbaraBB @lola Ah, of course! I understand now! Looking forward to what you think of it - if you get to it! But you should, to please Baroness Lola 😉 2y
