The Grave Tattoo | Val McDermid
post image

Difficult to choose my favourite book in #August for #12Booksof2023 as I read the next books in a lot of my favourite series that all got five stars, but going for The Grave Tattoo (a non-series read). This book has everything mystery, intrigue, compassion and a theory for what happened to Fletcher Christian of Mutiny on the Bounty fame. Loved both the past and modern time line and strongly recommend this, which I couldn‘t put down.

Andrew65 Think August was my best reading month of the year, and also notable mentions for An Evil Mind and Hunting Evil by Chris Carter, Lustrum by Robert Harris (book 2 in the Cicero trilogy), The Whisper of Sorrows and The Big Man Upstairs by JD Kirk, and The Wrexham Killings by Simon McCleave.

Also Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel.

All highly recommended.

#August ‘s favorite has to be this one! I loved it - loved the audio, loved the storyline, which was not saccharine sweet romance. I laughed, I cried…it was just so good! #12BooksOf2023

Andrew65 This has had a lot of nominations. 6mo
Librarybelle @Andrew65 Well deserved! 6mo

An Evil Heart: A Novel | Linda Castillo

#12Booksof2023 #August

August was not a great month for me, so I read fewer books. My top read happens to be the 15th book in Castillo‘s Kate Burkholder series. Kate, formerly Amish, is police chief in Painters Mill, Ohio and in this one investigates the brutal death of a young Amish man. I recommend starting the series from the beginning.

Whew! Just finished my #TitlesAndTunes #August pick for #TheWorldIsMyOyster & really enjoyed in—although it certainly made my claustrophobia spike with the author‘s descriptions of the dangerous places she explored as a cave diver. I alternated between the e-book & audiobook & especially enjoyed hearing the author reading her own words. There were a couple of draggy parts but overall this was an interesting & engaging read.👍👍

Cinfhen Fantastic!! I have the audio so glad to hear it‘s a pick 🩵 10mo
BarbaraBB Cave diving… I am so fascinated by it because it seems one of the most scary things to do! 10mo

Quote from tagged book attributed to L.M. Montgomery. Lovely small book of essays, poems, & illustrations. The essay by the author, “ I‘d Rather Be Reading, The Autobiography of a Bookworm”, reminded me of the gift of growing up being read to & surrounded by books. #rushathon #August

I completely forgot to post my goals for the #Rushathon August readathon. I don‘t usually like to set hour goals, so we‘ll go with these three simple ones:

-Read every day
-Keep up with all buddy reads & challenges
-Finish at least 16 books this month
-Read 2 ARCs & at least 6 books from series for #SeriesLove2023

I‘ll tag my #August TBR post from earlier

DieAReader Love it! Enjoy❤️‍🔥📚🤓 11mo
Andrew65 Great goals! 😍 11mo
