The Call of the Wild | Jack London
post image

August was a good month! Three of these were rereads: Medium Raw, One Flew Over the Cuckoo‘s Nest, and my only 5-star for the month, The Call of the Wild.

#augustreads #augustwrapup

LauraBeth I read The Call Of The Wild and White Fang for Lit in college and loved it so much! I‘ve been wanting to re-visit them and haven‘t done it yet. I credit London with re-igniting my love of reading during a time when all I was reading were textbooks. 3mo
britt_brooke @LauraBeth I love hearing that! 💚 I still haven‘t read White Fang (though of course it‘s sitting on my shelf). I need to get to it. 3mo

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image

August was a weird month for me, as far as reading goes. I started so many books but by the 18th, I‘d finished a total of three. I didn‘t expect to finish too many others before the month ended but by some miracle, I did complete five more novels plus one children‘s picture book. You can hear all about my August reads here: https://youtu.be/BWgsrFfI08k

EadieB @Butterflyamore Again, a very nice video! I would be interested in the Riley Sager books you mentioned. I haven‘t read any but I have been seeing his books a lot on Litsy. I mentioned before that I also loved 13th Tale. I will try Educated as I‘ve seen a lot of that book too. Possibly will read Hollow Kingdom as that seems really different. Not sure about the fantasy House of Salt & Sorrows. Will not read your 3 stars as I agree with your reviews. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore A lot of the books from August are mystery series that are buddy reads. My favorite are: Sean Duffy by Adrian McKinty which are all 5 stars Reads from me and Maeve Kerrigan by Jane Casey are excellent books too. Mo Hayder‘s Jack Cafferty series is very dark and horrific so some of her books are questionable but there are some aspects of her books that I need to know what‘s going to happen. 3mo

EadieB Started some new series: Locked In by Kerry Wilkinson which I loved and will continue. A Great Deliverance Inspector Lynsey series by Elizabeth George was great too. Murder in Marais by Cara Black was a 4 star read. Not as good as the others I mentioned but still ok. Also Buddy reads of all the books written by Ken Follett and Maeve Binchy have been excellent. Not happy with Susanna Gregory‘s A Conspiracy of Violence which is historical mystery. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflysmore Excellent stand-alone is Say Nothing a history of The Troubles in Northern Ireland during the 70‘s and 80‘s which was most interesting. Lisa Jewell‘s I Found You was very good too. Crawdad‘s was good too but this book was over-hyped. Also read Fahrenheit 451 science fiction which was interesting and it‘s on the 1001 book list of books to read before you die. I‘ve read 236 of the 1001 books. Tiger Catcher by Paulina Simons was good. (edited) 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Tiger Catcher was a bit of a fantasy and magical romance (a NetGalley book). Recursion was science fiction and I wasn‘t sure about it but did give it 4 stars even though I don‘t really like science fiction but it ended up satisfying me in the end. So that‘s about it as I read 21 books which helped me catch up on my goal of 200 for this year. Mostly what I have in common with you is the psychological thrillers. 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB It sounds like you read a lot of great things! I definitely want to read more by Lisa Jewell since reading The Family Upstairs. I am planning to read Fahrenheit 451 at some point. I liked what I read by Bradbury as a teen but I need to reread those at some point, too, because I barely remember them now. I will have to find that list and see how many I‘ve actually read on it. I don‘t think my number will be as high as yours! 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I started with around 50 books before I heard of the list but worked at reading more a few years back. You can google and find a list but here‘s a video that may give you some info: https://youtu.be/fmfBUXNeyHc 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Thank you for sharing the link! I think my husband has read a lot more from the list than I have. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Yes, well you have plenty of time to catch up. I have found some very interesting ones and you can find some of my reviews on Goodreads as I am keeping track of my books there. I guess you will have to friend me at Eadie Burke. (edited) 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB I sent a friend request. 😊 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I found you by using the link you supplied at the top of your Litsy. So all you have to do is accept my friendship. Ok done! We are now friends on Goodreads. (edited) 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yay! I must have initially requested the wrong person. I wonder if she‘ll accept my request, too. Haha 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Oh that's funny! I do have a separate shelf for the 1001 books. (edited) 3mo

Lots of good books this past month. Mostly 3 or 4 star books for me with the exception of Into The Drowning Deep (5) and Depression & Other Magic Tricks (2).

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller
post image

My August reads. My favorites were: The Song of Achilles, Daisy Jones and the Six, It Ends With Us, Winter Garden, Verity, Stepsister, Without Merit, and An American Marriage.

I did not like The Graphic Novel of A Wrinkle in Time.

Second Time Around was just blah.

The Guest Book, I DNF.

And Percy Jackson was good, for an 8 year old.

A pretty good reading month for me! I didn‘t care for Crazy Rich Asians or Letters to a Young Poet, but everything else was 👌. My favorite was probably The Reckless Oath We Made. 💙

📚 4 physical; 🎧 3 audio; 📱 1 ebook

So how do people make those cool cover collages? Here are all the books I finished in August, but I already turned the tagged book back in to the library, and this wouldn't work if I'd read more than one ebook in the month, as I normally do. #AugustWrapUp #AugustReads #monthlyWrapUp

effani On the other hand, I guess if I still had All You Can Ever Know, it would break the theme of dragons/serpents on the cover that I have going in this picture. 3mo

I finished 12 books in August.
4 audiobooks
1 Graphic Novel

9 were new authors to me

Great reading month because it would be quicker to list books I didn‘t like than the ones I love!
