“Whit heard her. Heard her embarrassment. Her pain. Felt it like it was his own. He was going to find this baron and f*cking garrote him. He‘d bring her the man‘s undeserving head.”

Ha! I see that nod to your favorite IAD love token Sarah! This wrap up is about a week late, but there you go! And my review post of this lovely gem is in the near future. For now, I hope you enjoyed this quote as much as I did!😘

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love Patricia Briggs! 5mo
CoffeeK8 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa me too, but somehow I neglected Alpha & Omega until this summer, and it was so nice to have all the books to read at once 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CoffeeK8 Oh, what a great find then! I bet that made for a fun summer! 5mo

Leah on the Offbeat wins #BestOfAugust for me! Though it was a close race with Fangirl. I can‘t believe it‘s taken me so long to get around to these wonderful books, but I‘m glad I finally did!

I‘ve read 17 books in August, more than I ever read in one month before.

Among them were 8 Man Booker longlisted books, some of which I gave 4 stars. These two however are my favorites this month (4.5 stars). Both are so original and surprising!
So, a very good reading month, despite the fact that there were no 5 stars for me!

Kalalalatja Well done you! You might even be able to finish another book tomorrow 😉 1y
BarbaraBB No I won‘t. I‘m very slowly going through 1y
merelybookish I'm intrigued by the tagged book! 1y

August brought pretty meager reading - this was probably the busiest month of 2017! I worked into nights, we traveled to see the eclipse, my daughter moved out to the dorms, my other started school...

What I read was good (except for AFAR, which at least was pretty). Overall I enjoyed them but I am hoping for more in September!

Gezemice @kspenmoll I live in central Illnois, we drove to St Louis and we found a small state park nearby tgat was in the zone. It was in Robertsville, Missouri. We had no clouds and we found shade, too! 2y
Gezemice @RealBooks4ever It is good but no rush! My reading challenge required a steampunk novel so I bumped it up on the TBR. (edited) 2y
kspenmoll So happy for you! We initially had clouds but parted in time- near Grand Island of rt 80. 2y
Gezemice @kspenmoll Glad to hear you could see the main act! It was amazing. 2y

Total of books read: 23
YA titles: 4
Adult: 7
GN/Comics: 11 (Some really long ones.)

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie
post image

A bit late with my #bestofaugust/end-of-month roundup... but here it is! I couldn't decide on my favorite--I had so much fun re-reading with #LOTRchapteraday AND introducing myself to Agatha Christie for the first time. I didn't read as many from the TBR this month, though--gotta get cracking for #LitsyAtoZ if I'm gonna finish by the end of the year!

monkeygirlsmama I still haven't done my August tally yet. 🤦🏻‍♂️ 2y
BarbaraJean @DebinHawaii Thanks! @Lindy Me too! I checked it out because the title was hilarious... but found the artwork beautiful, and was impressed by the message of the story. 2y
Lindy @BarbaraJean Yes, surprisingly haunting for something so whimsical on the surface. 2y
