Well I need three! All different but all five star reads from me.


Looking forward to reading in August

Some of what I have planned.

Main Reading Goals for August…

  • include some library books in my reading
  • make a dent in some of the books I’ve bought this year
  • No review books allowed!
  • Give up on Lonesome Dove, I never picked it up in July, will put it aside for now – maybe forever.

Incoming Books for July


I am buying all the Kindle books available of Lucilla Andrews – a nostalgic author whose books are out of print but they are publishing them on Kindle and I want them all!

  1. Wow, what a great reading month you had! I have heard really great things about several of the books you read – looks like you had a nice variety and lots of quality.

    BTW, I don’t know about the others, but Ask Again, Yes is another Big Book – you can add its review to the review links list on the challenge page – you are doing really well on the challenge this summer (winter!).

  2. 14 books is amazing! The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and The Bookshop on the Shore are high on my list. Right now I’m working on the longest book of the year for me–The Black Witch at 600 pages.


  3. Wow, 14 books! I’ve read two of the ones you read: Bookish Life of Nina Hill and Things You Save in a Fire. That Jenny Colgan book looks good, and I also want to read the Wendy Wax.

    I’ll be watching for your thoughts on the Jaclyn Moriarty.

    Enjoy August!

    1. Will be interesting to read Jaclyn Moriarty, I never realised there were three sisters – all who write books! I loved Things You Save in a Fire. Now loving Under Currents.
