It’s time to look back at August!  I read more pages this month than the previous ones, but I read one less book than in July.  There were so many books to love…so it was hard to choose favorites. 

Check in at The Book Date, to see what others have read and enjoyed.

Here are my favorites, despite how difficult it was to choose:

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kathryn, and I wasn’t surprised about the number of mystery/thrillers that I read, either! I was a little surprised that there were a few others from the more mainstream genres.

      I hope you enjoy Karin Slaughter…this book definitely held me hostage throughout, making the pages speed by. I hardly noticed that there were 528 pages!
