Welcome to September…and goodbye to August.  What a great month, and it seemed to fly by.  Head on over to Book Date, to link up with others and their wrap-up posts.

My August fell into these genres:

Mystery/Thrillers – 7

Contemporary Fiction – 3

Literary Fiction – 2

Historical Fiction – 1

Nonfiction – 1


This month, I read 4 books with more than 400 pages.

My two favorites this past month…and it was hard to choose, as there were so many good ones.

What did your August look like?



  1. Looks like you had a good month of reading! I just finished Not Her Daughter – an interesting premise (that I found improbable in its resolution) but I enjoyed reading just to find out how it all worked out in the end.

  2. Your August looks fantastic. I see the mystery/thrillers are totally balanced out by the other genres! I intend reading Clock Dance at some point, no doubt further down the track but I do have it now on my shelf!!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kathryn, and I hope you do enjoy Clock Dance at some point.

      After all my thrillers, I’ve started the new month with contemporary fiction…and I’m loving a book by Kristan Higgins: Now That You Mention It. I know you’ve read it…right?
