As summer is winding down, I am looking forward to all things FALL! Fall is my favorite season and in my book begins on September 1st… even if it is still 80 degrees outside…
Today I am talking about the books I read & what I blogged in August…
With the return to some normalcy to our lives, August flew by in a whirlwind. Here in Ohio, sports were allowed to resume with restrictions, so I am back chauffeuring my children all around town. My son is playing football and my daughter is doing cheerleading. While nothing is without risk these days, we decided that it was important for them to be able to participate in some extracurricular activities since they will not be attending in-person school for the first semester of the school year.
Speaking of online schooling, my kids will be starting school on September 8th. We are nervous and a bit anxious to begin.
August ended up being the month where I read the fewest number of books thus far in 2020. Even though I didn’t read as many books as normal, I’m not upset about it since I loved everything I read.
» Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
I adored Noah’s memoir about growing up in South Africa under Apartheid. You can read my mini review here ⇒ Born A Crime by Trevor Noah
» Beach Read by Emily Henry
I’ve read a few of Emily Henry’s YA books, so I was curious to see how she tackled adult romance. Henry is queen of the slow burn romance. I’m happy to see all the attention this book is getting.
» American Street by Ibi Zobi
This was my first time reading an Ibi Zoboi book, but it definitely won’t be the last. This is a YA contemporary story with a touch of magic realism.
» A Wolf for a Spell by Karah Sutton
This was a delightful MG fantasy inspired by Russian folklore. You can read my mini review here ⇒ Mini Book Reivews: August 2020 – Part 3
» The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart
A new favorite MG contemporary! The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise is a journey story that includes a cast of lovable & quirky characters. You can read my mini review here ⇒ Mini Book Reivews: August 2020 – Part 3
» Anxious People by Fredrik Bachman
I am a big Backman fan, so I was very excited to be approved for an eARC. If you’ve enjoyed his other books, you’ll adore this one too.
» Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
I really enjoyed this multi-generational family narrative about mental illness, love, addiction, and forgiveness. If you enjoyed this one, I’d recommend The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne.
