Considering my current uni workload and a reading slump I’m surprised I managed to read six books in August. It’s not a huge number of course, but I’m quite happy with it and most of those books were pretty great reads.
The News Where You Are by Catherine O’Flynn is her second novel and one I enjoyed immensely. Her first, What Was Lost, will remain my favorite though.
The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y. S. Lee was sadly not what I expected, but I think that’s all my fault and I know a lot of people enjoyed this one.
DreadfulWater Shows Up was a great read and I did not regret taking a break from British cosy crime. Hope there’ll be a book 2 soon!
Rack, Ruin and Murder is of course a British cosy, I’m still trying to figure out how much the cover art of these books influences me 😀 This one is the second book in her new Campbell and Carter series and I like it much more than the Mitchell and Markby books.
The Strange Case of the Composer and his Judge I wrote about here. And then when the reading slump hit and I was feeling meh about every book, Wodehouse to the rescue. Something Fresh or Something New is the first in the Blandings Castle series and I can tell the Threepwoods and I are going to be great friends.
Hope everyone had a great August, any plans for September? I know I will be reading (or am currently reading) Frenchman’s Creek for Jo’s readalong.
