Books Read in August: 19
Books Read for the Year: 119/150
Topical Books/Monthly Goal Books:
Fresh Air: the Holy Spirit for an Inspired Life (spiritual book). Nicely written, inspiring read.
The Big Fat Surprise (from the TBR pile). This was about the keto diet, and was full of interesting facts and studies. Food for thought.
Our Endless Numbered Days (cultural book). I have no words for this.
An Acceptable Time (classic). The final book in the Wrinkle in Time quintet. Loved it!
(Confession: normally I keep up with this as I read. This month I didn’t, so this will be…sparsely worded.)
The Dark Beneath the Ice. Creepy.
Someone I Used to Know. This was a fantastic book about a teenage girl who’s been raped, and how she and her family struggle to heal and work to combat rape culture.
#murdertrending. Odd book about a reality TV show where serial killers hunt down and kill convicted murders in flamboyant fashion.
That Secret You Keep. Good read.
How to Grow. Found this spiritual book compelling and conversational.
Brave Enough. Lovely read about a teenager who gets cancer, and how that changes her life as a dancer, as she gets to know a boy who survived cancer and drug abuse.
To Be Honest. I’m all about the body-positivity message of this book.
The Phantom Tree. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about time travel where the travel comes forward in time, but this is it. Enjoyed this.
7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I read this entire book without having any idea what was going on…but I was intrigued the whole time. A guy wakes up in the forest with no idea who he is, where he is, how he got there, or what he’s doing there…and the mystery only deepens from there.
The Matrimonial Advertisement (review forthcoming). Occasionally, I just love a good historical romance novel. Like this one! Fantastic characters, and a lot of things going on here.
Plague Land: Reborn. Sometimes I can get away with not reading the previous book in a serious, sometimes I can’t. This was one of those times.
The Outsider. I used to read everything Stephen King wrote, but it’s been years since I’ve read anything of his. No idea why. Found this creepy and fascinating, and full of fantastically-realized characters, as always.
The Question of God. A surprisingly interesting book about the differences between C.S. Lewis and Freud.
Communicating for Life.
Who’s Afraid of Post-modernism?
Linking up With Modern Mrs. Darcy for Quick Lit.
