August Reads and Reviews
I had another up and down month of books! On one hand, I had what might be my favorite book of the year so far, and on the other I had some duds and one that I gave up on. Let's see what I read- and please leave suggestions on some fun fall books I can read the next few months!
Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
Mean Baby by Selma Blair
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
Hello Stranger by Katherine Center - Another winner for me by Katherine Center! I liked the premise of this- a portrait artist has temporary facial blindness during the biggest competition of her life. Lots of hijinks ensue, and I loved following along and the twist at the end.
Happy Place by Emily Henry - For some reason I mostly only read Emily Henry books by audiobook, and this one is unfortunately my least favorite of hers. I didn't like any of the characters, and thought the whole plot was frustrating. Also, I think I'm tired of rich kids whining about losing their free beach or lake house that they've had access to for years...so this one overall was a miss for me.
The Talented Miss Farwell by Emily Gray Tedrowe - This was a book club pick, and it just dragged on for me! I liked the first part, but after a while it just got so slow that I gave it up. Only two people in my club finished the book, so it definitely wasn't a popular pick.
