Show Us Your Books: August 2020

I sat down to write this and could recall only three books. Thank God for Goodreads for tracking. Although I haven't always been entering stuff on there either. It also occurs to me that the favorite books so far this year post I meant to write in June and never did is probably no longer worth writing. What a year. 

Anyway this is what I read since the last linkup. I think. Who knows. Basically the two that were engrossing were very, and the rest I had to look up.

Happy happy birthday to my stepmom Carol today - I hope the weather is glorious and no one attempts to infringe on your beach space. Love you!

Engrossing Reads

28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand - I am not an Elin groupie but man I loved this book. I read it in 24 hours and the end had my throat working like crazy. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Pretty Things by Janelle Brown - I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I didn't know much about it, it was one I bought early on in quarantine to reach the ships with $35 orders threshold for some food items I couldn't find in any stores from Target online. I really liked it. I was sucked in, the pace was great, and the story was good. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Passed the Time Just Fine

What You Wish For by Katherine Center - Standard Katherine Center fare, which is a pretty solid, quick read that tugs at the heart. Sometimes when authors have a formula, I fight against starting their books or sinking into them even though I know I'll end up liking them. I don't know. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Cut to the Bone (Agent Sayer Altair #3) by Ellison Cooper - Another solid Sayer Altair novel. I will continue on with these series - Sayer and her assembled family and coworkers are great characters and the pace is always hustling. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Playing Nice by J.P. DelaneyThis book was stressful so it took me quite a few days to read it - it made me anxious, which I don't like that much combined with Corona Summer. Intense and psychological. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Not Worth It
Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey - Eh, this is a no for me dawg (do you hear Randy from American Idol?). I don't love kid narrators, and that definitely contributed here. The other thing is there's so much fucked up shit in this book that is just glossed over and that annoyed me. I don't know where I got this but it was on my kindle

The Promise by Teresa Driscoll - This was good until it wasn't. Round and round and like fake madness and bullshit. No. Kindle ebook

Did Not Finish
