And the most riveting fiction for this month... I borrowed this one from the library. I just might have to buy it when it comes out in paperback.

Looking Forward to Reading in August...

I am looking forward to reading some books I have stockpiled recently! All now my own books. No review books for August. I carefully managed that. See a few of the purchased ones below. Some of them will be read for sure!

As some of you may know I am moving to Wordpress.com so next month this link up will be at my new address! I will leave a link here on this blog so that you can find me. Do keep joining up. Next month I intend doing a giveaway for those who link to this post, not because I have a new address but it is my birthday month and I am celebrating with... books!

So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. You had a great month for books! I want to read Karen White's book! Happy August!

  2. I haven’t even counted how many books I’ve read this month. I’m kind of behind with everything. It looks like you got a lot of reading done and read some good books. Happy August!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. How is it August!!! LOL Great month I've read four of yours and agree with the Karen White but I've never been disappointed with her ever. I'm hoping to snatch it in audio

  4. I read SUgarhouse Blues this month and LOVED it! A great series. Now have to wait for the next.
    I will be checking out your top reads for sure.

  5. I also read 12! I hope to finally read Dreams of Falling in August. Enjoy your new month.

  6. Congrats on finishing 12 books! That's a lot. I love how you keep track of the genres and formats. :)

  7. That was a lovely reading collection of books! I only managed to read 10 books this month. I am reading at a snail’s pace!

  8. I have A Month of Sundays on my tbr.

  9. The Choice sounds like a book my book club would adore! Glad to hear you loved it so much, i'll look into it for them. Also I hope your move to WP goes smoothly. It's stressful while a move is in action but looking back it seems like it was relatively easy. :) Happy reading in August too.

  10. You had a great month of reading! Hope your move to Wordpress goes smoothly :)

  11. Hope your August is full of just as any stellar books!

  12. Wow, 12 books - that's a great reading month! Sounds like you read some good ones - that memoir sounds fascinating.

    Hope you are enjoying your August books now, too!

    Thanks for hosting the link-up!
