August Reading Wrap Up
*This post contains Amazon affiliate links.
August was a productive reading month with fourteen total reads, and I am happy to report one five-star read and several four-star reads. Unfortunately, I also read four that were not my cup of tea. Find all my August reads listed below in order of Star Rating. Keep in mind that I normally recommend five- and four-star reads on the blog; three-star reads receive mixed reviews from me for various reasons; and two-star reads are books that were not for me (this month brought me four of these!). One star reads are usually shelved as DNF.
Most of my time this month was devoted to reading and I’m behind on writing reviews, so all of these have star ratings but not all have reviews.
My favorite read of the month is The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.
Did we read any of the same books?
