Not sure what I did in August but it appears it did not include heaps of reading. Just four books read last month and these are they:
50. Black Roses - Jane Thynne
51. Superfluous Women - Carola Dunn
52. The Case of the Gilded Fly - Edmund Crispin
53. The Grave Tattoo - Val McDermid
All four were fiction and crime yarns which probably indicates I was looking for escapism as opposed to serious reading. I did read one non-fiction through August, Blue River, Black Sea by Andrew Eames, but have only just finished it so that will go on the books for September list. Anyway, all four of these books were very good, equally 'very good', so I can't really choose a favourite although I must say I did really enjoy this:
These are the two books I'm about to start:
It now being September (yaaay!) I'm in the mood for something a bit Gothicky and I'm hoping Melmoth will fit the bill. I enjoyed Sarah Perry's The Essex Serpent very much at my second attempt to read it. (Couldn't get on with it on the first try.) And this one sounds pretty good too.
And here's a 3000 piece jigsaw puzzle I did in August, which probably partly explains why in June and July I read 9 books, and in August, 4.
Happy autumn reading... I do love September.
