Monthly wrap-ups

August 2021 wrap-up


My wrap up for August



I was sick again during August 🙄 but there’s one thing to be said for having Asthma a bunch of times – I get to sit down and read a lot more I guess, even if I can’t breathe while I’m doing it 😒😅  So, I managed to fit in 19 books again!


My favourites for this month were (reviews can be found by clicking the pictures below):

Under the Whispering Door:   How can a book about death, and being unable to move on, be so sweet and funny?  I loved this one SO much, actually, even more than The House in the Cerulean Sea.   

The Night She Disappeared:   I haven’t read much from Lisa Jewell and now I’m kicking myself (and making a list) because this was brilliant!  A thrilling mystery that had me guessing the whole way through!

Sugar Town Queens:  A hard hitting story with a brilliant cast of characters and an intriguing mystery thrown in!

All of Us Villains:  I’ve really enjoyed Amanda Foody’s books in the past, so I had high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint!  A Hunger Games style story with plenty of action and magical curses!

All Systems Red This series was recommended to me at least a million times, because I LOVE sassy robots, AI’s etc!  This was a short introduction book and I’ve already fallen in love with Murderbot!  Looking forward to reading the next books in the series

The Unusual Abduction of Avery Conifer: This was another book that revolved around super hard hitting topics: child abuse, family drama, domestic violence etc and still managed to be so witty and incredible.  I absolutely love sarcastic, elderly characters, they just entertain me so much and this book has one of the best ones in Winnie!


As usual, clicking on the pics below will take you to my reviews (Some reviews may not be live on my blog yet as I post them on the book’s release date due to publisher’s requests, so keep your eye on my blog for those reviews in September)  🙂

Let me know in the comments what your favourite read was for August!

  1. I am sorry that you have asthma Jen even if it makes you read 19 books! That’s an awful sensation when you suffocate. One I knew very well till my 15 years.
