From the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Mr. Goodbar the story of two women, a psychoanalyst and her patient who help each other through very different periods in their lives. When Dawn Henley, the beautiful, talented Barnard College freshman steps into psychoanalyst Dr. Lulu Shinefelds office, shes immediately intrigued.

August was a tough month for reading time but I managed to get 7 books finished & I started a couple of others. I liked everything I read & The Book of Cold Cases, The Traveling Cat Chronicles & The Half-Life of Ruby Fielding were my favorites. 4 books were for #buddyreads for #SundayBuddyRead #PemberLittens & #FoodandLit #Japan & 3 were ARCs for review & the #AugustARCReadathon

August was an odd reading month. Not many stellar reads, but higher than average number of books for me
✅read 1 #roll100 selection, bailed on the second, and had previously read the third in July
✅read my #doublespin, but not my #bookspin
✅read Aug‘s #whartonbuddyread
✅read Aug‘s #diversecozy which also worked for #foodandlit
✅added 7 more books to #192025
✅6/9 from my TBR

My #augustwrapup looks almost nothing like my proposed TBR, but I did manage 6 books from that original list and I bailed on at least 3 others. I finished 15 books, which makes me happy, even if 3 of them were unplanned rereads. Lots of brain candy, the majority of the books were 4-5 star reads, and just few heartbreaking disappointments. #auguststats

I'm off for 3 days during this readathon, so I hopefully will end up posting some decent hrs.
My goals:
Finish Troy
Finish The Windup Girl
Start 2 new books
Read 30 hours

#AwesomeAugust @Andrew65

Andrew65 Great to have you with us. Good luck 😍 1y
RamsFan1963 @Andrew65 I ended up finishing Troy before the #AwesomeAugust readathon began, so I'm substituting the audiobook Forget The Alamo in my goals to finish. 1y
Andrew65 I‘ve just done exactly the same, finished one of my books at 11.50 pm before the Readathon started. 1y

I‘m taking it down to the wire even more than usual this time, but here‘s my #bookspinbingo stack for August! The Sound of the Sea is still on the way, so I had to cheat it in there. 😬 And now I don‘t have to wait very long to see the numbers! I love seeing everyone‘s lists and stacks every month.

Thanks to the brilliant idea from @sprainedbrain I will be attempting to bust through some of my NetGalley queue this month. I know I won‘t get through all of these, but I‘ll be satisfied if I can get through the top two rows.

I‘ve decided to go back to school this fall (why, I don‘t know...), and start back in September. I‘m trying to squeeze in a bunch of fun reading this month, so I‘m trying to get through as many of these as possible! I‘m currently finishing up Three Women and reading Preacher Vol 1. What do you recommend next?!

TrishB Hope you enjoy it, it‘s one of those series that gets better and better. I love Jessica the MC. 4y
EadieB @TrishB I know Andrew enjoyed it so I probably will too! 4y

EadieB @MrT Yes! And more! 4y
Tove_Reads Looks good! Don‘t forget Quentins. 4y
gradcat @EadieB Are we Reading any more Cara Black books? I‘ve got about ten pages left on the first one, and I really enjoyed it! You‘ve sure got a big stack TBR there...loads of great ones! 📚👍😊 4y
EadieB @gradcat We usually read the next book by an author around the same time in the month so probably the end of August for Cara Black but if you are a slow reader, you can start earlier. I have to order the next one from the library that‘s why it‘s not in this pile. @Andrew65 @Tove_Reads 4y
EadieB @Tove_Reads Thanks! Forgot what book was next. I‘ll have to order it from library. 4y
gradcat @EadieB Thanks Eadie...that‘ll be perfect! I appreciate you helping me keep up—I feel like I‘m out of touch because I‘m missing things. ♥️ 4y
Andrew65 @EadieB I can get hold of book 2 as an audiobook whilst we are away from home. @gradcat @Tove_Reads (edited) 4y
EadieB @Andrew65 ok Sounds good! 4y

Day 1: #ReadingResolutions #AugustTBR

Another ambitious TBR pile for me. I'm still reading Children of Blood and Bone & Area X from July TBR. Ha! Well, let's see if this month's TBR is doable.

I realized when I put my TBR books on my side table, I'm more disciplined to read them. So hopefully, it'll work again for me this month! 😁

BarbaraBB @Lola Happy that you liked The Ministry too. How are you going with the longlist? 5y
Lola @BarbaraBB I haven't read Ministry yet....I meant that given the fact that I also loved 4 of your 5, I am now expecting to love Ministry as much as you did :) I'm not doing so well with the long list-I've only read two 😬I own 6 others so should bump those up. I feel especially attached to the prize this year as the chair of the 2017 judges is (Baroness) Lola (Young) 😛 5y
BarbaraBB @lola Ah, of course! I understand now! Looking forward to what you think of it - if you get to it! But you should, to please Baroness Lola 😉 5y
