I won‘t finish Black Water Lilies tonight, so my slowest reading month of the year ends with 10 finished books and several bails. On the bright side, three were 5 star reads, making it nearly impossible to pick a favorite. I‘ll take quality over quantity, if I can‘t have both. I cleared 6 books from my NetGalley backlog and checked off 4 books from the McIlvanney Prize longlist. #auguststats #augustwrapup

Keeping my #AugustTBR simple. I should receive the ARC of South Central Noir by next week, Do No Harm is a NetGalley ARC that releases next week, and I hope to have Black Water Lilies soon, too. Once I get through those, it‘s over to my Spin the Wheel app to choose books from either my NetGalley backlist or the balance of books for the McIlvanney Prize longlist.

Repost for @TheAromaofBooks

Oh my gosh, what the heck, we're only a week away from AUGUST?!? This summer has been busy but good. The peach harvest has officially started, so we are rolling into my busiest time of year - orchard time!! 😁 I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing what you all have been reading this month & am looking forward to your lists for August!

I was hoping to read eight books, but all things considered I‘m satisfied with the six that I did read. #AugustWrapup

WJCintron Great job!! I'm waiting for my copy of The Wife Upstairs. Is it good? 1y
Susanita @WJCintron I liked it but didn‘t love it. The MC is delightfully snarky, though. 1y

Happy Ferragosto to all my italian friends here on Litsy and to everyone who celebrates this summer holiday
🥳🍉🍹🍦🎆🎈

DivineDiana Would you tell your Non Italian friends something about the holiday? 1y
La_Cori @DivineDiana in some ways Ferragosto is like Christmas but in the summer, it's the day that everyone is on holiday (except restaurants/tourism related activities and hospitals).. it's tradition to gather with family and friends and eat, barbecue usually or go for a day trip to the beach.. I found this article with more details 😉 https://instantlyitaly.com/what-is-ferragosto-all-you-need-to-know-about-this-un... 1y
DivineDiana Thank you! Buon Ferragosto! 1y
