Finally started this beauty! The cover is amazing, and it is so good so far! It also works for almost every photo challenge I've been missing... #augustmostanticipated #anditsaugust #independentwomen #augustgrrrl #audiobookstogo #backtoreading #bookswithsisters #booksacrossoceans

Zelma Well played on the photo challenges! 👍 5y

readinginthedark @ForeverNerdy It's good so far! I love the sisters! 5y
Cortg I stacked it solely based on the cover 😉 5y
readinginthedark @Cortg I'm sure I would have done that, too, if I hadn't heard about the book before seeing it! I love the cover so much! 5y

A mini book haul from B&N got me my #augustmostanticipated. #anditsaugust

Stone Sky | N K Jemisin
post image

Decided to jump into another photo challenge so here are my picks for #anditsaugust

#AugustMostAnticipated goes to NK Jemisin's Stone Sky, hands down! The series honestly just gets better and better with each book. Plus, Robin Miles's narration of The Obelisk Gate was amazing.

In Another Brooklyn, August's new found #girlfriends help her adjust to her new home and to cope with the trials and tribulations of adolescence.


MallenNC Loved Another Brooklyn! 5y
EchoLogical @MallenNC Me too! The friendship between August and the others was a clear departure from that depicted in Zadie Smith's Swing Time, which I read right before Another Brooklyn. I think Robin Miles actually read the audio for both of these. 5y
MallenNC @EchoLogical I'd like to hear the audio version 5y

The Gunslinger | Stephen King
post image

I was planning (haha) to kick off August with The Gunslinger, but still in the middle of my current read. After reading American Gods in paperback, I had trouble jumping into an eBook (First time something like that happened), and I'm only picking up momentum now. These have been on my TBR for awhile now, so really amped to check them out!

vivastory Are you going to watch the movie soon? 5y
vivastory BTW The Silence sounds interesting 5y
rohit-sawant @vivastory Right?! And yes, looking forward to seeing it soon as I'm done with the book! I'm conflicted about going in without having read the first three in the series, which was my initial plan, but I'm just so excited! 5y

The heat wave rolling through caused a flare of my symptoms that knocked me on my ass the last few days, so here I am, already behind on August's photo challenges. 🙄 Here's a few of my #augustmostanticipated (NOTE: not shown: The 👏🏻 Stone 👏🏻 Sky 👏🏻 by N. 👏🏻 K. 👏🏻 Jemisin 👏🏻). I'll be reading through some of the #ManBookerLonglist and have some fun YA/MG fantasy reads, too. #mostanticipated #anditsaugust #backtoreading

I'm ba-aaaaack! I've been absent for a couple of months ( long story) but I'm back and intend to come back in full force. To jump right into things, let's get to @RealLifeReading 's August book challenge, #anditsaugust. My #augustmostanticipated actually came out a few weeks ago, but I haven't read it yet so I'm really looking forward to it. Eddie Izzard is my favorite comedian so I can't wait to dig into this memoir!

Librarianaut Welcome back!!!!!! Let the reading rumpus begin!! 5y
Bookwitchery @Librarianaut Thank you! It's good to be back! 5y
