My favourite read for #august. Really liked how the three women portrayed as being independent and bright and intelligent and it not being a bad thing. It was the best written of the buzzy books that I read this year. #12booksof2021

Andrew65 This is a must read for me this year. 6mo

Katherina is one of my favourite characters of the year.

MerlinTheSlightlyAwkward What a character! I've taken some mental notes on the er... strength of her feelings on the world around her ?. "... looks like an unwell river otter in a doublet" was a genuinely endearing line 6mo

#August #12BooksOf2021

It‘s a shame it took me so long to pick this one up, but I am so glad I read this one in 2021!

This heartbreaking story, yet with touches of hope, showcases a little known piece of American history. Children taken from their homes and adopted out to well to do families…ugh! Wingate tells the story with grace. It has made me want to read her other books!

As usual, I'm a couple days behind 🤣

My #7thBookof2021 for #July is The Last House on Needless Street and the #8thBookof2021 for #August is The Final Girl Support Group. Bothe fantastic reads! I didn't finish a single book in #September so I'm skipping the month 😅

My favorite book from #August. Mostly light and easy, but it does touch on heavier topics, mainly grief and loss. A well-done book and a great read!

I love Roman history. There's something about them I find endlessly fascinating, no matter how bloody or horrible they are portrayed. This was an interesting look at the best of the worst of Roman Emperors, with a nice healthy dose of snark.

I read a lot of great books in #August #8thbookof2021 so it was hard to choose one. But I ended up with picking this because I think this has stayed with me the most after reading.


Honorable mentions: Everybody by Olivia Laing, The Rain Heron by Robbie Arnott, Things I don‘t Want to Know by Deborah Levy, The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid and A Town Called Solace by Mary Lawson

A lot of easy reading in August as it was a lovely week in Northumberland so I am going purely on that memory of reading with fish and chips, beer, views, the North Sea and of course already excellent whodunnit with opportunity for a good litsy photo. We must be a strange breed of people who can probably be spotted in the wild trying to artisticly pose books for photos with family looking on askance.

Andrew65 🤣🤣🤣 Give us a book and a camera and we are happy! A good book. 6mo
Cathythoughts Excellent picture 💫 6mo
Centique This made me smile! My husband has just been explaining to our hosts on holiday that “every time she finishes a book she has to take a photo of it!” 😂😂😂 6mo
