Some highlights from the books you shared about in last month’s linkup:
On her reading stack this month, Kate (Mom’s Radius) has Swear On This Life, which I have on hold at the library, and Burial Rites, which I have three days to finish before we start discussing it on Thursday. Or ok, I have until next Monday because my questions for Thursday and Friday are of the easy sort that don’t require you to have finished the book. Still. I need to get moving!
And unsurprisingly, she has the newest Harry Potter book, which I’m still debating reading. Will it ruin the series for me? I’m sure I’ll read it someday, but I’m not sure when that day will be.
Stacie (Sincerely Stacie) reminded me of myself with her comments that she’s trying to take on fewer books, and then here’s this huge list of new books for the month. I do that too, because it’s just so hard to resist books. 🙂
She’s added The Little Paris Bookshop to her reading stack, and I just got a library copy (now to actually get it read). She’s also gotten me to add two other books to my TBR list as possibilities – Midair and These Things Hidden both sound intriguing. They’re not definites for me to read, but they’re definitely being considered.
I get so excited when I see that people have really liked books I recommend. So of course I was happy seeing that Tanya (The Other Side of the Road) said her favorite book for the month was Big Little Lies (no, it doesn’t matter if I’m not the reason someone read the book. I still get excited to see someone enjoy it). Going on my TBR list thanks to her post is The Collapse of Parenting, which sounds interesting.
Jill (Days at Home) has only five books listed, but one of them I added to my stack last month (The Daughter of Union County), one book I added to my stack this month (The Things We Wish Were True), and one I’m debating (First Impressions). Apparently we’re in reading sync right now.
And, Jessica (Quirky Bookworm has stopped blogging (sniff) but she’s got her site archived at least. And she’s still on social media so I can stalk her literary choices. Fingers crossed she’ll add an Instagram picture to the linkup this month with her latest reading stack. Hint, hint. 😉
She’s got a lot listed this month that I either already planned to read (Truly, Madly, Guilty), or have on my radar as possibilities (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Alexander Hamilton). What I’m most curious to hear her opinion on is Valient Ambition by Nathaniel Philbrick. It sounds like one I’d really like – I do love history – but I detested Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea so I’m giving his newest major side-eye until I hear some glowing reviews.
And speaking of next month’s linkup, it will be on this Friday, September 2nd. I’m trying to avoid weekend posting, so I’ve bumped it up a day. It’ll be open all month though, so you’ve got plenty of time to add your links. I can’t wait to see what all you’re reading!
