Reading Roundup - a quick reference list of the 10 books reviews in August
Need a quick reference guide about what we reviewed in August? Here you go:
Each month Donna and I try to pick a couple books to read together as Buddy Reads - it's fun to share our thoughts about a book in real time. This month we read Eleanor and Park and The Song of Achilles - both out of our usual genre comfort zones. Eleanor and Park is a YA romance and Song of Achilles is about the Trojan War and Achilles as a young man.
Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter - a doozy of a thriller
Lessons From Lucy by Dave Barry - can a dog teach you some new tricks?
A Memory of Violets by Hazel Gaynor - feel-good historical fiction with a touch of mystery and romance
All my Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews - all about the strong bond sisters share
The Overstory by Richard Powers - Pulitzer winner about trees and people who want to save them
How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper - solitary middle-aged man learns to change and embrace his fears
A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn - historical fiction featuring an unusually independent woman solving a murder
Nine Perfect Lives by Liane Moriarity - nine people go to a retreat and have a bizarre, scary experience
