August Wrap-Up

Hello Everyone!

I cannot believe that today is the last day of August. The month flew by and I don’t know where it all went. August wasn’t my best reading month, but I’m still pleased with how it went. Here are the four books I read in August.

Taken At the Flood by Agatha Christie

This was my Poirot book of the month. While I remember enjoying this one, ultimately it was a bit forgettable because I don’t remember much about it while I’m writing this. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Taken at the Flood.

Yellowface by R.F. Kuang

Unpopular opinion, but I really did not enjoy Yellowface. If this wasn’t a book club pick, I would have DNFed it. While I understand what the author was trying to do with this book, I just wasn’t a fan. It also didn’t help that I figured out one of the twists fairly early on, which took away some of the excitement of the story.

Tastes Like Shakkar by Nisha Sharma

This book was such a fun read! I loved the banter between the two main characters and I love the friendships in this series. This book was steamy and fun and it also made me laugh out loud. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Tastes Like Shakkar.

Norah’s Ark by Victoria Williamson

I read this middle-grade book as part of the blog tour hosted by The Write Reads. This middle-grade book dealt with a lot of heavy topics like homelessness and addiction, but it handled them in an age appropriate way. I absolutely loved the friendship between the two main characters in this book. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Norah’s Ark.
