August Confessions

Goodbye, August! What a strange month it has been, but we tried to make the best of it. I can't believe my oldest is already back to school.

I tried to read as many beach reads as I could this month and I am glad I got around to a few more from my never ending list. I hope to read even more until the end of September.  What books did you read this month?

Books Read in August:
1.  Two Truths and a Lie by Megan Mitchell Moore (Adult Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
2.  The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis (Adult Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
3.  Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner (Adult Fiction) 3.5 out of 5 stars
4.  Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch (Audio book/Biography)  4 out of 5 stars
5.  On Ocean Boulevard by Mary Alice Monroe (Adult Fiction) -  3.5 out of 5 stars
6.  The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline (Adult Historical Fiction) - 4.5 out 5 stars - Review to come!
7.  The Guest List by Lucy Foley (Audio Book/Adult Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!

1. Favorite Book:  The Exiles was outstanding. It had everything I love in a historical fiction.  Fans of historical fiction won't want to miss this one. It's definitely one of my favorite books of the year. 

2.  Biggest Surprise:  Big Summer ended up being a BIG surprise for me since I didn't see that plot twist coming!

3.  Biggest DisappointmentI can't say that I was disappointed by any books this month, although a lot of them were decent beach reads and not mind-blowing by any means.

4.  Favorite Post: Blog Tour: The Switch

5.  Favorite Part of August:  August has been a strange month, but I enjoyed all the extra time with my kids at the pool and doing fun activities at home. We were able to take one last trip to the Jersey shore, so that was extra special.

How about you guys? What was your favorite book of the month? Let me know in the comments below.

  3. I am really looking forward to The Guest List - however, last time i checked my library, they only have it in e-book and there are like 400 people in line for it!
