Month In Review

A look back at August…

August was a bit of a mixed reading month for me. I had a lot of fantastic reads and a few that were more of a struggle. I had hoped to get to a few more women in translation reads too, but I did at least get a couple in that I really enjoyed! I was in the mood for the quirky and different this month and GIDEON THE NINTH by Tamsyn Muir was definitely both and therefore my favorite for the month!
