Time is getting away from me already. After having such a great reading month in August I’ve struggled a bit to really figure out which books to take on this month. I absolutely enjoyed everything that I read in August and actually got through everything I planned to read with the exception of Diane Mott Davidson’s THE WHOLE ENCHILADA which I will carry forward to this month.
The list I’ve come up with is pretty extensive. Considering that it is already the 12th, I’m not sure exactly how realistic it is but I’m going to go with it because there are some pretty great titles on it that I want to make sure you know about!
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent is our Hashtag Book Club pick this month. I’m going to be reading and listening to this one in order to stay on schedule. My impression so far… it’s going to be interesting. I like the audio because it helps to make sense of the Icelandic names and their proper pronunciation.
I’m a bit behind the curve in the Jojo Moyes craze. Her first release, Me Before You received a lot of blogger love and The Girl You Left Behind is promising to do just as well. This title was picked for the October selection for the She Reads book club and I’m really looking forward to picking it up.
The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot is the most recent installment in the Heather Wells Mystery Series and is releasing this month. This looks like it should be an entertaining read. This is my second time reading Cabot’s Heather Wells series. The first was last year when she released Size 12 and Ready to Rock.
The Good Wife by Jane Porter is the third installment in the Brennan Sisters trilogy. The Good Woman introduced us to the Brennan Sisters, The Good Daughter continued the saga and is now concluding with The Good Wife. Can’t wait to see how this family ends up!
I was pitched Deliberate Motherhood by The Power of Moms on one of those days that I was feeling like I’ll never be or do “enough”. I don’t expect it to be earth shattering information, but sometimes its just nice to be reminded of the things that we can and often already do to make life a little easier.
The Book of Someday I picked this one up for consideration for my featured reviews over at
She Reads. (Did you see last month, I reviewed The Ashford Affair). Unlike anything I’ve read or listened to recently, look for the review soon!
I saw some chatter about The Hive by Gill Horby on twitter and knew immediately that I wanted to read it. Touted as a funny story of female friendship it looks like something I would enjoy.
Have you seen tweets and various articles about Emily Liebert’s You Knew Me When? This title is getting a lot of notice for its unique marketing. Liebert has collaborated with ZOYA, a wonderful nail polish company to produce a trio of colors based on the characters in the book. She’s also had a couple of dresses designed that reflect the personality of the characters. It is my understanding that she is going to wear them while out on tour for the book.
Aside from the unique approach at marketing, the book sounds fantastic. Can’t wait to pick it up, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Are there any books that you are dying to read this September?
