August was a pretty slow month for me in terms of reading. I only read 8 books, though a couple of them were on the bigger page count scale.
I usually feature the top two books of month from differing genres, but only one book stood out this month.
Captain’s Fury is slower than the previous novels, but that does not detract from its awesomeness. If you’ve made it this far into the series, you can forgive it’s slowly pace and lengthy set up for the final two novels.
The Turn of the Key is Ware’s most boring and unsuccessful novel to date. The boring plot coupled with the slow pace make The Turn of the Key a mystery worth passing on.
Wanderers paints a bleak picture of the future of the United States of American as Wendig digs into real life issues plaguing the country.
Twisted Betrayal is so much more than a bully romance. It’s sick, twisted, and unhealthy.
Triptych is the first book in the Will Trent series. I previously read the third novel and loved it, so I decided to go back to the beginning. Triptych is a great introduction to these characters with a well plotted mystery.
The Lathe of Heaven is my first Ursula K. Le Guin novel and it will not be my last. If you enjoyed Recursion by Blake Crouch, you will like The Lathe of Heaven.
Twice in a Blue Moon is a solid second chance romance with a Hollywood twist!
I decided to DNF The Bone Ships at 35%. I found it to be too dense and slow. The world building is very sink or swim and readers do not get any answers until 100 pages in. I might pick it up again, but it was putting me in a slump.
