My Month in Review: August


The Month in Review meme is hosted by Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

I note the non-Macmillan books in this post with a star.

Books completed this month:
Love Is for Losers by Wibke Brueggemann
The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein, narrated by Adam Grupper (audio)*
My Brilliant Life by Kim Ae-ran, translated by Chi-Young Kim
Stella Díaz Dreams Big by Angela Dominguez
Astronaut Academy: Splashdown by Dave Roman
Gone to the Woods by Gary Paulsen
These six I actually read in July, but because I was in the middle of moving, I wasn't able to update the post to add these in a timely fashion.
These are what I really read in August:
Girlhood by Melissa Febos
Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York by Elon Green
Race Against Time by Jerry Mitchell (audio)*
Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano
Baseball's Leading Lady : Effa Manley and the Rise and Fall of the Negro Leagues by Andrea Williams
A Shot at Normal by Marisa Reichardt
Race to the Bottom of the Earth: Surviving Antarctica by Rebecca E. F. Barone
The Comeback: A Figure Skating Novel by E.L. Shen

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
All Girls by Emily Layden
Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley

What I acquired this month (non-work books):
Hieroglyphics by Jill McCorkle (signed!)
Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place by Terry Tempest Williams
A Mind Unraveled by Kurt Eichenwald
Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman
Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson
The first four I bought from Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, North Carolina after a Jill McCorkle online event, as I could get a signed book, and then as long as I was ordering, why not add some more? The last one I had preordered from Loyalty Bookstore in Silver Spring, Maryland.
