What I Read in August 2022

How’s your summer been? Somehow August is ending already! While I’ve loved al fresco reading, I have to say that the fact that cosy autumn nights are on the horizon is a nice thought…

Not to jump ahead too soon though – August was a great fun for reading and I enjoyed these 6 books. I leaned towards the thriller genre for some reason, I think due to their ease of getting in to and fast pace. It was just what I needed this summer.

My August Book Reviews:

(Click on book title for my full review.)

/ Not Safe For Work by Isabel Kaplan

/ Bad Fruit by Ella King

/ Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney

/ My Other Husband by Dorothy Koomson

/ People Person by Candice Carty-Williams

/ The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams

So yes, those thrillers were Daisy Darker and My Other Husband and in the more psychological end of the spectrum, Bad Fruit. All brilliantly written but taking on very different subjects in their plots.

People Person and Not Safe for Work were more character led. From London to LA they were both focused on families and how those relationships can shape a person. Actually, that was a core theme for Bad Fruit too.

Rounding up this list with a truly delightful classic children’s book – The Velveteen Rabbit. I’ve decided to add more children’s book reviews into my mix. I think this came from reading a little more with my boys over summer and realising that some books they bring to me to read I just hate (like, no story or anything, it baffles me how they get published) and some I love.

Obviously I’ll be sharing the best ones on here – starting with The Velveteen Rabbit – an absolute classic that was a first read for me only recently.

Until next month – happy reading!
