Well done, Eva! I wish I had read as many books in August, but I seem to be lagging these days. Sorry some of the books you were looking forward to reading didn't measure up :( It's always a bit sad when that happens.ReplyDelete
Here's to a spectacular September!

Wow you basically read a book a day!! Go you!!! How did you like With Malice?? I really really liked it... but I've also been on a MISSION to find a good YA Mystery for 2 years now.ReplyDelete
Oh man, I didn't like it -- I really wanted more of a thrill and the ending was kind of poorly done considering what it meant. It also could have been due to listening to it on audio since I really didn't like the narratorDelete
Dang, you read a lot in August! I read 53 Letters to My Lover too. You mentioned it in a different post and I couldn't pass it up. Loved it!ReplyDelete
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! SO happy you read it and liked it! ♥Delete
Eva that is a great amount of books that you read in August! The Boy is Back was actually the book to get me out of my reading funk, I absolutely loved it and Reed! Have you read the rest of the Boy series? I hope you have another great reading month in September! :)ReplyDelete
REED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY, we need to chat about it because no one else has read it yet. So I haven't read anything else in the series yet but I have to soon because I loved this one. I just bought books 2 and 3 ! ♥ do you have a fave?Delete
Woah, you read so many books! I hope you have a good September!ReplyDelete

You red a lot of great books, that is awesome! I actually didn't do too bad either which was a nice change for me lately. I've been seriously slacking lately in the reading department.ReplyDelete
Great reading month you've had!!! I'm still trying to get on the ball to be where I was at the beginning of this year!ReplyDelete
Tori @ In Tori Lex
Wow, what a great reading month! That sucks about the 4 DNFs, sorry they weren't for. Really though you had such an amazing month as far as books go. Woo hoo!! 👏🏻👏🏻😀😀ReplyDelete
What is this Meg Cabot book, and why don't I know anything about it?! Going to Goodreads now! What an awesome reading month!!ReplyDelete
August was a great month for you!ReplyDelete
I've got The Boy is Back on my reading pile for this week and seeing how much you loved it is making me super stoked to read it myself. Woot!
The Last Days of Night and the City Baker's Guide are high up on my list. I am sorry you could not find a good rock star romance! Have you read Aunt Dimity and the Duke? It's a cute cozy mystery with a sort of rock star in it. Maybe not what you had in mind, but worth a look!ReplyDelete
Wow so many books!! What a great reading month for you!ReplyDelete
I do not like rock star books, I can't think of any I like but I'm sure there must be at least one. Let me check my GR. You did so good, did Nick teach you her ways? I did good in August too (compared to my previous months) I read 11 books but most were audiobooks. Oh well. Have a great September Eva!ReplyDelete

11 is awesome and even more awesome that they were audiobooks!! I want something that makes me feel like Girl, How to Kill a Rock Star or Devoured -- I'll keep looking ♥Delete
Wow, that's a lot of books! I'd like to give Catherine Coulter a try sometime. I'll have to check out your review. Someday I'll get to 53 Letters! I seem to remember hearing there was a lot of angst with Mighty Storm so I never wanted to pick it up. Sorry to hear it didn't work for you. Fabulous month, Eva! :)ReplyDelete
Ohh congrats on 23 books!! THAT IS AWESOME! I READ THAT MANY TOO!! *brings cake to this obvious party* Although I luckily didn't have any DNF's phew, but I did have a fair few books I really wish I'd never tried.😂 Ah well, it can't be a win all the time, right?!? I love the cover of The Boy is Back!! :DReplyDelete
Wow, you read a ton! I have Been Here All Along and Swear on this Life on my TBR. I hope you have a great September!ReplyDelete
Wow you did amazing! I hope September is great too! I like the synopsis for With Malice sounds very mysterious :)ReplyDelete
You read a TON! Woo hoo! My favorite rock star romance is sort of a tortured one - it made me feel everything (including hate sometimes), but I love books like that. It's Rock Angel by Jeanne Bogino. If you click the link you'll find my completely incoherent review - this was the type of book that just made me overwhelmed with things to say and it has stuck in my head even though I read it a year ago.ReplyDelete
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Whoa, 23 books in August. Color me impressed! Sorry to see the rock star romances didn't work, though. I'm trying to think if I've read any recently and the only one that comes close is This One Moment by Stina Lindenblatt. Unfortunately I wouldn't really recommend it. It was so tropey and over the top.ReplyDelete
Tanya @ GIRL PLUS BOOKS
23 BOOKS?! What even! Oh my goodness!ReplyDelete
If you've never read books in the Love Inspired series and didn't like this one. I suggest you read Love Inspired Suspense. Those are the ones I prefer. I've re-read so many of them because they are really good.
But seriously, give me the trick of reading so many books a month! I need to know!
You're amazing! I don't even know how many I read but it wasn't anywhere near 23 books! I haven't read any of the books you read except for 53 LETTERS FOR MY LOVER. :)ReplyDelete
You had a busy August! And I spotted a Janet Evanovich book! I love her Stephanie Plum series but I haven't ventured out to try her other series and book. Awesome job!ReplyDelete
Books and Swoons
Wow!! You made it through a ton of books last month. Meg Cabot is one author I need to start reading. I have a couple of her books, but haven't gotten around to them.ReplyDelete
With Malice is one I want to read. You did amazeballs for reading though. WOW!ReplyDelete
