August TBR Final

Since I had over a week  two weeks of recuperating from an injury, I had plenty of time to read.


  • The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd– WOW! The writing was beautiful. You know I checked it out because of the title. I din’ read the blurb. I never do. Writer’s spend so much time on blurbs and I don’t read them! So sorry about that. I pick books by titles and covers. If I had read the blurb I may not have read the book. I don’t like books about extra-marital affairs. But the way this book was written … i just loved it. The images of the island and the sadness surrounding her mother. Just read it.
  • Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier-  I have mixed feelings about this book. I really enjoyed book 1. I was disappointed with Book2. I may read book3 I haven’t made up my mind yet.
  • The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggach- DNF
  • Seven Deadlies A Cauionary Tale by Gigi Levangie- I just love the title.


  • Never Buried by Edie Claire- this is for the Goodreads summer challenge, letter (N).
  • Alas, She Drowned by Monica Knightley- letter (A). I loved this book. Great fun read. An author I will read again.
  • Virtually Scared to Death by Gillian Larken- letter (V)


  • Storm Front by Jim Butcher. It took a while to find book 1 in the Dresden Files.
  • Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell

Also finished:

  • How to Take Tea like the British by Jane Fleming- this was a short bit of nonfiction. It had a little history of tea as well as recipes for tea snacks.
  • Vanilla Beaned (Cupcake Bakery Mystery #8) by Jenn McKinlay- This series is always great fun to read. This one has the added joy of being set in Las Vegas during an Elvis convention:)
  • The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson- A sweet book.
  • Eclair Case of Murder by Leigh Selfman- okay.
  • A Whisker of Trouble by Sofie Ryan

Let me count…9 books read for August! That may be my personal best. I upped my Goodreads reading challenge to 80. That makes it 74% complete or 59/80. I’m also only 1 book away from completing the Cozy group Summer challenge. Now my fingers are unwrapped I hope to get back to writing.

I think the Mermaid Chair was my favorite read of the month.
