August 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

So… what a month. At first, it had been perfect. I went to New York (a work-related event) and then I traveled to Scotland with the family. I couldn’t ask for more. I even read some great books during my trips. But then I went home to Barcelona and the day after I arrived, the attack happened. So sad for everyone who was killed or injured. I hope this era of terror comes to an end as soon as possible… Anyway, here’s how I spent my reading month.

In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I'm just a twenty-something bookworm who loves listening to old songs and watching 90s movies. I enjoy mystery and crime, southern coming of age stories and historical fiction set in the last century.

  2. What a month indeed, you’ve travelled all over the place and read soooo many books! As usual there are quite a few I’d like to read too, especially The Other Girl and My Absolute Darling. I look forward to your review of Close to Home. My review will be up next week… I’m really curious what you think. Personally, I liked it less than his previous novel. It was different all right. Nice book haul as well, highest on my wishlist is I Found You :-). Happy reading !

    1. Oh Inge, that’s exactly what I thought. It was my least favorite out of the 5 😦 Still liked it, but I wasn’t in love with it as with the others. Can’t wait for I found You, hope to read it soon!

  4. Wow! You get so many books in every month. I’m in awe!

    I’m listening to The Burning Girl right now and so far like it very much.

    I don’t even know what to say about terrorism anymore….hate it? There has to be a better way?
