August Reads (2019 Edition)

estimated 3 min read

Yes, I finished the In Death series in August. I even managed to read a few other books! Netgalley hosted a reviewathon through, inexplicably, the 30th of August. I only managed to review two books, but I have checked out many of the titles from the library and I will work on the backlog!

The Princess BeardThe Princess Beard: The Tales of Pell★
by Delilah S. Dawson & Kevin Hearne

Once again Hearne and Dawson partnered to write a tale that combines wit, wordplay, and wisdom. Follow Morgan, Tempest, Al, Vic, Luc and many other “fione” characters as they adventure to they find where they belong. If you enjoy puns, poking fun at fairy tales, and not taking a story seriously, you’ll enjoy The Princess Beard.

Other Reviews
  • In Death Series by J.D. Robb
    I am not really sure why I was so completely gripped by this series. I devoured these books as if they were popcorn and called them as addictive as candy. I figured out how to frame books like this: they’re a bit like most TV shows, there’s nothing really good about them, but they’re a fun mental break. Mental breaks are important and it’s taken me (and Eve) a long time to come to that conclusion.
  • The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells
    This series has gained considerable attention for the non-human protagonist and what it means to be android … and human.

I’m flailing a little after finishing reading what case Eve and Peabody are solving almost daily for the past few months. I have that large pile of library books on my desk and even more on my ereader. Most are for Netgalley, but I’ve been trying to include fun reading in there too.
