August Wrap Up & September TBR

I think my initial target of reading the below 12 books was on more of the optimistic side. I knew that I had a week off at the end of the month, and although I had every plan of reading – I think I slept more than I read!! Whoops.

Saying that, I still managed to finish 7 books in August, which is pretty good going for me considering the number out ‘out of work’ stuffs I’ve had going on; renovating the house, friends visiting, camping trips, changing jobs…that’s just in a nutshell! It’s felt like a pretty full on month.

But enough of that, let me take you throught the books I completed and those I plan on reading in September!

AUGUST READS;

HIDDEN KILLERS & GOOD FRIDAY by Lynda LaPlante

NEED YOU DEAD by Peter James

LAST STOP TOKYO by James Buckler

I haven’t yet completed my reviews for the books below – I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you on these. Especially INSIDIOUS INTENT, which had me trying to explain to my other half how a book can leave you in floods of tears!!

LOVE ME NOT by M.J. Arlidge

THE DRY by Jane Harper

INSIDIOUS INTENT by Val McDermid

 

SEPTEMBER TBR;

There is some overspill from the August TBR, which I am still really keen on reading this month. I am also taking part in FOUR blog tours!! Details below! The first hits the page on September 4th for the new Liz Mistry novel; UNTAINTED BLOOD.

UNTAINED BLOOD by Liz Mistry

LOCKED UP by GB Williams

MARIA IN THE MOON by Louise Beech

HOUSE OF SPINES by Michael J. Malone

THE SNOWMAN by Jo Nesbo

TO KILL THE PRESIDENT by Sam Bourne

FINAL GIRLS by Riley Sager

I’m hoping that I can get through these books and have room to add a couple of cheeky ones in there. There are so many books on my TBR which have been there for far too long now! Why can’t I get my salary for reading books full time?!

Have you read any of the books on my wrap up & TBR? What are your thoughts?

I would love to know in the comments.

Happy reading!!

#WomensHistoryMonth – A Month of Literary Celebration

March celebrates Women’s History Month. It highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.

Here at The P.Turners Book Blog – we wanted to celebrate WHM by celebrating some of our favourite female authors who we feel have not only shaped the world of literature, but also how it has affected our own taste in reading.

Each of us will take a week in March to share with you our thoughts. Authors ranging from J.K. Rowling to Sylvia Day, E.L. James to Harper Lee and Agatha Christie to Enid Blyton!

Now, this isn’t a “this female author is better than that one” – quite the contrary, there are just so many to mention!Β If we were to feature ALL of the female authors on Earth, then we may be here some time!

As always, we would love to hear your thoughts and whether you agree or disagree with our choices.

Here is how the month will look for posting;
(NB. We will be posting Mon-Fri each weeks)
