August 2019 Reading Haul / Wrap Up

Why would you combine a wrap up with a haul? Well, I didn’t finish enough books to make the wrap up an interesting enough post. I even took vacation at the end of August and only finished one book. Hence the combination of the two. Anyway, I’m going to start with my sad little wrap up.


Finished: Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

Completed entirely: The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Night Boat to Tangier by Kevin Barry

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss (an on-the-page buddy read with Krystyna @ Turning the Pages. I will eventually have a review for that up, and I will tell you more about the buddy read in a later post! It’s exciting stuff.)

That’s it—moving on.


I collected 18 more wonderful books for my shelves. I have officially filled up a whole bookshelf of (unread) books. I have a different shelf that holds the books I’ve read. Seventeen of the books I am about to haul, I paid for with my own money. One of them I received from Berkley Publishing—Goodreads Giveaway. Fortunately for my wallet, none of these were full price! Exciting, I know.

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

The Big Finish by Brooke Fossey — This was the ARC I received from Berkley/Goodreads. It comes out April 14, 2020, if you’re interested. It sounds super cute!

The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan

Night by Elie Wiesel

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

The Whisper Man by Alex North— Book of the Month pick.

My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout— The only one out of this group that I have already read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
