During the month of August , I read 12 books for this year’s Book Pledge, bringing my total for read books this year to 58 books. Can you believe it? Yes, I did read a lot – especially in front of the fan on extremely hot days. When I am on a break from work, I tend to fill many hours doing one of my favourite things. I read a variety of genres and introduced myself to a few new authors. A very varied reading month.
The titles I read in August are listed below. To read my reviews (if you haven’t already), click on the title in the following list:
- Jane Austen: A Life Revealed by Catherine Reed – a non-fiction read on Jane Austen ⭐️⭐️ 2 stars

I read so many good books during the month of August and after I read many of them them I thought I had found my favourite for the month. Yet when I look back on my list I cannot help but choose The Guilded King by Josie Jaffrey. This indie author has created a world that not only drew me in, but also made me want to read her other books. While reading her novel I could not believe that she was self published – that is how good her writing and story is. The second installment in this series is coming out soon – watch this space as you can be sure I will read the novel.
