If you know me at all, you know that I am a book addict.
NOTHING makes me happier than books. Nothing. Not even handbags, or lattes, or even my boyfriend, Colin Firth. Give me a pile of books to read and I’m a happy girl.
I have this recurring daydream that I’m like the Tom Hanks character in The Terminal, where he’s trapped in an airport terminal for weeks, except I’m trapped in a bookstore for weeks, and eventually have to be forcibly removed, because I don’t actually want to leave. I love this daydream.
Not weird at all. Totally Normal.
Anyway, as a book addict I have a pile of books always waiting for me, both on my iPad and my bedside table, so I thought I would share what’s on my must read list for this month.
WHO DO YOU LOVE – JENNIFER WEINER
This is what I’m currently reading, and received it as an arc from Simon & Schuster Canada. This is the first book I’ve read by Jennifer Weiner but I’m currently 37 pages in and already really enjoying it so I have high hopes and have heard nothing but great things.
THE VACATIONERS – EMMA STRAUB
This is this month’s #WorldsBiggestBookClub pick for Chapters Indigo and was actually sent to me by them, to read in time for their book club Twitter discussion (August 26 at 7pm EST). They do this every month (last month’s read was Me Before You by JoJo Moyes and I LOVED it) and I think it’s a great way to discover some new authors you may not have read otherwise.
ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN – DR. JESSICA VOGELSANG
This book keeps disappearing in my house, because my eight year old is obsessed with dogs and wants to read it before I do. It’s a funny, quirky memoir written by a Dr. Jessica Vogelsang, a veterinarian and promises to appeal to anyone who has ever loved or lost a beloved pet.
THE SAINT, THE KING, THE VIRGIN (The Original Sinners: White Years series) – TIFFANY REISZ
If you’re a fan of the erotica genre, and you haven’t read Tiffany Reisz’s The Original Sinners series, you are so missing out. Her books are absolutely some of the best I’ve read, and her writing is perfection. I just read the first four books of the series (The Siren, The Angel, The Prince, The Mistress) over the last week or so and I could not put them down – yes they came out in 2012, so clearly I’m a little slow in my appreciation. The White Series books are the next three books in the series, with the fourth coming out in November. READ THESE BOOKS!!
Normally my monthly MUST READ list would be much longer but with back to school coming up, the planning of a garage sale and my niece’s wedding happening in the next three weeks, I figure I should stop while I’m ahead.
So, have you read any of these books? What did you think? What’s on your August Must Read Book list???
