I finished 7 books in August.  SEVEN!  I don’t think I’ve ever finished that few books in a month.  That’s being generous too.  One was a short story and one was a graphic novel.

The books I read were:

  • All fiction
  •  1 audiobook
  • Set in the U.S., England,  France, and Mexico.

What were my favorites?

  1. I have The Chocolate Maker’s Wife on my TBR, so I’m glad to read you really enjoyed it. I’ve been reading a few graphic novels too, my most recent was New Kid and my favorite was Pumpkinheads which was a wow read for me.

  2. You are really doing well on your round the world challenge. I loved the movie of Whale Rider (New Zealand). I remember taking our school classes to it. They clapped when the movie was over.
