In August I have finished a grand total of ONE book!

 

The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King was a group read and one I really wanted to read. It was a complete disappointment as a book, but it satisfied my need to read it anyway.

 

I started out with intent to read A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab, but I didn't get too far before...

 

Netgalley. I lost control. They kept inviting me to read books that actually sounded like things I would like! In the meantime I had found two non-fiction books that interested me on their site: On the Wing by David E. Alexander and Synchronicity by Chris Mackey. I'm really enjoying On The Wing, but haven't properly started Synchronicity yet because I didn't want to have two non-fictions going at once.

 

So I've added three fiction books from Netgalley: Down: Pinhole by Glenn Cooper, Heirs of Empire by Evan Currie, and The Banished of Muirwood by Jeff Wheeler. Down: Pinhole started out really, really good, but I'm not so sure about it now. The middle seems a bit slow. The other two books I haven't actually started yet.

 

So, add a next group read, Stinger by Robert McCammon and I've got waaaay too much to read!

 

Just when I thought I had seriously committed too much, I received the ARC for The Future Memory Man by Shanna Lauffey! I will of course effectively drop everything else to read the next episode of my favourite time travel series! This is officially released on 7th September, and there is a pre-release price of .99 until then. She also put all the other books in the series on .99 in the run-up to release.

 

I've had little reading time this past month due to too many work hours, but hopefully I can clear this lot by the end of September so I can read all the other books clamouring to be next! So many books, so little time. Sigh! Keep me off Netgalley...
