Hot Titles for a Hot Month

August 2023 wound up being another 6-title month for me. Not terrible, but not great either. Considering we spent 4 of those days driving across the country, one would think I'd have devoured a few titles just on those days alone. It turns out four female drivers from 3 different generations do not have the same taste in road trip entertainment. I really thought my mother-in-law and I would at least get into one together but I think I chose poorly. Ah, well. I won't be doing that again, so...I'd say I'll do better next time but there will not be a next time. This month every book I read was recommended by someone whose opinion I value, so no surprise, there were no books that I did not enjoy. I'd recommend all of these titles.

Just to be a little different this month, rather than giving you titles in order of rating, I'm going to go in order of date read. Since they were all good-no need to put the best at the top! As ever, click the image to get to my full Goodreads review.
