August Reads

by Erin Craig

Hey everyone!

I hope this finds you in the midst of an amazing summer! I didn’t get the chance to post about what I was reading in July. I was up visiting my family in Michigan and also slammed with not one, but TWO revisions on HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS, plus #CampNanoWriMo. It was a busy month but I had so much fun getting to see everyone, getting my hair cut (finally!), and taking my author pictures taken (more on that later!).

I read:

  • Tara Isabella Burton’s SOCIAL CREATURE
  • Peng Shepherd’s THE STORY OF M
  • Marissa Pessl’s NEVERWORLD WAKE
  • Paul Trembley’s THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD and
  • Mindy McGinnis’ A MADNESS SO DISCREET

and… (insert drum roll here)

…crushed my third #CampNano, clocking 813 pages of edits!

With HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS off to copy edits (hooray!) I’m tackling my TBR stack, which somehow grew again. What can I say? Vacation Erin likes to support her hometown bookstores!

This month, I plan on reading:

  • Fellow #Novel19s, Olivia Hinebaugh’s ARC of THE BIRDS, THE BEES, AND YOU AND ME
  • Plum Sykes’ PRETTY GIRLS DIE IN PEARLS
  • Zoje Stage’s BABY TEETH
  • CJ Omololu’s THE THIRD TWIN
  • Stuart Truton’s THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE
  • Derek Milman’s SCREAM ALL NIGHT (not pictured because Kindle)  and
  • Alexandra Oliva’s THE LAST ONE (same)

As summer begins to give way to fall (THANK GOODNESS!) what books are on the top of YOUR list?
