Book Reviews – the August Edition

I’m not sure what happened in August, but I only finished three books (and one of those was a devotional for Enneagram 9s that I was supposed to have read over Lent – oops). I’m not going to include the devotional here since it’s for a pretty specific audience and I don’t think you guys are into the Enneagram like I am. But let me know – if you’re a 9 I can talk to you about it.


Game On: Tempting Twenty-Eight (Stephanie Plum #28 duh) ★★★★by Janet Evanovich. In this chapter of the crazy life of Stephanie Plum, Bail Bonds Enforcement Agent, she is joined by Diesel (no last name, or no first name - the whole name situation is a bit fuzzy). They are trying to track down a super computer hacker who is having some serious mental health issues. Mayhem ensues. And you’d better believe that another of Stephanie’s cars bites the dust.  


Open Season (Joe Gunther #1) ★★★★, by Archer Mayor. Joe Gunther is a police lieutenant in Brattleboro, VT. In the opening scene an elderly woman shoots an intruder just outside her home. From there the case takes a very weird turn involving a murder from three years earlier. Someone wants that case opened back up, and they’re using a very unorthodox method to get the police’s attention. My brother recommended this series to me & I think I’m going to like it a lot – I’ve already finished book 2 (you’ll hear about it next month).

I’ve already finished four books in September and there are still 10 days to go. I’m seriously trying to figure out what the heck I did in August. Podcasts? Music? Did I reread some old books? At this point, only the Shadow knows… OK, now you tell me what good stuff you’ve been reading!


  1. Ooooh...I've never heard of Archer Mayor but that sounds intriguing!

    1. I'm enjoying the series - although since the first book was written in 1988 I keep scrutinizing everything like I'm the PC police. So far I haven't been offended. Ha!

  2. Four books in September?! took me three months plus to read five.

    1. I think it's because my thumb was bothering me so much that I deleted the games from my phone, forcing me to do something else (read!) during all the little waiting moments where I would usually play a word game or solitaire.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!

2023 Project 365 – Week Thirty-eight

I think it might be undeniably fall now. I mean, meteorologically and calendarically (yes, I know that’s not a word). Also, it’s been cooler...
