August 2020 Reading Round-up

Hello *waves like we’re in a Zoom meeting* IT’S SEPTEMBER! Jumpers and scarves and dark nights and candles and pumpkin spice everything! I much prefer Autumn to all other months so I am delighted it’s here (also delighted that we now only 4 months of 2020 left).

Anyway, welcome to a little round-up of all the books I somehow managed to read in August. It felt like a long and slow month reading wise but I seem to have managed to read 7 whole books during the month!

You may notice that other than Bang Bang, You’re Dead (new release, blog tour, criminally good book!) – there’s not a review posted for any of these. I’ve had a quiet month to myself: read what I wanted, when I wanted and felt no need to force my opinions upon you lot – you are welcome!

August 2020 Reads

  1. A Dark Matter by Doug Johnstone. I bought this when it came out and never quite got round to reading it. The Big Chill (his newest release) was published in August and that’s a pretty good reason to get caught up! First in The Skelf series and a great start!
  2. The Catch by T.M. Logan. I absolutely love T.M. Logan’s books. Love. Them. They are just wonderful to read – twisty but not so convoluted that you lose the thread. And with characters I personally really engage with. Especially true with The Catch… I challenge you not to be backing Ed at the end.
  3. May Day by Josie Jaffrey. This is for a blog tour! My wee review will be up on the 15th September. Josie very kindly sent me a copy of her book for review.
  4. Killian’s Dead by Josie Jaffrey. This is a very short story and a prequel to May Day. Standard for me – I read the prequel AFTER I’d read May Day. Because I am a genius.
  5. Beast by Matt Wesolowski. This was a 99p kindle deal a couple of months back I think. I enjoyed Beast so much that as soon as I finished it I ordered the Six Stories series (of which Beast is No. 4) from Bert’s Books. I’ll now get one a month for 4 months and will undoubtedly shout about them all.
  6. Bang Bang, You’re Dead by Evan Baldock – Red Dog Press Blog Tour. Red Dog were kind enough to send me an advance copy of this book for review.
  7. Killing Floor by Lee Child. I’ve read the Jack Reacher series with the exception of the most recent couple and decided it was high time I re-read them all. Killing Floor could have been a brand new book to me as I had absolutely no recollection of the story from first time round! Really enjoyed meeting Reacher again, he’s up there with Rebus as one of my all time favourite characters. Just, please, don’t mention Tom Cruise and Jack Reacher in the same sentence.

So, there you go. Seven books isn’t too shabby – let me know what you’ve been reading or if you’ve read any of these books – I wanna know 🙂


All the links to external sites are just that – links. I have no affiliation to them and just wanna share the bookish lurve y’all.
