August in Review

I started school this month, and have felt it in terms of leisure reading time. There definitely is not as much right now.
The books I did manage to get through:
1. The Daughters Take the Stage by Joanna Philbin
2. Eight Keys by Suzanne Lefleur
3. What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
4. Burnt Mountain by Ann Rivers Siddons
5. Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
6. The Summer Before Boys by Nora Raleigh Baskin
7. Bent Road by Lori Roy
8. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
9. Kindred Spirits by Sarah Strohmeyer
10. Water Balloon by Audrey Vernick
11. A Good Hard Look by Ann Napolitano
12. Next to Love by Ellen Feldman
13. Turn of Mind by Alice La Plante
14. Grounded by Kate Klise
15. Ten Rules for Living With My Sister by Ann M. Martin
16. This Beautiful Life by Helen Schulman
17. Small Acts of Amazing Courage by Gloria Whelan
18. The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt
19. Close Your Eyes by Amanda Eyre Ward
20. Do You Know the Monkey Man? by Dori Hillstad Butler

10 of 20 books were middle grade/young adult, 10 were adult
1 book was written by a male author, 19 by females
5 of the 20 books were from my shelves, 15 were library books
All 20 books were fiction, no non-fiction

We have a lot of overlap in our August reading. I was so intrigued by that plural third person sisters narration in The Weird Sisters but in the end, didn't really love the book. What did you think?

A number of your books are next up in my pile, and I'm halfway through THE SUMMER BEFORE BOYS right now. I think I'll just check back soon to see what I should be reading next month...
