Monthly Wrap Up: August

Posted on September 2, 2021 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Wrap-up / 14 Comments

Indeed, I am happy to see the back of August.  First, my heart goes out to our neighbours in Haiti. We felt the effects of  the earthquake that struck Haiti. A scary experience for sure, one which I hope never to repeat. Soon after we had a visit from Tropical Storm Grace.  Although it passed on the outskirts of the island, it still did some serious damage. Then, before we had time to get over Grace, Ida dumped heavy rains on the island before moving on and becoming a hurricane.  In addition to all of this, I lost a relative and three co-workers to COVID.

COVID cases are once again on the rise. We were placed on semi-lockdown for two weeks, which involved seven no movement days. While on the days we were allowed to move around curfew began at 7:00pm and ended at 5:00 am. 

I read twelve (12) books in and posted  reviews for ten.  Here is the list of books that were read and reviewed.  What If You and Me was read in July.

  1. [3 Aug] What If You & Me by Roni Loren ★★★★★
  2. [5 Aug] Sprinkles and Sea Serpents by Danielle Garrett ★★★½
  3. [9 Aug] Such a Good Wife by Seraphina Nova Glass ★★★★
  4. [10 Aug] A Thin Disguise by Catherine Bybee ★★★
  5. [16 Aug] The Wildest Ride by Marcella Bell ★★★★½
  6. [19 Aug] Sweet, Sexy Heart by Melissa Foster ★★★★★
  7. [23 Aug] Dirty Desires by Nicole James ★★★★
  8. [24 Aug] Play For Me by Tam Derudder Jackson ★★★½
  9. [25 Aug] Sing For Me by Tam Derudder Jackson ★★★½
  10. [26 Aug] Muses & Melodies by Rebecca Yarros ★★★★½

  1. Sounds like August was tough ((HUGS)). Covid is relentless. We got dumped on by Ida last night. Floods, tornados, no power, but today, stunning weather and my power came back in time for me to logon for work. I need to try a Melissa Foster book. There are million of them at my library.

  2. Oh no I am so sorry to hear about your losses that you have had. And yeah Covid is on the rise again.. I honestly think we will have it longterm., I just think the symptoms eventually will get to the point of the common cold. That is just my guess though. So many sad things occurring right now. Hope you stay safe and well darling.
