August 2022 – What Are You Reading?

August was the first month in a long time that I felt really good reading.  I read some interesting fiction, most notably the first few books of Benjamin Percy’s Comet Cycle, which were recommended to me by a friend at work.

Nonfiction books:

Fiction books:

  • A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow
  • The Ninth Metal by Benjamin Percy
  • Buffy: the Last Vampire Slayer by Casey Gilly, Joe Jaro and Joana Lafuente (graphic novel)
  • The Sugar Thief by Nancy Mauro
  • The Unfamiliar Garden by Benjamin Percy
  • Warriors: Into the Wild by Erin Hunter

My favourite was definitely The Unfamiliar Garden. I liked how the narrative was tighter than in The Ninth Metal.  I liked the characters a lot more.  And while I’m not really a horror reader, I enjoyed the horror elements of the plot.  The Unfamiliar Garden would definitely make a fantastic movie!

So what have you read over the last month?  What was your favourite book?
