When I look back over the books I read in August, I know each of these stories enriched my life in some way. In fact, as a group, this may be my favorite collection of five books I’ve read in a row. And that’s saying something.
The Girl With The Louding Voice is a debut novel with a brave young protagonist. This was my “mystery date with a book” selection chosen at Barnes & Noble Fayetteville. (If you don’t remember this fun experience, read about it HERE.)

The great takeaway here is that there are a bazillion fabulous books out there still waiting for me. Also, just because a book is a new release or on the best seller list, doesn’t necessarily make it half as good as some of those found on the shelves of a used bookstore. With respect to The Paris Wife , it has been on my list for some time. The day I found it in a neighborhood Little Free Library was a lucky day for me!
