Just One Reader's Opinion!

Quick Lit

August 2022

I’ve been reading so much, but I don’t always feel like writing a full review for everything. I was inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Quick Lit posts, as well as Hannah at So Obsessed With‘s monthly Quick Lit posts, and decided to do something similar as a way to briefly discuss the books I read in a month but don’t write full reviews for.

My August reading was a bit better than July’s. I read 13 books, and I quite enjoyed the majority of them, so I’m happy with that!

I’ve reviewed four of my August reads here already:

For Butter or Worse, Erin La Rosa;

The Noh Family, Grace K. Shim;

A Flicker in the Dark, Stacy Willingham; and

Run Time, Catherine Ryan Howard.

I am going to review two e-ARCs I read last month on the blog likely next week (The Holiday Swap, Maggie Knox and Only a Monster, Vanessa Len). I also read two graphic novels/comics that I’m not reviewing (but I did rate them on Goodreads), but will mention here: How To Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You, Matthew Inman, and One Cup At a Time: A Cat’s Cafe Collection, Matt Tarpley.

So here are my thoughts on the rest of my August reads:

Teen Spirit, Francesca Lia Block (owned) – 2⭐

Nothing about this worked for me.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Shirley Jackson (owned) – 3⭐

I wanted to love this, given its status as a classic, but while I liked the atmosphere and the story in general, I thought it was really slow and not very interesting at times.

The Book of Cold Cases, Simone St. James (library) – 3.5⭐

This was a good, intriguing read that was a fun mix of murder mystery and ghost story.

The Walking Dead: Compendium Four, Robert Kirkman et al. (owned) – 3⭐

I didn’t realize when I started reading this that it was the final in the series, so I wasn’t totally prepared for the ending, but I have mixed feelings about it. I love the series generally, but my enthusiasm waned as it went on.

Paperbacks From Hell: The Twisted History of 70s and 80s Horror Fiction, Grady Hendrix (library) – 3⭐

This was a fun read with some great old covers.
