August Wrapup 2015
Another month has come and gone. August as you well know was Utah Book Month. A month dedicated to books written by Utah authors. First off, I just want to give a huge shout out to Suey, Jenni Jessica and Kami. These wonderful book bloggers are IRL friends as well a amazing bloggers. They put in so much time and effort to make this Utah Book Month absolutely awesome. They organized challenges and Twitter chats with awesome authors like Sara Zarr, Sara B Larson, Julianne Donaldson and Courtney Alameda. And they planned an awesome IRL Utah Blogger/Author/Writer party. These girls always do such a wonderful job organizing something that they get absolutely nothing back from. You go girls!
So part of Utah Book Month is reading as many books written by Utah authors as you can. Sadly, I only read three books by Utah authors and one book not by a Utah author. Here they are.
Magic realism at its finest. Seriously, read this on and then you can thank me.
Not In The Script (Utah Author)
Not enough plot but a cute enough romance.
Stitching Snow (Utah Author)
Like The Lunar Chronicles? This Snow White retelling will satisfy for sure!
Transparent (Utah Author)
Sketchy writing but character and story so awesome, you won't care.
There you have it. Favorite of the month was Bone Gap. Least favorite was Not In The Script.
I don't usually make reading plans but this month I'll be reading The Girl On The Train for book club and Poison by my awesome book blogging buddy Lan!Can't wait.
