AUGUST READS

August was a busy month with limited time for reading, but I was able to get to several amazing books all the same. 

1. Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker


This was an easy 5/5 for me

I've always been a fan of a good murder mystery, but I've never read one quite like this. The historical fiction angle captured me a lot more than I thought it would and the character-centric narrative was absolutely brilliant. Will definitely be continuing this series. 


2. The Tale of the Border Knight


5/5 for an enchanting return to Keymark

I was excited to take a quick trip back to Keymark and boy did this little novella deliver! It packs a ton in without ever feeling rushed and was just nonstop fun from cover to cover. 

3. Deathless Beast


A worthwhile 4/5 read

While I am not always a fan of the epic fantasy subgenre, Meredith's almost-cozy writing style and magnificently realized characters made this a truly special adventure. 
 

BONUS: Agile 2 (Chapters 1-3)


This currently sitting somewhere within the  2/5-3/5 range for me

This is a newish read along with my coworkers that I am very far behind on. So far, it has not really impressed me. The first two chapters read kind of like a conversation with a coworker who complains a lot and brings up some good points, but has nothing helpful to offer. The third and forth chapters are similarly unhelpful, but are at least a lot less whiny and they bring up some interesting food for thought. I'm curious to see if things improve as the book moves along. 

Going into September, I will be participating in a new Discord Readathon that is probably a bit aggressive for me. I won't make the full eight-book maximum, but I will try to get reasonably close at least.
