2021 READING CHALLENGE | WHAT I'VE READ IN AUGUST

Despite it being a busy month with it being the summer holidays, and having Blake to keep occupied. I have managed to read 3 books this month, 4 if you include the one I'm currently getting through. Most of them are summer reads which I've been drawn to. 


The Castaways by Lucy Clarke

This is no ordinary summer read. This is a mystery thriller about two sisters who's lives are forever changed by a plane crash. This is one twisty and gripping crime thriller that kept me guessing.




The confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins 
1826, London is in a frenzy. Crowds are gathering at the gates of the Old Bailey to watch Frannie Langton go on trial for the murder of Mr and Mrs Benham whom she was maid to.  The testimonies against her are damning - slave, whore, seductress. And they may be the truth. But they are not the whole truth. For the first time Frannie must tell her story. 





Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid 
Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever. Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them... and what they will leave behind.



The Island Home by Libby Page 
This is my current read that I'm slowly getting through. Lorna's world is small but safe. She loves her daughter, and the two of them is all that matters. But after nearly twenty years, she and Ella are suddenly leaving London for the Isle of Kip, the tiny remote Scottish island where Lorna grew up.

Alice's world is tiny but full.
She loves the community on Kip, her yoga classes drawing women across the tiny island together. Now Lorna's arrival might help their family finally mend itself - even if forgiveness means returning to the past...

So with two decades, hundreds of miles and a lifetime's worth of secrets between Lorna and the island, can coming home mean starting again?
