1. THE SECRET ADVERSARY. Oh man. The cover available in Goodreads is hilarious!! And, while wildly improbable, I always enjoy the adventures of Tommy and Tuppence. Haven't read this one in probably 15 years, but really enjoyed it on audio.

  2. FEVER. This is a review title (comes out next month). Kind of The Road-y (father and son are traveling South Africa in the wake of a terrible plague which has killed 95% of people), but they stop and build a Utopian community in the heart of South Africa, gathering hundreds of other survivors.

  3. FUZZY NATION. I love John Scalzi - he writes super funny sci fi. And this one is narrated by Wil Wheaton, which makes it even more delightful.

  4. THE FOUR TENDENCIES. I liked this, but didn't love it. (Basically it's not completely groundbreaking if you've read her other books, but it was interesting.)

  5. LOST LUGGAGE. For review. Reminded me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. Plucky Brooklyn travel agent ends up on adventures in Tanzania, trying to help clients who were arrested for smuggling.

  6. NORTHANGER ABBEY. I've only read Northanger Abbey once before. Listened on audio this time, and couldn't stop laughing. Something about the audio makes Austen's tongue-in-cheek omniscience even funnier.

  7. TOTALLY HIS. I never used to read romances, but in recent years I've found myself reading more of them. Pretty sure I'm just escaping politics/the news. 😜

  8. THE HOROLOGICON Fascinating, and laugh-out-loud funny. Not what you'd expect from an etymology book!

  9. THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO I couldn't put this one down. Lived up to the hype for me - completely mesmerizing.

  10. ALONG THE INFINITE SEA Just finished this one yesterday! My best read of August so far, and one of my top 5 for the year. I really enjoyed the first Schuyler sisters book, was meh about book 2, and almost didn't read this one. But I'm so glad I did! 💜

  11. THE ANNAM JEWEL. Eh, this was overwrought and predictable. Wentworth's Miss Silver mysteries are much better.

  12. I liked OF MESS AND MOXIE a lot! Listening to the audiobook is like listening to a chatty friend. 🙂 Jen Hatmaker went off-script several times ("Ok listeners..." then a little tangent... then "and now back to the book"). Also you could hear her get choked up at a touching spot or two, which made it seem even more personal. Highly recommended!

  13. THE HATE U GIVE
    Static
    Heartbreaking, brilliant, tragic, funny, and smart. One of the best books I've read in years.
