Monthly Motif August Highlights {Genre Jumble}

august-highlightsOur August Monthly Motif Challenge was Genre Jumble. We hope you all had fun mixing it up this month and trying something new. Kim – My book for August was Please Ignore Vera Dietz, A.S. King. It’s a contemporary book and I’m not a big fan of contemporary. I thought I might like this one because it involves a mysterious death. I was right. I did enjoy this book. I read it pretty quickly and found it sad, humorous, and thought provoking.

Tanya – My choice was Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty, which is a contemporary novel. Like Kim, I don’t read much contemporary, but I thought I’d enjoy this as I’ve read books by Moriarty before – Big Little Lies and The Husband’s Secret, and I thoroughly enjoyed both of them. Well … I really liked Truly Madly Guilty, but not as much as the other two. Still, I’d definitely recommend it.
