August 2019 Reads

August 48 Red at the Bone Jacqueline Woodson
49 The Nickel Boys Colson Whitehead
50 Macbeth  Jo Nesbo
51 The Better Sister Alafair Burke
52 Virgil Wander Leif Enger
53 A Better Man Louise Penny

The Nickel Boys make my heart hurt. Even though it is a work of fiction, I, unfortunately, know that much of it probably really happened.  Colton Whitehead is an incredible writer!

“Enger deserves to be mentioned alongside the likes of Richard Russo and Thomas McGuane. Virgil Wander is a lush crowd-pleaser about meaning and second chances and magic. And in these Trumpian times, isn’t that just the kind of book and protagonist we’re all searching for?” — New York Times Book Review.

Louise Penny’s novels are unique for how seamlessly they straddle the line between charmingly small-town mysteries and big-city police procedurals.  A Better Man is not to be missed.
