In case you missed them, here’s a quick look at Book Club Mom’s posts in August.
I read five books this month, one up from my normal four.
Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea by Steven Callahan – 5 stars. I’ve always liked survival stories and became totally engrossed in Steven Callahan’s first-hand account of how he survived for more than two months, alone in the North Atlantic.
Five Total Strangers by Natalie D. Richards – 4.5 stars. This Young Adult thriller is just as good or better than many of the adult thrillers I’ve recently read!
Last Summer on State Street by Toya Wolfe – 4 stars. I was immediately affected when I listened to the audiobook of Toya Wolfe’s debut novel (published June 2022) about four young girls who live in the projects in Chicago and even more so when I learned that the author grew up in these projects.
The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex – 4 stars. This is a slow-burn atmospheric psychological drama that looks at the effects of isolation and separation.
The Party by Robyn Harding – 3.5 stars. About a month ago, I was getting a haircut and my stylist, knowing I have a book blog and work in a library, recommended this book, about a sweet sixteen party that went terribly wrong. I find books like this hard to resist and I wasn’t disappointed.
I made two YouTube videos and in one of them, I play the piano for you. I’m busy practicing and have a few more pieces that are almost ready to go.

Many thanks for the recap, Barbara. I was recently looking for some of your suggestions, so having this list is terrific!
A great load of books this month. 🙂
Lovely! I hope you do more YouTube videos, especially the ones where you take a bunch of books at random and decide which one you’ll read!
Thank you, Davida! I’ll do a new one of those soon!
A busy month, Barbara. I saw you had a new YT piano video. I will be watching shortly.
It was busy! Thank you, Robbie!
