Best of the Bunch (August 2021)

Best of the Bunch header

Today I'm sharing the best book I read in August.

Of the 10 books I read this month, I had one 5-star read, so that's my Best of the Bunch!

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake was a reread of a favorite, which I had nominated for one of my book clubs. I just love these characters so much. On this reread, I chose to experience the book via audio, and it was like I was watching a movie unspool before my eyes. Wingfield has managed to write a book that touches on the darkest parts of human nature — domestic violence, animal abuse, sexual assault — and make it unbelievably heartwarming and uplifting. All the members of my book club loved the book and couldn't believe they hadn't heard of it before!

What is the best book you read this month? Let me know in comments, or write your own post and link up below!

Looking back:
One year ago I was reading: Thank You for Voting and Felix Ever After
Five years ago I was reading: The Martian and A Prayer for Owen Meany
Ten years ago I was reading: Scale Development
