Last month was strange because I was very busy.... and yet I read a ton of books. Somehow. It was also strange because I actually read quite a few "new" books - usually I don't get around to reading things until months after they're released. Sometimes years.
Anyway, on to the books I read and enjoyed (although - in the case of the first book - "enjoyed" wouldn't be the right word).
An Untamed State by Roxane Gay / Landline by Rainbow Rowell / California by Edan Lepucki / Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican
A Conspiracy of Faith by Jussi Adler-Olsen / The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes / We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
The Matchmaker by Stella Gibbons / The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach / The Vanishing of Katharina Linden by Helen Grant
