My Top 3 Books in August

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I missed the last post. A short trip to the seaside.

Here is something new I decided to try. From now on, I pick my three favorite books of the month and give a short summary of why.

  1. The Science of Storytelling by Will Storr. The reason I picked this as my August favorite was that it is not only practical for anyone wishing to write, but it also tells a lot about our minds and how we interact with the world. I loved this book.
  2. This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. What a beautifully written story which kept me engaged from the start to the finish. I notice thinking back of the book sometimes. How well written, sad, and elegant it was.
  3. The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman. Ever since I read this book, I haven’t been able to look birds the same way. Now I see reason, intelligence, and beauty behind their actions. At my trip to the seaside, I annoyed the heck out of my mother-in-law by marveling the seagulls. She couldn’t understand how anyone could appreciate such an ugly and annoying bird. I bet they are thinking the same of us.

Have a lovely bookish day!
