What Deanna Read #67: August 2021

Another month has gone by. What? Before we know it, we will be reading Christmas stories, putting up decorations, and eating Christmas cake.

It's been another quiet month for us. We've been in lockdown and today is day 32. A whole month in lockdown. It's no wonder I did a lot of reading. There wasn't much else to do. For fun (and sometimes it's serious), I've been doing a daily lockdown journal on my Facebook profile and just talking about life in lockdown in general. Some posts are funny, some posts are serious, but I'm trying to deal with current issues while reminding my friends and family to be kind and stay safe. These will be interesting to look back on once all of this has passed.

Here's what I read for the month.

Holy moly! It was a big reading month. I didn't realise how many books I read in August until I started putting this post together. I read ten more books last month than the month before.

For starters, I discovered a new to me author in Michele Mills. She writes sci-fi romance and I got quickly addicted to her style of writing. It started with Her Alien Priest which was short and sexy, and then I blew through what there was of the Fever Brothers series. What fun! I need to go back to read more of her books too. I've got a few already downloaded on my Kindle.

I continuted my obsession with Zoe Chant after discovering her last month too. I am making my way through the Fire and Rescue Shifters and other associated series in the recommended reading order so I'm jumping between a few interrelated series. I love the Shifter Kingdom books, especially Royal Guard Lion with their forbidden love.

Of course, TS Joyce knocked it out of the park with How It Was, Nuke's story. I am absolutely loving this series with all the heart and emotion, and a little bit of humor.

And finally, some crazy with another new to me author, Ashley Lyn. I started and finished reading her Welcome to Spartan series, with Love CrazyAccidental Heiress, and Shamus. They are so much fun. If you're looking for a laugh, I highly recommend this series.
That's it from me. What did you read this last month? Do leave a comment and let me know.

Stay tuned for what Helen read too.

    1. You have so many authors on there who are on my TBR. No clue when I'll ever get to them. I recently came across Leah Ashton and put her on my list to eventually read too.

  2. Fabulous Deanna

    And yes being in lockdown does give us more time to read and what is more you are enjoying the books you are reading and finding new to you authors bonus :)

    I had a good month in August as well :)

    Have Fun


    1. Yeah, it was a good reading month. You had a great month in August too.

  3. I thought you had read King of Eon?

    1. I did but it wasn't on Goodreads yet so it didn't end up being counted in this month. Fabulous book though. Such a great end to the series. It just released yesterday too.

    2. Yes, I got it yesterday, Monday. Next on my list to read

    3. Fantastic. I'm sure you will enjoy it. I think Anna paired King Gayel with the perfect woman.
