Just about to head out the door for another weeding visit, so this'll have to be another short and sweet. Without further delay, then!
Book Pulse has the first best of month lists here, and also right here, and if you're not already signed up for their daily e-mail, what are you waiting for?
Meanwhile, The Millions has their Most Anticipated for the month, and Lit Hub shares 15 Book You Should Read This August.
In genre news, SBTB gathers up August's new romance releases, and CrimeReads looks at August's Best New Thrillers, and Booklist is putting a spotlight on SF/Fantasy and Horror.
Finally, #FridayReads: I've been reading Dear Mrs. Bird, by AJ Pearce, and in a slightly belated celebration of Shark Week, listening to the Inside Jaws podcast. Happy reading/listening!
