August Wrap-Up – Books I didn’t review

I never did a month end wrap-up of books I read, but I though I do one for August. It was a different reading month, because most of the books I read I didn’t review and I’m not planning to review. They weren’t ARCs so I don’t feel like I need to review them, they weren’t’ particular bad to stir my emotions into writing a rant. Some were tackling serious issues that I just didn’t feel a need to write about, I prefer to keep my thoughts to myself on those book.


Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

My Rating: ★★★★★

This book is amazing! It tackles a important subjects or race, prejudice, judicial system, and it’s all well done. This book had a great impact on me, this is why I finally picked up next book on my list – Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race.


Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

My Rating: ★★★★☆

A lot of books or articles I read that deal with race issue focus on America, this book focuses on race issues in Great Britain. Highly recommended. I listed to audiobook that is narrated by author herself.


No One Tells You This by Glynnis MacNicol

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Well done memoir that I’d recommend to all the single ladies out there.


Żmijowisko by Wojciech Chmielarz

My Rating: ★★★★★

Amazing polish thriller. I bough this book on book fair and even got author’s autograph.


Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta

My Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I didn’t really enjoy this book, it was fine at times but overall – nothing to write home about.

    I read Small Great Things last year and it really opened my eyes to white privilege and how everything is geared towards white people… like white people are the default. Such a great read!
    I’ve never heard of WHY I’M NO LONGER TALKING TO WHITE PEOPLE ABOUT RACE. I will have to check it out! I’ve never read a book that addresses race relations not about the U.S.

      Highly recommend ‘Why I’m no longer…’, most of the books that tackle race related issues are Americanocentric, and we loose touch with how things look like in other countries.
