Happy autumn, dear readers!
I’m going to level with you: we do not have a ton of August updates on the Page and Prose website. As it happened, I had a personal family tragedy last month, which is also why my wrap-up post is a bit late. Nonetheless, we still have a few updates to pass along!
First off, if you aren’t already following us on Instagram, you are missing out! Hailey has been curating some beautiful book photography for the P&P Instagram page, which you can find here. Throughout August, we also posted some short reviews, and kept building out the community with fun discussion questions. Drop by, have a chat, send us a message!
For the same aforementioned personal family reasons, we do not have a monthly buddy read for August. We’ll be posting our next buddy read, namely City of Masks by Mary Hoffman, in September. Meanwhile, check out our full review for our previous buddy read, namely Cherie Dimaline’s The Marrow Thieves, which can be found here !
Hailey and I continue to update our reading challenges, and we’re doing rather well if I do say so myself! You can check out the updated list for the 2021 Indigo Reading Challenge here, and our updated list for the 52 Book Club Reading Challenge is here.
In some book-related news: Kit Rocha’s second novel in the Mercenary Librarians series was released on August 31, and I am very, very excited to read it. I have struggled with dystopian fiction since the world was hit by a plague, but I find post-apocalyptic literature strangely reassuring.
Second book news: the trailer for Amazon’s Wheel of Time series was released recently — and it looks rather good! I read the first three or four books of the series, and I don’t think I’ll finish the series (I’m sorry, but Rand is SUCH an idiot). Having said that, I’m going to give the TV show a shot.
As I said at the top of this post, it is officially autumn and the weather is reflecting it! I am in the mood for pumpkin spice drinks, candlelight, and autumnal books. Do you have any recommendations for Hailey or me, readers?
May you enjoy all your bookish endeavours!
