August month, for me, when I look back now, can be termed as a “month of thrillers” – I binge read a whole new series, thanks to a readathon; read a violently melancholic thriller that didn’t let go of me and to temper such heavy reads, found myself falling for some hilarious wit repertoire in a romantic comedy series set in Victorian England.

While the quantity of my reading went down in the month of August; the quality of what I read exceeded my expectations – so you won’t find me complaining *grins*

Just to inform you; all the books mentioned below aren’t sorted in a particular, I recommend all of them, equally albeit for very different reasons.
If you have read any of these books and would like to recommend any similar books; please do so with ardent enthusiasm – I am used to my overflowing TBR shelves cursing by now 😃
  • AMOS DECKER SERIES by David Balddaci

A football player turned detective with unique condition and a traumatic event that brings him to his lowest point until the quest for answers in the murders that destroyed his life breathes new life into his thirst for knowledge – intrigued enough yet?

So was I! So, I jumped at the chance to participate in the readathon for David Baldacci hosted by the team at Pan Macmillan India for #BaldacciMonth. All the books in the series, 5 currently, can be read as standalones, though your experience will be further enhanced, if you read them in order!

A full review will be posted soon!


A hilariously entertaining comedy series set in Victorian England; all about misfit young ladies who defy the societal norms – and the grumpy, yet charming men who worship the ground they walk on.

Pick up this series if you are in a mood for a light – hearted read and if you are already a romance reader, then this series SHOULD be n your immediate TBR!

(for The Duchess Deal!)

(for The Governess Game)

(for The Wallflower Wager)

  • KNIFE (Harry Hole #12) by Jo Nesbo

The newly released addition to the bestselling Norwegian Thriller Series – Harry Hole Series by Jo Nesbo – KNIFE, where things get a whole lot personal for our protagonist, the ever green Harry Hole – the plot is lot darker and melancholic than the previous ones; and with a lot of twists and turns male for a nail biting climax that even a seasoned reader of thriller series would not see coming!

            A total of 9 books in the recommended list for the month of August – it was a good reading month and here’s to hoping and wishing for a better reading month in September for you and me both ❤
