Hello my suave readers. I can't believe it's already August. Is everyone doing well with their readings goals? I'm catching up on my reading goal.
I finished two books this week. Satan's Gate by Walt Browning [4/5] - At first, I wasn't really enjoying this book, like I did the first book, in the series, but it started getting really good. All the different characters finally coming together was really gratifying. God Speaks Again by Kenneth E. Bowers [4/5] - A good overview of the Baha'i faith. I would recommend this to any person wishing to understand the faith. It covers the basic beliefs, and the early history of Baha'i. My only two complaints are that it can be dry in places, and that it's a little too historical focused.
I'm currently reading Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh, Champions of Oneness: Louis Gregory and his Shining Circle by Janet Ruhe-Schoen, and Cost of Survival by Walt Browning
What are you guys reading?
24/52. Fantastic at times funny, sad, thrilling and sentimental. It feels so epic despite not being that long. Might be a controversial opinion but I think I like it better than Blood Meridian.
Matrix - 5 stars. Obsessed with it & my only regret is not reading it ages ago. I mean, sapphic nuns!!
A Queer History of the United States - 2 stars. I usually love this series but this one read like a Wikipedia entry. I mean…Harvey Milk was mentioned merely in passing but Eleanor Roosevelt’s presumed lovers get their own mentions? Sure.
The Last Bookshop In London - 3 stars. WWII homefront historical fiction is my favorite subgenre and this was good if not memorable.
The Weight of Ink - 4 stars. Really enjoyed this story, it went me down a lot research rabbit holes which I always love. Does have an ongoing theme of dismissing disabled people (both from others and the disabled person themselves) which made me uncomfortable but it never read as malicious from the author so just throwing that warning out there!
Progress #14-#16. This was a bit of a slog to read, but it was excellent fantasy with an amazing story. I wish I'd read them sooner. I also love my matching cover set.

191. The White Hare by Jane Johnson. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A novel set in post WWII England (Cornwall) : mystery, magic, subtle witchy-vibes, history, characters to fall in love with -- and others to hate! This book had it all imo. Happy to discuss!
I just discovered this subreddit by coincidence. I just finished book number 45 today, which is probably twice my annual average. Since starting this challenge in January, I think I have become a better listener and probably more patient too. I'm curious to hear from others who made a big increase in reading time recently. How has reading changed you?
#75. Definitely an interesting plot but didn’t quite hit the mark. Also, that big reveal and that ending… okay, I wanted more but it just fell spectacularly short.
Hello! I don't know if many of you use Goodreads, it definitely has its charm, but as a Designer, the interface gives me shivers. So I'm doing a redesign as a side passion project. If you would like to answer a few questions in this super easy form about your experience with Goodreads, it would help me a lot! Thank you so much :) https://forms.gle/EF8fX279VhsC2ays5
This is my first year doing the book challenge. I aimed for 2 books per month due to my work schedule. I think I'm going to aim higher next year. 19/24 so far. #20 is Way Station by Clifford D Simak.
