Reading List for August 2021

It’s hard to believe that it is already September and that summer will be officially coming to a close later this month. For meteorologists though, September 1st marks the start of meteorological fall.

August was a busy reading/listening month for me. You may notice that there are a number of items that appeared on earlier lists. No, this is not an error. I did in fact re-listen to a number of books that I listened to just earlier this year.

The number of the books that I listened to earlier this year is 13. The reason for this is two-fold. First, someone brought up the Bobiverse books, and after they mentioned it, I wanted to listen to them again.

I also re-listened to the Interdependency Trilogy and the Old Man’s War Series, both by John Scalzi. I love the Interdependency series and then once I started listening to the series, I wanted to listen to the Old Man’s War series again, so I did.

I listened to 23 audiobooks total in August and seven of these were first-time listens. If you want something that is completely ridiculous, take a listen to Space Force by Jeremy Robinson, be forewarned that it meant for adults, due to language. It does not contain trigger warnings.

However, if you check out Nameless: A Renegade Star Story, be aware that there is a trigger warning, there are some major adult themes.
