August 2014 Reading Queue

 Reading Queue is a meme hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story.  Click the covers to read more about the books I list below.

 Bye Bye July!!!
I didn't get to read as much as I wanted to this month.  I think I have not been in a reading mood as much as I thought I would be.  I started a few books and put them down.  For some reason, I thought I would have a few of my DNF books completed.  LOL!  Nope! Didn't happen.

What is the reading queue all about?
Reading Queue is a monthly meme where you share what books you plan to read for the month. You can hop to other blogs and see what others are reading and maybe find someone reading the same thing as you! Or you can ask for people to vote on what you should read next if you can’t decide.

So here is what I have lined up for the month of August.

Book Club Pick for August

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?
For Reading Challenges
I didn't get to it last month so I will try and do it this month.
Just Because
This is a book my honey and I are reading together.  Since it is a year long process we will not be done until 12/31/14.  We are 4 days in and so far it's ok.  There are sections we both don't agree with and I am don't understand why one book would talk about healing a broken relationship one day and communicating about sex the next day.  This isn't a review but ...dang. Hmm!
Getting Off My DNF List
 Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford
I finished about half of this audiobook then my Overdrive app crashed and the audiobook was missing.  Gone. Forever!
My DNF pile seems to be growing and growing.  So I will make a real effort to get one or two of them completed.  
Extra Credit
(ARC) Three Strong Women by Marie NDiaye
I have a ARC from two(?) years ago.  I need to get to this one.

Finished Last Month
