Books Read August 2021: 189-201

August was very busy with a second child moving in, so this might be my lowest book count yet. But I did get some great Balkans reads in, and some great Women in Translation titles in.

A gentle reminder that all reviews can still be seen on my Goodreads profile (the review will be with the book; the format will be specified unless it's in print.) And the books with green outlines are my 5-star reads for the month!
