August’s Reading Challenge is to read a novel that it took you a while to decide to read.
Have you ever run across a novel that you’re maybe interested in, but something holds you back from taking the plunge? I’ll confess that I am typically pretty sure one way or another whether I want to read a book. But every once in a while, I just I keep coming back to a book trying to decide whether I really want to read it. It took me a long time to read Where the Crawdads Sing (liked but didn’t love) and The Silent Patient (I kicked myself for not reading it sooner).
I had the same trouble with Razorblade Tears by S.A. Crosby. Most aspects of the storyline really appealed to me. So what kept me from fully committing to reading it? I am not a huge fan of revenge/vengeance story arcs. But something kept drawing me back to it, and I finally decided to get over myself 😀
Now I have low expectations I’ll have the free time to read it, but I at least wanted to explain how I came up with this month’s challenge.

I am looking forward to your selection!
