I’ve been wanting to share ideas for books for each month’s prompt for the Read Your Bookshelf Challenge and apparently it has taken me until August’s prompt to finally do so!

The prompt for August is to read a book with a body part in the title, and going through my shelves made me realize this was harder than I was expecting! I found a few books on my read shelves and a few more on my unread shelves to share though.

Oh, and because people ask me on a fairly regular basis, you are more than welcome to use library books to complete the prompts, it does not have to be just books you own.

Once you’ve read a book that fulfills the prompt, head over here to enter to win the $100 gift card giveaway!

I would love to hear the books you are using for this prompt, leave your title in the comments below!
