I’m having a hard time believing it’s already August. There’s less than a month until I’m back at work!! I saw an image on Instagram this morning by @letterfolk with a quote that said:
“How is it already August…
Tomorrow is basically September.
It’s already 2019.
Happy New Year.”
That pretty much sums up how I’m feeling. Time flies! I had a fantastic reading month in July, and I’m hoping to do the same this month, before work gets going again and I start my Master’s.
So, without further ado, here’s my August TBR.
A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas
How They Met – David Levithan
A Man Called Ove – Fredrik Backman
The Sky is Everywhere – Jandy Nelson
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo – Amy Schumer
Fierce Kingdom – Gin Phillips
The Boat People – Sharon Bala
Precious Cargo – Craig Davidson
Tarzan of the Apes – Edgar Rice Burroughs
A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini
Hollow City – Ransom Riggs (I accidentally put Library of Souls, book 3, in the photo, but I haven’t read book 2 yet)
Lion – Saroo Brierley
P.S. I Still Love You – Jenny Han
The Fledgling – Jane Langton (The Hall Family Chronicles #4)
The Fragile Flag – Jane Langton (The Hall Family Chronicles #5)
The Time Bike – Jane Langton (The Hall Family Chronicles #6)
A Dance with Dragons – George R. R. Martin
How I chose
I decided to go for a huge stack so that I could mood read from it this month. Mood reading worked really well for me last month, even though I didn’t officially choose a TBR. I also wanted to diversify my list a bit more and read some Canadian Literature (CanLit).
Where I’m at, and what I’m looking forward to!
I started reading The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo on the last day of July, and I’m almost done. Andrew and I are heading to Seattle to see the Jays-Mariners series today, so I don’t know how much reading I’ll get done, but we’ll see!
I think I’m most excited to read the CanLit (The Boat People, Precious Cargo) and the diverse reads (A Thousand Splendid Suns, Lion) on this list.
My classic choice for the month
Since March, I’ve attempted to read one classic per month. This month I’ve chosen Tarzan of the Apes! Should be fun!
Even though it’s a purposely big TBR for mood reading…
I still think I have a pretty good chance of finishing these because I’m still off work for summer!
Time to finish my packing and choose my weekend book list!
Happy reading, book badgers!
