August TBR.


I know this is a week late but better late than never I guess… I have read two and a bit books this month but only one of them is actually in the TBR pile… One I totally forgot about and the other one I was reading at the time and it slipped my mind.

I’ve read The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye and The Student by Iain Ryan. I enjoyed both of them but I did like The Crown’s Game more. I’m currently reading Darien: Empire of Salt by C.F. Iggulden. This is the first book in a new YA fantasy trilogy/series. I’m enjoying this too but I just haven’t been in the mood to read so I’m kind of struggling with it. I don’t think it’s the book though.

Then there’s the books on my TBR that I haven’t gotten to yet. My next read will be I DGLyLltVoAAjiAtHave No Secrets by Penny Joelson. This sounds really good and I can’t wait to pick it up. It will also be my third book for ARC August.

A few of the books on this month’s TBR were also on my July TBR… I have been reading really slowly lately. My new medication makes me nauseous and I just can’t read when I feel like throwing up all the time. But I’m hoping to actually read Godblind, Midnight Jewel and Song of the Current this month.

It’s kind of an ambitious TBR pile considering my reading has been slowing down but whatever. We’ll find out how many I’ll actually get through at the end of the month.

What’s on your TBR for August?

July Wrap Up & August TBR.


I read more than I thought I had in July. Towards the end of the month I had a horrible reading slump but I don’t think I did too badly. I managed to read nine books in July.

See How They Run by Ally Carter – ★★★★/5
Dark Tide by Jennifer Donnelly – ★★★★/5
The Girls by Emma Cline – ★★★/5
Awaken by G.R. Thomas – ★★★★/5
Foxlowe by Eleanor Wasserberg – ★★★/5
The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North – ★★★/5
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – ★★★★★/5
The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey – ★★★★★/5

This month I haven’t really got my TBR together yet because I’m joining one read-a-thon and probably ARC August (again) so I have to figure those out first. But I do have some book at the top of my TBR that I shared the other day. Not pictured was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because I didn’t have it at the time.


I’m currently reading And I Darken and I’m really enjoying it so far. I don’t know when I’ll get to the others but I want to read them sometime during August.
