I’m just going to come right out and say it: I have no idea what I’m going to read this month. Usually, I have an idea of what books I want to get to, but this time… I just don’t know. I’m participating in the Make Me Read It Readathon so I know I will at least be getting to the two books picked out for me for that. I’m participating in ARC August too so I want to get through several ARCs. But I also have 5 library books taken out that I want to read so you can probably see where my indecision comes from. Anyway, I’ve put together a “kind of” TBR. Basically, this is a list of a bunch of books that I would like to read and as I go through the month, I’ll probably just be picking randomly from the list according to my mood. I know for a fact that I will not be reading all of these, but this can still give you all an idea of some of the books I might be getting to soon.
- The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
- Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller
- The Lost Causes by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz
I actually already finished Upside. I started it on the 31st and then finished it on Wednesday because it was amazing and adorable and I couldn’t put it down. I’m reading Mask of Shadows right now and loving it so far. Sal is awesome. The Lost Causes is an eARC I have that I’m going to try to get to soon. I haven’t heard much about it so I’m not really sure what to expect!
An Ember in the Ashes and The Lie Tree are the two books that you all chose for me to read during the Make Me Read It Readathon which starts on Sunday. I’ll be prioritizing Ember and then depending on how soon in the week I finish that, I may or may not read The Lie Tree. Nyxia is another eARC I have and so far, I’ve heard good things so I’m really looking forward to it.
- The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin
- Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali
- Rend the Dark by Mark Gelineau and Joe King
The Big F is a book I will definitely be reading, probably towards the end of the month, since I’m part of the blog tour for it. Saints and Misfits is one the library books I have and Rend the Dark is a very old eARC I still have to read. I’m considering finally reading that this month because it’s really short and will help me with ARC August.
- This Impossible Light by Lily Myers
- Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig
- Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau
All three of these are library books that I really want to read. I hadn’t heard of This Impossible Light before I saw it at the library, but it’s a novel written in verse which I love so I couldn’t resist grabbing it. The other two have been on my radar for quite awhile and I’m happy that I finally have the chance to read them. Hopefully, I’ll actually be able to.
The Pain Eater is a completely random book that I picked up at the library and it’s pretty short so I might be able to squeeze it in at some point this month. Fortitude Smashed is a book I’m hoping to review in the first week of September, so I want to read it towards the end of the month.
So there you have it! The millions of books I want to read this month. Like I said, I know for a fact that I won’t get to all of these, but I just can’t make up my mind right now on what I actually want to read. Too many books and not nearly enough time!
