Hello there lovely reader! In today’s blog post I will be listing all of the books I want to read in August. I feel like I’ve said this in all of my last TBR posts, but I once again can’t believe it’s already the next month! Even though 2020 is quite the shitty year, it is flying by. Nevertheless, let’s get into my August TBR!
I have two books that I’m carrying over from my July TBR so I’ll start with those. First off I want to read We Were Restless Things by Cole Nagamatsu. I really want to get my review for that Netgalley arc up towards the end of August so I’ll have to read it in August. And then the other carry over from July is Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. That one is not fully a carry over since I stated that I’ll only read it if I can get to it, but I didn’t get to it, so I’ll be reading Lolita in August for sure!
Then I also have two books on my TBR that are for readalong type things. The first one of those is A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. Which I’ll be reading for the readalong hosted by Sabine and Yasmin. You can find more information for their readalong here. The second book for a readalong is The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin, which I’ll be reading for Ashleigh’s, from A Frolic Through Fiction, Patreon book club.
Now I only have three more books left on my August TBR, and these are the books for my Themed TBR blog post that will go up at the beginning of September. I don’t think the theme is going to be hard to guess, but I wanted to share these in my monthly TBR anyway. I’ll be reading Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki, This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan.
I won’t be participating in any actual readathons in August, which is quite a shocker, because I’ve been participating in a lot of readathons these past few months. However, there is the Basically Readathon by Basically Britt which is a 24 hour readathon on August 8th and in case I don’t have to work, I will be participating in that one. The challenge for that readathon is to read a book that’s been on your TBR for ages, and I’ll be reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab anyway this coming month, so in case I participate, I’ll be reading it that Saturday.
So my August TBR is not very lengthy or ambitious. But that’s because I won’t be home and thus hardly able to read for two weeks of August. In case I do get all of these books read and I have some spare time I’ll either already start with my September TBR (yes, I do plan parts of my TBR’s way in advance) or let my mood decide what I read!
Don’t forget to tell me what you’ll be reading in August!
