Tackling My TBR: August 2020

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month.

I’ve taken a little break with my TBR jar since my classes have started up again. I noticed that the busier I get with classes, the least likely I am to read books that I’ve picked out of the jar. I seem to prefer mood reading when I’m taking classes. However, I still wanted to share a TBR with you because there’s some great books I’m excited to read this month.

Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegmund-Broka: I purchased this on a whim last year but the more I look at all their other books, the more I want to read them all. I told myself that I can’t buy any more of their books until I, at least, read one of them. The summer is always a great time to read some great contemporaries!

The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I was thinking of reading this for the Reading Rush readathon, for a book that I’ve already seen the movie of, but I ended up running out of time so I didn't get around to it last month. I adore this movie so I’m excited to finally get to it.

Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay: Finishing series is difficult, because it is so hard to say goodbye to the characters and story. This one has been sitting on my shelf for so long, I barely remember the first. The duology is a Romeo and Juliet retelling with vampires.

The Room on Rue Amelie by Kristin Harmel: I thought I’d trick myself into reading more historical fiction by putting this one on my tbr for the month. I rarely feel like reading historical fiction, and if I do, it is usually in the winter months. So there is a very slim chance I will read this.

Save the Date by Morgan Matson: After reading You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle, it really got me in the mood to read books about weddings. So, I’m looking to read Save the Date which follows the protagonist’s sister’s wedding, where everything that can go wrong, does.

Still on Top of the Pile

Wild Savage Stars by Kristina Perez: I meant to read this one last month but with the two readathons I was participating in; I didn’t get to it. The third book is releasing this month so I’d love to get to both of them and finish the trilogy. I just know that there’ll be tears at the end.

The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa: I raced through the first three books in The Iron Fey series and absolutely adored them. This series is entirely addictive. After this book, there’s a whole spin-off series that I intend to read sometime too. Plus, Kagawa is releasing an entirely new book in this world, coming out next year.

Broken Throne by Victoria Aveyard: I’m a big Red Queen fan! Though, unlike most, I was satisfied with the ending of the fourth book. When Broken Throne released, I thought we were getting an entirely new book in the series. It turns out to be only a short story collection. I didn’t quite like the last short story collection of Aveyard’s but I’m going into this with an open mind, hoping it will be great!

What are you reading in August?
