Tackling My TBR: September 2020

Tuesday, September 08, 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.

Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith: This sort of plot where the protagonist wins the lottery is something I’ve seen before. In fact, Lucky in Love by Kasie West had a similar plot and I just got so annoyed at the whole thing. I’ve heard that, in comparison, this one is better than Lucky in Love so I’m excited to try it out.

The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell: I’ve had this on my tbr pile for a while. The size is a bit daunting, but with magic and time travel, I know I’ll probably love it.

The Muse by Jessie Burton: I’m about halfway through this one already. After finishing The Miniaturist, I knew I wanted to read more from Burton. She has a new release coming out early next year. However, in the meantime, I’d thought I’d give this one a go. It follows a young girl, working as a typist for an art dealer, who uncovers a mysterious piece of artwork that’s been lost for years.

Black Heart by Justin Somper: This is the fourth in the Vampirates book series and I can’t wait to continue. I haven’t read the series in over ten years so a reread of the first three is definitely overdue. However, there’s a very real chance that I’ll probably just jump right into the fourth. This series follows shipwrecked twins who stumble upon a pirate ship filled with vampires. 


Buzzwordathon is a readathon hosted by booktubers: Kayla from BooksandLala and Paola from Paola Guerrero. Here’s the announcement for the readathon. This readathon takes place between September 21st to the 27th. Participants have to read books with the keyword “night” in the title. Here’s the books I hope to get to:

Night Film by Marisha Pessl: I’m a bit hesitant to try this one out. I rarely read thrillers but it’s told in a mixed media format which just sounds so cool.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare: I was planning on reading the short story collections, like The Tales of the Shadowhunter Academy, before I picked up this series, but it’s slow going on the collections and really, I just want to start the new series. 

Empire of Night by Justin Somper: If I love the fourth book of Vampirates as much as I think I will, I know I’ll definitely want to continue in the series. Plus it worked out perfectly for the readathon since “night” was in the title.

What are you reading this month?
