Well it’s that time of the month again… And by that, I mean that a new month is starting which means a whole new monthly TBR! Obviously. I’m a little late getting out my TBR this month but I’ve just been really busy between work and all that jazz to sit down and formulate what my reading plans were for August. I was also in a bit of a mini reading slump this past week which affected my blogging plans. But I’m finally here, right?! So let’s get to it!
August Tome Topple Readathon TBR & Announcement
Yes, I am participating again this round! I’m joining in a few days late because of my stinking reading slump which has pushed me back just a tad. However, I have full plans to catch back up and finally start on my two book picks for this round!
Tome Topple is a readathon hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes. She’s one of my favorite booktubers, in case you don’t recognize the name. This readathon is all about reading those big books on your TBR that you’re usually too scared to grab. The only rules is that the books must be over 500 pages and cannot be an anthology of short stories. Sounds easy, right?! This readathon is running from August 4th – August 17th. You can visit the Goodreads Group to learn more about the readathon.
And the choices for my readathon TBR are….
- Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo
- Lost Stars by Claudia Gray
I’m aiming for only two books during this readathon, as I will be starting late due to the fact that I’m still reading Six of Crows at the moment. So the logical first book for the readathon should be its sequel, Crooked Kingdom. Then I want to finally pick up Lost Stars so I can check another Star Wars canon novel off of my list. I’ve also had both of these books since they were published, so you know, just a little behind on reading them. OOPS!
- Hunted by Meagan Spooner
- Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo – currently reading
- A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
- Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero
- Fuse (Pure, #2) by Julianna Baggott
- American Fire by Monica Hesse
- The Child Thief by Brom
- The Mysterious Benedict Society (The Mysterious Benedict Society, #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart
I think I might be a little ambitious with my TBR for this month, especially after not really reading at all during the first week. However, if I can even get through half of these books then I will be satisfied. I think I have a really good mix of genres this month, which should help keep me from getting too bored. At least I hope so.
What books are on your TBR for this month? Are you participating in Tome Topple? If so, what books did you choose to pick up for it?
