August TBR:

Hello,

This post got out a lot later than I intended. I have about a week before I move back into school so I’m going to try and read all of these before next Saturday so I can take them back to the library. I have a smaller TBR this month due to school starting, though I will have some ebooks that I will be reading too. I’m also planning to catch up on some movies on Netflix that I have started, and I’m hoping to visit with some friends before we head back to college again.

 

Books I’ve read in August so far: 3

August TBR - Books I've read so far_

  1. Rogue (#2) by Julie Kagawa – I enjoyed this one more than the first one. I loved that we had more POV’s from other characters, and we also gained a lot more information about what Talon wanted as well. I”m definitely looking forward to reading soldier, though it will probably be a while before I can get to it (4 stars).
  2. Starflight (#1) by Melissa Landers – This one was okay, I didn’t really like the main characters at the beginning of the novel though they were better toward the end. The ending was also different than I thought it would be. I”m looking forward
  3. Fatal voyage (#4) by Kathy Reichs –  This one took me a lot longer to read than the others but it was still pretty good.

 

Books I am currently reading: 

August TBR - books I'm currently reading (2)

  1. This mortal coil (#1) by Emily Suvada – I’m having a harder time with this one than I thought I would so I went ahead and got a physical copy instead of the ebook to see it would work better.
  2. The assassin’s blade (#0.1-0.5) by Sarah J. Maas – This one is also taking me a while to get into but I’m hoping that once I get into it I will enjoy it.
  3. Siege and storm (#2) by Leigh Bardugo -I enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, tho this one is taking me a little longer to finish than I thought it would. It was a little slow at first, but it picked up around halfway so I”m hoping to finish it by the end of the week as well.
  4. Wings of the wicked (#2) by Courtney Allison Moulton – I’ve only read a few chapters in this one, though it seems interesting so far. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in this one as well.
  5. The darkest part of the forest by Holly Black – I’ve gotten about halfway in this one, but I haven’t picked it up since. I’m hoping to finish it tomorrow.
  6. Shades of earth (#3) by Beth Revis – I’ve only read a couple of chapters in this one but I’m hoping to make some progress with it by the end of the week.
  7. Golden son (#2) by Pierce Brown – I finally decided to pick this one up on my Overdrive account and even though I’ve only read a chapter or two, it is really good so far. I”m not sure if I will be able to finish it by the end of the week but I’m hoping to make some progress with it this week.
  8. Everlasting (#6) by Allison Noel – I wasn’t really a fan of the last two books in this series but I thought I would go ahead and get it as an audiobook
  9. Obsidio (#3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff –  I loved the first book in this trilogy, and I thought the second book was alright, so I went ahead and picked up the third one. So far I am definitely enjoying it more than the second one and am looking forward to seeing how the series ends.
  10. Grave secrets (#5) by Kathy Reichs  – I am really enjoying this series so far and am looking forward to seeing what happens in this one. I will probably finish it in the next couple of days or so.
  11. Bare bones (#6) by Kathy Reichs – I’m going to try and read this one as soon as I finish Grave Secrets though I will have to work through some other books before I can get to it.

  2. Monday Mourning (#7) by Kathy Reichs  – I am reading through this series a lot faster than I thought I would so I went ahead and picked up Grave secrets (#5), Bare Bones (#6) and this one.

  4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll –  This is another one that I picked up for a challenge that I am working on, and it was one of my favorite classics when I was younger as well.
  5. Atlantis and other Places: Stories of Alternate history by Harry Turtledove – I don’t know about this one either but I thought I would give it a try. I’ve got the audiobook so
  6. The boxcar children (#1) by Gertrude Chandler Warner – This was another one of my favorite series when I was younger, so I thought I would reread it for a few challenges that I am trying to finish as well.
