August 2019 TBR!
Posted On August 1, 2019
Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be talking about some of
the books I hope to read during the month of August. I say some because I’m
going to be participating in the Series Crackdown again, which starts tomorrow,
and I’m putting up a separate TBR for the readathon that will be going live
This post is just about the four books I hope to read
outside of the readathon. I’m honestly a little nervous about this goal,
because I’m moving into my dorm and starting back to school at the end of the
month. I don’t know how much reading I’ll be able to get done during those last
few weeks, but I’m going to try my best to get through this TBR.
1. These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch
This book is on the top of my priority list, because I
currently have it checked out from the library, meaning that eventually I’m
going to have to return it. I don’t know much about this book, but it’s
fantasy, and I think it involves pirates, which is all I need to know. Plus, I
liked this author’s other series, so I’m interested to see what she does with
2. Circe by Madeline Miller
Everyone was raving about this book last year, and it even
one Book of the Month’s book of the year award. I love Greek mythology (mostly
thanks to Percy Jackson), so I’m pretty excited about this one. I have the
ebook of it on my phone, so this will probably be the book I end up reading while
I’m out doing errands or something and I have a few spare moments.
I read this first book in this series, Truthwitch, last month, and I absolutely fell in love with the
series. The world is cool, the characters are cool, and so far, it’s just all
great. Because of that, I really want to get started reading the next book
before I lose steam on the series (*cough* Thunderhead
*cough*). I do have to check this book out from the library, though, so I
probably won’t end up reading this book until after I return These Rebel Waves.
4. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I’ve read this book before—many times, so many times I don’t
even know for sure what the exact count is, but it’s been a while since the
last time I read it, and since I saw the Lightning Thief Musical back in May, I’ve
been craving a reread of this series, so I think I’m going to try to start that
Maybe I’ll even get to some of the other books in the
series. Who knows? For now, though, I’m only hoping to read this one. However,
out of the other books I listed here, and the books I’m planning on reading for
the readathon, this is probably my lowest priority, so we’ll see if I manage to
get to it.
That’s all for my August TBR! Let me know what books you’re
planning to read this month! Are any of them the same as me? Have you read any
of the books I talked about above? If you did, tell me your thoughts below
(with no spoilers, please!).
Thanks for reading, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with
my Series Crackdown TBR!
