August Reading Wrap Up & September To Be Read

Hello, friends!

I have a short wrap up to share with you all. I only read four books in August, and one of them was started months ago, so I only had less than 100 pages left of it.


Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

Rating: 5 out of 5.

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Comeback by Ella Berman

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I had a set TBR pile for the month of September but it keeps growing as the days go on. I was also going to finish Greenglass House by Kate Milford, but I ended up just putting it down. I wasn’t in the mood and it didn’t catch my attention enough.

The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline

“. . . powerful, emotionally resonant novel that captures the hardship, oppression, opportunity, and hope of a trio of women’s lives in nineteenth-century Australia.”

The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

“A true-crime podcast host covering a controversial trial finds herself drawn deep into a small town’s dark past and brutal crime that took place there years before.”

The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser

“Funny, heartfelt, and as lively as any street in Harlem, this cozy family novel is about the connections we make and the unexpected twists and turns life can take.”

Hell in the Heartland by Jax Miller

“The stranger-than-fiction cold case from rural Oklahoma that has stumped authorities for two decades, concerning the disappearance of two teenage girls and the much larger mystery of murder, a possible police cover-up, and an unimaginable truth . . .”

Nightbooks by J.A. White

“Alex has loved stories his whole life. He never imagined he’d be trapped in one.”

The Train to Impossible Places by P.G. Bell

“A train that travels through impossible places. A boy trapped in a snow globe. And a girl who’s about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.”

I’m currently 70 pages into The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow.

“When one enters a door, one must be brave enough to see the other side.”

September 2019 TBR!

I don’t tend to make myself a TBR, but I want to start trying. I bought a planner so I could be more organized, and that goes right along with the fact that I need to start reading the ARCs I have on Netgalley. I told myself I wouldn’t let it get out of hand again, but now I have 49 that I need to read. I feel really bad about it! So, here we are. There is no way I can read the 9 ARCs I have that are coming out this month. I’m a huge mood reader, but I am going to try my best to get through a good chunk of them.

What am I Reading This Month?

Finishing up:

  1. The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo—This is a big book, but I’m 209/532 pages in. I’m really enjoying it, and I don’t want to rush through it. I should be able to finish it this month.
  2. The Dutch House by Ann Patchett—ARC that comes out 9/24. I’m 13% of the way through.
  3. Dragonfly by Leila Meacham—ARC that came out 7/9. I now have the physical version out from the library. I’m trying to read it so I can put out my review! I’m 100 pages in (17%).
  4. The Heart Keeper by Alex Dahl—Hopefully it doesn’t have to go back to the library. 😦 I’m about 25 pages in. I haven’t picked it up in awhile.

Starting:

  1. Wanderers by Chuck Wendig
  2. Violet by Scott Thomas—ARC that comes out 9/24.
  3. Well Met by Jen DeLuca—ARC that comes out 9/3. I obviously won’t have it done by the 3rd, but I will read it this month. *insert “fingers crossed” emoji*
  4. Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson—ARC that comes out 9/17. I’ve never read anything by Woodson, but I’m pretty sure this one is on the shorter side.

There is no way I’m getting through all of those. There are days where I want to read everything out there, and then there are days where I just veg out and watch YouTube. I just want a little more structure in my chaotic life, and this is just one way of doing so.

If you have read any of these, please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Don’t spoil anything though. Are any of these on your TBR this month?
