I recently started a monthly TBR feature, where I try to pin down which books I plan to read in the upcoming month. It also helps remind me throughout the month which books I’m supposed to be reading, for various reasons. I add a little poll at the bottom too, so you guys can vote and help me narrow down some of my options as well. Here are my top TBR choices for this month and how I did last month…
June was apparently when I read all of my highly anticipated books! Between finally reading JUNIPER LEMON, diving immediately into ONCE AND FOR ALL, and also finally starting LUCKY IN LOVE (at the end of May), it felt nice to read a bunch of solid books in a row. I didn’t do too bad on my TBR. June – toward the end of the month – definitely got a bit crazy, but I managed to keep reading.
On Deck for July
ARCs to Read
The Possible by Tara Altebrando
I Believe In a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
In Some Other Life by Jessica Brody
So yes these are repeats from previous TBR posts, but whatever. I am bringing all three to Portland tomorrow (eek!) so they’ll be read soonish. I need to send IN SOME OTHER LIFE back to Marg before it’s published as well. I’m not sure why I keep putting these ones off.
A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck
All Things New by Lauren Miller
As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti
I’ve done a good job of not requesting too many books lately, but I definitely have a few to read before they’re released. I love Lauren Miller and can’t wait for her latest book. I’ve had my eye on A SHORT HISTORY OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR for a long time so that NG approval made me SO happy. I’ve also noticed anything involving wishes will immediately go on my TBR, so that was easy too.
Boys of Summer by Jessica Brody
The Islanders Vol. 2 by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant
The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
Like last month, I’m adding some summery books to the TBR. All of these should be headed to Portland with me and involve something beachy. I had decided a year ago that I’d read one volume of THE ISLANDERS each summer because they’re the ultimate fluffy, kind of terrible summer book series.
The poll is BACK because I felt like it, alright? This month’s theme is books on my Kindle that I should get my butt going on. All of these have been hanging around in one form or another (egalley or regular book), and I should really read them. They’re all ~adult~ fiction too.
I have only read I Believe In a Thing Called Love and I think you’re going to really like that one. The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart has such a cute cover. I need to check it out.
Happy reading! 🙂
I know – the cover is always half the reason a book ends up on my TBR 😉
I can’t wait to read your review for Lucky in Love! I’ve gotten behind on my Kasie West books, and definitely need to start back up with her books this summer. I’ve heard so much about I Believe In a Thing Called Love, and I’m really interested in A Short History of the Girl Next Door. In Some Other Life sounds a bit like her other book, A Week of Mondays, which I’ve been meaning to read for a long time now! I love Jessica Brody, so I really want to check out Boys of Summer too! Happy reading this month, Lauren! 🙂
Thanks so much! Lots of good books on our lists 😉
I remember The Summer After You and Me being a really good book.
Good to know 😀
I needed to add some summery books to my TBR for the next couple of months and thanks to this post I’ve gone with The Summer After You and Me and Jessica Brody, amongst others 😀 I’m in such a summery mood at the moment, it’s been great.
Me too!! I need to get going on actually reading some of these though hahaha
