September TBR

Posted August 30, 2018 / Book Lists, Features, TBR Lists / 4 Comments

My monthly TBR feature here shows my progress based on last month’s TBR, my plans for this month, and anything else I might be thinking about from a reading perspective. Sometimes I feature a little poll at the bottom so you guys can help me figure out a certain title I should read from a group of books.

August Progress

 Sadie The Last Wish of Sasha Cade Strange New World (Brave New Girl, #2) Unclaimed Baggage

I did a pretty good job of reading books on my TBR from August. I knew that things could change with ARC August depending on what I got approved for during the month, or where my mood reading took me. I also didn’t include ALL of my ARCs in the TBR so I did technically pull from the ARC August TBR and had more success.

On Deck for September

Possible Series Binge

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons by Denise Grover Swank Thirty and a Half Excuses by Denise Grover Swank Falling to Pieces by Denise Grover Swank

Rose Gardner Mystery Series by Denise Grover Swank

This is incredibly random, I know, but here’s the story and the two connected reasons: Reason #1: I randomly got addicted to some Hallmark mystery movies a few months ago when I was still in Maine. I specifically loved the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, starring Candace Cameron Bure. I loved the true-crime-obsessed, small-town librarian and her Real Murders Club, often banding together to solve crimes in the local area. I LOVED the “cozy mystery” vibe of each movie and have been anxiously awaiting the new installments twice per year (I think). Reason #2: My coworker got addicted to a book series – the Rose Gardner Mysteries series above – and was telling me about it all the time. There are spin-off series and novellas still coming out. From what she told me about the plot, the books are very similar to the Aurora Teagarden mystery movies I love. I decided that in September, once ARC August was over, I would subscribe to Kindle Unlimited and binge-read the series.

Library Books

China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians #2) Rich People Problems (Crazy Rich Asians, #3) To Right the Wrongs (Erin Blake #2)

China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan
To Right the Wrongs by Sheryl Scarborough

I keep checking out library books and not reading them..ugh… but I am definitely determined to read both of the next CRAZY RICH ASIANS books. I loved the first as an audiobook but knew there’d be too big of a wait to listen to the next two books. I also saw the excellent movie, so I’m definitely motivated to finish this trilogy. I also got TO RIGHT THE WRONGS out because I’m curious to keep up with this series even though I didn’t *love* the first one.


It’s Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

I listened to the first book earlier in August but ended up holding off on the next two. I caught up on podcasts for the most part, but I was also determined to have 75% ARCs read instead of these quick and easy non-ARC audiobooks. I’ll be starting the next one ASAP in September because summer is almost over, dummy.

Miscellaneous Reads

In Other Lands Sweet Laurel Falls (Hope's Crossing, #3) The Summer House 

In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan | Sweet Laurel Falls by RaeAnne Thayne
The Summer List by Hannah McKinnon | The Towering Sky by Katharine McGee

I have to read IN OTHER LANDS for my September 5th book club meeting, which I may have started already by the time this posts. I wanted to include it anyways since it’s technically a part of my September TBR. I hope to finally get back into the Hope’s Crossing series with SWEET LAUREL FALLS. I wanted to hold off on reading these, so I could read one per month. If I pick it up again in September, I’ll be able to read the Christmas-oriented book in December! I also hope to make one final push for summery books by reading THE SUMMER HOUSE. I enjoyed the other book I read by McKinnon and hope this one gives me the final summer feels I’m always looking for. And finally, THE TOWERING SKY was released this week and I have a library hold (and audiobook on Scribd) ready to go for it.

  1. I think I have two of those Swank books. I am eager to see what you think of them (maybe I will read them). I finished both Han and Kwan series this year, and both were great. Belly made me nuts, but I ending up really liking the last book. I really liked the arcs McGee gave to some of the characters in the previous book, and cannot wait to see how this all wraps up.
