I feel like this year is almost over already. Even though I know it’s not. But the year is definitely more than halfway over, which means I feel like I need to start reading all the books. But, really I just need to get to a few more books on my TBR, and here are the books I’m prioritizing this month:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I have been meaning to read this for so long, and I’m finally going to do it. I do have a lot of other things I need to read this month, but my goal is to at least start this one. Because I would really like to finish it before the movie comes out (even though, knowing me, I won’t actually watch it until I can rent it at home).
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I’ve heard great things about this book, and I feel like I’m in the mood for something like this – a book that isn’t a comedy, but also isn’t depressing. So I’m hoping to get to it this month.
Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao. This is one of the books I was planning on getting to this summer, and since summer is almost over (which I am very excited about), I would like to read this one, too. It’s shorter than I thought it was, so hopefully I can read this one fairly quickly.
Binti: Home by Nnedi Okorafor. One of my reading goals this year is to finish this trilogy, which means I need to actually start book two. I read the first one in just a few hours, so I might try and read this one for Dewey’s 24-hour readathon this weekend, since I know it’ll be quick. Hopefully, I will also be able to get to The Night Masquerade.
I know it’s a lofty goal, but I would also really like to finish (or at least make progress on) The Priory of the Orange Tree. It’s taking me WAY too long to read.
What are you planning to read in August?
