Yesterday was the last day of the tome topple 2 week readathon and during that time I finished an astounding… zero books! I started 3 books but unfortunately I didn’t finish a single one. The good news is that I am seriously loving all 3 of them and I am guessing that they will all be five star reads. The bad side (although there’s not really a bad side when it comes to books!) is that I need to spend the next ten or so days of the month finishing my August books and oh yea I decided to participate in the Summerween readathon that starts on Monday. Two of my August books are on there so I do have that going for me. Yes, I am SO close to completing a monthly TBR for the first time ever and I am just going out of my way to make it harder for myself but there are just so many books that I want to read! This post is going to be a bit of a chaotic mess because there is a lot going on reading wise but I am going to try to organize it the best way possible.
I linked to my Summerween TBR above so you can check that out if you want to see what books I plan/hope to read next week.
These are the books that I started during the tome topple readathon. All are incredibly written and when I am reading each one I am easily transported to the setting of each. David Copperfield is my main priority to finish this month because it is also on my August TBR. I should have no problem finishing it even with all the other books I plan on reading.
These are the only two books left on my TBR that aren’t a part of any readathon. Coincidentally, they are also the ones I am the most nervous that I am not going to read. Although, in the name of fairness, Zone One is not technically on my TBR. I forgot about it when I was making it and then realized I never put the Literally Dead book club pick on there. So, it’s not quite as bad as it seems. Also, I read the Literally Dead August book, Home Before Dark, last month so I am reading last month’s pick this month. Is anyone else getting confused and overwhelmed?!
Finally, we have made it to my “weekend” reads. I put weekend in quotations because I probably won’t finish Women, Race & Class until next month. This might be the slowest book I have ever read but I find everything so interesting and fascinating and I want to make sure that it is all sinking in. I meant to read Vanishing Stair earlier in the month but I just never got around to it and I need to read it so I can read The Hand on the Wall next week. Judging by how quickly I read the first book in this series, Truly Devious, I have no doubt that I will finish this is in either one or two sittings.
