Hello friends and fellow book lovers! If you didn’t know, August is my birthday month so I’m just focusing on books I want to read and books I think I’m going to love. There are a lot of indie books coming out I want to read and some others I’m excited for. I’m also going to be participating in the Blackloveathon this month so I’ll have a separate post for that. (Update: Mina said she’s postponing this round until February but still look out for some reviews of Black romance I want to read this month.)
With that being said, let’s get into the six books I have on my TBR. I have more but I’m going to feature them in a post of their own. Either way, let’s get into the books I know I want to read in August. 🙂
1. Trouble & Strife (Chances Limited #2)
The first book on my TBR for August is Trouble & Strife by Lara Kinsey. I read the first book in this series last month and enjoyed it. Since then, I’ve been anxious to read Sidney’s story. I follow Lara Kinsey on Twitter and she’s been getting me really hyped to read this. It’s also novella length so it’s going to be a perfect short summer read for me.
2. Nordic Daddy (Business Trip Boyfriends #1)
The second book I want to read is another Lara Kinsey book. This one is the first in her Business Trip Boyfriends series. I don’t really know anything about this series except that it follows a single dad. I trust Lara Kinsey though so I’m excited to pick this one up. It’s also another super short read so it’ll be another quick one. I might even marathon these two as they can probably be read in a sitting each.
3. Jasmin’s Billionaire
The third book on my TBR is Jasmin’s Billionaire by Sookh Kaur. I read the short story that comes before this book and really enjoyed it. I’m curious to see if this book ends up being as delightful as the short story that came before it. The cover is super cute and I’m excited to see Jasmin’s story. I’m all about the cure romance vibes during my birthday month so I’m just ready.
4. Midnight Sun (Twilight #5)
The next book on my TBR is Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer. I’m sure this will come as no surprise as this book is going to be read by a lot of us. I know that Twilight isn’t nearly as beloved as it was back in the day. However, I’m super excited to read it and see things from Edward’s perspective. I’m also curious if we’ll end up getting another book after this one. Either way, it’s high up on my TBR.
5. Wonder Woman ’77 Volume 1
The next book I have on my TBR is a Wonder Woman comic. I was originally super excited to go see Wonder Woman 1984 but they pushed it back again. To make up for that, I knew I wanted to read something Wonder Woman related this month. I decided on Wonder Woman ’77 Volume 1. This series sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun and hopefully, super campy. Even though I’m not getting the movie, I’ll see have something WW to look forward to.
6. You pick: Lock Every Door or Wilder Girls?
The last book on my TBR is one I want you to pick for me. I read Riley Sager last month and want to read more of his backlist. However, I also want to read Rory Power’s books so you see where my problem is. If you’re reading my post and feel strongly about either of these books, make sure to vote for them down below. Whichever one gets more votes, that’s the one I’ll be reading. 🙂
Anyways, those are all the books I plan on reading not including the Blackloveathon. I’m super excited to get to these books. I can only hope that August is going to be another huge reading month for me.
