#TBR August 2020

It’s my favorite time of the month… when I try to guess which books I might actually read over the coming weeks.

Does it always happen? Of course not! But damn it, my intentions are pure.

This month is kind of exciting, though. I have a smaller-than-usual regular TBR because… TOME TOPPLE ROUND 12. (What am I even thinking?)

The TBR

First up are two of the ARCs I’ve committed to reviewing…

The Day I Disappeared
Brandi Reeds
(Release Date: Aug 25, 2020)
Bad News Travels
James Swain
(Release Date: Aug 4, 2020)

The other books on my regular TBR for August include:

One Perfect Summer
Brenda Novak
Big Summer
Jennifer Weiner
One to Watch
Kate Stayman-London
Tailspin
Sandra Brown
The Last Flight
Julie Clark
Dark August
Katie Tallo

And then… the TOME TOPPLE…

Let’s be realistic here… there’s no way I’m going to read more than probably three, four at the really ambitious end, of these gargantuas. Here’s what I’m aiming to read for #tometopple.

The Goldfinch
Donna Tartt
771 pages
Crave
Tracy Wolff
592 pages
Lady Midnight
Cassandra Clare
698 pages

Book of the Month – August Picks

These are the books I’m hauling in my BOTM box this month. I’ve been SUPER excited about The Night Swim, so when I saw that one as a pick this month, I may have squealed audibly in delight.

A thriller for those who eat, sleep, and breathe true crime: A podcaster cracks open a small-town cold case.
This isn’t your typical romance. This is a badass, Cold War, Russian spy romance that throws you into all the drama.
This multiverse sci-fi blends social commentary with mind-boggling ideas, like seeing yourself in a parallel universe.

Tell me what you plan to read this month! Are you participating in Tome Topple Round 12? If so, what tomes do you have lined up? Let me know in the comments!
