I don’t usually to TBR posts on here, but I’m trying to be more active and what’s a better way to do it then this! I have a fairly ambitious TBR for September, especially given I’m taking two really hard classes right now, but I also have a huge TBR list, so…
I’m currently reading The Rose & the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh, the final book in The Wrath & the Dawn duology. I loved the first book, so I’m looking forward to reading this one! I just started it this morning, so unfortunately I’m not very far yet, but I hope I can finish it before going back to school Tuesday.
Replica by Lauren Oliver is on my TBR because I’ve had it on my shelves for ages. I think it’s about time I get to it before it hits a year of gathering dust.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, which I’m really excited to read because I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns and find the historical content fascinating and enlightening. I think this’ll be a really great and diverse read.
The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell, which is an ARC I got at Yallwest that comes out on September 19th. I thought it came out later, so I was holding up on this one, but oops, I guess not. Thankfully, this should be a quick read because it’s a middle grade book and has illustrations (I think).
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater is a book I’ve recently purchased, but can’t wait too long to get my hands on it because I want to read it SO badly. It’s her favorite book she’s written and since I loved The Raven Cycle, I’m pretty sure I’ll like this. Not to mention, I’ve only heard amazing things.
Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine, which is the sequel to Ink and Bone, one of my favorite books from earlier this year. I’ve waited to long to read this, especially since I got it not too long after finishing the first book. I can’t wait to pick up with these characters!
The #1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall White is on this list because my grandmother gave the first two to me and if I like it, she wants to give me the rest of her copies. Since she and my granddad are visiting next month, I figure I should read the first one (and possibly the second) before they come so I can make a decision on reading the rest.
And I Darken by Kristen White, which I picked up recently at a book event and can’t wait to get to! One of my friends loves it and I’ve heard amazing things. It looks like a fabulous historical retelling and as much as I love history, I’m certain I’ll love this.
The Circle by Dave Eggers, which my piano teacher gave to me along with some other books that I can’t wait to read as well! I’m looking forward to this because I want to watch the movie soon (Emma Watson is in it!!!) and it sounds completely awesome. I’m not sure what genre it would be, but it sounds like a mix of dystopia and science fiction with a whole lot of realism in it and just yes.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness since I bought it a few days ago and have a feeling it’ll be a really quick and suspenseful read. I’ve been wanting to read this book for so long, so I finally caved and got it. It’ll be my second Patrick Ness book (after A Monster Calls) and I’m somewhat wary because A Monster Calls wasn’t a huge favorite of mine. However, this sounds very different, so I’m interested!
Okay so ten books might be a little ambitious given my track record, but I’m going to try!! Wish me luck, guys! <3
