It’s nearly halfway through September, so it’s probably too late for me to post my TBR, but oh well. No one ever said I had to be punctual.
So far I’ve read two full books and three short stories, the full books being The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig and And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. The short stories were Recoveries, A Fist or Permutations and Lightning, and Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers. My favorite of the short ones was Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers. It hit the spot.
As for what I’m currently reading, I’m on maybe chapter two of Strange the Dreamer, reading Ariel by Sylvia Plath (poetry), and loving Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott (on writing; my AP English Literature teacher gave it to me). The goal is to have these three done by the end of the month and to never be reading three books at once again…
There will be another AP Lit book in there, but I’m not sure what yet. I’m thinking either The Namesake, The Poisonwood Bible, Everything I Never Told You, or The Handmaid’s Tale. We’ll see what happens, so stay tuned for my wrap-up. Although, I won’t have to have the book finished by then, but I’ll definitely mention it.
I have to read Dactyl Hill Squad by Daniel Jose Older because the final copy comes out in October and I’d like to have my thoughts posted before then for the sake of the ARC and publicity.
I was really hoping to read The Hamilton Affair either last month or this month, but I struggled so much to get into it that I DNF’d it for now (probably not a permanent state).
The main ones I want to get to in the rest of the month are When the Moon Was Ours by Anne-Marie McLemore, Behind her Eyes by Sarah Borough (baby’s first thriller…), the short story Midway Relics and Dying Breeds by Seanan McGuire, and We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. Somewhere in there I wanted to reread The Darkest Minds because one of my friends got me a signed copy of the movie tie-in for my birthday, but I don’t think I’ll have time…
I guess we’ll see?
Hope you all have an amazing September! Tell me what you’re reading in the comments! (Just beware that all comments have to be approved my yours truly before they’ll show up).
