So I just recently discovered that there are 111 fiction books on my bookshelves at home. This is not including any of the books on my list here. So yeah… that fact that I’m reading more books from off my shelves is a REALLY good thing. I need to up this reading gig thing.
Which is exactly my plans for this August. So I have decided to issue a challenge to myself. This last July I challenged myself to read every day (starting July 3rd) and I had some close calls but I did it! So this August, my challenge is to read at least 100 pages a day. If I manage to do this, that will mean that next month I will have read 3,100 pages. Which is enough time for me to read every single book only this month’s TBR!
I do have a few hefty books on my list for August but with this new goal I’m confident that I’ll be able to get through them. Plus, I don’t have to worry about school anymore because my semester is over!
So here we go, the books on my August TBR are…
The Ruin of Kings by Jean Lynons – 560 pages: I’m already about 30 pages into this book, and I was really liking it. I’m excited to be reading it this month! It is pretty high on my list.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He – 416 pages: I’m also 30 pages into this book as well. The setting really appeals to me and I am eager to finally get this book read!
The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney – 298 pages: This book is non-fiction and as been on my currently-reading list on Goodreads for 3 years now. I only have 110 pages left in it and it’s really interesting.
The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald – 368 pages: I got this book in one of the Go Scribbler boxes earlier this year. From what I understand, this book is a mystery/thriller and it sounds super interesting.
The Rise of Kyoshi by F. C. Lee and Michael Dante DiMartino -403 pages: Pages Unbound wrote a review for this and I knew I had to pick this up, especially since I LOVE Avatar the Last Airbender.
The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross -442 pages: Not gonna lie, I bought this at the end of July and I am already 100 pages into it. I couldn’t stop myself. The writing is so good. The Beast is definitely creepy in this and I’m interested to see where this retelling of Beauty and the Beast goes.
