August 2020 TBR


August is always such a busy month for me, and notoriously my worst reading month, because of birthday things and traveling! But this year (and these quarantine times) are going to make this birthday a little different! Therefore, we are just going to over compensate by reading all of my favorite authors! πŸŽ‚

A few readathons that I always enjoy taking part in are also this month: ARC August and A-spec August! So, I feel like my TBR very much reflects that (plus me just wanting to read all the five stars for my birthday month), even though I hope to pick up a few more aroace things during these 31 days!Β  πŸ’•

➽ Loveless by Alice Oseman 🌈
Buddy read with Lea & MaΓ«lysΒ πŸ’•

I see a new Alice Oseman book and I buy, it’s really as simple as that at this point in my life. I haven’t seen too many reviews for this one, but I am excited to hopefully love it!

➽ Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite by Zoraida Córdova & Natalie C. Parker
Publication: September 22nd 2020 by Imprint
Buddy read with Destiny πŸ’•

I am craving a new anthology to read and review so badly, but I might be craving a buddy read with Destiny even more. Truly going to be such a powerful combination, and I can’t wait!

➽ The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³
Publication: November 26th 2020 by Harper Voyager
Buddy read with MaΓ«lysΒ πŸ’•

I’m already crying thinking of this being over, but also thinking of all the things Rebecca is going to do to my murder babies. I can’t wait to finish this trilogy and scream my love for it loudly forever.

➽ When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole
Publication: September 1st 2020 by William Morrow
Buddy read with MaΓ«lysΒ πŸ’•

Alyssa Cole writing a thriller? I mean, this is all I really needed to know. I love Alyssa and her stories so very much, and I can’t wait to see her to wow me with this new adventure for her! Also, my friend Bee really loved it and made me even more excited!

➽ Horrid by Katrina Leno
Publication: September 15th 2020 by Little, Brown
Buddy read with MaΓ«lys & Lea πŸ’•

I think this has a very good shot at making my best of 2020 list, and maybe even being my favorite book of 2020. Katrina’s writing and themes and stories are just 100% for me and everything I like in literature, and I can’t wait.

➽ Lady Hotspur by Tessa Gratton 🌈🎧
Buddy read with MaΓ«lysΒ πŸ’•

Hi, all I want to read is everything by Tessa Gratton, because I give five stars to everything by her and I truly think she could be my favorite author. Also, this book has such shitty ratings on Goodreads, and I really hope to love it and give it a review to help people pick it up, because sapphic Shakespeare deserves better.

➽ The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar πŸ‡§πŸ‡©πŸŒˆ
The August Book Club Pick for Dragons and TeaΒ πŸ‰β˜•

This sounds like it’s going to be the perfect f/f story, all about identity, and colorism, cultural appropriation, and much more, and I can’t wait to read this one with the book club!

➽ Kingdom of the Wicked (Kingdom of the Wicked, #1) by Kerri Maniscalco
Publication: October 27th 2020 by Jimmy PattersonΒ 
Buddy read with MaΓ«lys & Lea πŸ’•

Is it the autumn season yet and can you tell I want it to be because of this TBR?

What are you reading this August and are you doing any reathathons or readalongs? I can’t believe it is already August in this wild year, but I also can’t wait for fall and spoopy season to begin (hence this TBR, truly truly)! I hope you’re all having happy reading, and I love you all more than love itself! πŸ’—

      1. I will definitely let you know my thoughts once I read it. I mean, I’ve been doing lives on Instagram for the past couples of months about the Twilight Saga, which is super surreal for me.
        In terms of reading, things have been pretty good so far. Generally, just ok, but I can’t expect anything more with 2020 being the biggest prankster of the century!
        Have a lovely weekend dearie! πŸ₯°

  1. I’m a little late to the party, but just wanted to say yay! I’m so glad to see you’re back to blogging!

    And Lady Hotspur sounds so good. I can’t wait to see your review for it and hopefully pick the book up myself.

    Also I think Harrow the Ninth is coming out this month too. Will you be reading it? I remember reading your review for Gideon the Ninth and LOVED it! I love discovering so many new books thanks to your reviews.


  2. I’ve been wanting to read The Henna Wars, I might have to join the book club this month. I’m there for any and all vamp content so Vampires Never Get Old is on my TBR! Hope you have an amazing birthday month!! πŸŽ‰πŸ’•

      1. Same! Spooky season can’t get here fast enough! I hope the same! πŸ’œ Have you read The Stalking Jack the Ripper Quartet yet? Highly recommend giving it a chance if you end up loving Kingdom of Wicked.

  4. I really want to read Loveless! I have heard amazing things about it, plus it has aro-ace representation which I definitely need more of. πŸ™‚ I seriously need to read The Poppy War, I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. I just haven’t been in the headspace to read something dark recently. Good luck with your TBR! πŸ˜€

  6. Hey there beautiful! I’m excited to see what you think about everything you are doing to pick up. Sadly I can’t tell you what I’ll be reading outside of Henna Wars with the book club because I just don’t know. The struggle of being a mood reader. I hope you have the best reading month. I hope your birthday πŸŽ‚ month is an awesome one despite the current climate and chaos in the world 😘. Sending you all the love and light as always πŸ’œ

  7. So, so excited about buddy reads with you and also the fact that I’ll probably be picking up a few others on your list this month and we can have impromptu discussions and (hopefully) gush together?! πŸ‘€ I feel so blessed. I love you and I hope you have an amazing reading month!! (Also, am currently reading When No One is Watching and WOW, I am on the edge of my fucking seat, holy shit)
