August 2020 TBR

TBR8

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! 🎂

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!  💕


Loveless by Alice Oseman 🌈
Buddy read with Lea & Maëlys 💕

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 💕

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 🇨🇳
Publication: November 26th 2020 by Harper Voyager
Buddy read with Maëlys 💕

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 Maëlys 💕

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 Maëlys & Lea 💕

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 Maëlys 💕

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 🇧🇩🌈
The August Book Club Pick for Dragons and Tea 🐉☕

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 Patterson 
Buddy read with Maëlys & Lea 💕

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! 💗
