Hey Bookworms! It is finally time for my TBR! I have been thinking over it for a while because I didn’t read many of the books from My July TBR… So the title for this TBR will hopefully make up for it because I discovered I have become a more of a mood reader lately. I want to read one thing one minute and another the next! So my TBR isn’t going to be too ambitious because I start my last semester on the 24th. I know school will only take up the last week of August, but better safe than sorry. So any who, let’s get started and talk about the books that are on my mind now!
My August TBR
1. The Rest of The Princess Diaries Series by Meg Cabot
Hope you guys don’t mind the variety of covers! I am currently listening to Princess on the Brink and it already has me giggling. I am reading this series through my Scribd subscription which when on a book buying ban or a bad library is worth it! They don’t have Princess Mia and Forever Princess on audiobook though, so those will be read through the e-books. Finishing the last the Royal Wedding via audiobook once more and I can’t wait to see how all the characters will continue to grow.
2. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
I plan on starting and finishing this book this weekend. It is due next week, so I want to get it done this time!
3. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel
I know I know I have had this book on my last 2 tbrs! I will finish it by Friday though because that is when it is due! I am going to get back to reading it after this post.
4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Another book I plan on starting this one this weekend too because it’s due on the 18th. It is a little big, so the sooner I start it the quicker I can get it done because I can’t renew it because other people are waiting for it.
5. Hot Blooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
Another book I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but I definitely need to read it soon! It is a library book and sadly it is not mine to take my time with…
6. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Another one I haven’t gotten to this summer, but I really want to try it! It is getting a lot of love this summer and I want to love it too!
7. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
I want to read Reawakened Houck’s new book when it comes out, but I want to get reacquainted with her writing. I also really miss Kishan! I want to travel through this book too.
8. Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares
I want to continue my reread of this series as a listen. I want to reconnect with these girls who I connect with.
9. Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott
I bought the e-book last month and I am very excited to read it. The premise has me very curious, but I hope it is fast paced!
10. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling
I’m hoping reading this will make my last semester of college less scary.. I mean if Harry faced Voldemort at 11; I can handle the “real” world right? I hope so…
11. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Honestly I am craving a reread and a strong female alpha, so I want to reread this. Plus it is one of my favorite series.
12. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Another e-book I got on sale and I am super excited to continue this series! I adored the first book, so I cannot wait to see what happens next!
13.Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern
I am dying to continue on my Ahern kick! This is one of the audiobooks available through Scribd and I need more Ahern!
14. Broken by Kelley Armstrong
Another one that has been lingering on TBR too, but I know if I don’t get it done by the end of summer. It will have to wait until a break.
Well bookworms! That is some of the books I hope to read, but who knows if I will stick to it. My goal for the month as far as the number of books I want to read is 14. I’ve already read 3 books, so I think I can reach it! Have you read any of these? What is on your TBR? What is your monthly goal? Do rereads tear out your heart like they did the first time? Feel free to let me know in the comments! Happy Reading!

Hey Bookworms! Sorry for not posting all weekend, but it was a hard one. I am just hoping this week gets better. I feel set back after having a few weeks of being okay to say the least. It is hard dealing with depression again after 5 years of being okay, but I am trying to stay strong. Even on the good days it is still is there lingering under the surface. The good news is I am taking steps to get better and am proud of myself for getting help. I know I am not always the easiest to deal with in these time, but am extremely grateful for the few who have stuck around I am glad for the support I have found through my blogging and twitter. My readers are helping me a lot and so once again thank you! All of you! I promise my next post will have a happier tone to it.
As for the Readathon:
I got one book done because my mood has made me quite slumpy. I want to scrap all my TBR’s and move to the childhood reads I posted in my Top Ten Tuesday post. I need light and happy reads. As for the Readathon as much as I loved the hosts it wasn’t as active as I’d hoped it would be. Well it was their first time, so I am hoping it just hit some snags. A readathon should be an event where readers are cheering each other on with posts and asking what is read. I hope they do it again with more activity though! As for July I want to participate in at least 2! If anyone knows of any I’d appreciate it so much if they were shared in the comments below =)
Books I read:
I was able to finish one book: The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
This is a really cute and happy light book. I love that Anne Hathaway narrates and it just fits the personality of the character introduced in the movie. I do warn readers who are planning to read this that keep in mind that their are major differences. Try to set aside the movie as best as you can when you read and or listen to this book! That being said this book made me giggle and smile so much. So for those of you having a hard time at the moment I definitely recommend this book as a pick me up
I tried to read:
Thirteen Reason’s Why by Jay Asher
I had to put it down because it was triggering. I’m hoping when I am in a better place I can go back to it.
Good Reads Reading Goal Status
Even though I am in a bit of a slump I am still ahead of schedule! In fact I have almost reached it! I am 9 books away! I have read 63 out of 72 books. I am tempted to up it, but I dunno how often these slumpy periods will hit.
TBR for the Rest of June
Now most of these will be audio books since I am a bit slumpy, one Ebook, and a few Library books, but I’m hoping to get most of these done before the end of the month!
1. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
This is the second book in my Buddy Read I’m having with my Book BFF The Paige-Turner. I will be tackling some of this through half audio and half e-book to shake me out of slump
2. Hot Blooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
I read the first book a while back and found out it was more than one. Lucky for me the Library had it and I plan to read it next =)
3. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
My second buddy read of the month and I know I am more than a little behind my fellow readers but I hope they will forgive me!
4. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Found the audiobook through my Scribd subscription, so since I’m having trouble reading words right now I am giving the audiobook a shot!
5. Echoes of Us by Khat Zhang
This is a last book in a series and I regret waiting this long to read it! The good thing about waiting so long is you forget who you like, so are not too affected when bad things happen to them. I remember all the characters, but beside the two main characters I do not remember who I like. This will also be a half and half as well between ebook and audiobook
6. Princess in Love by Meg Cabot
The next book and happily (for me) narrated by Anne Hathaway. I am adoring the lightness of this series =)
7. Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
Another Library book and I have only read the first in the Tyrelle series that this book doesn’t spoil the rest of the series for me. If anyone knows if it will please let me know!
8. Everneath by Jodi Ashton
A mythological retelling and also a library book. So I want to try and get this one soon! I don’t want to feel guilty for renewing it again.
9. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel
A reread from the Library for me since sadly I don’t have my own copy. This was my favorite series in high school and deals with a theme I love: Reincarnation. A lot of people hate on this series which makes me sad because they don’t push through and see reasons in the 2nd book and on.
10. The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge
A childhood comfort that I am hoping will make me feel better! I just want to fall in this book and lost in the magic of it
So bookworms that is all for this post! I hope you all managed to stick through this whole post! I just wanted to make up for not posting for so long! I missed you all! Have you read any of these? What are you planning to read the rest of the summer. Comment and let me know down below! I always love to talk especially about books. Have a good week and happy reading!
