August: What I’m Reading

After a big book haul month, August for me is going to be all about reading what I own! My top priority: e-books. I am so grateful for the galleys I’ve received from publishers, but frequently if they are only able to give me an e-book, I don’t read it. I just don’t enjoy reading on my kindle as much and I can’t get as much blog/instagram content because kindle photos are “less attractive”. My plan for August is to alternate between kindle books and hard copies to make some progress on my ever increasing TBR!

Here are the books!

While my goodreads TBR is now towering around 20 books, here are six I’d love to read this month!

The Witch Elm by Tana French
Pub Date: October 9, 2018
Publisher: Viking Books
Description: I’ve long enjoyed the Dublin Murder Series from Tana French, but this book will be her first standalone book!

Ohio by Stephen Markley
Pub Date: August 21, 2018
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Description: A murder mystery with social commentary on today’s America. Very excited to see how this complex plot comes to life.

A Girl’s Guide to Missiles by Karen Piper
Pub Date: August 14, 2018
Publisher: Viking
Description: I’ve heard that this one fits more in to memoir than history, but I’m excited to add this to my collection of stories set in the American West (a new focus interest of mine!)

Chariot on the Mountain by Jack Ford
Pub Date: July 31, 2018
Publisher: Kensington Publishing
Description: A novel around a historical court case in the Old South. I’m getting To Kill a Mockingbird meets The Underground Railroad vibes from the description, but excited to see how this one lives up!

The Distance Home by Paula Sanders
Pub Date: August 7, 2018
Publisher: Random House
Description: Another novel about life in the American West, specifically 1960s South Dakota – I’m really upping my knowledge on the region this year 😉

The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin
Pub Date: February 13, 2018
Publisher: Berkeley Pub
Description: This book was actually gifted to me by the author, who’s been following me on instagram for a while now! I was so honored to have her reach out and the cherry on top was that this book has totally been on my radar since its pub date back in February!

  1. I understand about not liking to read on a screen – I bought some books on my Kindle app when I first got my iPad and then I realized that I don’t like reading on a screen (I get enough of a computer all day at work.) But one of my goals for NEXT YEAR (yes, I’m already thinking of those!) is to finally read those books and clear the decks.

  2. Kindle photos can be a challenge esp if the book cover is only print and doesn’t have any graphics. Good job on reading your own books. I’ve been meaning to have a more of Kindle reads only because I’ve accumulated quite a few on there very the years,
