Monthly Wrap-up: August/September TBR

Reading Update

I had a great reading month in August. I read eight interesting books . There were three so- so other books but I still count it as a successful month. In addition, I have reduced my Netgalley books to five which feels great. I plan to get down to three before requesting any new books. Well, unless one of my favourite publishers releases something before then.

Here are the books that I read in August.

Click on the titles to read my reviews of the next eight books.




Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

The Walls by Hollie Overton

Wicked Fallout by Kerry Charron

The Good Sister by Jess Ryder

The Other Girl by Erica Splinder

The Accident by S.D Monoghan


Book Club


Born on a Tuesday by Elnathan John



Looking for Alaska by John Green

Here is what I posted for the three books that I wasn’t too crazy about: Mini-reviews.

Blogging Update

My blogging was pretty usual. I posted book reviews and participated in WWW Wednesday which is one of my favourite weekly features. Towards the end of August, I joined another feature that I have always loved following. This is Throwback Thursday. So now I will be doing two memes per week with a couple of book reviews in between.

Books that I plan to read in September(Tentative/ Ambitious TBR)


I didn’t get to read some of the ARCs that were on my August TBR. So, I will start with them.



If the Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka


The following ARCs will be published in September and so they are on my TBR for this month.




The Girl who came back by Kerry Wilkinson

Cold Blood by Robert Bryndza

Emilia by Ellie Midwood

The Surrogate by Louise Jensen




Small Great Things by Jodi Piccoult

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins


Book club Reads


A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas by John Boyne

I am pretty excited about the historical fiction that my book-club is reading but the classic makes me nervous. I read Charles Dickens when I was in my early teens but I am not so sure that the book is for me at this point. However, I will give it a try and see how it goes.


Hallo september

I hope that you had a wonderful month. Happy September. Cheers!
