A Little Life is definitely going to take me some time to finish, and I am also trying to get through an ebook so September’s TBR is slowing me down
HOWEVER, after careful consideration of your suggestions I have picked some spooky halloween reads for this month!
The Shining by Stephen King – I have been dying to read this book, but I wanted to save it for October!
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – I am a little embarrassed to say I have never read this yet, but it fits right into my Halloween theme!
The Shack by William Paul Young – I have chosen this read for now (mostly because I need to finish it so my mom can have it), but it doesn’t exactly fit with my theme so I may change my mind when I get around to it.
Because I still have some September reads to clue up I have chosen only three books besides for my TBR – hopefully I get to read more.
Have you read any of these?
August was dedicated to reading IT by Stephen King even though I managed to get a couple more quick reads in before the month was over. For September, I am going to push my limits and try to conquer a few “shorter” reads and to at least get started with A Little Life. A few of these on my September TBR are a part of my 2017 must-reads I posted about earlier: you can read about that here
On this months TBR list is:
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
– This is a book I have been wanting to read since highschool, I had the option to read this or The Hobbit for an English course and I chose The Hobbit. About 4 years later I am finally getting around to this read.
The Giver – Lois Lowry
– I have seen this read all over my social media feeds and one of my friends is reading it now. I hope it is worth all the hype!
Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng
– I snagged this book at a book fair for 2 dollars! I had no idea what this book was about or if it would be worth the read, but after buying it I started to see it pop up on my social media feeds which made me excited to read it!
Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom
– I have been wanting to read this book forever, but I wanted to wait until I had enough free time to really take my time and enjoy it. The concept is similar to the book The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch which I really enjoyed. Being 21 and just finishing university I really appreciate hearing about life experiences and advice from others. I will probably start this month with this read!
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
– This book has been everywhere! I have only seen praise and excitement for this read. It is a bit longer of a book so I am not expecting to have it finished by the end of the month, but I am hoping to be well into it by then.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman (not pictured ebook)*
– I have already started this one, but I only really use my ereader when I am doing cardio at the gym so ebooks take me a little longer to finish. I am already really enjoying this read I love the suspense and creative characters so far.
Have you read any of these?
So many books.. so little time
My reading list for his month consists of :
- Finishing A Man Called Ove
- The Picture of Dorian Gray
- Whisky Words & a Shovel I
- Astrophysics for People in a Hurry
- It (This is going to take me a long time to read, therefore I’m going to squeeze it in every so often, but starting it this month)
I have a few books I would like to get through during June (I think I can, I think I can)
On this list is …
Carrie by Stephen King – This will be my first Stephen King and horror read, I am so excited.
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin – I have already started this book, I am going to aim to finish it this month so I can start back on Tools of Titans! Need all the self help I can get.
Hunting Humans by Elliot Leyton – This book is for school, however it is definitely going to be an interesting read since it revolves around serial killers.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman – I have been waiting to read this book F O R E V E R.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – This book is all over my social media feeds, safe to say that I am intrigued.
*Not pictured: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- I am currently reading this on my kobo, I use this most at the gym. It is about time I read this classic.
Any suggestions for July?
