I did that thing where I read all the wrong books again… HOWEVER, I did also read book 52 of the year which means I have smashed my target a little early!
My August reads were: SweetFreak by Sophie McKenzie, S.T.A.G.S. by M. A. Bennett, Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine (this was book #52), The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw, and One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus.
Time to pick a selection of books for September that I will probably ignore and read completely different things instead. Because that’s what happens when your TBR of books on your shelf is over 90 books long… TOO MUCH CHOICE!!
(Books that count toward my BBC17 will be highlighted in PURPLE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club books will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review post in May after our meeting.)
On the list are:
The House Of Doctor Dee by Peter Ackroyd – Something a bit different to our last book club read! I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this one.
The Exact Opposite Of Okay by Laura Steven – A YALC ARC that has the most fabulous cover and I have heard SO MUCH good about.
The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting by Holly Bourne – I have loved every Holly Bourne book I have picked up, so I’m looking forward to this one a lot.
The Call by Peadar O’Guilin – This was on last month’s list and I did start it – I will finish it this month. (It is really good so far, I read half of it in one sitting!)
Who Runs The World? by Virginia Bergin – I bought this on holiday last month… because it has a pretty cover. I didn’t even read the blurb!
Rivers Of London: Body Work by Ben Aaranovitch & Andrew Cartmel – The first graphic novel in the Rivers Of London series. I’ve wanted this for aaaaages.
