I’m very excited for August, I’ll be getting my first owlcrate box and there are a whole bunch of books I’m excited to read.

This is the current list of books I am definitely planning on reading at the moment. I will probably add more as I find out what books I can afford to buy.

  1. Sorcery of Thorns
  2. Willa of the Wood
  3. Sea Witch
  4. A Court of Frost & Starlight
  5. Demonglass
  6. Spell Bound
  7. Wicked Saints (reread)
  8. The Elite
  9. Siege and Storm

One of the most exciting things is going through your TBR shelf and just gazing at all the potential books — I know I am extraordinarily guilty of this.

For example right now I’ve got two books checked out on hoopla, one on RB Digital, ten on Libby and three physical books. Is this normal? I don’t know, all I know is that having this many books to pick through makes my life feel full.

A lot of the time I can read a book in a sitting, but sometimes I can’t. (Diana Gabaldon’s books are a good example of this, they’re much longer and far more complicated and they take me longer to read.) And sometimes I fall out of interest in reading the book right at this moment.

Therefore, I often have multiple books on hand to read at any given time depending on my mood. While some of the time these are all books in a series (Sorry, I am the one who checks out a whole series at a time if at all possible, then just reads it.) not all of them are.

Here are a few I’m reading right now:

  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
  • The Wife by Alafair Burke
  • Anna of Kleve by Alison Weir

All three of which I’ve been excitedly waiting for!
