(An Ambitious) August TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(73)

The reason I’m going to be a little more ambitious with my TBR than usual is because I have to cram a few of these in this week since they’re due back to the library and I have a couple of ARCs that need to get read quick as well! I think if I try hard and believe in myself I can read all of these though…..I hope.

So hopefully I will just turn into some sort of reading machine this month and get through all of these!

The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I’m currently reading this and loving it! It’s a bit longer than the books I’ve been reading but I think I can easily tear through the rest since the writing is excellent and the story is actually pretty hilarious!

Asylum by Madeleine Roux

Hopefully I can squeeze this in this week quick! I always want to read more YA horror books so this has been on my TBR for a while but I haven’t heard too many great things about this book so I’m going in with lowered expectations.

Alex + Ada Volumes 2 & 3 by Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn

I really loved how the first volume ended and it left me curious as to what would happen next so I borrowed the last two volumes from the library and I’m going to, once again, cram them in this week before they’re due!

Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

Everybody has been ranting and raving about this graphic novel and especially now since the second volume has come out! It’s a really interesting concept and the art is gorgeous so I’m hoping to finish this week.

Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast

This is an ARC I got that sounds super interesting! It’s about an alien invasion and a girl in the human resistance is injured and an invader deserts his unit and the two must trust each other in order to survive. There really aren’t too many YA alien invasion or sci-fi involving aliens books that I know of so I’m excited to get to this one!

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

This book has quite the bit of buzz since it features a gender fluid main character who must compete to become one of the Queen’s assassins in order to exact their revenge. It sounds pretty reminiscent of “Throne of Glass” actually the more I think about it but I’m a big YA fantasy lover so I’m excited to see how this one turns out!

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

This is described as being a fantasy feminist reimagining of Snow White and I’m lucky enough to have an ARC of it! This doesn’t come out until September 5th but I’m hoping to fit it in here quick so I can review it on time!

Because You Love To Hate Me Edited By Ameriie

I just bought a copy of this book and I’m VERY excited to get to it so I’m making time to read this for sure! I love reading and reviewing short story anthologies it’s just fun and a nice break in the grand scheme of things! I’m also excited to see what all of these authors and BookTubers came up with because I love me some villains.

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

I love, love, loved Kara Thomas’s other book “The Darkest Corners” which was super dark and full of awesome twists! I’m expecting nothing less with “Little Monsters” so I’m really excited to read it and hopefully I get time this month.

      And thank you I’m hoping Zero Repeat Forever is as action packed as it sounds but we will have to see! πŸ™‚

    Good luck with your TBR! I’ve never heard of Asylum and I love anything horror so I went on goodreads to check out some reviews and it’s pretty mixed, I feel like it’s a you either love it or hate it sort of read, excited to read your thoughts on it!

      Thank you! Sorry for such a late reply but for some reason your comment got sent into my spam!

        I don’t know why my comment always gets sent to spam :(, but I can’t wait to check out your review!

    I’ve read Asylum and it was pretty good. I think I rated it 3 stars. The photos were super cool. I really want to read Because You Love to Hate Me but I’m trying to patiently wait for the copy Bloomsbury Aus are sending me. It’s not released until like September here so I’m tempted to just buy the ebook in the meantime πŸ˜‚ Looking forward to seeing what you think of Gentleman’s Guide!!!

      Thanks Lauren, I’m hoping I’ll at least enjoy Asylum because I’m always desperate for great YA horror.
      That’s awesome that you’re getting an ARC of Because You Love To Hate Me though! I know the waiting kills me too! Hope you enjoy it though it sounds amazing!
      And thanks so far I’m loving Gentleman’s Guide so it’s probably going to receive a very glowing review! πŸ™‚

    I have Gentleman’s Guide on my TBR as well! I’m hoping to get to it soon but I;ve been suffering from the WORST book slump! I also have BYLTHM and am super excited to read the stories in it! I heard Victoria Schwab’s is amazing which is no surprise she’s my favorite author!

      I think it’s safe to say Gentleman’s Guide would be a great book to help you out of a slump, it’s super entertaining! Schwab is an amazing author and I’ve heard her story in BYLTHM is the best as well! πŸ™‚
