SO, if you follow readers on any blogs, instagram feeds or Facebook groups, you know what TBR means. Essentially it’s a booknerd’s absurdly long, neverending list of books to read. And I’m serious, it never ends, it never gets shorter, and half the books are sitting on our shelves because in the meantime, all our holds are coming in at the library, and those become top priority.
Every month, from what I can tell, I and many other fellow readers (aka book hoarders, incredibly intelligent, super social, library stalkers with multiple invitations we kindly eschew for a night in bed reading with imaginary people in imaginary places… it’s not weird.) set up a list of books that we are super stoked about reading – wait, I just got a ping from my phone, another hold just came in… okay, back to this impenetrable list of books for August, I just have to reshuffle it real quick – we post it on our Instagram feeds, and then end up reading 1 or 2 of them.
The point is, these are all books that I am putting at the forefront this month. (You can see the picture in my Instagram feed at the bottom of the blog) Now, I have to be honest, I’ve already had to shuffle my list around, because two books I have are on hold for some other obsessed person, so I have to get them read and back to the library this week. Priorities.
Here you go… the books I aim to finish this month:
