My August wrap-up has been posted and now it’s time to reveal the books I hope to read in September. I say hope because this month, on Wednesday I’m starting my college course and it’s going to be the start of what I hope is five years worth of study in order to become a forensic psychologist! I’m super excited, but also extremely nervous because it’s been eight years since I was last in education, but I feel more prepared than I was then. Hopefully anxiety will stay well away!
I want to beat the four books I read in August this month. I’m aiming for six this month.
In my last post, I mentioned how I’ve already started This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada and Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.
I’m almost done with This Mortal Coil – if you like YA and sci-fi then you definitely need to add this to your TBR. It’s a strong debut from Emily Savada.
SIX OF CROWS
By Leigh Bardugo
I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to get to this. Okay, so I say this about most books that I read, but it’s true. When you had a reading slump that lasts several years you tend to have a LOT to catch up on. And I really do have a lot to catch up on. This is one book that I’ve heard so much about, seen almost constantly on Instagram, and have been seeing more frequently on Twitter. It’s about time I read it! I cannot wait to begin.
THE CRUEL PRINCE
By Holly Black
Do you ever feel as though you know you’re definitely going to love a book before you’ve read a single page? I have that with this! I’m so excited to get stuck into it. I think this is the book that dominates my Instagram feed the most, so much so that I feel like I know this book already.
THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN
I bought this on Kindle about a year ago when it was super cheat but have yet to read it. Since I’m going to college and travelling on a bus to get there (driving lessons are so expensive 😞), I thought it would be a good chance to get through the large amount of ebooks I have but have never read. I did try and read this one a few months back, but, for some reason, I wasn’t feeling it.
By Joe Hill
I am a self-confessed wimp when it comes to anything horror-related. I couldn’t even watch Life with Jake Gylenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, which is admittedly not a horror film, without covering my eyes with a pillow, so you can imagine what I’m like during horror movies. Because of my scaredy-cat tendencies, I’ve not read much horror, if at all. I asked on Twitter for some recs because I want to start reading more horrors and thrillers – I’ve started off with some pretty tame ones – and NOS 4R2 by Joe Hill was recommended to me by Roxanne. The concept sounds absolutely terrifying and I’m looking forward to reading. Hopefully it’ll make me less of a wimp 😂
It’s definitely more of a YA oriented TBR – I love YA but I do want to explore more genres that I’ve not read much of before. I read Final Girls by Riley Sager, which is a thriller, and I fell in love with the constant guessing and pointing fingers at different characters. If you guys have any horror/thriller recs then please let me know!
What’s on your TBR? How many books are you planning on reading in September?
