August TBR

Happy August everyone! This year is FLYING by!

Let's talk TBR lists. Mine is stupidly long. I don't use Goodreads to track it; I just have an Amazon Wish List that I add books to when they sound interesting. It has over 100 books on it right now, of course. I even go through it occasionally and remove books that don't sound good anymore, but I guess I just add them faster than I can read them.

Here's what I'm hoping to read this month:

Code Name Verity is one I heard about on the What Should I Read Next? podcast. When it was a Kindle Daily Deal a few days/weeks later, I snatched it up. I started it already, so that may be cheating, but I don't care. It's about a British spy, code name Verity (hence the title), whose plane goes down over Nazi occupied France and she's captured by the Gestapo. That's right. I said SHE. I love World War II novels, so I'm really enjoying this one so far.

Before the Fall is the August pick for the Mother Daughter Book Club. Also one I heard about on the What Should I Read Next? podcast. It was available to add to my last Book Of The Month Club box for only $9.99, so I did, because new release hard back for only $10? Heck yes. I've been really excited to read this one and it was really hard to wait until August to start it.

The Nest is another that I've seen all over #bookstagram AND Amy Poehler wrote a blurb for it, so how could I not? I LOVE her. And in case you were wondering, I'm pretty sure it has also been on the What Should I Read Next? podcast.

The last book I'm excited to read this month, might even be tied with my excitement level for Before The Fall, is Dark Matter. I can't remember where I saw this first, but Sophie from Main Street and Maple just reviewed it and it had me convinced that I NEEDED to read it. I was *this close* to ordering it from Amazon, but something told me to wait until the August books were announced for the Book Of The Month Club, and sure enough that was one of the selections. I quickly added chose it as my pick. Lest you think all of my book recommendations come from the What Should I Read Next? podcast, there's some proof that they don't. (But really, 98% do.)

Are you a planner or a pantser when it comes to what you read? I'm usually a pantser (in this one area of my life), but I'm trying being a planner this month because there are so. many. dang. books. I want to read.
