“Yes, sometimes I read books because the covers are shiny.”
This year is already eight months in. Can you believe it? Here’s what I’ll be reading, and possibly reviewing – this August.
- Broken Earth Trilogy by N .K. Jemisin: I’m doing a Broken Earth buddy read with a group on GoodReads. To celebrate the release of book 3 in the trilogy we’re reading all of the. I started The Fifth Season last week and so far I find Jemisin’s writing style refreshing. I love fantasy but I haven’t read much in the genre. I’m looking forward to telling you more about it in my review this months.
- Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay: Another Fantasy Buddy Read. I’m looking forward to this one because I like the cover and the Title. Yes, sometimes I read books because the covers are shiny. I’m reading it on Scribd but I’ll probably buy a hard copy if I find one. I like shiny books with pretty covers even if I didn’t like the actual story.
- Birthing the Miraculous by Heidi Baker: Heidi Baker is one of my heroes. Her life story is inspirational. Born and Raised in Laguna Beach she left the western world to be a missionary in Mozambique where she is making a difference one person at a time.
- Prufrock: The latest issue of Prufrock is out. Stoked. Prufrock is a South African literary magazine. It showcases poetry, prose, and art by established and up and coming writers.
That’s my August TBR pile. What will you be reading?
