I was lucky enough to be gifted quite a few books for Christmas, it was a mix of new books and books I have already read but didn’t own physically.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is book titles that sound like they’re song titles. So I went through all the books I read recently and these books definitely gave me song title vibes!
No Exit by Taylor Adams
Watch Over Me by Nina Lacour
He Started It by Samantha Downing
The One by John Marrs
Burn by Patrick Ness
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
This month I decided I would go back to doing an actual TBR instead of my usual mood reading. I have quite a few library books loaned out that I haven’t had a chance to get to yet, so I though for August I could prioritise them! As somewhat of a completionist I do kind of want to attempt to complete the NEWTS this month quietly as well. And then if I have time after I finish all of those I will definitely be picking books out of my physical TBR which I will also list below.
The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren
Girl Gone Viral by Christina Lauren
Grave Peril by Jim Butcher
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum
Anna K by Jenny Lee
Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski
Loveless by Alice Oseman
The Guest List by Lucy Foley
I’ve had a pretty great reading month in terms of quantity, the quality of the books were a little average though. There was a lot that I thought I would love that were just kind of ok. I participated in two readathons this month which went really well and I read a lot of books that have been on my radar now for a while so I am definitely satisfied with that!

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on what I’ve borrowed from the library so I figure today was the day! My local library only just reopened a couple of weeks ago after being closed for 2 months due to covid, so I went straight in and borrowed some fresh books to read! I’m trying to catch up and get into some of the cult favourite fantasy books that have been out and beloved for ages now and my library actually holds a lot of these books which works out perfectly for me!
