Hello and welcome to the latter half of 2020, let’s see how this goes. I’m kind of expecting aliens (oh wait that already happened) or dinosaurs to come back (oh wait that’s in the works) or maybe a giant meteor at this point. The new slogan is ‘2020: Anything Could Happen. Anything.’.
Anywho. Last month I only had three books on my TBR and still didn’t manage to finish any of them during the month so I contemplated not doing a TBR for this month but I would still like to highlight some of the books I’m thinking about reading soon so here we are. Not going to feel the pressure to get all of these read this month if I can’t do it–life is too short to stress out over made up goals that don’t really mean anything. That being said I believe I will definitely manage two of them for various reasons listed below. 🙂
- Written in Red by Anne Bishop. I feel like this book has been in my TBR for hot minute and people keep telling me how good it is and it sounds like it’s right up my alley–I love UF and I love Anne Bishop so this should be the perfect combo for me. I’m reading this as a buddy read with Lynn from Lynn’s Books so extra excited for this one!
- Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey. I got this audiobook a while back when there was a sale and also because I’d been wanting to try out more space opera/science fiction and this series is popular! I also picked up books 2 and 3 during audible sales so now I really need to get started. This is also one of my picks for 2020 bingo reading! Lots of reasons for me to get moving on this one.
- The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty. This is one of my MOST anticipated books of the year and I’m so excited to get to it. Can’t wait to see how this epic series concludes but if it’s anything like the first two books then I expect lots of gasping in shock and having to to hold on to my seat. I hope it’s exciting because I really need a book that feels like a roller coaster right now! This is not on my 20 books of Summer, not is a bingo read, but it will go towards my ‘finish off some series’ goal so there’s that. 🙂
And that’s all I’m officially putting on my TBR for this month. I still have the list of 20 Books of Summer I’m working through as well as my r/fantasy book bingo list so maybe some of those will make an appearance or maybe it will be all mood reading all the time. We’ll see where July takes me. What are your reading plans for this month? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
