June started out with an overly ambitious TBR and the readathon I joined during the month added more! Between the readathon and Reading Women Month, my reading was fantastic, but busy. For July, I decided I’m taking a bit of a summer vacation from overly planning. I have no doubt I’ll still get a lot of reading done, but I’m trying to start with a shorter TBR stack!
I’ve built my TBR mainly around various book club and buddy reads via Bookstagram and Goodreads plus a few books that were on my June TBR that I didn’t get to which will stay on my TBR shelf for July. Many of the books haven’t physically made it to my TBR shelf just yet as I have quite a few on my Kindle and some are headed my way via the library holds system, but I’ve still included them in my list:
A STRANGER ON THE BEACH by Michele Campbell (out 7/23/2019)
ALL THE BIRDS IN THE SKY by Charlie Jane Anders
DUMA KEY by Stephen King (#kingbuddyreads)
PLANETFALL by Emma Newman (#deepdarkreads)
QUICKER THAN THE EYE by Ray Bradbury
RECURSION by Blake Crouch (#notyomamasbookclub)
SMOKE SCREEN by Iris Johansen (out 7/30/2019)
THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO by Alexander Dumas (July/August #classicsbuddyread)
THE LUMINOUS DEAD by Caitlin Starling (#GrimReadersBookClub)
THE NEW JIM CROW by Michelle Alexander (#RevolutionaryReadingBC)
THE RETREAT by Sherri Smith (out 8/13/2019)
THE WIDOWS OF MALABAR HILL by Sujata Massey
WE WERE SISTERS by Wendy Clarke (out 8/8/2019)
Already this is feeling a little ambitious in spite of my ‘vacation’ mode planning, but I do have the #24in48 Readathon mid-month (July 20-21) that will help me spend at least one weekend setting aside some time to work my way through my TBR!
What are you looking forward to in July? See any on my list that you’ve read or want to? I’d love to hear!
