September TBR List

Following on from #ARCAugust, I’m planning to keep reading as many ARCs and review copies as possible to clear the backlog. I’d also like to work through some more of my reading challenges. My TBR list for this month is quite ambitious so I’m pretty sure I’ll not get through them all.

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland.
I won this book from Readers First (BTW, I’d definitely recommend this website to readers in the UK). The first line of the blurb hooked me immediately: “Ever since Esther Solar’s grandfather was cursed by Death, everyone in her family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime”. 

Blacklands by Belinda Bauer.
This is my second book in the Litsy whodunit UK postal group. There are 9 of us in the group and we’ve each chosen a favourite crime book that is then passed around the group, along with a notebook to write down any thoughts we might have.

Happy Days of the Grump by Tuomas Kyrรถ.
Another win from Readers First, this book sounds like a quirky and comic tale about a grumpy old man. 

Stockholm Delete by Jens Lapidus.
It’s been a lucky month for giveaways (thank you, Readers First!) and this is one more for the giveaway TBR pile. A Scandinavian thriller, the reviews describe it as a complex murder-mystery, which sounds perfect.

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.
I actually haven’t read We Were Liars yet but I won this book in a giveaway so will hopefully get it read this month. The reviews seem a bit mixed for this one so fingers crossed it’s better than expected.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.
I’ve been wanting to re-read this series for ages and, with the casting announcement for the upcoming TV show, I thought this would be a perfect time. I’m intending to join in with the Real-Time Reading which takes place September-November (find out more on The Tenth Knot).

Thorn In My Side by Sheila Quigley.
This is the first in a crime series and takes place on Holy Island. As I’m taking part in the #LitsyAtoZ Reading Challenge 2017, this book will fulfil the requirement for an author’s surname beginning with Q.  

Animal Farm by George Orwell.
Confession time – I’ve never read Animal Farm. I’ve always meant to but never seem to get around to it. Now I have a beautiful Folio Society edition, I’m intending to read it this month. It will also fulfil the O requirement for #LitsyA-Z and will be another book tackled from the BBC Big Read list.

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli.
I have this book on my NetGalley list and the limited edition pre-ordered from Goldsboro (released November). I love anything with dragons so this is a must-read for me. 

Invictus by Ryan Graudin.
A time-travel sci-fi book? Yes, please! I’ve seen this book on Twitter so often over the past few months that I’m desperate to read it. Luckily I have a NetGalley e-ARC ready to read.

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater.
I read this series for the first time a year ago and still think about it. If I miraculously have some spare reading time this month, I’d love to re-read this astounding series.

14 books is totally do-able, right?!

    I’ve got a Discovery of Witches on my shelf and I plan to read it before the show comes out but at the rate I’ve been reading lately who knows if I’ll get to it…

    The Last Namsara sounds so good! It didn’t get onto my radar until just recently and I have no idea how I missed this book. I, too, love anything and everything dragons.

    The Raven Cycle! I think about it constantly; if I had the spare time to reread it I definitely would.

    By the way, I nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award

      A Discovery of Witches is really addictive once you start it so you might get through it quicker than you think!
