I'm supposed to be reading one series per month, so for August, I picked The Tudor Witch Trilogy by Victoria Lamb. I've had all three of them from NG but never read them, and so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do so during this challenge since it would count for both. Two birds with one stone. I like making things easy for myself.
The BEA Pile
I tried to get through these books in July, but I ran out of energy and time. And I want to read these ASAP. For reasons. ;)
NetGalley and Edelweiss
I missed a few June and July books that I want to catch up on! I'm really excited for all of these, but especially Silver in the Blood (though I've heard mixed things on it).
My two August ARCs and a few of my September ones! I'd love to get a head-start on the next month and I'm glad I'll actually be able to do that.
Just In Case
Truthwitch is actually more of a "read it asap so you can give it back to your friend" thing. But let's be real, I've put it off long enough and I can't wait any longer. Honestly? I've been nervous to read it because of the hype, but I need to just ignore all of that and dive in. Also This Is Where It Ends is one that I HAD to get at BEA, and I'm excited to read it (though I know it's gonna be an intense book). Adding in the last book, too, just in case.
My goal this year is 15 ARCs, which was the same as last August (but I totally failed at it, so here's to actually hitting that number this time around). I KNOW I'm not going to be able to read all of these, and I don't have unrealistic expectations especially considering school starts up again a week before August ends. Also, let's be real, I'll probably read all the books except these since I can never stick to "schedules" or even loose lists. We'll just have to see what I've read when I recap the challenge in September. :) Wish me luck!
