Since I did so well following my August TBR, I hope to be just as successful with my September TBR. I find that if I shoot low and only put 5 books on my TBRs, they are more manageable and it leaves me with a little wiggle room to squeeze in a mood read or two.
Here are the books I’m planning on reading in September…
In preparation for the Books by the Banks Book Festival that I am attending in October, I will be continuing to read as many books by confirmed authors as I can until October 15th. BBTB is an annual book festal held in Cincinnati, Ohio, about an hour away from me, and will be my first book festival! I am super excited to meet authors like Maggie Stiefvater, Jenny Lawson, Tiffany McDaniel, Emily Henry, and many more!
Books by BBTB authors:
» Little Nothing by Marisa Silver
I am probably the most excited for this book out of the 3 books by BBTB authors on my September TBR. I have high expectations.
» Fractured by Catherine McKenzie
I have not read much in the thriller genre, but I really want this book to knock my socks off!
» Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid
I don’t have high expectations for this one. I am hoping it is going to be a sweet fluffy YA romance…I hope I don’t regret trying this one out.
My book club’s September book selection:
» A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I was very excited when my book club selected A Man Called Ove for September’s book selection! I’ve heard really good things about it.
Book to diversify my reading:
» The Book of Esther by Emily Barton
As some of you know, I have challenged myself to read one book each month written by or about a person (or people) who differ from me: people of color, people of different religions, people with physical or mental handicaps, LGBT+ characters, etc. etc.
The Book of Esther is my first book in my goal to diversify my reading. Emily Barton, a “Jewess,” incorporates a lot of Jewish customs and culture in this book, which I would love to learn more about. I also find the concept for this alternative WWII historical fiction to be absolutely fascinating!
