August 2020 TBR

I thought my July 2020 TBR was ambitious, but I managed to read a total of 15 books this month! As well as reading all the books on my TBR, I also managed to get some great books out from the library like The Dutch House by Ann Patchett.

I have a lot of reading to do in preparation for my 2nd year at university, starting in September, but this TBR is also me trying to cram in some time to read the books I want to read!

                                                                    - Classics -

The Beautiful and Damned

1. The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald: This is a book I have been currently reading, but it's been put on the back burner for a bit because of all the books I have to read for university. I am hoping to finish it this month though!

                                                                   The Picture of Dorian Gray

2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde: This is one of the books I have to read for my 'Decadents and Moderns' module, and so far I am loving it!

                                                                    Far From the Madding Crowd

3. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy: This is one of those books that has been on my TBR shelf for years, so hopefully I can finally get to it this month!

                                                                The Scorpio Races

4. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: This is a re-read for me, but it's been so long since I last read it that I don't really remember anything that happens in it!


                                                                A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: I gave up on Maas' Throne of Glass series about halfway through, but I have heard that this is a better series, so I''m going to give it a go!

                                                         - Non-Fiction/Self-Help -   

                                                                The Gift of Silence

6. The Gift of Silence by Kankyo Tannier: I don't normally read a lot of non-fiction, and definitely not any self-help sort of books, but the concept of this resonated with me and seemed like it might be useful to read about. 

                                                                      - Fiction -


7. The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho: This is another book I have been wanting to read for ages, and after waiting for 3 months for it on hold at the library, I am finally reading the ebook of it!
