July 2020 TBR

Now that I'm on my summer break from university, I find myself finally being able to read for myself again! However, I find it helpful to have some structure in planning ahead what I want to read, and I like to mix between older classics, young adult fiction and more literary fiction. With that being said, here is my (slightly) ambitious July TBR!

    - Classics -

1. The Law and the Lady by Wilkie Collins: This is the classic book I'm currently reading at the time of writing, so maybe I'll be done with it even before July! Collins is known for his detective novels, and this is no exception, but I was interested in a woman being the one doing the investigating for a change.

2. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare: I have slowly been collecting this beautiful Pelican editions of Shakespeare, and Romeo and Juliet seems like the perfect one to pick up next! This is also me doing a bit of reading in advance for my next year at university, where I will be studying this play.

3. Mrs Rosie and the Priest by Giovanni Boccaccio: I was fortunate enough to receive a boxset of the first 80 Penguin Little Black Classics for my birthday last year, and where else to start than with no. 1?

                                                                        - YA -

4-7. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater: I absolutely love this series and I read the first 3 almost as soo as they came out, but not the last one! It definitely feels like the right time to reread them before I dive into The Raven King.

8. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys: This is such a beloved book, and one that I've been meaning to get around to for years! This is where my TBR is starting to get a bit ambitious, but hopefully I can read this soon, if not in July.                                               

                                                            - General Fiction -

9. The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin: I really liked the sound of this, and the whole idea of following siblings throughout their respective lives. However, now I've compiled this list I think it is quite unrealistic to think that I will manage to get to this in July, so you may be seeing this again for my August TBR!
