Hello readers, I’m back with another TBR for August/September, My last one was in October of 2018, which was a little bit of a disaster, darn work got in the way. But this month I’m pretty safe and wanted to give fellow readers and followers insight to what I’m looking to read.
Flight or Fright edited by Stephen King and Ben Vincent – is a excellent horror collection featuring new and old short stories all about flight and the horror that comes with it.
Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James – is an African fantasy novel, that delves into African folk lore. It is about a group of beings that are sent on a mission to track a missing boy that might or might not have powers of his own. This is the first of a trilogy. I’m half way through it, it is written really well and deals with a lot of issues mainly LGTBQ issues, but dips in to feminism, and family struggles. The word are great and spoken like poetry with lots of hidden meaning so it is taking me a little time to get through it.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein – I want to read this before the movie comes out next week, starring Kevin Costner, Milo Ventimiglia, and Amanda Seyfried. This is a book told from a perspective of a dog as his owner is a race car driver and life happens.
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly – This book is about three separate women’s journeys through the events of World War II. It’s fiction but based on real character’s, my girlfriend recommended it, and our taste are similar.
The Girl with All the Gifts and The Boy on the Bridge by M. R. Carey – I’ve heard only good things about this series that take place in the same world and involves kids with special powers. Joss Whedon creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer says they are can’t miss.
Goosebumps The Curse of the Mummy by R.L. Stine my quest to read the goose bumps books in order continues, I will also read Say Cheese and Die but that is on my kindle.
IT by Stephen King – This has been on the list to read for quite some time, and I really want to read it before IT Chapter 2 comes out on September 6th. I loved the first one so much I find no better time than to read it.
Dark Age by Pierce Brown – Which is book 5 in the Red Rising series I was a huge fan of the first three, the forth was good but, not as good as the others, I still look forward to this series and am 2 people behind checking it out at the library.
The Passengers by John Marrs – a netgalley read about a plot where driverless cars kidnap separate people all to play a sinister game, this book has already came out in England and has Garnered some incredible reviews, very much look forward to this one that releases on August 27th in America.
Say Cheese and Die By R. L. Stine the forth Goosebumps book in the original series, it is the adapted TV episode that featured a young Ryan Gosling in it.
