Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
I apologize for posting this months’ TBR so late, I haven’t had any time to write blog posts lately! This month, I will be participating in #ARCAugust hosted by @shellyzev on bookstagram (a fellow canadian blogger/bookstagrammer!). Basically, the main and only goal is to read and review as many fall ARCs as possible! I have a ton of ARCs to review for September, so I am obviously jumping in on this readathon!
The first book I plan to read this month is SWIPE RIGHT FOR MURDER by Derek Milman. I am SO excited to read this new YA thriller! I have read quite a few YA thrillers this year, but have had a lot of mixed reviews for them. I have seen many fabulous reviews for this book in particular, so I am really looking forward to reading it! Thanks to HBG Canada for this ARC!
The second book I plan to read is HIM by Clare Empson. This is an adult thriller that has been out in the UK since 2018, but will be released in Canada in just a few weeks! I haven’t heard much about this one, but the blurb is incredibly intriguing! Thanks to HBG Canada for this beautiful ARC!
I then plan on reading LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE by Celeste Ng. I have had this book on my past three (?) TBRs, so I really really hope to get to it this month!
The fourth book I hope to read is ANYA AND THE DRAGON by Sofiya Pasternack. I have had my eye on this book ever since Fernanda from Raincoast Books talked about it at the most recent TeensRead Feed event. I am SO happy to have an ARC in my possession, and definitely plan to read it this month! Thanks to Raincoast Canada for this ARC!
Since I have several intense thrillers on this TBR, I have decided to include a cute contemporary ARC set to release in September – A MATCH MADE IN MEHENDI by Nandini Bajpai! I haven’t heard any hype about this one (yet!), but am really looking forward to reading this! Thanks to HBG Canada for the ARC!
The next book I plan to read is FRANKLY IN LOVE by David Yoon. This is part of Penguin Teen’s must read books for the upcoming season, which makes me even more excited to read it! David Yoon is married to Nicola Yoon, an extremely popular YA author. It’s so cool how they are both becoming well-known authors in the world of YA! Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada for the ARC!
The last book I hope to read this month is THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY by Alix E. Harrow. This book has been gaining a lot of popularity recently, as the cover is beautiful and it’s being compared to Seanan McGuire’s fantasy series! I received an exclusive ARC from HBG Canada – thanks to them for sending it to me!
Those are all of the books – mostly ARCs – that I plan to read this month! What are you planning to read in August?
Good Night Book Owls!

Oo I didn’t know that David Yoon was the Nicola Yoon’s husband! That’s really awesome 🙂 I’m even more excited to read that book now! I’ve heard so many great things about The Ten Thousand Doors of January as well. Hope you enjoy all these 😃
That is some book haul, I read Little Fires Everywhere last year. It is quite a slow book but good.

Good luck with your TBR! I’m hoping to read Swipe Right for Murder this month as well. I can’t wait to read Frankly in Love.
