Hello, friends! Can you believe it’s already September?! I am super excited and ready for fall. This is my first ever TBR! I figured it was a good month to start because August was such a terrible reading month for me. But since I feel myself coming out of my two-month-long reading slump a bit, I think that prioritizing and focusing my reading might be just what I need. There’s a very good chance that I will not get to all of these books, but a girl can dream, right? So, without further ado, here’s what I hope to read in September!
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
This one has been on my list since it came out, but I just haven’t gotten to it. I’ve heard lots of good things, including a few reviews that say that it’s mainly focused on the main character’s mental health — OCD and spiraling thoughts. I am super interested in stories dealing with issues like that, and I have a lot of them on my shelves. I have been toying with the idea of reading a bunch of them and creating a list of the best. Let me know if this is something you’d be interested in!
What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum
This is another book involving mental health — it’s a dual perspective story and one of the characters has autism. I haven’t heard a whole lot about this one, but I know it is one of Merphy Napier’s favorites. I think it will be an easy contemporary to read, but I am also hoping that it’s a pretty hard-hitting, good representation of autism.
And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman
Fredrik Backman is all the rage on Bookstagram, but I haven’t really had much interest in reading any of his books. However, I heard about this one, and, since I’m a sucker for novellas, I was excited to find it at my library book sale the other day. I know this one is supposed to be terribly sad, but I’ve also heard it’s thought-provoking and life-changing. So, I guess we’ll see?
After Anna by Lisa Scottoline
I’m going to buddy read this one with my mom this month, and we’re both going to listen to it on audio since we don’t own a hard copy of it. I’ve only read one Lisa Scottoline book before (Look Again) years ago, but my mom is a big fan and has read a lot of her books. We decided on a whim to read one of her books together, and I’m really excited about it! This could be the beginning of a monthly tradition.
