It’s the second day of the month, which means it’s time to tell you my August TBR!
Let’s get started!
1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling
Synopsis: It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
Okay, this one surprises no one, so I’m just going to move on.
2. The McCullagh Inn in Maine by Jen McLaughlin
Synopsis: Chelsea McCullagh escapes to Maine with a gun and fresh bruises. She’s ready to begin anew-until she runs into her old flame, Jeremy Holland. As he helps to fix her inn, her heart heals and they rediscover what they once loved about each other. But as the two play house, it starts to seem too good to last.
I’m a big fan of romance novels, and these new Bookshots novels seem like a great way to get my romance fix in.
3. Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff
Synopsis: Waverly Camdenmar spends her nights running until she can’t even think. Then the sun comes up, life goes on, and Waverly goes back to her perfectly hateful best friend, her perfectly dull classes, and the tiny, nagging suspicion that there’s more to life than student council and GPAs. Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned in the park. He is at risk of not graduating, he does not care, he is no one. He is not even close to being in Waverly’s world. But then one night Waverly falls asleep and dreams herself into Marshall’s bedroom—and when the sun comes up, nothing in her life can ever be the same. In Waverly’s dreams, the rules have changed. But in her days, she’ll have to decide if it’s worth losing everything for a boy who barely exists.
I’ve been waiting for this book ever since I heard Brenna Yovanoff talk about it at a book festival I went to in March, so I’m super excited to finally read it!
4. Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
Synopsis: When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the gameknows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating–Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?
I’m probably going to see this movie in the next few days, and I had no idea it was book, so I had to pick it up at Target when I saw it.
And that’s it for my August TBR!
I’m excited to read these books and post my reviews for them when I finish!
See you then!
