September TBR and reading plan 2020

August was great! I wonder how September lives up to that…

August was a month filled with big books and so many good books that I loved and enjoyed. I’m not sure how September will live up to this.

I managed 10 books in total in August. A full wrap-up can be found here. But I’m pleased with my August efforts and I hope I can keep the steam going.

September will also be Becca’s Bookoplathon for the entire month and I made a separate TBR for that. I have not included those books in here but there are 5 books there. Luckily I got no doubles so its didnt screw me ovwer. In addition and on this TBR I have 3 ARC’s, half a tome, some library books are coming off hold as well. All in all, I have 8 complete books and 2 already started books. Should be ok 🙂

Let’s dive in!

The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. It the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – it’s been on my TBR since April… let’s just read it

All The Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace – I have started this book already and so far so good. All I need to do is finish it 🙂

A Deathly Education by Naomi Novik – She back! Naomi Novik is due out with a new book which takes place on a magical boarding school where graduations mean you survive!

The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R. F. Kuang – I’m feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity of reading this whole series via e-ARCs. For every single instalment I managed to get an ARC. And this is turning out to be one of my all time favourite series. I do really need to buy a set for myself at some point. I’m a little reluctant to read the final instalment but at the same time I really want to dive back in to see where it all ends.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V E Schwab – OMG! I can’t believe I manage to get and ARC for this!!! I’m so excited! Aaaah!

Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev – a retelling of Persuasion by Jane Austin which is my all time favourite Jane Austen, so I had to pick up this retelling.

Help Me! by Marianne Power – the author questions the effects of self help books so she seeks them out and trues them! She does one book a month for a whole year to see if it works. I can only imagine this being funny and super interesting as I wonder the same thing.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – This is my big read of the year! For the last three years I’ve read one 800+ page classic a year. It all started with Les Miserable, then Anna Karenina and last year was Gone With The Wind. However, in those previous years I started the book towards the end of the year leaving me to rush to finish it on New Years Eve. I have finish all those three long classics just before midnight every time. Three years running! I won’t have it this year! This year I’m starting yearly. And hopefully finishing in a decent time too. I hope to finish it sometime around summer so you’ll see this book a lot on my posts.

Update April: I didn’t manage to get started on this in March like I planned to. Maybe this month will be better…! I need to make a start on this. If I can do single-digit progress on this book I will be very happy 😀

Update May: This is the 3rd month I have it on my TBR without actually starting it… Though I have opened it and read part of the introduction… which isn’t saying much but hey! its a small step forward though I don’t count that as starting the book.

Update June: AAAAAARG!!! Just get started on it already!!!

Update July: ……………………………………………………………………..*eye roll* still not started. I might save it for TomeTopple in August tho.

Update August: oh yeah! i almost for got about this book. Maybe I should incorporate this into TomeTopple?

Update September: I only have 30 hours left! Yay! So that means I’ve done about 22 hours and 4 short hours away from halfway 🙂

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

What’s on your September TBR?

Happy reading!

    1. The longer Gods of Jade and Shadow stays on my TBR the more positive stuff I hear about it. I’m getting more and more interested in reading it. Hopefully I’ll read it this month.

      I hope I enjoy them too but I have a feeling TBG will hurt…

  1. I actually finished Anna Karenina in like the first two or three days of August.

    The full reads, which was actually The Shades of Magic Trilogy, did not really like me that long.

    I did manage to start reading Bleak House in August

    1. Aah this month only is the readathon version of Bookopoly and it’s called Bookoplathon. Becca does Bookoploy every month to choose her TBR but this month we all join in for a full month TBR. It’s a lot of fun but I get it. It’s a commitment to do a month full readathon. It’s also nice to have calm months. I already have November set off as a month without readathons and minimal reading just for a break. So I get it 😁
