August TBR (2017)

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And it's August! I can't believe there's only 5 months left from the year!
But with another month comes another TBR.
So here's my TBR for the month of August!

1. Songs About Us (Songs About A Girl #2), by Chris Russell
Even though I finished this book yesterday, I'm still including it because it is still on the August TBR. This is the sequel to Songs About A Girl, and it takes place a couple of months after Songs About A Girl has ended in terms of times. I can't disclose too much about the plot because it's the second book in the series but when Charlie returns, she notices something that something has changed. But she's changed as well.
Because I wrote a review on the first book in the trilogy, I will also be reviewing this one too, because I have a lot of thoughts on it!
Pages: 419



2. Aaru (The Aaru Cycle #1), by David Meredith
If you've been here since the beginning, last February I received a free copy of The Reflections of Queen Snow White, and I received a free copy for an honest review.
This is what I'm doing now, reading the book and giving an honest review.
And I have high hopes for this, considering how much I enjoyed The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
All I know about this book is that it's about a girl that has cancer and her family. She dies, but not before she leaves an imprint of her brain, memories, happy feelings, and when she dies, she is able to come back alive, though how, I don't know yet.
I'll be reviewing this at some point this month.

3. All That She Can See, by Carrie Hope Fletcher
This was one of the books that I planned to read for the readathon, but I didn't get to it due to lack of time. But I'm hoping to get to it fairly soon so I can read about magic, and romance, and a lot of description about baking, which I am really looking forward to. Pages: 351

4. Us (One Day #2), by David Nicholls  
Although this is the sequel to the well-known book One Day, as far as I know, there are no previous links to the first book, which is why I'm not re-reading that one. But this seems like a short but sweet read, and a good ending to One Day. (By the way, since this is the sequel, I'm counting it as a duology, like I did with the Me Before You duology- I'M COUNTING IT). This is about a couple- an artist and a scientist- that have been married for more than twenty years. They are all set to go on a holiday with their only son. When their marriage ends, out of nowhere. So in a last ditch attempt to save his marriage, Douglas decides to take them anyway. What could possibly go wrong?               Pages: 397


5. The Circle, by Dave Eggers
This was a book that was on last month's TBR, and for some reason I did not get to it. Maybe because I just wasn't in the mood? But I am determined to finish all of my TBR by the end of the year, and that means reading this. It doesn't actually seem that bad, it's got a lot of mystery and intrigue and sneaking around, which sounds really exciting! More on the wrap up (when I eventually finish this). Looking forward to reading this and sharing my thoughts (either in a review or my august wrap up). Pages: 491

6. The Chemist, by Stephenie Meyer
This was also on my TBR for July, and it was yet another book that I did not get to last month. But I am determined to complete it, because 1) Stephenie Meyer, for one thing, and 2) It's a crime novel that promises to be super intense and fast paced. This is the story of an ex agent, that is on the run from her agency company, and she must take on one final mission, which could clear her name and save her life. And the information she has recently acquired makes this mission all the more dangerous. This sounds gripping and exciting and I can't wait to read it!

So that is my August TBR (2017)! I chose these books because next month is my birthday and I want to be able to get the final books that will finish the Mistborn trilogy (so I can finish those), and the INFERNAL DEVICES (finally)!
So if you guys have read any of these and have any thoughts, or you will be reading one of these this month, let me know in the comments!
I hope you have a wonderful day, and I will see you all on Friday, with my review of Crooked Kingdom!
Byeeeee!
