I got to 1/4 books from my August TBR, and honestly, it was one of my toughest reading months. I went 10 days without reading anything and it was awful. If you want to see my August wrap up, click here.
I chose 5 books for September, and I’m really hoping I do better this month!
Amani is kidnapped by the brutal Vathek empire, and taken in secret to their palace where she is forced to be a body double for their princess. Amani must appear in public for her, and be prepared to die in her place.
“A young woman with a dangerous power she barely understands. A smuggler with secrets of his own. A country torn between a merciless colonial army, a terrifying tyrant, and a feared rebel leader.” (Goodreads)
After escaping the Pit, Mira is on the run with her friends and searching for answers. She must return home and face those who betrayed her to discover the truth, but with her connection to the dragons growing, she fears she’s losing control.
A retelling of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein from the point of view of Elizabeth. “Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.” (Goodreads)
