Happy August!!! August is always bittersweet for me. The weather is so nice and the ocean beaches by me are finally warm enough for me to willingly swim in them… but it also means summer is ending and school will be starting back up again, which is much less fun.
Luckily, there are plenty of great books coming out this month to distract us from the semester starting!! Typically, summer is weaker in releases than fall, but we do have quite a few good books coming out in August!

I used to be terrified of readathons. Making a strict TBR and sticking to it had always intimidated me, and honestly, it still does. But then I joined the Reading Rush last month, and actually had a really good time (even though I didn’t read all 7 books). So now, I’m hoping to do the same thing with the Disney-A-Thon.
I mean, Disney kinda is the one true love of my life, so I feel like I have to.
If you haven’t heard of the Disney-A-Thon, it’s a readathon that takes place over the month of August. You pick a team (go team Tangled!), and complete challenges to earn points. Each team has their own list of challenges, but once you finish those, you can do other team’s challenges.
If you want more info, check out the Disney-A-Thon on twitter (@disneyreadathon)!
Also, if you’re doing the Disney-A-Thon, I created a spreadsheet that can help you organize your TBR and keep track of your points.
[In case twitter isn’t working- here’s a link to the spreadsheet]
Okay, enough background info, let’s get started talking about my TBR!
