TBR Mix N’ Mingle – August 2018

Welcome to TBR Mix n’ Mingle, a brand new monthly linkup where you can share your TBR list! I’m co-hosting this linkup with Literary Quicksand and Allison at My Novel Life. Join us on the first Wednesday of each month and linkup your TBR posts!  

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – I absolutely loved Gaiman’s Stardust and The Ocean at the End of the Lane, so I’m eager to jump into another one of his.  

The Princess Bride by William Goldman – After listening to As You Wish, I’m excited to read the book! I also have plans to rewatch the movie for the 10th time 🙂 

Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave – I’m clearly a late-comer to this one, but I was always a bit hesitant because I didn’t like Cleave’s other famous novel, Little Bee. I’m hoping the WWII setting will win me over.

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – I picked this out as my Book of the Month not long ago, but got distracted by a few library requests arriving. I’m seeing great reviews, so it should be fun!

The Library Book by Susan Orlean – This is the first ebook I requested on NetGalley, but I still need to get around to actually reading it! It focuses on the mystery surrounding who set fire to the Los Angeles public library as well as the general history of libraries.

 

Don’t forget to visit Literary Quicksand and Allison at My Novel Life as well as a few other bloggers in the linkup!

Our next linkup will be Wednesday, September 5th!

      Haha! It seems like anything featured by Book of the Month automatically is read by EVERYONE.

    Oh, too bad you didn’t like Little Bee. Everyone Brave Is Forgiven is different, but it has kind of a surprising amount of humor in the dialogue, despite the dark topic. It’s different than a lot of WWII books I’ve read. I have a “story of the story” post about the history and how Cleave wrote it, if you’re interested.

    Otherwise looks like some nice light reads to round out the summer!

      I always appreciate humor in tough topics, so that’s good to hear. Thanks for the heads up about your post – I’ll check it out!
