TBR Mix N’ Mingle – September 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!
September To Be Read List:
My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
My interlibrary loan system managed to snag this book for me! I need to return it in two weeks so it’s time to get crackin’. I keep hearing wonderful things about this love story featuring an American at Oxford University!
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
I took a hiatus from WWII historical fiction novels, but I’m ready to dive back in with The Alice Network. I had to wait two months for this to arrive on hold at my library. Becky over at Literary Quicksand posted a full review last year. Spoiler – she loved it!!
Geekerella by Ashley Poston
I’m pretty sure this third library hold is arriving in Large Print form. It was the only copy in my county’s system, but I’ll take it! From Goodreads, “Part-romance, part-love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.”
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, October 3rd!

My Oxford Year sounds great, just added to my TBR!
I just recently finished The Alice Network, and I was just so-so about it. It was VERY different from what I was expecting. I didn’t read any reviews, so my expectations were gleaned from the Amazon description only. And the endorsement from Reese Witherspoon. I was thinking after all the hype that I’d be reading another The Nightingale, but it wasn’t close. I still ended up enjoying the book, but it took me a really long time to get into it, and if it hadn’t been so hyped and rec’d by my favorite Southern Belle, I probably would have given up. I’m happy I stuck with it, but it’s not something I’d gush about in the WWII recommendation way that I would so many others.
Nice mix of books this month! I’ll be interested in your thoughts on The Alice Network. That one’s sitting on my shelf as well!
I loved Alice Network. Hope you do too! Geekerella sounds fun. Fractured fairytales are the next big thing! If you like geek-y stuff, I loved The Impossible Fortress.
Add me to the list of Alice Network fans! I’m eager to hear what you think.
These books sound great! Don’t you love it when all your holds come in at once? I just picked up 3 this morning!
I have the audiobook of Alice Network out from the library right now – need to get started on it!
Geekerella is such a great book for someone who loves fairytale retellings and sci-fi 🙂 I wished I could jump right into this world. I hope you enjoy your books!
I’ve heard such great things about Geekerella! I hope you enjoy it! Have a lovely month! 🙂
