To Be Read List – August 2019

We’re hitting the lazy days of summer here in the Northeast! The heat is INTENSE lately, so it seems everyone is soaking up the AC indoors. With more heat ahead, here is my to be read list for August 2019.

To Be Read List – August 2019:


City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

This novel just came out in June, but it’s already hitting best of 2019 lists! You may know Elizabeth Gilbert from her memoir, Eat Pray Love. However, this historical fiction book is a complete 180 degree pivot. It’s set in the world of theater in the 1940’s.





Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes

I won this and City of Girls in a Bookstagram giveaway! Admittedly, I already started reading this one because I couldn’t help myself. An aging baseball player comes to live with a widower in a small town in New England. They each agree not to talk about their pasts…but of course that doesn’t last long. I’m expecting this to be one of my favorites of the year!





Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren

I am thrilled that Scribd has practically every Christina Lauren book!! I’ll be over here flying through ALL of their novels. Dating You / Hating You features Carter and Evie, two Hollywood agents who start a tentative relationship. Things are going great until their companies merge and they find themselves fighting for the same job.






Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny

On to #5! I picked up a bunch of Louise Penny books at a local book sale. I can tell this is a series I’ll reread again at some point. If you’re new to good ol’ Inspector Gamache, I’d highly recommend starting at the beginning with Still Life.

August 2019 To Be Read List


  1. I hear so many great things about the Louise Penny books but I tried Still Life on audio and it felt so boring. I stopped after an hour. Maybe I should read them? I also have Evvie and City of Girls on my August reading list along with The Silent Patient and Behind Her Eyes.

    1. Hmm, I haven’t tried any on audio, but I know it can be a vastly different experience. I do remember enjoying Still Life pretty much right off the bat, so maybe it’s just not for you? Tough to say…

  2. Oooh I LOVED Evvie Drake – hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Such a good summer read. And I think #5 might be one of my favorites in Louise Penny’s series, so that’s a good one to look forward to.

    This is such a fun idea for a linkup – I was inspired to put together a list of my current top TBR picks to share too 🙂
