Reading | Fall TBR 2020

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Today I'm talking about my Fall TBR, not to be confused with my annual October Reading Challenge.

I've been out of the reading scene for awhile now and I'm not really sure why. I had such a strong start in the beginning of 2020 and then suddenly I didn't. I like the way my husband explains it; "I wouldn't call you stopping more like you're just taking an extended break,"

I did manage to complete my goal of reading 2 books last month (just barely tbh) and I'm aiming for 2 more this month. I hope to get through these books (somehow) before October. I chose these to get me in the Fall mood! And also because they've been on my TBR forever that I should just read them already!

All but 2 are from either Owlcrate or Owlcrate JR.

I've heard such good things about all of these reads that I feel like I'm missing out by taking so long to read them already! I'm currently starting on Shadow of the Fox and House of Salt and Sorrows.

Weirdly enough I don't really have any Kindle/ebooks for this challenge! That's definitely a first.

This is one I'm super excited to get into! The cover is stunning, I love the art style. And it sounds really interesting as well. You can read about it here on Goodreads! I find that most middle grade reads have super heavy themes and some have been know to make me feel like my heart is breaking and choke me up a bit. It's crazy! I guess because it's the concept of kids having to deal with this crap when they shouldn't have to? I'm not sure but I get emotionally invested for sure.

Do you have any books you plan to read this week/month?


  1. I added 'The Time of Green Magic' on my Goodreads account :D It does look stunning! I agree! Middle grade reads for me, for all of the things I've read, always carves it's way into my heart, because kids shouldn't have to deal with scary/heavy stuff all on their own.

    My book that I plan to finish reading this month is E.K. Johnston's "Queen's Peril" on audiobook :D It's read by Catherine Taber and she has a lovely voice.

    I hope you're having a lovely day x

    1. Agreed!! I feel like as children they shouldn't have to be put through those things... it's definitely heart tugging but I guess that's also a good thing right?! To find a book that makes you feel things!
