Very, very late for this one but I figure I might as well do it.
Hello, folks! This is the list of books I’m planning on reading in the month of August. I was supposed to do this post earlier in the month but I was traveling with my family for a while and simply couldn’t. Also, since I’m already late I thought it would be better not to set too high a target.
Here is what I plan to read in August:
I was recommended this book by a friend of mine and she was kind enough to lend me her copy. All I know about this is that there is a young woman who has a miniature replica of her own home and hires a miniaturist to furnish and fill up the replica house with their real life counterparts. Seems very intriguing and interesting and I cannot wait to read it.
I found this book while watching a Youtube (sorry Booktube) video and I loved the idea of it! It’s about this young man who becomes an assistant for the good doctor specializing in the study of monsters. Ever since I read A Natural History of Dragons (which I also loved) I realized that I like this style of scientific or academic approach being taken towards mythical, magical creatures. This was also described as a scary book and that excites me even more.

This is the Book of the Month for my book club – yes, I’m a part of a bookclub! I’ve always wanted to be in a book club. I was ecstatic until everyone started recommending non fiction books). While I am a bit reluctant to get into this, I shall strive to read this one.
This one came in the Big Book Box for July (theme Apocalypse). I’ve never read anything by Michael Crichton; it was only when I searched the book on Goodreads that I found out Jurassic Park was originally a book. Yes. I live under a rock. But the blurb seems promising as does the cover.
I was ordering a couple of books on Amazon when my eyes fell on this cover. It’s a mystery set in historical times, a strong willed female protagonist and I suspect a decent dose of chaperoned – or not – romance; of course I added it to my cart.
Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if the books I do end up reading this month are not even up there. I’m quite the adrenaline junkie.
