August TBR!

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:

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

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.

The Monstrumologist by Rick YanceyThe Monstrumologist.jpg

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.

Three Thousand Stitches by Sudha Murty

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.

Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichtondragons teeth.jpg

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.

A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourna curious beginning.jpg

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.
