“The English winter, ending in July
To recommence in August.”
– Lord Byron
My TBR is a day late this month because I ended up watching Logan yesterday instead of choosing a new tbr. It’s such a heartbreaking film. I cried so much. Anyway, here’s my August TBR. Even if it is a day late…
A Sicilian Romance by Ann Radcliffe
In A Sicilian Romance (1790) Ann Radcliffe began to forge the unique mixture of the psychology of terror and poetic description that would make her the great exemplar of the Gothic novel, and the idol of the Romantics. This early novel explores the cavernous landscapes and labyrinthine passages of Sicily’s castles and convents to reveal the shameful secrets of its all-powerful aristocracy.
Persuader by Lee Child
Never forgive, never forget. Jack Reacher lives for the moment. Without a home. Without commitment. But he has a burning desire to right wrongs and rewrite his own agonising past. Never apologise. Never explain. When Reacher witnesses a brutal kidnap attempt, he takes the law into his own hands. But a cop dies. Has Reacher lost his sense of right and wrong?
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
Out of this wild night, a strange visitor comes to the Murry house and beckons Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O’Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure – one that will threaten their lives and our universe.
I have about five other books I need to finish before I start any of these. Hopefully August will be a good month for me.
