It’s the first of August today! I don’t know about you but I feel that this year has gone by soooooooo quickly, one minute it was my birthday now it’s just over a month till I start my new course at FE College! Obviously, at the start of every month, a lot of book bloggers and readers like to grab some books together and call it their TBR list. That’s what I’ve done with these classic book selections today.
I was really lucky at taking a photo of the books altogether stacked on my hand because it started raining a few hours ago which could have been disastrous had I left taking an outdoors photo until the afternoon so have some sunshine.
For my August TBR, I’ve gone with six books. I do have other books to read for publishers that aren’t classics (I read practically anything) so I keep everything else separate from this blog. The lengths of all of these range from 90 pages up to 250 pages. Delighted that four Penguin books are on this list with four out of the six books also came from my birthday bash in Hay-On-Wye last month. So, the six books are:
The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan.
As You Like It by William Shakespeare.
The Darling Buds of May by H.E Bates.
Cider With Rosie by Laurie Lee.
Peter Pan by J.M Barrie.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote.
I have a thriller, a play, a book from the series I grew up watching with my parents, a book I’ve talked about previously on this blog, a book which ended up becoming one of my favourite Disney films and a book which inspired the film starring Audrey Hepburn. Overall, a real mix of genres and writing styles.
My reviews for these books will be posted here on this blog as well as my Goodreads where you can join over 2,500 people that currently follow my book reviews! I only write spoiler-free reviews.
Thanks so much for reading this quick TBR post, let me know what classics are on your August TBR list. Which book off of my TBR are you most excited to see a review for? Let me know in the comments section of this post!
