August TBR List + Upcoming Releases

This month is not really full of life events, but there are two readathons! One is the Lux Readathon going on from the 1st to the 3rd and the other is the 8th Bout of Books starting the 19th. I found a new group on Goodreads - I was invited by a book blogger I've followed from one of the BOBs, I believe. Book BFFs held a challenge in one of the last readathons I participated in. They have a youtube channel and I subscribed almost immediately. I was really excited to find out they had a Goodreads group. So I'm now part of 3 active groups on Goodreads with a ton of awesome bookworms and I love it.

Books leftover:
  • After the Snow by Crockett
  • Shutdown by Heather Anastasiu
