August 2021 TBR

I am not ready for this list. I need to read the books, but I have no interest in reading anything right now. I am burned out. Sigh. Anyway, let's see if I can piece together a list for what to read in August.

The Premonition by Michael Lewis - I'm still working on this one. It's good. It's depressing. I feel smart reading it, though.

Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart - I got the ebook of this one. It's going better for me reading the words instead of listening to it. The accents were way too thick for me to follow the story.

Anti-Diet: Reclaim Your Time, Money, Well-Being, and Happiness Through Intuitive Eating by Christy Harrison - After all my run-ins with doctors about my knee, it's come to my attention that I should deal with my weight. Every time I think I've found the answer, it eludes me again. Anyway, I've heard some things about intuitive eating, so I'll look into it. Dieting is hard when you are responsible for feeding other people whose intuition is telling them something different from yours.

Intuitive Eating: An Anti-Diet Revolutionary Approach by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch - Honestly, I'd rather read fiction or any other kind of nonfiction. Well, maybe not historical biography. But, they aren't huge books, so here we go.

Switch by A. S. King - I like King's books. Also, this one is small. Probably be able to get through it. I got it from the library already, so here we go.

The Iron Raven by Julie Kagawa - I got this from the library again. Hope I can get through it this time.

The Life I'm In by Sharon G. Flake - This is a sequel to a book Draper published over a decade ago called The Skin I'm In. I hear this is great and it's small.

Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon - I liked the last Nicola Yoon book I read, and this cover is fabulous. No idea what it's about but it's on the award list.

Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer - I don't even know if I'll get this one in August, but I'm putting it here just in case.

Blade of Secrets by Tricia Levenseller - I started this one this week. I've heard it's good and I've liked the others of Levenseller's books I've read, so here's hoping it gets me out of my slump. It's about a girl who is a maker of magical weapons.

Dustborn by Erin Bowman - I've heard this is pretty good, too. Erin Bowman has written several YA westerns and this one goes a step further and makes it a dystopian western.

In Deeper Waters by F. T. Lukens - This looks like fun. It's a gay pirate story.

Ok. That's 12 books. Probably, I'm going to go to the Sequoyah meeting on Monday and this whole list will change. I'm okay with that. I'm not really married to this list. I'll just stick different books on for the ones that get removed.
