August Reading List

It's crazy that it's already August. Seriously, where is the year going? August's to-read pile is actually looking a lot more ambitious than what I'm showing in this post. Due to an influx of borrowed books (whoops) I'm having to get through a lot more books this month but let's be real, I don't mind that in the slightest. Anyway, here's what is on my reading list this month..

Paper Towns by John Green-Now this is a re-read which is totally inspired by my newfound enthusiasm after watching the film last month. I'm currently reading this and I'm not sure why I was so disinterested by it the first time. It's definitely not my favourite John Green novel but it's not an awful book or story by any means. If you like coming of age novels, roadtrips, literary references and treasure hunts you'll like this.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? & Other Concerns by Mindy Kaling-After seeing this book over on Essiebutton's #buttonbookshelf videos I swiftly added it to my wishlist and ended up buying it whilst I was in Sydney. It's not a big book so I think I'll get through it really quickly. This read is well timed too given her second book is being released in October.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews-I finished this one up on the weekend and really enjoyed it. It earned itself 3.5 stars from me over on Goodreads. Despite the somewhat depressing title I really did enjoy this book. While the main character was a bit of a jerk at times I feel like his behaviour was justified. It's actually quite funny and I liked the loose, diary-entry like structure to each chapter. 

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood + Girls in Pants by Ann Brashares-Some more re-reads. If you saw my library haul last week then you'll know this series was one of my favourites growing up and I am looking forward to diving back into them again. The fact it's told from four different perspectives really appeals to me as well because you get everyone's angle on events.

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee*-The highly anticipated sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird, one of my favourite books from my English Literature days came out last month. There's been mixed reviews about this book given some of the major new plot developments since TKAMB finished off. However I am looking forward to reading it and seeing what's changed in the Finch world, society in general and where they all are now.
