September 2020 TBR

This month’s Unread Shelf Challenge for the Unread Shelf Challenge hosted by Whitney at The Unread Shelf is to read books on your unread shelf that you’ve had so long, you forgot where they came from. I actually have a mind that remembers everything and even though I looked at my shelves to compile my TBR, I truly know where most of my books came from. Even though I’m not following the prompt exactly, I’m still getting books off my unread shelf…and that’s all that really matters to me!

To help me whiddle down my books, I have a few categories I’d like to try to hit each month:

  • A Backlist Title: All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung
    • This book was HOT a few years ago but I never seemed to be able to get around to it! It’s time to read it and enjoy it, or get it off my shelves!
  • A BOTM Title: The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan
    • Another book that I’ve heard great things about and has been on my shelves way too long!
  • A Nonfiction Title: Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice To Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed With Alcohol by Holly Whitaker
    • My husband and I went spontaneously sober four months ago. Long before I made that decision though, I was irritated with the culture of drinking I see among people my age – especially moms. I think this book will be interesting!
  • A NetGalley/Edelweiss Title: Rabbits For Food by Binnie Kirshenbaum
    • This one has been on my NetGalley shelf for so long. I’d only seen one review for it but the reviewer said it was the most accurate and honest look at depression she’d read…I added it to my TBR immediately and then promptly forgot about it!
  • A Memoir: Coreography by Corey Feldman
    • The recent news about the corruption of Hollywood and the elite pedophile ring made this one jump out at me when I was looking at my shelves for books. It’s been long known that Corey Feldman claims he was raped as a young child so I’m curious to read his memoir.
  • At least 2 physical ARCs
    • Hollywood Park by Mikel Jollett
      • Not only do I have a physical ARC of this one, but I also have it on NetGalley…so it’s time to kill two birds with one stone!
    • Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland
      • This one strikes me as a lighter read…I’m hoping it will be!

Other books up for consideration:

  • Dear Mrs Bird
  • Sunburn
  • Washington Black
  • The Mercies
  • Bridge of Clay

What books are on your list of hopefuls for September?

  1. I bought White Fragility back in May. I know that isn’t a very long time, especially when I have books that have been waiting for years, but I feel it is too important of a subject to wait on. I’ve placed it on my desk, so now I’m reading in between work calls each day!
