Another month, another crazy TBR.


Jasper and Thunderstruck are already in progress, so I should get through those two!


Sunne in Splendour is a re-read that I am excited about. My local book club has been making selections based on the members' favorite books, and this month is mine. Yay!


The Hangman's Daughter is the selection for More Historical than Fiction, so join us in reading and discussing this. Last month's book, Colour of Poison, was awesome.


What are you excited about reading in August?
