August TBR List!

Okay, I think I did okay with this list last month, didn't read all of them, but I still ended up reading a lot more due to the TBR list, So I decided to do it again!
 
I read more than I did in June in July so I'm very proud of myself. I ended up reading 6 books total so I doubted the book count that I read in June. I don't know if I can pass 6 books this month, so I'm just gonna put up 6 books and if I go through those I will add more :) 2 of these I got for review as well, so I kinda had to throw them in there for due dates on the reviews/tours.

So...

My picks....

First I want to say in this list is one book I already picked from my jar, but I will also hopefully pick one more as well!

For the rest of my list....


City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones
By: Cassandra Clare

Goodreads | Amazon

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .

Running from RomeoRunning from Romeo
By: Diane Mannino

Goodreads

Emilia King is entering her senior year at Santa Barbara University. For the past three years, she lived in the library – doing what she knows best – focusing on her studies and forgetting her past…a past that has forever changed her life. But this year marks a new beginning…

Logan Prescott is not only the hottest guy on campus, he’s heir to a billionaire hotel fortune. Emilia knows he’s trouble and should stay clear of him. But his notorious good looks and piercing blue eyes make him simply irresistible – especially when he’s quoting her favorite literary works.

Intrigued by Emilia’s innocence and resistance to his charm, Logan discovers she’s a challenge he simply can’t resist. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but running from him may be impossible.

 


Always Wanted (Xander Barns, #1)Always Wanted
By: Sarah Tork

Goodreads | Amazon

If someone were to have told me a year ago, that by the end of this year I was going to break up with Ben my boyfriend of five years and leave my family home to move to a different city to start a new life, I’d have told them they were crazy. There was no way something like that could happen. Ever!

It did happen.

Twenty two year old university drop out Marisa Gelly’s relaxed lifestyle takes a turn for the worse when she arrives early at Kyle Matthews’s annual Halloween Bash to find her boyfriend making out with another girl. Heartbroken she sets off to a brand new city to get away from her family who thinks she’s made the biggest mistake of her life, breaking up with Ben.

For the first time in her life, Marisa’s doing everything on her own and she loves it. A brand new city, a brand (sort of) new job, and a hunky, dreamy late night customer who shows her the kinds of things he likes to do.

This year will be nothing like last year.




The Elite (The Selection, #2)The Elite
By: Kiera Cass

Goodreads | Amazon

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.
