ARC August TBR Pile

ARC AugustThe TBR lists never end! To try and get a few ARCs off my TBR list I am going to participate in the 5th Annual ARC August Challenge hosted by Octavia @ Read. Sleep. Repeat. This is the fifth year that Octavia is hosting the challenge.

I’ve made an ambitious reading list. We’ll see what I can get through this month!

1. Indelible by Adelia Saunders

I started reading this a little bit during Booktube-A-Thon, but since I am not sure if I will finish it, I am putting it at the top of this list for ARC August. It’s about a girl who can see things written on people’s skin and I just love that concept.

2. The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

The last time I read anything set in 1969, it was The Girls by Emma Cline last year. This book sounds like it’s right up my ally. It’s about four adolescents who sneak out to hear from a psychic about the day they’re going to die, and then how each other them process that information.

3. The Goddesses by Swan Huntley

I finally got around to read We Could Be Beautiful by Swan Huntley, her book that came out last year, and I am kind of excited to read The Goddesses. Yes, I thought Catherine West was frustrating, but I really liked Swan Huntley’s writing style. So I am going to see if I can devour this one right now.

4. Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett

This book just sounds delightfully weird and it’s ended up on my WWW Wednesdays for a couple weeks now. So, its time to actually pick it up.  I mean, you have a precocious kid and the death of her mother. This can be pretty adorable.

5. Hanna Who Fell From the Sky by Christopher Meades

This just looks great! I found out about it through a NetGalley newsletter, but it sounds so amazing and I can’t wait to read it.  I love the description and the concept, and I cannot wait to give it a read.

6. See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

This alternative history of the Lizzie Borden murder case sounds fascinating to me and I can’t wait to read it. Murder at the end of the 19th century. It’s pre-fingerprinting, pre-DNA, this is going to be like Agatha Christie.

7. The Visitors by Catherine Burns

I love a good murder mystery, and Catherine Burns’ debut sounds like it is totally my speed. It’s about siblings that live in a decaying Georgian townhouse, and there are secrets in the cellar.

8. The Address by Fiona Davis

I read The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis late last year, my very overdue review is coming up soon, but I am so excited that Fiona Davis is visiting another piece of architecture and populating it with amazing characters.

9. It’s Always the Husband by Michelle Campbell

I am not sure I like the title of this book, but I am going to give it a read because I could use a good contemporary mystery about three friends.

So that’s my list of things to read for ARC August! Have you heard of any of these titles? Are you participating in ARC August? Tell me what you plan on reading in the comments below!
