Pete’s August TBR
I have an ambitious stack this month, which includes two longer tomes: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien and Treason’s Shore by Sherwood Smith. That will wrap up the two fantasy series I’m in the middle of, so I can finally start… something else! I’m not sure what yet. I’m also reading City of Illusions and The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin, two books from her Hainish Cycle. Lastly, I’m reading Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon after loving The Bluest Eye, and Indiana and I are reading public library by Ali Smith together.
Indiana’s July Wrap-up
I finished everything on my list! It feels like the first time in months that I’ve been able to say that. But I finally had time to play catch up.

This month, I’m less focused on non-fiction as I’ve been this summer. I’m dipping more into children’s literature, in part because I’m searching for ideas. I’ll be reading Page by Tamora Pierce, Virginia Woolf The Common Reader Vol. 1, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, Public Library by Ali Smith, and The Return of the King by J.R. R. Tolkien. I especially want to make sure that I have enough time to re-read Westerfeld’s Uglies series as his latest comes out this fall and I haven’t picked up those books in years so I’ll be needing more than a plot-refresher.
