August TBR 2021

Hi all,

Happy August! Today is my Mum’s Birthday so I’m sorry if this feels a little rushed but I wanted to get my TBR up today so I can make a start on it straight away, but also I want to spend time with my Mum. So sorry if it’s a little quick. Anyway, I hope you’ve all been having a good day so far. I’ve not been having some good reading months recently and I am really hopeful that if I give myself a good TBR this month that I’ll get back to my good reading habits. Anywho, let’s jump into my August TBR.

My Book Club’s Read:

Dynasty by Sheridan Ann. I have no idea what this is about, I just know it’s a RH (Reverse Harem) which isn’t usually my jam but we’ll give it a shot and see because I’ve heard good things.

Intimidating. Fearless. Destructive.
They’re everything a girl shouldn’t want. Too bad this foster girl never had a daddy to chase away the monsters because I’m a sucker for a bad boy … or four.
Carver, King, Cruz, and Grayson—the Kings of Ravenwood Heights.
When I was forced to come here, I was expecting just another run-down town to add to the ever-growing list of unwanted homes. What I wasn’t expecting was them.
They’re dangerous and they’re keeping one hell of a secret—a secret that’s going to change it all.

New Standalone:

My Sweet Oblivion by Danielle Lori. This sounds like such a spicy forbidden romance, with a little mafia/dangerousness to it and I am so excited to pick it up. I meant to start it the other day but got distracted and forgot. Anyway I am loving romances with a little extra grit to them at the moment so this is high on my to read list.

She’s a romantic at heart, living in the most unromantic of worlds . . .
Nicknamed Sweet Abelli for her docile nature, Elena smiles on cue and has a charming response for everything. She’s the favored daughter, the perfect mafia principessa . . . or was.
Now, all she can see in the mirror’s reflection is blood staining her hands like crimson paint. They say first impressions are everything . . .
In the murky waters of New York’s underworld, Elena’s sister is arranged to marry Nicolas Russo. A Made Man, a boss, a cheat—even measured against mafia standards. His reputation stretches far and wide and is darker than his black suits and ties. After his and Elena’s first encounter ends with an accidental glare on her part, she realizes he’s just as rude as he is handsome. She doesn’t like the man or anything he stands for, though that doesn’t stop her heart from pattering like rain against glass when he’s near, nor the shiver that ghosts down her spine at the sound of his voice.
And he’s always near. Telling her what to do. Making her feel hotter than any future brother-in-law should. Elena may be the Sweet Abelli on the outside, but she’s beginning to learn she has a taste for the darkness, for rough hands, cigarettes, and whiskey-colored eyes. Having already escaped one scandal, however, she can hardly afford to be swept up in another.
Besides, even if he were hers, everyone knows you don’t fall in love with a Made Man . . . right?

Nyx by Serena Akeroyd. I have been loving reading MC romances at the moment so a friend sent me a link to this knowing I would love it. So I cannot wait to pick this up because it sounds like a book that I will adore.

He’s dark. 
A brother in my dad’s MC. 
Everything Mom told me to avoid. 
Everything I shouldn’t want.
But his dark, his dirty, and his dangerous are like catnip to me. 
He stirs fear into the hearts of men, but I hear his rage. I feel it like it’s my own.
He’s a killer. Shameless. Some might even call him a psycho. 
I just call him soul mate. 
We were born to raise hell together, born to make sick b*stards pay for their sins, born to be the king and queen of darkness…
Now, the king just needs to get that memo. 

New Series:

The Ladykiller by Martina Cole. I have been wanting to get into more murder/crime fiction and I found this in a Charity shop and thought it sounded super interesting!

George Markham has a nasty little hobby, one that erupts into an orgy of vicious sexual depravity.
Patrick Kelly is a hard man. His one soft spot is his daughter, and when she falls victim to the Grantley Ripper, Kelly wants revenge.
The DI in charge of the case is Kate Burrows. She feels for Kelly but her growing involvement with a known villain is putting her career at risk . . . As the forces of law and order and London’s underworld converge in a huge manhunt, Kate fears she’ll lose everything she’s ever cared about . . . to the ladykiller.

Heat Wave by Richard Castle. I adore the TV show Castle, and this is the book series that Castle bases on him and Beckett in the TV show so when I saw them in the charity shop I had to grab it! Fingers crossed it lives up to how much I love the show because although they don’t follow the same characters, the humour/writing/themes should overlap slightly.

A New York real estate tycoon plunged to his death on a Manhattan sidewalk. A trophy wife with a past survives a narrow escape from a brazen attack. Mobsters and moguls with no shortage of reasons to kill trot out their alibis. And then, in the suffocating grip of a record heat wave, comes another shocking murder and a sharp turn in a tense journey into the dirty little secrets of the wealthy. Secrets that prove to be fatal. Secrets that lay hidden in the dark until one NYPB detective shines a light.
Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the wildly bestselling Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki Heat carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City’s top homicide squads. She’s hit with an unexpected challenge when the commissioner assigns superstar journalist Jameson Rook to ride along with her to research an article on New York’s finest. Pulitzer- Prize-winning Rook is as much a handful as he is handsome. His wisecracking and meddling aren’t her only problems. as she works to unravel the secrets of the murdered real estate tycoon, she must also confront the spark between them. The one called Heat.

That’s my TBR for this month. It’s just a little longer than last months but still manageable so hopefully I will do better and get to all of them this month! I hope you all have a great day and I will see you tomorrow ❤

What is on your TBR this month?
Are you on track for you’re yearly reading goal if you have one?
Are you a Mood Reader or a Planner?
