Top 5 Anticipated Reads: August 2022

After looking through my anticipated reads for the last year, I’ve decided I will NOT be going over 5 lol That one 9 really messed with my numbers (ok maybe only by a few percentages but still). So the 6 I had listed… we’re booting one lol. Don’t worry I’ll tell you the “honourable mention” at the end, but it wont count against me when I do a check in later lol

In release date order, here are my top 5 (and 1 honourable mention) anticipated books for August 2022.

Recommendations: Five Spooky Middle Grades

I find myself wanting to make recommendations lists from time to time, but don’t always have a specific post or reason in mind. With that thought in mind, I’d thought from time to time I’d do random recommendations. These recommendations could fit a theme of the month or genre’s I’ve been gravitating towards. I’ve done a couple now, Five Adult RomComs and Nine LGBTQIA+ Reads, and thought I’d quickly do another.

In May I read a lot of spooky middle grades – really a lot of horror that month because that’s just want I had been wanting to read. So with that in mind, in no particular order, here are five spooky middle grades that I’ve read recently that I’d recommend. Oh and a big thank you to Melanie from TBR and Beyond who has been feeding my spooky middle grade needs lol.

2022 Goals: Priority Series | Quarter 2 Check-in

I’m already dreading this check-in. I’m 99% sure that nothing has changed since last quarter, as far as my series are concerned. I have one I’m planning on reading this month, but I think that’s the only change (one I can’t even guarantee will happen lol). I’ve already looked at a couple of other goals from this year: 10 Bookish Goals, 2022 Most Anticipated & 22 Books in 2022.

Same break down as last time (see below in pink), but if I’ve read in in the 2nd quarter you’ll find Q2 in the square brackets too.

Same breakdown as last time: look for the update in square brackets [ ] to find out if I’ve read it or not. I’ll also include links to my review if I’ve written one OR just a star rating if I’ve read it but not reviewed.
