Monthly TBR and Wrap Up

I am officially back. I've had a lot going on with a new position at work, some traveling, and just adjusting to everything. It's impacted my reading and my blogging.

There may be a lot of changes coming to the blog as I decide what I want this to be going forward and you can definitely expect some more movie posts as I head to Toronto to experience the Toronto International Film Festival.

I think I am just going to start this with a clean slate since I didn't post one of these for July. 

Before I talk about what August will bring for me reading wise I am going to share what I read since my last wrap up post.

Here is what I managed to read since June:

I'm The Girl by Courtney Summers (goodreads)
Heartstopper: Volume 2 by Alice Oseman (goodreads)
Heartstopper: Volume 3 by Alice Oseman (goodreads)
Lore Olympus: Volume 2 by Rachel Smythe (goodreads)
Clementine: Book One by Tillie Walden (goodreads)

I am going to get back on track with my #PopCultureResolution reading. The books for June and July are Nimona by Noelle Stevenson and The Prince and The Dressmaker by Jen Wag. I have read Nimona and will review it shortly. The August pick is V for Vendetta by Alan Moore. The movies are Sing Street, Cabaret, and Dreamgirls. Expect some posts playing catch up in the next little bit.

Here is what I hope to read in August:

Women Talking by Miriam Toews (goodreads)
Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann (goodreads)
Bones and All by Camille DeAnglis (goodreads)

Next up is an update on my two reading challenges:

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
