Revisiting My Summer TBR

Here is my original post about my potential summer TBR. I actually did a pretty good job this time, which surprised me considering I have been struggling with depression lately and I usually only reread things when things get bad. Hopefully my Fall TBR, which has been posted and can be found here, will be just as successful as this one was.

Cover for The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Read: Yes!

3 stars out of 5
3 stars – I liked it

I didn’t realize that this book included stories about other creatures. I thought all of the stories were about Mowgli before I read this.

Cover for Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas

Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas

Read: Yes!!

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

This was another enjoyable Kleypas book. I find that her books are hit and miss for me but this one I enjoyed.

Cover for The Ravenmaster: My Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London by Christopher Skaife

The Ravenmaster: My Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London by Christopher Skaife

Read: Yes!

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

As someone who is not British, this book was fascinating. The position of Ravenmaster is very interesting and I really loved learning about its importance in history. Also I liked that Skaife has does everything he can to make the raven’s lives better but still keep them wild.

Cover for Lover Unveiled by JR Ward

Lover Unveiled (Black Dagger Brotherhood #19) by J.R. Ward

Read: Yes!

3 stars out of 5

Another enjoyable book for the series, even if the beginning was a bit slow.

Covers for Maus I A Survivors Tale My Father Bleeds History and Maus II A And Here My Troubles Begin by Art Spiegelman

Maus: A Survivor’s Tale by Art Spiegelman

Read: Yes!

5 out of 5 stars
5 stars – I loved it!

This was a heartbreaking and emotional story of Art’s father. It was very impactful and does a great job at explaining how the holocaust effected the next generation.

Cover for Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019 by Various

Four Hundred Souls edited by Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain

Read: Yes!

5 out of 5 stars
5 stars – I loved it!

This was a great history of African Americans. I really enjoyed the audiobook because it was narrated by the authors themselves and it was great hearing their different perspectives.

Heard to Serve by Laura Kaye

Reread: No

I forgot this was on my TBR to reread this season. Hopefully I will get to it before the end of the year because I have reread almost all of her other books this year.

Olivier by Brenda Rothert

Read: No

This was another book that I forgot about. Hopefully I do get to it soon though.

Cover for Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Read: No

My plan was to reread this book but I haven’t felt in the mood for YA books lately. I never finished this series and I really wanted to read it this year but we will see if I actually pick it up.

Cover for Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Read: No

Like Inkheart, I haven’t read this one because its a YA and I have to be in the mood for that. I do hope to pick it up soon though.

I read 6 out of the 10 which I consider a win. I am going to strive to read all the books on my fall TBR this time. I really want to see at least one completed TBR this year.
