I’m going to be honest; I don’t imagine that I will read very much this month. We’re right in the middle of remodeling our house and it’s probably going to take a month to get everything back in place when they’re finished. The chances of having enough time to read is slim. Plus, all of my things from my living room are blocking my tbr shelf right now. My plan is to read the two books that I currently have access to. So, let’s get to my August 2022 TBR.
The Lighthouse Witches
When single mother Liv is commissioned to paint a mural in a 100-year-old lighthouse on a remote Scottish island, it’s an opportunity to start over with her three daughters–Luna, Sapphire, and Clover. When two of her daughters go missing, she’s frantic. She learns that the cave beneath the lighthouse was once a prison for women accused of witchcraft. The locals warn her about wildlings, supernatural beings who mimic human children, created by witches for revenge. Liv is told wildlings are dangerous and must be killed.
Twenty-two years later, Luna has been searching for her missing sisters and mother. When she receives a call about her youngest sister, Clover, she’s initially ecstatic. Clover is the sister she remembers–except she’s still seven years old, the age she was when she vanished. Luna is worried Clover is a wildling. Luna has few memories of her time on the island, but she’ll have to return to find the truth of what happened to her family. But she doesn’t realize just how much the truth will change her.
It is finally time to read The Lighthouse Witches. It has been on my bedside table for a minute. I’m still craving spooky books, and this sounds like it will be perfect. I’m about a hundred pages in and it’s making me want to travel to Scotland, but obviously not to the place in the book. It’s already getting pretty spooky.
The Lies of Locke Lamora
An orphan’s life is harsh–and often short–in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game–or die trying.
The Lies of Locke Lamora sounds like a really unique fantasy. I want to give it a read to see what all the hype is about. And since it’s one of the two books in my reach then I would say now is the time to give it a try.
That’s my plan for my August 2022 TBR. What are you planning to read this month?
