Friday Fives - August TBR

I'm taking a bit of a break from my usual Friday Linkups to try something a little different.  Michelle over at Because Reading is Better Than Real Life   used to do a Five on Fridays that I always enjoyed and I've seen a few other variations on the theme.  As well I'm in a list making kind of mood so I thought I'd give start making random five lists.  Sometimes they'll be bookish other weeks not so much. I'm also going to start linking up with Kathryn over at Book Date for her Connect Five.  Since it's the first Friday of August I'm taking a lot at what I hope to read this month.  This August is a little different because my possibilities are a little more limited since we are in our temporary home but that just mans there's a greater chance of me actually reading all of these!

1.  Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katrina Bivald - This has been on my TBR for ages and I finally bought it with a gift card sent by a very kind friend.  I'm really looking forward to picking this one up.

2.  The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman - I read the first one a few months ago and it was pure nonsense but in the most fun way so I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of trouble Mrs. Pollifax gets into next.

3.  Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner - I've heard good things about this one and when I saw it in a bag of books my mother sent it went straight to the top of the list!

4.  Dressed Up 4 Murder by J.C. Eaton - This is one of my favorite cozy mystery series and I actually have an eARC copy of this one.  However, I've been reading more print books lately so I went on and purchased this one and can't wait to read it!

5.  The Summoning by Heather Graham - I brought my copy of this one with me and I am reading it this month!  It will happen.

What are you hoping to read in August?


  1. You can't go wrong with Mrs. Pollifax, Katherine. Ha! Seems like this one is set in Istanbul or something like that. It's been a while. LOL

  2. Oh I love that your Mom sent you some books and hope you enjoy K Bivald book.

  3. I've read Susie Steiner, I like her books!

  4. Next year if Barb does Puppy Love Challenge, I need to catch up with the Eaton series! I have three unread and a few to buy!

  5. I love cozy covers with animals on them. 😊
