Expected August 2019 Reads:

In August, I expect to read:

1. Shame Off You by Denise Pass. - Currently reading!

2. With This Pledge by Tamera Alexander. - I read this one when it first came out and was delighted when the local book club I attend picked it as our August selection. We'll also be chatting with the author which is always exciting!

3. Play to Their Strengths by Analyn and Brandon Miller. - Currently reading (and loving) this book based on strengths-based parenting!

4. Woe Is I by Patricia T O'Connor - Yeah, still working on this one....

5. Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson. - I have both of Abigail Wilson's books sitting on my TBR stack, but I think I'll start with her newest release.

6. Love Finds You in Bethlehem, New Hampshire by Lauralee Bliss. - I picked this one up from my library's used book store and the author is new to me, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try!

7. Confident Moms, Confident Daughters by Maria Furlough. - This is an area I struggle with so when the opportunity to review it arose, I thought I'd give it a try!

8. Where Dandelions Bloom by Tara Johnson. - Reading this as part of an online book club and looking forward to it!

Wow! That's eight books I'm anticipating in August, definitely more than my normal. But I'll give it a try and be back in early September to let you know how it went.

 What will you read this month?


  1. Oh my word I have no idea what I plan on reading this August -- I'm currently in the YA mood and have found some good random reads. I just finished In 27 Days which was basically one of the best yet!

    1. I haven't read any YA in a few months, but I have some on my TBR shelf, so maybe I need to give those a look next month. Enjoy your reading!
