Five Books on my TBR – August 2019

Happy Saturday everyone,

My TBR currently stands at a fairly intimidating 152 books. Many of them have been there a long time, but here are some of my most recent and most eagerly anticipated additions!

The Passengers by John Marrs

I have heard an unbelievable amount of great things about this book. It sounds like a thrilling and unpredictable read, so I really must try and pick it up soon!

Beautiful Liars by Isabel Ashdown

I added this one to my TBR after reading the synopsis and being totally intrigued by it. A book about a mysterious cold case – sounds perfect for me!

Someone We Know by Shari Lapena

Shari Lapena is one of my auto-buy authors, and I received this one for my birthday. Her previous books were gripping, and I expect Someone We Know to be no different.

The Binding by Bridget Collins

I am very much into historical fiction at the moment, and this one has been compared to some of my favourite reads. Who could not be attracted by that cover?

The Closer I Get by Paul Burston

This sounds like the kind of book that really makes you stop and think. I have seen several glowing reviews from other bloggers, so I did not hesitate to add it to my reading list!


Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I read Shari Lapena’s ‘A Stranger in the House’ and thought it was pretty good!

    I had mixed feelings on ‘The Binding’ though. I felt like the romance was kinda forced and lacked plausibility. I did really love the concept, however.

    Have a great day!

    1. Shari Lapena is one of my favourite authors, her books are always interesting and tense.
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on The Binding! I have seen mixed opinions on it, but I love the sound of the concept.


  2. Two of these books are also on my TBR list! I recently bought The Passengers and am so excited to read it after all the hype. Hope you enjoy these books and that August is turning out to be a great reading month for you, Stephen 🙂
