  1. Ooh, I hope you like A Darker Shade of Magic. I finally read it after seeing it recommending by what seemed like a billion bloggers and thought it was really good. Schwab’s characters are great.

  2. I enjoyed My Brilliant Friend but loved the second and third in Ferrante’s series even more. I’ve not yet read the fourth. They have a fierce quality of writing about them, and the setting in Naples in the 1950s was fascinating to me.

    A Darker Shade of Magic is on my TBR and I have a copy at home.

    My August reading plans include finishing Lab Girl by Hope Jahren and Open City by Teju Cole. Those are the last two of my #10BooksofSummer, from Cathy’s #20BooksofSummer challenge at her blog 746Books.

    1. I’m behind on my reading challenges and have fallen of the wagon for the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge. So I’m trying to get three or four challenge books read this month and read My Brilliant Friend which isn’t a part of any reading challenge. Fingers crossed.

  3. A Darker Shade of Magic is brilliant! I loved the series so much and can’t wait to read the last book! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for visiting my WWW earlier. 🙂

      1. Aw. You won’t be noticing you’re almost done once you start to enjoy it! And it’s really hard to put down. 🙂

  4. A Darker Shade of Magic is one on my radar, too. BUT I have sooo many other great books on my TBR – I must get some of them read first! I like your planned reading for the month – hope you enjoy them all:)

    1. Thank you! I’m sliding in A Darker Shade of Magic since I waited so long on the library waiting list. It’s always a juggling act trying to figure out what to read and when to read it. What are your reading plans for the next month?

      1. I’m reading a lot of children’s books with my grandson:) For my own joy – I’m currently in the middle of Spiderlight by Adrian Tchaikovsky and loving it – and after that, I’ve got Autonomy by Jude Houghton, followed by Jen Williams’ The Silver Tide, as I’ve loved her series so far and want more. Then it’s Spellbreaker by Blake Charlton – after that… I’m sure something else will jostle its way to the fore. I don’t like planning too far in advance:))

  5. Nice list! My Brilliant Friend is in my TBR as well. Right now I’m reading the backlist title “The Language of Flowers” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, which I’m really enjoying.
