It’s September! In my book it’s the start of fall. I have already decorated my house and baked a pumpkin pie. I refuse to deny myself happiness in 2020. Anyhow, here are the books that I am planning to read this month. Check out my September TBR.
Their Eyes Were Watching God
Hurston’s beloved classic–one of the most important American novels of the 20th century–follows the fortunes of Janie Crawford, a woman who was married three times and had been tried for the murder of one of her husbands in the black town of Eaton, Florida.
I’m reading this for my Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge prompt. I am supposed to read a classic that I didn’t read in school. I absolutely love it so far.
The Queen of Nothing
He will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne
Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.
Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her twin sister, Taryn, whose life is in peril.
Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.
And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity . . .
I’ve got to stop procrastinating. This was on my yearly tbr, so I have to finish it before the year is up. It’s time to finish it.
Winter of the World
Picking up where Fall of Giants, the first novel in the extraordinary Century Trilogy, left off, Winter of the World follows its five interrelated families–American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh–through a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the great dramas of World War II, and into the beginning of the long Cold War.
Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until daring to commit a deed of great courage and heartbreak . . . . American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific . . . . English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism . . . . Daisy Peshkov, a driven social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set until war transforms her life, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war but also the war to come.
I’ve already started this. I’m hoping to finish it this month. I fell in love with this series.
That wraps up my September TBR. What are you reading this month? I hope you guys stay happy and healthy.
