July has been a bit hit and miss with books and, despite being on holiday for a huge chunk of it, I just didn't manage to get through as many books as I might have liked. Despite that, I did manage to get through my minimum four and so I'm free and clear to move onto my next four for August, and I'm pretty positive about it as they're a really good bunch.
1: Disclaimer - Renee Knight
I've been meaning to buy this for ages - it sounds creepy as hell, and I absolutely can't wait to get stuck in to reading this. This is a book about a woman who finds a book on her bedside tables, only to start reading it and realise that it's about her own life, and about a secret that she thought nobody else knew. All in all, this sounds like a book that's going to keep me up at night one way or another. Definitely one that I can't wait to get stuck into.
2: The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum
I absolutely love The Bourne Identity and so when I saw the book I was desperate to give it a go. I have a weird love for reading the books that films are based on, and I greatly look forward to taking the moral, "actually I read the book", high ground. I'm joking, of course, but I am looking forward to seeing how the book compares to one of my favourite films.
3: The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August - Claire North
Straight up; I bought this purely because one of the cover review was the author of "The Girl With All The Gifts" - one of my favourite books of all time. This is a book, however, about a man who always lives the same life over and over when he dies - until one day everything is change. This sounds very Time Traveller's Wife-esque, and I'm excited to give it a go and see how it works out.
4: Purge - Sofi Oksanen
I can't work out anything from this blurb except the fact that it's to do with Soviet Oppression and The European War. Nevertheless, I'm willing to give it a solid college try and update you when (or if?) I manage to get through it.
What are you reading this month?
