To Be Read: August 2022

I won’t lie July has not been a fun reading month, I’m really hoping August will be different. The struggle to get through books this month has been big. So to change that in my August to be read I’ve decided to read two books I’m really excited about. 

The Titan’s Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3) by Rick Riordan

My reading of the Percy Jackson series will be continuing next month. I took some time away from the series due to ARCs, which I won’t lie have been kicking my butt lately. But now it’s time for me to move on to the third book. Which I think is a lot of people’s favourite? 

Synopsis: It’s not every day you find yourself in combat with a half-lion, half-human.

But when you’re the son of a Greek god, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster. 

Oh, and guess what? The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive…

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

This has been on my to be read for so long it’s ridiculous. Taylor Jenkins Reid is slowly becoming one of my favourite authors so I need ot read this soon. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has been recommended to me more times than I can count, it’s obviously that good. 

The real question is whether it will top Daisy Jones & The Six as my favourite? That will be tough. 

Synopsis: Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

Let me know what’s on your August to be read!
