End of the Summer (Hopeful) TBR

AH! August is the beginning of the end for summer vacation. At the end of August I start my last semester of classes before student teaching, which means my reading time for the next year (or really the rest of my life) will be limited. So here's a quick list of books that I want to squeeze in before the end of the summer in between finishing my online class and studying for certification tests (big sad/stressed face.)

 

Trying to knock a couple of books off on my Classics Club Women's Lit event TBR with these two. I haven't made a lot of progress with this list this year as last semester was so much busier than I expected, but I want to keep going and carry over whatever I don't get done to next year. George Elliot's essay Silly Novels by Lady Novelists caught my attention when I came across it while writing a paper on the Domestic Novel for a lit class last fall and Elizabeth Bowen is an author I really think I'm going to like.

 

I still haven't gotten to this much beloved sequel, A Court of Mist and Fury, because I forgot pretty much everything about book one. I think this will be a great book to end the summer with (after I find a recap of the first book) as it's a fun series with a kick-butt female and some sexy times. I've heard over-and-over that this is way better than book one. Bone Gap won the Printz award recently and is magical realism. That's really all I need to hear to want to pick it up.

What are you trying to squeeze in before the end of the summer?
