Aug ‘17 TBR List

This month's book pile is on the lighter side, which doesn't mean we're reading less. Au contraire, it means we're revisiting old favorites like Sarah Dessen (me) and Jessica Darling (me), because the summer calls for nostalgia and sweet, sweet, swoon.

But if you want to check out what the over-achievers (i.e. people reading new books) are devouring, take a tour of our stacks below, then hit us up with your own TBR list in the comments. And yes, that includes re-reads. No shame!
