1/ Bird Box – Josh Malerman
2/ Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie
3/ Everybody See The Ants – A.S. King
4/ Spellbook of the Lost and Found – Moïra Fowley-Doyle

7/ Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë
8/ Jane Steele – Lyndsay Faye

I am excited for all of these books and honestly want to pick all of them up now! Alas, a lot can change in three months, and a lot of books can be bought/discovered in that time aswell… but I do want to get to most of these and *should* appear in my monthly priority reads. If not, I probably will read them in the Winter.

THANKS FOR READING!
