Hey Everyone, Slick Dungeon here. I just wanted to share with you my September 2020 TBR list as it currently stands. Note that some of this could change as I do tend to be a slower reader and some books may get pushed back a little. There may also be books added if I see one that peaks my interest in ReedsyDiscovery. For personal reasons I am trying to keep this list a little short but I do end up picking up more books than I expect each month so more could be added. This month I will be continuing a couple of series I started earlier this year and catch up with what I missed last month. I will also be adding some new titles. If you have a TBR list, let me know what’s on it in the comments.
- Roa Seeks by Electra Nanou
This is a little bit like putting Write a To Do List on your To Do list. I read this book and posted my review yesterday but since that was the first day of September, it counts! This was a charming little fantasy book that I quite enjoyed. Read my review of it here.
2. The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
I had hoped to finish this book last month but let’s be honest, fantasy books are long. That’s one of the things I love about them but if you are not the fastest reader, it’s a struggle. If I don’t finish any other books this month, this will be the one I do finish. I have already read more than one hundred pages so far and let’s just say, this is so freaking good! I can’t wait to finish it and share my thoughts with all of you.
3. The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
This is the second book in the Broken Earth trilogy. I know that this series has a lot of fans. I read the first book last month and I honestly struggled with it a bit but I was interested enough to want to know what happens next. I really did not enjoy the second person point of view in the first book but I don’t know if the second book is written in the same style. Even if it is, there could be something great in this series that just didn’t click with me so I am going to give it a fair shake (see what I did there? If you read the book you get it) and continue the series. This is on the condition that I can get a hold of a library copy so this could move to October. If you want to read my review of the first book in the series you can read it here.
4. When Colour Became Grey by A. C. Lorenzen
This is an Urban Fantasy book that I am looking forward to digging in. It’s about a woman who has an untimely death and is sentenced to hunt down demons over and over. I like the idea and am very interested to see where this will go.
5. Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff
If you have seen my raving reviews of the HBO show of the same name, you will know that I very much want to read Loveraft Country as soon as possible. This is another one where I am dependent on the library having an available copy, so we will see considering how popular this is at the moment. If you want to read my spoiler free review of the first episode of the show you can read that here.
6. The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America by David Hadju
If any of these books on this list get pushed back, this will probably be the first one that gets pushed. I really do want to read this book and I am fascinated with the history of comic books but then again this is an older book and I haven’t gotten to it yet so one more month won’t hurt it. If I don’t get to this in September this will get moved higher on October’s list.
Let me know what you think of my list and if you have a TBR I should check out, let me know in the comments!

I have about 100 pages left in Deadhouse Gates, which is book #2 in the Malazan Book of the Fallen series, of which is my entire TBR list now. There’s 10 books by Steven Erikson in the gambit of the novels and others by his friend Ian Cameron Esslemont. You’re right! Fantasy novels are long! The first two of the 10 main novels are the shortest, and they just keep getting longer as they progress. Look them up if you haven’t heard of them. I’m sticking to the core 10 books. IDK, I might take a break somewhere in there to read a classic I’ve collected, maybe reread The Grapes of Wrath. Also in my program is to explore blogs–anything to keep my mind moving.
