My goal for August is to read some short books to help lower my physical TBR a little bit. I chose 26 books with 200 or fewer pages (aside from one cheat) that begin with each letter of the alphabet. The one cheat on this list is the book for the letter X. I didn’t have a book that started with that letter so I chose a book that has two Xs in the title, it is also over my page count restriction by 4 pages.
I may not finish all of the books on this TBR before the end of August, so it may be an August and September TBR. There are so many books here, I’m not going to share the descriptions from Goodreads like I usually do, but I’ll share the covers and links to Goodreads if you want to read more about them.

I think it’s a pretty good mix of genres. It is also a good mix in terms of how long they’ve been on my TBR. Some from just a few months ago and some from several years ago. I’m hoping to get through all of these this month, but I’m trying not to pressure myself in to that too much.
