Hi guys! How are you? This post is kinda late, but that just means that a lot of these books are already out and y’all can all go buy them immediately if you’re so inclined. I know I am.
Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber, August 2nd
Katherine Webbers first book, Wing Jones, is one of my absolute favorites. She’s already become an auto-buy author for me. According to her twitter this one has desert adventures, late night drives, moonlit discoveries and sunlit magical moments. So exciting!
Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas, August 7th
This book wasn’t on my radar, than I read “Catwoman teams up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn” and was like sign me the fuck up. I’m not big on superheroes, but I’m always down for a villainous girl squad.
Finding Yvonne by Brandy Colbert, August 7th
Brandy Colbert’s another auto-buy author for me, thanks to her wonderful contemporary Little & Lion and this one sounds just as wonderful. It’s about a girl who’s trying to figure out her future and dealing with an unexpected pregnancy.
Star-Touched Stories by Roshani Chokshi, August 7th
This is a collection of stories set in the world of the companion novels Star-Touched Queen and Crown of Wishes. I adore the rich and magical world inspired by Indian mythology and folklore that Roshani Chokshi’s created and I’m so excited we get to see more of it.
The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker, Agust 7th
My romance pick of the month! The Simple Wild is about a girl who returns to the Alaska wild to reconnect with her father and falls in love with a proud, obnoxious Alaskan pilot. I love books set in Alaska and hate to love romance, so this should be great.
The Looking Glass by Janet McNally, August 14th
This sounds like a kind of contemporary fairytale about a girl who’s searching for her missing sister with the help of a fairytale book her sister sent her, which they call Girl in Trouble. I’m always going to have high hopes for any book that mixes real life with fairytales, so I’m crossing my fingers for this one.
Giant Days by Non Pratt, August 21st
Confession: I’ve only read the first volume of Giant Days, but I loved it and I’m planning on catching up with the series. And once I have, I’ll definitley be checking out this novelization. I think it’s so fun to see graphic novels getting the novel treatment, and not just the other way around.
Fierce Like a Firestorm by Lana Popović, August 21st
One of my most anticipated sequels of the year, this contemporary fantasy book set in Montenegro is all about magic, sisters and curses. There’s also a f/f main ship in this one.
In Another Time by Caroline Leech, August 28th
I never reach for WWII fiction, but this one caught my eye. It’s a about a girl who spends the war years in the Scottish Highlands as a Women’s Timber Corps lumberjill and since I’ve never read anything quite like that before – I added it to my TBR.
Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames, August 28th
I read and adored Kings of the Wyld in July, so I’m very happy I don’t have to wait very long to get my hands on the sequel. I’m so excited for another wild adventure in the wyld,
Mirage by Somaiya Daud, August 28th
Aside from some long awaited sequels (I’m looking at you, Muse of Nightmares) this book is by far my most anticipated 2018 release. It’s a Moroccan inspired sci-fi/fantasy about a girl who’s forced to become a hated princess’s body-double and it sounds perfect.
Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft edited by Tess Sharpe and Jessica Spotswood, August 28th
I mean, it’s 15 tales of women and witchcraft, you don’t have to be a witch to figure out why I’m excited for this one.
So those are all the August releases I’m excited for! Are any of these on your TBR as well? What other shiny new releases are you excited about? Let’s talk!
