August Releases I’m Excited For

august releases I'm excited for 2

August 4th


  • Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsiad – about two best friends who as freshman made a list of high school cliches they swore never to do, but as seniors are about to start breaking all of their rules. I haven’t actually heard that much praise for this book but I’m still really keen to own it. It sounds like the two best friends are going to get up to a lot of mischievous fun and *hopefully* fall in love!
  • What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi – about a teenage guy who’s girlfriend, who has cancer, dies in child birth and is now raising they’re daughter alone while trying to go to school and grieve his girlfriend. This sounds incredible, I have never heard of a teen single dad novel in YA before so I’m excited to see how it goes.
  • Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Steohanie Tromly – about a girl who moves into a small town and becomes best friends with the oddly brilliant Digby. Digby sounds like an amazing character, and I am so keen to read about him!

August 6th


  • House of Windows by Alexia Casale – about a 15 year old genius who gets into Cambridge University and is having a hard time fitting in. I think this is going to be so amazing! I love books about incredible smart people it’s so interesting!

August 11th


  • Reawaken by Colleen Houck – a girl has to help a mummified Egyptian prince who comes alive at the Metropolitan Museum of Art find his brother to help save man kind. DA DA DUM!!! I’ve never read The Tiger Saga (Houck’s debut series) but I know people who have and they loved it so I’m confident in Houck storytelling ability. Plus it kinda reminds me of Night at the Museum – which I love!

August 18th


  • The Boy Most Likely to (My Life Next Door #2) by Huntley Fitzpatrick – Tim and Alice who are total opposite fall dangerously for each other. So I’ve never read My Life Next Door but I always plan to and The Boy Most Likely To sound so good so I guess I’ll be reading it soon.
  • Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by Various Authors (as in like 13 awesome as fuck authors) –  a collection of short horror stories and psychological thrillers! I AM SO DOWN FOR THIS! Stories by Marie Lu and Leigh Bardugo – yes please!

August 25th


  • Heart-shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis-Graves – Kate owns a food pantry but money’s tight, at least until a mysterious hacktivest, Ian, helps her out but Ian has problems of his own and is ware of getting Kate involved. This sounds so lovely!!! I can’t wait to read it! Plus I want to own that beautiful cover.
  • Another Day (Every Day #2) by David Levithan – the sequel/companion novel to Every Day where we get to see the story from Rhiannon’s perspective. I just Every Day last week and I LOVED IT SO SO SO MUCH!!

August 27th


  • The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness – what if your best friend was the chosen one and all you wanted to do was graduate and build up enough courage to ask out your crush. I am so excited for this!!!!!!!!!! I have never read a Patrick Ness novel even though everyone always sings him praise. I love the idea of getting to experience a superhero vibish novel from the perspective of the average best friend. How many time while reading a book from the perspective of the ‘chosen one’ have we been like oh my god their best friend is so awesome! He/she helps make this novel as awesome as it is. AND NOW WE GET TO READ A BOOK FORM THAT ANGLE.

      1. HAHA! SO SORRY! 😉
        If I didn’t already have so many on preorder, then I probably would have added a few more. I was trying not to preorder so many each month of releases or I would be seriously out of money, haha!
