Upcoming Releases - August 2013

So I really wanted to post this earlier today, but then it turned into one of those days.  Why do we even have Mondays anyway?

Upcoming August Releases

There are so many awesome books coming out in August.  I cannot wait to read them.  Here are some of the ones I'm most excited about.

  • The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
    • Hector!
    • This is the final book of the Fire and Thorns trilogy, and I am practically biting my nails to find out what happens next!
  • Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
    • A book based on a musical?  Set in Scotland?  With an awesome cover?  Yes, please!
  • The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore
    • I love this series (although I still need to read the previous book), and I'm hoping that this installment in the Lorien Legacies is as exciting as the first two.
  • Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
    • Honestly, I have yet to read Throne of Glass, but I did get it at BEA, and I do intend to read it soon.  There is just so much buzz around this book, and bloggers (whose opinions I trust) seem to love it.
  • The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
    • This middle-grade ghost/detective story just sounds like so much fun.
  • The Lost Kingdom by Matthew J. Kirby
    • I do not read enough steampunk, and this book seems like the perfect answer.  I got the ARC at BEA so I'm really looking forward to it.
  • The Returned by Jason Mott
    • I want to read this because it has an interesting concept, and they're making it into a TV series.
  • Longing For Home by Sarah M. Eden
    • I don't know much about this book, but I do know that I enjoyed the last book I read by Eden.  So if this one is as good as that one, then I won't be disappointed.
  • The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb
    • I'm one of those "strange" people who enjoys reading non-fiction (I used to read textbooks for fun), and I especially love reading about WWII.  This book is actually narrative non-fiction, so it's written like a novel.
  • The Apollo Academy by Kimberly P. Chase
    • I actually stumbled upon this book while looking for a different one, and I thought it sounded really cool.  It's also the first "new adult" book I've seen that interests me.
Are you looking forward to any of these?  Are there any other books coming out soon that you'd recommend?  And if you've already read one or more of these, I'd love to hear what you thought about them.


  1. Definitely read Throne of Glass! I didn't think I'd like it, but I just got sucked in.


    1. I can't wait to read it. I just have so many books to get through first. So much reading!
