So the last time I did one of these posts was in August… 2010! Where does the time go exactly? Anyhow, this August is packed with some fabulous new releases – some of which I will literally start as soon as I get them out of the mailbox. If you want a few more comprehensive lists of August releases, check out Tor’s Fiction Affliction posts for Paranormal Young AdultFantasy, Science Fiction, and Urban Fantasy/PNR releases, Tez Says for a list of August releases, and Literary Escapism’s gigantic list of upcoming release dates.

Two Books by Two Rebels

The Near Witch Possess by Gretchen McNeil

The Near Witch  by Victoria Schwab – August 2nd (US)
Possess by Gretchen McNeil – August 23rd (US)
Both of these books are by YA Rebels. I’ve loved their channel since they started up at the beginning of 2010 – especially videos by Gretchen and Victoria. So excited that I will finally be able to get my hands on their books!

Two Books I Won’t be Able to Read

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – August 23rd  (US) August 25th (UK)
Aftermath by Ann Aguirre – August 30th (US)
I’ll be buying these as soon as they come out – but I won’t be reading them for a while! I still haven’t finished the Vampire Academy series, which I want to start before I get to the sequel series. And then there is the Jax series, which I love too much to read (I am saving them for rainy days).

Two New Series by Two Great Rachels

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent – August 23rd (US) September 1st (UK)
Working Stiff by Rachel Caine – August 2nd (US) October 31st (UK)
These Rachels are demi-Gods in the Urban Fantasy world, so it is super exciting to be getting some fresh new series from them! (Although I should probably complete their other books first…)

Two Books I Pre-ordered Months Ago!

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles – August 16th (US)
Rip Tide by Kat Falls – August 1st (US) August 4th (UK)
These books are radically different from each other, but I really really really can’t wait to read them! Rip Tide is the sequel to the fabulous Dark Life, and Chain Reaction is the last Perfect Chemistry novel. I expect wonders from both of them!
