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 Adult, Fantasy, 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 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)
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!
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!
