Most Wanted: August 2015

Posted July 28, 2015 by Debby in Uncategorized

August is almost around the corner! Good thing too, because some of these books I’ve been waiting on for sooooo long, it’s about freaking time. Here are the August titles I’m most excited about.

August 4th

How to Say I Love You Out Loud The Heartbreakers

How to Say I Love You Out Loud by Karole Cozzo: This book made me feel sooo many things. I almost cried. Anyway – excellent for its presentation of autism and the importance of familial love.

The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak: So basically I heard that this book is adorable and then I wanted it immediately. #suckerforromance

August 11th

Bright Lights Dark Nights

Bright Lights, Dark Nights by Stephen Emond: I just finished reading this one yesterday, and I thought it was really good! Stunning illustrations, great bantery romance, and some thought-provoking racial themes.

August 18th

Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes Court of Fives

Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan: UMMM IT’S PERCY. Duh.

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott: I’m *tentatively* excited about this – mostly because many other fantasy series starters this year have let me down so tremendously. Please be good?

August 25th

Mechanica Lair of Dreams Bounce

Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell: STEAMPUNK. CINDERELLA. COVER. Hi, yes, want. (Actually this is up next and I am excite.)

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray: The Diviners was absolutely stunning, so obviously I’m excited about the sequel. I’m a BIT daunted by the fact that it’s more than 700 pages o_o but okay.

Bounce by Noelle August: IT’S GRAY’S BOOK. I’ve had this pre-ordered for months now. I cannot wait. I mean, I didn’t love Rebound like I loved Boomerang, but I’m still really excited about this series.

Which August releases are you most excited about?

  1. I’m REALLY excited about Court of Fives and Mechanica as well. A fantasy and a fairytale retelling? NEED. I’m actually hoping to get to CoF this month. The Heartbreakers wasn’t even on my radar, and I just looked it up, and it sounds so CUTE. (And I didn’t know this author also wrote My Life With The Walter Boys, which is a book I’ve been meaning to read for awhile now). I hope you enjoy Mechanica! I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on it since I’ve seen many mixed reviews so far.

    I’m also really excited for Court of Fives, but it comes out just a week before Queen of Shadows here in the UK so I think it’s going to have to wait until after I’ve finished reading that. I was also really looking forward to getting my hands on Mechanica, but I’ve seen quite a few negative reviews this past week, which have kind of put me off … looking forward to see what you make of it.

  3. I’m also dying for Bounce! I have really enjoyed the series so far! It’s a great NA series without over-the-top dramatics, which is nice because so many NA books are fraught with that shizzle.

    I’m pretty excited to read Heart-Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves. She wrote On the Island, which is one of my favorite romances ever!

    • Right, the whole trend in NA that every character has a traumatic back story? Ugh. I’m glad the Boomerang series doesn’t really do that – though Rebound was a bit too melodramatic for me at times. But GRAY. I’m so excited to just have GRAY in my life.
