Books coming out August/2017 I’m dying to read

Hello readers!

This August is a really good month for book publishing! Below are some of the books coming out throughout the month and that I really want to read. What are you guys excitedly waiting for in August?

29749085I just know I have to read Wonder Woman: Warbringer. The beautiful the cover, the amazing the story, it’s just so much goodness into one book. I must confess I am not familiarized yet with Leigh Bardugo’s work, I have Six of Crows staring at me on my TBR pile but I have other books to read before that one. I normally don’t put many books by the same author on my TBR but… just look at this!

Goodreads synopsis excerpt: She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

33368917I really enjoyed The Other Boleyn Girl by this author, and I am dying to get my hands on other books by her! Tudor historical fiction is such a guilty pleasure read for me. I’ve never read anything on Jane Grey, so I’m pretty excited to read The Last Tudor!

Goodreads synopsis excerpt: The latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory features one of the most famous girls in history, Lady Jane Grey, and her two sisters, each of whom dared to defy her queen.

33590214I heard about Young Jane Young through this review by Emily May, who I follow on Goodreads. The moment I saw who wrote this book, I knew it was going to make its way to my TBR. I really loved Elsewhere and the story of Young Jane Young just sounds so awesome: it’s basically a book for whoever gets angry when a woman is bashed for dating a married man, and he escapes with barely any bad press.

Goodreads synopsis excerpt: Young Jane Young‘s heroine is Aviva Grossman, an ambitious Congressional intern in Florida who makes the life-changing mistake of having an affair with her boss‑‑who is beloved, admired, successful, and very married‑‑and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the Congressman doesn’t take the fall, but Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins. She becomes a late‑night talk show punchline; she is slut‑shamed, labeled as fat and ugly, and considered a blight on politics in general.

See What I have done Sarah Schmidt

I have actually already read See What I Have Done, which I did not expect to do by the time this post came up, which is why I am keeping it on this list! It’s a crime fiction based on the true story of Andrew and Abby Borden’s murder. My review comes up in 2 weeks, but I will say this: it’s impossible to put this one down.

Goodreads synopsis excerpt: On the morning of August 4, 1892, Lizzie Borden calls out to her maid: Someone’s killed Father. The brutal ax-murder of Andrew and Abby Borden in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts, leaves little evidence and many unanswered questions.

The Other Girl Erica SpindlerI am so hyped to read The Other Girl! I’ve received it from Netgalley and lately I’ve been on the mood for a good thriller (I blame The Breakdown for this) and I’ve read only good things about this one so far! Can’t wait to read this!

Goodreads synopsis excerpt: Officer Miranda Rader of the Hammond PD in Louisiana is known for her honesty, integrity, and steady hand in a crisis—but that wasn’t always so. Miranda comes from Jasper, just south of Hammond, a place about the size of a good spit on a hot day, and her side of the tracks was the wrong one. She’s worked hard to leave the girl she used to be behind and earn respect in her position as an officer. However, when Miranda and her partner are called to investigate the murder of one of the town’s most beloved college professors, they’re unprepared for the gruesomeness of the scene.

The Word is Murder Anthony Horowitz Have you guys read Magpie Murders? Well, if you are an Agatha Christie fan, you should. I enjoyed the book, but honestly I’m more hyped for this one. I enjoyed Horowitz’ writing style very much on Magpie Murders, and I look so much forward to reading this whodunit! As said lately, I seem to be on a mood for thrillers. So I was veryyy excited to get approved for it on Netgalley!

Goodreads synopsis excerpt:  A wealthy woman strangled six hours after she’s arranged her own funeral.
A very private detective uncovering secrets but hiding his own.
A reluctant author drawn into a story he can’t control.
What do they have in common?
Unexpected death, an unsolved mystery and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz’s page-turning new thriller.

  1. Wonder Woman!

    If the title would’ve been something else, I would’ve still bought it because.. Leigh Bardugo.
    If the author would’ve been someone else, I would’ve still bought it because.. Wonder Woman.
    Add that awesome cover and.. well, auto-buy, haha.

    [Stupid book ban, though.]

    • Right?? I am so hyped for it. I just saw that you live in Belgium. I can send the WW book to you once I finish reading! I just don’t know when that will be. Possibly not till September.

          • Don’t worry about it! It’s not an ARC – I will buy the book when it comes out. I don’t like leaving books unread on my bookshelf, and my friends who would like the book wouldn’t read it in English anyways. You can keep it. Don’t worry about sending anything, I quite like giving books to people who would enjoy them. Since most bloggers live too far from me, I can’t do that often. But Belgium is quite close (I live in Germany)

          • I give a lot of books away, don’t feel pressured at all! It’s just – I don’t re-read stuff very often, it takes me literal years to do so… I also move around a lot so I constantly need to re-buy books if I want to read again. Last month my bf and I separated around 20 books to give away and my mom almost had a heart attack! Hahaha

          • Oh wow, well, in that case.. If you ever have more books to “throw out”.. Haha!
            Totally get your point though; but I’d never be able to say goodbye to my books. I love watching them; staring at them and showing them off way too much. Not to mention I’m my mom’s personal library and she rereads a lot of my books, so yeah. :p
