Anticipated August 2020 Releases!

Well, we're finally reaching the end of the month! it's been a hell of a month for me and I think I'm sort of glad it's over--and a big part of that is probably because of the huge amount of awesome books coming out, if we're being honest. :) I've already read a few of these (I highly recommend The Vanished Queen, The Exiles, Olive the Lionheart, and Universe of Two in particular!), but there are far more that I haven't and am so excited to read sometime. I've been holding onto an ARC of Where Dreams Descend for months, so I think it's finally time to get it read for a review! Anyway, I hope you've all had a great month and that you get a chance to dive into some of these new releases. :)

What books are you most looking forward to? Have you read any of these already!? Let me know!

What are your anticipated August releases?


  1. I've preordered a copy of The Lions of Fifth Avenue, and I won a copy of Universe of Two, so those are definitely two I'm looking forward to the most!

    1. Awesome! I'm reading Universe of Two right now and enjoying it so much! I can't wait for The Lions of Fifth Avenue.

  2. I think one reason August is so crazy is that a lot of Spring books were pushed to August, and now they have to compete with all the other August books. This might be my busiest month for review books ever! I may have to quit my job so I can keep up, lol😁

    1. Ah I know, so many of these books were supposed to come out earlier this year--it just makes it crazier now, haha! I feel you, it's going to be overwhelming (well, it already is!). Good luck! ;)
