August Book BUZZ!
It’s hard to believe it right now, in the midst of the dog days of summer, but school will soon be starting. We have 3 more weeks until that bell rings! My kids are busy finishing (or is it starting?) the books on their summer reading list. I hope that you checked some great books off your summer reading list too! Here’s some suggestions for you, just in case you’d like to squeeze in a few more great reads before the end of summer.
There was a bit of confusion about the release date, but I’ve been assured the book is now on sale! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the website where these three authors post their short stories (here), you’ll get a taste of it here. What makes it even more interesting is the handwritten commentary in the margins from each of them – a peek into their creative processes.
The second installment in this series, and it’s not your normal ghost story. The combination of gore & romance hooked me. Since the first book ended with Anna disappearing through a door to Hell in the basement, I’m wondering where this installment will take us. Just as long as Cas is looking for her – and I hope he finds her!
Maas originally self-published this novel, and it was so well received that it was picked up by Bloomsbury! Charming fantasy about a deadly female assasin forced to compete with other assasins and criminals for a chance at freedom. A handsome prince to flirt with, a handsome captain of the guards to spar with – murder, romance, poison and combat with swords: what more could a girl ask for?
Ah, this one sounds really good – a great gothic tale of witches, horror and romance. Blood Magic, the previous book, is set in the same world but contains different main characters. This book features Mab Prowd, a witch who is talented with blood magic, and a young man named Will with demons of his own. Bring on the paranormal romance!! And the demented rose bushes. Seriously, read the teaser.
You know we don’t miss anything written by this author, but this book has such an interesting premise that we have been anxiously awaiting it since we heard it was coming out. Could this be any cooler – “A” wakes up every morning in a different body, living their life for a day. But when he falls for a girl, can he ever make it work? Oh, I’m sure we will find out. Can’t WAIT to read this one!
This is the second short story book in the Buzz this month, but take a look at the names on the list here: Richelle Mead, Lisa McMann, Michael Grant, Meg Cabot, Laini Taylor, Malinda Lo, Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Saundra Mitchell, Matt de la Pena, Heather Brewer, Diana Peterfreund, Simone Elkeles, and Carrie Ryan. Some of our favorite authors!
