New Releases for August

I am back from a fun “road trip” vacation with my family. We drove through Virginia and visited Monticello and Montpelier on our way to Gettysburg, PA, then drove to Arlington and Richmond before making our way home. It was a great, memorable trip, but now we need to turn our attention to school. Yes, my kids start back to school next week. This will be my daughter’s last year of elementary school and my son’s first year of high school, so I’ll probably be an emotional wreck. LOL! Thankfully, I’ll have plenty of books to keep me company. I haven’t read any of the August books yet, but I am looking forward to reading A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan and The Man Plan by Tracy Anne Warren.

Which August releases have you read? Of those, which ones do you recommend? Which ones are you most looking forward to reading? Tell us and one lucky commenter will win a random book from my prize stash!


Until September, happy reading!

  6. I'm looking forward to the following books releasing in August:
    The Danger in Tempting an Earl – Sophie Barnes
    Why Lords Lose Their Hearts – Manda Collins
    Rogue with a Brogue – Suzanne Enoch
    Love and Let Spy – Shana Galen (pre-ordered, will arrive 8-5)

    How the Scoundrel Seduces – Sabrina Jeffries (pre-ordered...waiting for delivery in a couple of weeks)

    I'm doing a marathon read of The Bachelor Chronicle books by Elizabeth Boyle. My list of her books has been piling up in my TBR shelves, so decided it was time to bring her stuff to the top. Will need to part way a bit when my copy of Love and Let Spy by Shana Galen arrives. Can't wait to read that book. This is a great series.

  15. I'm so glad to see so many of my fave authors's names on this August list. The surprise name on for me is, Tracy Anne Warren, bec I've come to know her as historical romance writer, and love her books, of course. I must 'throw in the towel' trying to catch up with all these new TBR books, but am not giving up reading though, just much slower than you ladies at TRD.
