August 2011: Books I Can't Wait to Read!

So the last time I did a Books I Can't Wait to Read post was in August... 2010! Where does the time go exactly? Anyhow, this August is packed with some fabulous new releases - some of which I will literally start as soon as I get them out of the mailbox. If you want a few more comprehensive lists of August releases, check out Tor's Fiction Affliction posts for Paranormal Young AdultFantasy, Science Fiction, and Urban Fantasy/PNR releases, Tez Says for a list of August releases, and Literary Escapism's gigantic list of upcoming release dates.

Two Books by Two Rebels

The Near Witch  by Victoria Schwab - August 2nd (US)
Possess by Gretchen McNeil - August 23rd (US)
Both of these books are by YA Rebels. I've loved their channel since they started up at the beginning of 2010 - especially videos by Gretchen and Victoria. So excited that I will finally be able to get my hands on their books!

Two Books I Won't be Able to Read

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead - August 23rd  (US) August 25th (UK)
Aftermath by Ann Aguirre - August 30th (US)
I'll be buying these as soon as they come out - but I won't be reading them for a while! I still haven't finished the Vampire Academy series, which I want to start before I get to the sequel series. And then there is the Jax series, which I love too much to read (I am saving them for rainy days).

Two New Series by Two Great Rachels

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent - August 23rd (US) September 1st (UK)
Working Stiff by Rachel Caine - August 2nd (US) October 31st (UK)
These Rachels are demi-Gods in the Urban Fantasy world, so it is super exciting to be getting some fresh new series from them! (Although I should probably complete their other books first...)

Two Books I Pre-ordered Months Ago!

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles - August 16th (US)
Rip Tide by Kat Falls - August 1st (US) August 4th (UK)
These books are radically different from each other, but I really really really can't wait to read them! Rip Tide is the sequel to the fabulous Dark Life, and Chain Reaction is the last Perfect Chemistry novel. I expect wonders from both of them!


  1. Working Stiff - hmmm... I have to say I think that is a dodgy title. I hope the book turns out to be great.

    Chain Reaction! Bring it on. Can. Not. Wait.

  2. I am excited for these books as well. Especially Chain Reaction!

  3. Your blog theme changed! When did that happen, I am sure I was just here! 0.o

    I didn't know Rachel Caine was coming out with a new adult UF series. I was just thinking of her yesterday when I was in the store and realized I had not yet picked up Total Eclipse! Just checked out the summary on goodreads for that one and I don't know if it's my cup of tea. I wasn't a huge fan of her YA series once I got about 4 books in, but Weather Wardens are still in my fave UF series!
