Hi everyone! This is my second Book Buzz post (see July’s post here). I am very excited about several August releases and I wanted to share those with you all.

The Islands at the End of the World by Austin Aslan

islands

Expected release date: August 5 2014

This book looks really interesting. It looks to be a bit of a mix between a straight-up survival story and a dystopia. Whatever it turns out to be, it certainly has my attention!

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

girl

Expected release date: August 5 2014 

This book has been described as “Dexter” meets “The Grudge” – you can bet that caught my attention! It’s a debut novel and it looks incredibly intriguing – it definitely looks like it can deliver the right amount of chills!

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee

gates

Expected release date: August 5 2014 

A fantasy novel with labyrinths and time travel? This couldn’t be any more up my street! I am really looking forward to this.

Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson

servants

Expected release date: August 5 2014 

This book looks like it is going to be a thrilling read. It has all the makings of being a really creepy mystery. The only downside – a possible love triangle. Despite this, I am willing to give this book a chance as otherwise it looks completely enthralling (and the protagonist is biracial – yay for diversity!)

Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine

metal

Expected release date: August 5 2014 

I love scary novels and this one includes ghosts and slaughterhouses – plus I have heard it is also a (loose) retelling of Phantom of the Opera? I’m totally there!

Some Boys by Patty Blount

some

Expected release date: August 5 2014 

This contemporary YA book looks like it has the potential to kick me in the feels. I will definitely be seeking this out!

The Merciless by Danielle Vega

merciless

Expected release date: August 7 2014 

I had been looking forward to this book but I have read a few less than stellar reviews – still I am intrigued enough by the premise and I love me some horror so I will still be reading this.

Forget Me by K.A. Harrington

forget

Expected release date: August 7 2014

The premise of this looks interesting – I am certainly interested in reading this but I probably will not rush out and buy it right away.

Buzzworthy Scale:

buzz 1


The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

unfinished

Expected release date: August 12 2014

I only came across this book recently and it gets pretty positive reviews. I think I will check it out at some point, but again no rush!

Buzzworthy Scale:

buzz 1


Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

fiendish

Expected release date: August 14 2014

I love, love, love Brenna Yovanoff and cannot wait for this book to come out. I am already tingly with anticipation!

Buzzworthy Scale:

buzz 5


Feral by Holly Schindler

feral

Expected release date: August 26 2014

This looks really incredible – a murder mystery with paranormal elements this looks like a really suspenseful read.

Buzzworthy Scale:

buzz 4


Amity by Micol Ostow

amity

Expected release date: August 26 2014

I have always been pretty fascinated by the events surrounding Amityville – I have read the original book and seen all the films. I do think the Lutz’s story is likely a hoax but the story of the DeFeo family is truly horrific. This book definitely looks interesting.

Buzzworthy Scale:

buzz 3


Well, that is my list of most highly anticipated books that are being released in August. There are probably many (many) others that have temporarily slipped my mind but the above are the ones that have caught my eye. Going by my Buzzworthy scale, I would say that the most likely purchases are (in order of excitement):

gates  fiendish

girl  metal  feral

islands  servants  some  amity

merciless

forget  unfinished
