Hot Off the Press: August 2015 Releases

aug2015

Making this list is when I discovered how many killer books are coming out August 4th.

august 4th

the night sister BY jennifer mcmahoN

I’m trying to stick with one pick each week, and there are a lot of phenomenal releases dropping August 4th. My top one is Jennifer McMahon’s The Night Sister. I find McMahon a capable, brilliant writer who ramps up suspense and layers in great characters, compelling arcs, and twists I never see coming. Her latest promises to be “an atmospheric, gripping, and suspenseful tale that probes the bond between sisters and the peril of keeping secrets.”

katrina: after the flood BY gary rivlin

I haven’t read a lot about Hurricane Katrina, though I do have an audiobook queued up on my Audible app. I’ve read some great early reviews about this book, which will include stories of how a range of New Orleanians have dealt with the aftermath of a natural disaster in a city with strong historical and cultural foundations.

AUGUST 18TH

the incarnations BY susan barker

I like to include some fun selections each month, and this is somewhat of a wild card. It features past lives, a mysterious soulmate, and a taxi driver in Beijing, exploring the “cyclical nature of history as it hints that the past is never truly settled.” Come on, that spooky description’s gotta give you chills!

What are you excited to read this month? Any of these picks making it into your TBR pile?

      Five Days at Memorial is the audiobook I have queued up! I’m pretty sure I bought it based on your rec. It’s the next audiobook I’m going to listen to, so I’m excited to see how it pairs.

    All of these sound intriguing! Unfortunately, the early things I’ve heard about The Incarnations haven’t been stellar, but I hope you have a better time with it!

      I was excited, but the premise borders on The Years of Rice and Salt, which I had a hard time finishing/enjoying. I think The Incarnations will need to wait so I have a chance of liking it!
