August New Books Megalist – The Sequel!!!

Happy new book Tuesday! I thought I was only going to do this in July, but once again, I am breaking with tradition, and doing another big round-up of books, because I read SO MANY books out today that I wanted to share with you, I really could not whittle it down to a few. Plus there are many more noteworthy books out today. So here’s a big list!  And on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about some more great new releases out today, such as The Underground Railroad, I Contain Multitudes, and I Will Send Rain.

portugalThis week’s newsletter is sponsored by Portugal by Cyril Pedrosa.

Comics creator Simon Muchat is struggling to find purpose in his existence. Bitter and apathetic towards everything, he gets a chance to travel to Portugal where the roots of his family lie. After an absence of more than 20 years Simon finds himself rediscovering the sounds and smells of his childhood, the radiant warmth of something forgotten. Having soaked up the atmosphere of his fatherland, and driven by the desire to find out the secret behind his family name, Simon sets on a melancholic quest for identity that helps him rediscover his passion for life.
