New Books

Hooray, It’s Time for August’s Giant List of New Books!

Hey there book nerds! Happy Tuesday and welcome to August already! Normally, I think of summer as the time where there aren’t a whole heck of a lot of new books hitting shelves (spring and fall tend to be the big new release seasons) but thanks to COVID-19 we’ve seen a lot of shuffled release dates and this month is packed with amazing new books.

I’m particularly excited about the new Denise Mina thriller, The Less Dead, which is my current read. I’m also eager to dive into Six Angry Girls by Adrienne Kisner, and the graphic novel A Map to the Sun by Sloane Leong, which I already have on preorder. I also am excited about Winter Counts by David Heska Wanbli Weiden and the first female translation of Beowulf!
