These Rebel Waves by Sarah Raasch
Release Date: August 7th

I actually really enjoyed Raasch’s other book “Snow Like Ashes” (never finished the last book in that series though….) and was super excited for her new one featuring pirates, I heard that they were queer pirates too! Unfortunately that does not seem to be the case with the reviews I have read, it seems to be not all that LGTBQ+ and not full of pirate adventures. Not so sure if I’ll be reading it anymore now.

Girl at the Grave by Teri Bailey Black
Release Date: August 7th

I’m currently reading this one and it’s actually really good so far! For a historical fiction it’s pretty fast paced and has kept me interested for the most part.

Nine by Zach Hines
Release Date: August 7th

This one seems pretty underrated and sounds good it’s about an alternate world where everyone has nine lives. Definitely an interesting concept.

The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell
Release Date: August 7th

Genderbent Robin Hood retelling, which sounds amazing but this is another one that I haven’t seen that great of reviews for it. So it might be a borrow from the library type of book for me, just in case.

#Murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil
Release Date: August 7th

I’m pretty excited to give this one a go, it’s about a world where the executions of convicted felons are broadcasted on an app.

The Dark Beneath The Ice by Amelinda Berube
Release Date: August 7th

I have already read and reviewed an ARC of this one, was not a fan. You can check out my full review here.

The Raging Ones by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Release Date: August 14th

I’ll be participating in a blog tour at the end of this month for this book, it’s a sci-fi where three main characters survive past their “death days” and have to flee the planet.

Mirage by Somaiya Daud
Release Date: August 28th

This seems to be a blend between sci-fi and fantasy where the main character is kidnapped and forced to be the body double for a cruel princess. Honestly it sounds amazing and I’ve heard lots of good things already!

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
Release Date: August 28th

All I really need to know is that there’s ghosts/ghost hunting and Victoria Schwab wrote it.

Seafire by Natalie C. Parker
Release Date: August 28th

All female pirate crew, I am so freaking ready for an awesome pirate book! I need awesome pirate books that are actually pirate-y!

Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft by Various Authors
Release Date: August 28th

I have an ARC of this one and am stoked to read LGTBQ+ witch stories, I’m also just a fan of anthologies they’re always fun.

Ruin of Stars (Mask of Shadows #2) by Linsey Miller
Release Date: August 28th

I actually briefly started my ARC of this thinking the release date was the 7th but it switched but so far it was just as fast paced and intriguing as “Mask of Shadows”!

    Mirage is SO GOOD and I enjoyed These Rebel Waves as well! Didn’t enjoy Dark Beneath the Ice but I hope you do; happy reading!

    I cannot wait to read Mirage and These Rebel Waves! I have a few of these on my TBR and most anticipated releases already, but the covers of both of these are gorgeous, and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about them!
