Nailed It: August 2013 Book Releases + Pretty Colors

Every time, we throw one of these posts together… we can’t believe another month is come to a close. August 2013 Book Releases? So crazy how fast the summer is going. Hope you are enjoying all your books and painting your nails! Last month, we changed things up and used Zoya colors to make some […]

Alexa Y. - I am in love with both of these colorful palettes! The purples of the cover of THE HERO really feel calming, while the bright colors of COUNTING BY 7S (which is pretty fabulous, by the way) are perfect for the last month of a US summer. Great choices!

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - I LOVE the colors for The Hero! Those look like my go-to fall colors! (that I actually wear year round) The other colors for Counting by 7s would be perfect for a beach trip…. 🙂

Rachel - Every time you two do one of these posts I don’t think they can get any more perfect, but every time they do! I LOVE your choices for both of the covers. The choices for The Hero are so pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever worn purple polish, but I would totally wear one of those choices. And I love the colors for Counting By 7s. They match so well!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I haven’t read either of these books, but I do love the colors in both of them. I love purple, too, Estelle, and I agree that cover really has that dreamy quality to it. I love the nailpolish you picked. It’s perfect, and it makes me want them.

And the colors for Counting by Sevens is awesome! I love that glitter nail polish, Harper. It’s perfect for an accent nail.

I just wish I were better at doing my own nails. 🙂

Lisa (heylisarenee) - Yes hi there can we talk about how much I love this feature? You do such a good job pairing the colors with the covers and it makes my girlish heart all fluttery. GO YOU.

Annie - I love all the colors for The Hero, especially Alice! I haven’t heard of the book (or the series) prior to today but it sounds really interesting! I like the idea of shifting perspectives.

Wow, the colors Magan chose for Counting By 7’s match PERFECTLY. I love how you even managed to find a shimmery turquoise for the little fish.

Bookworm1858 - Not entirely sure what comes out in August but love the color combos here. I think Counting by 7s has an amazing selection and I would love to see a real-life manicure emulating this cover (any takers, Magan?)

VeganYANerds - What a wonderful, thoughtful and personal review, M! You’ve made me realise I must have missed something when I read this – I read it in the middle of a big Aussie YA binge, so perhaps I’d already a bunch of great books and this one just didn’t hit me. I promise to read it again 🙂

I remember disliking Amelia’s dad and not thinking that the age gap was a big deal, but I liked that Chris didn’t just rush into it and take advantage 🙂

Amanda @ Late Nights with Good Books - I’ll admit that when I first heard the premise of this story, I was rather hesitant to read it. I mean, I just think that 15 and 21 is such a huge gap, not only in age but in experiences and maturity. I know that apparently the 15-year-old is “mature” for her age, but that still shouldn’t put her on the same level as someone who is 21 and in college. But I am much more interested in the book after reading your review. It sounds like a good book, and that Buzo very tactfully handles the subject matter.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Magan, your review is SO well-written. I loved it, I loved it, I loved it (and yes, it deserved a repetition of that statement). I think I have to read this book – the age difference between the two main characters is the same age difference between me and my fiance! And, also, we met when we were the same age as them. How interesting is that?

Leoni - Great review & this book sounds so good!

November 12, 2012 - 5:54 pm

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - This sounds fabulous! I love an over-analyzer. And I’m intrigued by the age gap. I’m all about the older men. Just don’t tell my non-that-much-older boyfriend. It’s also a gorgeous cover, so you sort of had me at hello here!

Melissa - Beautiful review…I think you suceeded in doing the book justice. You certainly succeeded to convincing me to add it to my wishlist!

November 12, 2012 - 11:31 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Wow this sounds really great! I’ve been eyeing it for a while so now I know I’ll definitely have to pick up a copy. I love books that make you think beyond the text. Great review!
