Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I hope you both know that I have almost obsessively (oh, who am I kidding, of course it’s obsessively!) added just about every title on your list of August releases. So many good books coming out!!

Tara - There is just way, way, WAY too much awesome in this post! I’m almost finished with Throne of Glass right now and if it’s any indication of how the rest of the month will go, I think I’ll be one happy girl 🙂

VeganYANerds - So as I was reading I started to keep a list of the books I wanted to comment on but there are so many! I’ve been waiting on Fingerprints, If I Lie and the pizza one plus you’ve made me aware of Capital Girls!

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - The only one of these I’ve read so far is Counting Backwards and I really liked it. Several are on my TBR but there are several here I wasn’t aware of. Thanks gals!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - August has so many great books coming out! I’m excited to get to Throne of Glass and Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff. And Speechless. And Every Day. The Raft by S.A. Bodeen is coming out on the 2st, and I am way excited to read that one!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - So I have a calendar that I use specifically for book releases, like every book lover does [at least it’s digital, making me less nerdy…]. And it’s absolutely insane how many awesome books are coming out in August!! Especially August 28th. It’s crazy. I totally agree about the money thing- every extra penny is going towards the book fund this month! I’m absolutely dying for Throne of Glass. It looks super amazing. Over You also looks super cute. And I’ve heard some really great things about Wake! So many amazing books, so little money. *sighs*

Fabulous list Magan! <3

The Bumble Girl - Wow, so many good books coming out this month! You don’t really realize it until you see an awesome post like this 🙂
I really enjoyed Throne of Glass! and I cannot wait to get Wake by Amanda Hocking – her Trylle Trilogy is one of my favorites series! Pizza, Love and Other Stuff sounds cute! And I’m also looking forward to Every Day and Speechless!
Need more time in the day to read! Thanks for sharing your list 🙂

Kelly (Radiant Shadows) - That cover is really freaking me out! I’m intrigued by almost anything set in a psychiatric facility, so I think I would really enjoy this one. I hadn’t heard of Counting Backwards until I read this review, but it’s definitely caught my interest; great review!

July 22, 2012 - 5:05 pm

Tara - I am right there with you – I’m extremely fascinated by mental illness/psychological books and this one sounds right up my alley. Off to add it to my TBR now!

July 18, 2012 - 1:18 pm

Magan - Hi Randi! You’re so welcome! I really enjoyed reading Counting Backwards. If you’re a fan of contemporary YA, then this will be right up your alley. She’s a broken character, but it’s a wonderful journey seeing how she gets pieced back together.

July 18, 2012 - 1:17 pm

Magan - Alexa, you took the word right out of my mouth. I was trying to tweet about this book review and I was actually going to say “multi-faceted character” but … then I thought that might take up too many characters. Haha! READ IT!

July 18, 2012 - 1:09 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I don’t know why, but I really feel like I would like this book. It sounds so good and meaty in terms of story; and also, Taylor sounds like a great, multi-faceted character, which I LOVE.

July 18, 2012 - 12:29 pm

Randi M - Great review! This is one is on my list, but I’ve read very few reviews for it. I’m also a fan of psych ward settings. 🙂 And I love YA contemporary! Thanks for sharing.
