November 27, 2012 - 11:46 pm

Kim @ Curious Tales of Modern Lore - Great picks!!! I am trying to branch out of dark and twisted murder stories and experience more light-hearted fiction, so I am definitely looking forward to This is What Happy Looks Like.

November 27, 2012 - 11:20 pm

Addie - After seeing nobody but us, I am going to add it to the top of my reading pile!
Gorgeous blog btw, I love the muted colors – classy!

Going Vintage sounds so good! And you just know that when a girl swears off guys she’s going to fall epicly in love and I’m already smiling thinking of it 😀

November 27, 2012 - 3:17 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I absolutely adore the cover of This is What Happy Looks Like – it’s so cute! Plus, the story sounds really sweet, and I love how Jennifer writes.

And Reboot sounds AWESOME. I have heard of it, and it’s on my want to read shelf on GR, but I just wanted to say again that it sounds AMAZING.

The book I hadn’t heard of but is now on my list thanks to your post is Return to Me. The premise sounds so intriguing!

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Uh, yes to all of these! Literally. ALL OF THEM. I want to read them all so badly, haha! Ugh, we needed to have a top 50 list for this week’s topic, haha! Man, how did I forget to include Reboot? THAT COVER!

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*
