Top Six Anticipated Reads: August & Women ONLY Edition


Can I be an honest book blogger? Compared to June and July, August feels a bit lacking in publishing. But that’s OK. It will give me time to read my back list AND it also gives me a chance to make this month’s TOP SIX a women’s only list. So let’s fill up our TBR (to be read) lists together with August’s TOP SIX! There is also a bonus pick this month!

Scroll down for my short and sweet reasoning. Be sure to click on the photos to read the synopsis of each book.

  1. I’m so excited for Star Daughter. I’ve been dying to read it for ages. I might have to check out Heart Bones…it’s been a while since I’ve read a Colleen Hoover book, but it looks interesting. Great post!
