Fresh on the Shelf - August 2017 Book Releases + Giveaway

Happy August, Cupcakes!

I hope everyone had an incredible July! The weather in Toronto has been insane, with mostly rain rather than heat and sunshine - it's been disappointing!  With that, it's been difficult to find time to head over to the park, pick a cozy spot under a tree, and do some reading, however the binge-reading has still been strong with yours truly. My favorite July reads have been The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell, Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker, and I See London, I See France by Sarah Mlynowski. All titles are highly recommended and are PERFECT for the summer season.

Did you read any exciting July releases? Any favorites you'd recommend? Let me know!

As for August 2017, we have plenty of titles I can't wait to sink my teeth into. To name a few; The Big F, In Some Other Life, Wicked Like a Wildfire, Little & Lion,  and Wonderwoman: Warbringer.  I look forward to sharing some reviews on the above titles and can't wait to hear your thoughts, as well, on your August favorites!

Happy reading! 📚
