August Releases

Plague Times, August Edition
We’ve entered some weird plague times. A good chunk of the world is striking a balance between safety and functionality. And a chunk of it… hasn’t. I haven’t seen my sister since February and with the Canadian border restricting travellers from the US, I won’t any time soon, it seems. It’s much worse for her. She grew up here, too, and won’t be able to say good-bye to the house before we have to leave.

Find Book by Publisher, Find Book by Genre and Find Book by Author are 95% up to date with editions from recent reviews.

Find Book by Character is still a WIP, fingers crossed I get it done for September.

Anniversary
This August marks Feathered Turtle’s Press‘s One Year Anniversary! 😱 I’d do something special if there wasn’t so much house and moving drama going on right now. Maybe just a little stats post for now? Maybe a hearty amount of graphics? Who knows? (I mean, it might be nothing. I really, really don’t know.)

This Month’s Releases
This August is a month of sequels, it seems.

Young Adult Fantasy and Science Fiction Releases:

The Merciful Crow was the first review on FTP and one of my favourite books from 2019, so I am super looking forward to its sequel, The Faithless Hawk. It’s gotta be my #1 anticipated read for August 2020.

Star Daughter, Lobizona, Elatsoe and Ironspark have also caught my eye! August is really offering such a rich variety of releases. 😊

Adult/Gen Fantasy and Science Fiction Releases:

I STILL haven’t read Gideon the Ninth despite it being one of the books I most looked forward to in 2019 and owning both Kindle and hardcover editions of it, and now its sequel, Harrow the Ninth is coming out. 🀦 Will I find the time this August? Who knows?

Ink & Sigil, The Vanished Queen and The First Sister have all caught my eye, as well. It should be noted By Force Alone also has a fascinating plot, but my dumb, Gundam SEED-riddled brain has latched onto the title and keeps replaying the scene where Lacus gives Kira his shiny new Gundam: “Neither will alone, nor strength alone.” Oops?

LGBT+ Releases:

I am soooooo happy Darius the Great is Not Okay has a sequel! I’ll need to go back and reread so I can post a review. I was experimenting with reviews back in 2018 and the ones from this particular era are… unusable. At least it’s an excuse to reread a favourite book!

What release are you most looking forward to this August?
