August Reading List – New Releases About Murder


We are barely two days in, and August is already turning out to be an excellent reading month. As of my writing this, I’ve already finished one book, and am making excellent progress on a few others. So I’m going to go against my instinct and keep this list short. I want the freedom to read whatever I want. That said, I do have a few books I need to get to this month, so here’s my list:

The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. I’ve had a digital ARC of this since February, and I’ve been waiting until closer to it’s release (because I’d definitely forget a lot of the details). I’m really curious about this one, and now that we have about six weeks left, it’s time to read it.

The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang. A diverse, historical murder-mystery? Yes please! This one comes out next month as well, and I’m looking forward to reading it. Expect a review of both this and the previous book on this list soon-ish.

All’s Well That Ends Well by William Shakespeare. This is a rollover from July’s reading list. I decided to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream instead last month, because I ended up going to see it and wanted to read it first. I have no idea what this is about, but I need to cross one Shakespeare play off my list this month, and I’m in the mood for a comedy.

I am planning on getting lots of reading done this month, but I haven’t decided exactly what else I want to read in August yet. Hopefully I get to a few of the books from my previous reading lists that I still haven’t gotten around to. But it’s going to be a good month. I can feel it.

What are you planning on reading in August?

  1. I’ve also had 7 1/2 Deaths for a bit. I started it, it was amazing and then I stopped b/c I wanted to wait until closer to release. It’s really good but very detailed. I have a feeling I’m going to need to read it again when I’m done to go back and get all the clues.

  2. Currently I’m half way through Little Women but I think I want to take a little break from it to switch up my reading. I’m thinking maybe a short read. Comedy or mystery— something like that, but I haven’t decided yet.
