HYPED BOOKS & MORE: August 2021 Recent TBR Additions

Another month, another round of books I’ve recently added to my TBR! I haven’t added too many books to my TBR since my July TBR Additions post, but I have added a few hyped books, new releases, and an anticipated 2022 read since then. 

The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – I feel like The Inheritance Games has been all over Instagram lately (and maybe even Book Tok?). I loved Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ Debutantes duology in 2019, and The Inheritance Games seems like an even bigger mystery series. The main character receives an inheritance from a billionaire, but in order to get the money, she has to enter the mysterious Hawthorne house and solve a bunch of puzzles (and duke it out with Tobias Hawthorne’s grandsons). 

Seven Days in June by Tia Williams – Another book that I have seen absolutely EVERYWHERE book blogging wise, the hype has finally gotten to me to read Tia Williams’ Seven Days in June. So many of my most trusted book recommendation sources (aka Becca Freeman and Hannah Orenstein on Instagram) said Seven Days in June is the perfect romance hangover cure to a book like Robinne Lee’s The Idea of You

The Bloom Girls by Amy Pine – I will basically read any book with a Gilmore Girls inspired synopsis, including Amy Pine’s recent release, The Bloom Girls. Gabi goes to Ireland and comes back with more than just vacation photos: a fiancé. The icing on the cake: Gabi’s mother, Alissa, is unexpectedly pregnant, with her ex and Gabi’s father. 

One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle – I am slowly but surely actually adding 2022 releases to my Goodreads TBR, with so much anticipation for Rebecca Serle’s One Italian Summer. I’ve read a few books set in Italy this year & after loving In Five Years, I am so ready to read Rebecca Serle’s take on the setting. After losing her mother who was also her best friend, Katy decides to go on their planned mother-daughter trip to the Amalfi Coast, but unexpectedly spends the summer with the 30-year old, young woman version of her mother. One Italian Summer is set to release on March 1st, 2022. 

Between Two Kingdoms: A Memoir of Life Interrupted by Suleika Jaouad – Between Two Kingdoms has gotten so much high praise this year & I’m really intrigued by the synopsis. The book begins with Suleika Jaouad’s leukemia diagnosis as a recent college graduate, through her battle with cancer and writing for The New York Times, her remission and then going on a 15,000 mile road trip meeting the strangers who had written to her while in the hospital. 

What books are you most looking forward to on your TBR? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Share in the comments!
