August Book Haul 2016 (RUBY)

Hi, guys! Today I have my book haul for August. I love reading so I think I’m going to do book type related posts, too. Like I’ll do book hauls, TBRs (to be read), and wrap-ups for each month. I’ll also do other book related posts whenever. But, anyways, this will be my book haul for August. I hope you enjoy!

The first book is “Dangerous Girls” by Abigail Haas. The book is about this girl named Anna who is on spring break with her friends in Aruba. It’s supposed to be the best time of Anna’s life but then her best friend is found brutally murdered. The local police begin an investigation and all the suspicion and evidence points to Anna so she’s trapped in the country. Anna has to fight for her freedom and prove her innocence. But while she waits for the judge’s decision, it becomes clear to Anna that everyone around her thinks she’s not only guilty, but dangerous.

The second book is “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell. The main character, Cath, is a Simon Snow fan. She and her sister, Wren, both are. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let it go. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is completely on her own. She’s got a boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor, a handsome classmate...and she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

The third book is “A Court of Thorns and Roses” by Sarah J. Maas. Nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods and a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Feyre is dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends and she discovers that her captor is not an animal. It’s Tamlin, one of the lethal immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it or doom Tamlin and his world forever.

The fourth book is Eleanor & Park” by Rainbow Rowell. Eleanor is redhead with wrong clothes. She stands behind him until he turns his head, lies beside him until he wakes up, makes everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough. Park knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises. Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

The last book is “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J. Maas. After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her ... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead ... quickly followed by another. As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

That’s it, guys! I’ll post my August wrap-up at the end of the month. I’ll explain more about that in that post but I’ll start doing TBRs starting with September so make sure to also look out for that at the end of the month.
