Can't Hardly Wait.....for August

Here are the upcoming releases for August that have us the most excited!!

Soul Thief (The Demon Trappers #2)
by Jana Oliver
Release Date August 30th 2011
The Demon Trapper's daughter was one of my favorite reads this year so I cannot wait for book two!!! p.s. I think it is really cool the author isn't making us wait a whole year for book 2 :))
Description from Goodreads:
Riley Blackthorne is beginning to learn that there are worse things than death by demon. And love is just one of them…
Seventeen-year-old Riley has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. As if that’s not enough, there's Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad. With all the hassles, Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether.

But as Atlanta’s demon count increases, the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, and pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever

Cursed (Demon Kissed #2)
by H.M Ward
Release Date August 31st

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was one of the first books I bought when I got my Kindle.  I am just not so sure I like where book 2 is heading but I will definitely be buying this book.

Description from Goodreads:

Ivy's on her way to kick ass and save Collin from the horrors of the Underworld. Along the way she discovers that the truth won't set her free. Deep-seated deception leads Ivy closer to her destiny. But, being queen of the demons is not the destiny she wants. Ivy will have to overcome lust, power, and love if she wants to survive.

Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1)
by Richelle Mead
Release Date August 23rd

I only learned about Bloodlines about a month ago so luckily I haven't had a long wait for this book. I loved Vampire Academy and am excited that some of the characters make an appearance!!

Description from Goodreads:

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.
