Upcoming August Reads

I have no eartly idea what I’ll be reading in August. At least not yet. I’m counting on you guys and dolls to tell me what I’m reading this month.

I’m participating in the Make Me Read It readathon (August 6th-13th) hosted by  Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley. The premise of this readathon is simple. You, my dear readers, vote on what books I’ll read during the readathon. Whichever book has the most votes is what I start with first.

In addition to the Make Me Read It readathon, I’m also participating in Bout of Books 20 August 21st-27th, so you’ll be choosing the books I read for that too. Harness the power and. . .

If you haven’t voted, please to take a moment to vote. The book summaries can be found HERE.

**NOTE: You may select up to three. Poll closes on August 4th.
