My August Book List

My August Book List | Tea And Beauty

Another month and another book list! This month's books are ones I have been wanting to read for a while now and I am finally getting around to reading them. Two are actually fairly old books and one is brand spanking new out this month.

The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth

My August Book List | Tea And Beauty

Once upon a time there were six sister's. Te pretty one, the musical one, the clever one, the helpful one, the young one...
And then there was the wild one.
Dortchen Wild has loved Wilhelm Grimm since she was a young girl. Under the forbidding shadow of her father and the tyranny of Napoleon's army, the pair meet secretly to piece together a magical fairy tale collection.
The story behind the stories of the Brothers Grimm.

Where We Belong by Emily Giffin

My August Book List | Tea And Beauty

Marian Caldwell is a television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just where she wants it to be. But one night Marian answers a knock on the door...
Only to find Kirby Rose, and eighteen year old girl with a key to the past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever.
From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian's perfectly constructed world - and her very identity - will be shaken to it's core, resurrecting memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her.
For the prcious and determined Kirby, the encounter will force her to re-evaluate her family and future. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to realise that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves - a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

Sunset In Central Park by Sarah Morgan

My August Book List | Tea And Beauty

True love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along...
After witnessing the fallout of her parent's divorce, love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. The only man in her life is her friend Matt - but that's strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore how he makes her heart race...
Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years, but has always played it cool. Until he discovers new depth's to the girl he's known forever, and doesn't want to wait a moment longer.
Matt knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can he persuade her to kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

The Wild Girl actually isn't usually the sort of books I would read, but that is exactly why I want to read it. I love a good fairy tale but giving it maybe a darker side, might make for a very good read.
Where we belong just sounded like a good read as soon as I heard about it, it reminds me slightly of Landline by Rainbow Rowell and I loved that book, so I'm hoping this will be just as good.
As for Sunset in Central Park, I read the first book in the series, Sleepless In Manhattan, and loved it so much I went straight ahead and pre-ordered this book and the next one.
Plus with two of the books being set in New York, it will remind me of when we went there, and I do really miss it and really wish we could go back.

Have you read any of these? What's on your reading list for August?
