Another month, another batch of books to drool over. I cannot wait for As Good as Dead and I’ve already read and reviewed A Master of Djinn and The Rookery. Oh and bonus mention for the Labyrinth Tarot Deck! Excuse the Amazon link but they seem to be the only retailer with extra pictures of the cards and it’s so adorable.

Let me know which August releases you’re most excited about.
