Throughout this month, I have gone to the bookstore more times than in the last few months.  I was able to purchase many books that have been on my TBR pile for a very long time. And to make the month more special, one of my highest anticipated books of the last few years FINALLY was released a few days ago.  Here is all of the wonderful books that purchased through the month of August.
