20 New Books to Get Your Hands on in August

Here are just some of the titles we’re excited about this month. We’ve got a huge month for crime fans – with a page-turning thriller from the Australian crime master himself, Michael Robotham. And crime fans shouldn’t miss the psychological thriller from Mary Kubica, Pretty Baby.

In Force for Good, writer Daniel Goleman outlines the wisdom of the Dalai Lama as he turns 80, offering a way of living that transcends boundaries of race, religion and nationality.

On a lighter note, Australian thriller writer Honey Brown has turned her hand to rural romance with the sexy Six Degrees and rural romance fans will also enjoy bestselling Australian author Jennie Jones’ new novel, The House at the End of the Street.

Anyone who adored the story of Ernest Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley, in The Paris Wife, will love Paula McLain’s next fictional portrayal of a real life woman in her new novel Circling the Sun. And in Bitter Almonds, Lilas Taha delivers a moving tale of an orphaned Palestinian brother and sister whose lives are torn apart by war.

Historical fiction fans have plenty of great picks this month too – there’s Taming of the Queen from Philippa Gregory of The Other Boleyn Girl fame; The Crooked Heart, a wonderful black comedy set in World War II EnglandAustralian author Kate Forsyth’s new novel The Beast’s Garden is set in the same era but in Nazi Germany; and the evocative Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman is about the mother of Impressionist painter, Camille Pissarro.
