Bookish Delight of the Month (Bookish Delight for short) is a monthly feature in which I’ll spotlight the number one book I’m most anticipating at the beginning of the month it releases. This could be a book I don’t have yet, or have an ARC of already – even a book I’m already reading, because it doesn’t matter whether I have it or not, or have read it or not – this is just all about me spotlighting the book I’m most excited for in a given month.
So, without further adieu, let’s get started!
Welp. Once again, I’m behind on posting this. Epic fail!! However, it’s still technically August and I haven’t read my Top Pick of the Month yet. Soooooo, I’m still excited to share it! With that said…
The book I’m most highly anticipating in August is… Girl at the Grave by Teri Bailey Black! I’ve been dying to read this ever since I saw the cover, title and synopsis. It’s been described as being a “Gothic tale of murder, guilt, redemption…” And HOLY CRAP THIS IS MY KINDA BOOK!
I did buy this when it released but like I said, I haven’t read it yet. It is, however, high up on my TBR and I CANNOT WAIT to dive in!
Here’s the cover and synopsis!
In Girl at the Grave, debut author Teri Bailey Black unearths the long-buried secrets of a small 1850s New England town in this richly atmospheric Gothic tale of murder, guilt, redemption, and finding love where least expected.
A mother hanged for murder.
A daughter left to pick up the pieces of their crumbling estate.
Can she clear her family’s name if it means facing her own dark past?
Valentine has spent years trying to outrun her mother’s legacy. But small towns have long memories, and when a new string of murders occurs, all signs point to the daughter of a murderer.
Only one person believes Valentine is innocent—Rowan Blackshaw, the son of the man her mother killed all those years ago. Valentine vows to find the real killer, but when she finally uncovers the horrifying truth, she must choose to face her own dark secrets, even if it means losing Rowan in the end.
So, what is/was your most anticipated book of August? Share it in the comments!
