1. Beach Time
The sun is shining and the bright blue skies above are just calling your name. Let’s kick back, relax, and go to the beach!
Read a book that is perfect for beach weather. Sekret by Lindsay Smith

2. Peach Season
Sweet delicious peaches! The month of August is part of the peak season for peaches. In honor of this delicious occasion,
Read a book that is set in the South or that has a peach colored cover. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

3. National Watermelon Day
Yes, you read that correctly, it’s Watermelon Day! No matter how you serve it, fresh or frozen, blended up in a smoothie, or just a plain old triangular slice, watermelon is a summer treat that everyone enjoys! Read a book with fruit on the cover, or a book that has a juicy plot. Wild Rain by Christine Feehan

4. Camping
The great outdoors! This warm weather makes it perfect to go out and rough it for a few days in the wilds. Just remember to bring toilet paper. Read a book where the characters go on an adventure, set in the wilderness, or that has trees on the cover. The Awakening by Christine Feehan

5. Chocolate Chip Cookies
The taste and smell of chocolate chip cookies is amazing! Just one bite of such a scrumptious morsel and we are thrown into a time of happiness and nostalgia. Read a book that is set in a bakery, has children in it, or that is a pure indulgence. Burning Wild by Christine Feehan

6. National Root Beer Day
Today we celebrate the ever delicious Root Beer. It’s wonderfully sweet and the bubbles make it fun to drink. Weather sipping it plain or in a float, it’s always a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. Read a book set in a cold climate, with a cool character, or with one that makes your blood run cold. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

7. It’s Freakin’ Hot!
The sun is unrelenting this time of year and it’s starting to take it’s toll. Time to hit the pool, or perhaps stay in the shade and try not to melt. Read a book that takes places during the summer, on an island, or that has a hot man in it. ❤ – Shadows of the Master by Emily Rodda

8. Sunburn
It seems like no matter how much sunscreen you slather on, you still get burnt to a crisp. Not only does it hurt, but no one looks good in a shade of lobster. To lessen the chances of getting burnt, stay out of the sun during it’s high time, between noon – 5:00pm. Stick to the shadows! Read a book about vampires, or other creatures that live in the dark. Bloodlist by P.N. Elrod

9. Book Lovers Day
What a joyous day for all us lovers of literature! Let’s take some time to appreciate all the books we have read, and all the ones we have yet to sink our fangs into. Read a book from an ongoing series you love, from a new series, or a new genre. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

10. Gentlemen
Bow ties are an underrated accessory that many associate with nerds. Well I say nay! There is nothing quite as fine as seeing a studly man all dressed up in a tux adorned with a bow tie. Have mercy! Read a book with a sharp dressed man on the cover, or with a man wearing dark clothes. The Christmas Curse by Ruby Moone

11 – BONUS BOOK: Aloe
August is a real scorcher. It’s a wonder that any of us make it through the month without melting into a puddle. By the 15th everyone is tired of the heat and is ready for a reprieve. Time to blast the AC and slather on the aloe! Read a book that starts with any letter in the word ‘aloe.’ Or, with an author that has a first or last name that starts with any letter in the word ‘aloe.’ Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll
