Readers’ Most Anticipated Books of August

August has arrived with plenty of interesting destinations for the discerning summer reader—from spooky offshore islands to an alternate-history version of Oxford University.
 
New this month: Alice Feeney returns with a murder mystery riff on a classic Agatha Christie whodunit. Lisa Jewell delivers a standalone sequel to her 2019 thriller The Family Upstairs. And Sunyi Dean proposes a strange nutritional program with The Book Eaters. Also on tap: spring in North Carolina, the 1980s in New York City, and a fascinating book of stories in verse.
 
Each month the Goodreads editorial team takes a look at the books that are being published in the U.S., readers’ early reviews, and how many readers are adding these books to their Want to Read shelves (which is how we measure anticipation). We use the information to curate this list of hottest new releases. https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/2387-readers-most-anticipated-books-of-august
