Seventeen-year-old Ryan Russell dreams of taking over the family business: owning the minor league baseball team, the Buckley Beavers, and making history as one of few female general managers in baseball.

Here’s a list of the books we plan to read during the month of August! Let us know in the comments below which books are on your TBR list for next month. We’re always looking for new recommendations.
1. Entwined by AJ Rosen
In this fantasy book, all characters are descendants of Greek Gods and Goddesses. Avery is about to turn 18, which means it’s time for the Gathering, where she is supposed to find her soulmate. One problem: Avery doesn’t want a soulmate, she wants to escape.
We requested an ARC of Entwined on Netgallery because of the Greek mythology aspect! We can’t wait to finish this one.
Do you love watching sports? Are cozy Sundays watching football your thing? Or, do you dream of summer days where baseball is the norm? Maybe you prefer the Olympics and cheering on your country. It doesn’t matter which sports you love because we’ve got a story for you. Let us know if you have other sports books that you recommend!
1. Throw Like a Girl by Sarah Henning
The description of this book hooked us immediately. Liv Rodinsky made one mistake and it cost her the scholarship from her private school and her softball team. As she tries to navigate public school, Grey Worthington, son of the softball coach who doesn’t think she’s a team player, offers her an opportunity. Liv can play Quarterback for the football team and prove she can be a team player. Only, it’s not easy being the first female on the team and some of the guys can’t accept it. If you like football, badass female characters and a sweet romance, Throw Like A Girl is for you!
