Welcome to my monthly round-up for August 2014.

These posts showcase the books I’ve bought, borrowed or won, as well as those received from publishers for review prior to release date. I’ll try to mention everyone that appears in the blog, in a tweet when I publish the post, but I apologise in advance to anyone I’ve forgotten.
