Hi guys! How are you? I hope you’re in the mood to add some shiny new releases to your TBR, cause there’s some really exciting stuff coming out in July:
The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager, July 3rd
I loved Final Girls and this sounds like another dark, twisty thriller with 90’s horror movie vibes. This time about a final girl who returns to the camp where her friends were murdered.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, July 10th
Uprooted wasn’t my favorite book of all time, but I love Naomi Novik’s approach to fairytales, so I’m really excited to see what she does with the tale of Rumpelstiltskin.
Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott, July 17th
Megan Abbot is the queen of unlikable characters and twisted female friendships. What else could you want in a summer thriller?
Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen, July 17th
Nyxia was so good, I actually remember the ending (I know, I’m shocked too). So I’m obviously super excited to read the sequel and finally meet the aliens.
City of Islands by Kali Wallace, July 24th
I’ve been enjoying middle grade a lot lately and this one has so many of my buzzwords: islands, magic and hybrid creatures. (That’s basically chimera right?)
Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers, July 24th
I haven’t even read the synopsis, I’m just excited we’re finally getting another book set in Becky Chambers’ wonderful universe.
Sanctuary by Caryn Lix, July 24th
A prison riot in space? Aliens attacking from the outside? I’m in.
Sea Witch by Sarah Henning, July 31st
We’re finally getting the Ursula origin-story we’ve always wanted (or is that just me?) and I’m so excited.
A Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole, July 31st
I never picked up A Princess in Theory, cause princes are boring (I’m not sorry). But I’ve been wanting to read some Alyssa Cole, so I was so excited to hear about this one. It’s about a Latina heiress who becomes apprentice to a Scottish, silver-fox swordmaker. So much yes.
Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton, July 31st
I think this book has such an interesting premise. It follows a girl who’s sworn to hunt the Gwyrach: women who can manipulate flesh, bones, breath, and blood – only to discover she’s one of them.
