We can’t believe we’re already writing this post to share our Anticipated Releases in June! This year is going by so fast and we have already gotten so many amazing releases. Every month so far there have been at least twenty books we were looking forward to. Is June going to be another month filled with a lot of books that sound amazing? Keep on reading to find out!
The Opposite of Here – Tara Altebrando (June 5th)
A thriller set on a cruise ship, that sounds like a super fast paced book. I read The Leaving by Tara and I did enjoy that one. Hope this one has some great twists!
Save The Date – Morgan Matson (June 5th)
Morgan Matson writes some of my favorite cute contemporaries. The cover of this one is all I needed to convince me <3
Bring Me Their Hearts – Sara Wolf (June 5th)
Zera gave her heart to a witch and to get it back she needs to get the Prince’s heart. You can probably already guess where that’s going 😉 The synopsis sounds amazing and I can’t wait to pick this on up. Also really like the title haha.
Tell Me No Lies – A.V. Geiger (June 5th)
This is my most anticipated release in June. I have been waiting for Tell Me No Lies since last year. After finishing the first book I was actually mad that we had to wait a while year, haha. We are finally getting the next book!! Isabelle has been waiting for a few months as well, because I got the book for her for her birthday. At least I’m not the only one waiting.
Invisible Ghosts – Robyn Schneider (June 5th)
A mystery with a dead brother and an old friend coming back to town. Can’t wait to find out what secrets will come out in this novel!
The Bird and the Blade – Megan Bannen (June 5th)
I have been seeing this book everywhere the last few weeks. After reading the sypnosis, I can get that people are interested. The Bird and the Blade has a lot of promise.
Sweet Black Waves – Kristina Perez (June 5th)
This is inspired by Tristan & Eseult, a personal favorite of mine! But this trilogy will be all about Branwen and I don’t know that much about her. I think this will be a very intesting fantasy read and I’m super excited about it.
The Book of M – Peng Shepherd (June 5th)
This dystopia sounds pretty interesting although I think it won’t be that much action in it. People’s shadows disappear and with it, they lose their memories. That sounds so awful!
Neverworld Wake – Marisha Pessl (June 5th)
This thriller has a really unique concept and I can’t wait to pick it up. I do think you need to know as little as possible with these kind of books and just jump right in.
Smoke in the Sun – Renee Ahdieh (June 5th)
This is the sequel to Flame in the Mist, a book I still need to read… But when I do I’m sure I’ll want to get this one right away. I’m just pretty sad about the coverchange. Now my books will never match 🙁
Bruja Born – Zoraida Cordova (June 5th)
I still need to read Labyrinth Lost but the second book comes out soon. Once again I have an eARC but I need to read book one first. Also, look at that gorgeous cover. Can’t wait to actually own these.
Fat Girl on a Plane – Kelly deVos (June 5th)
Books have been getting more diverse, but it’s nice to see more with main characters in different sizes. We have gotten a few of course, but it seems like more authors are writing them.
Mariam Sharma Hits the Road – Sheba Karim (June 5th)
I love that this contemporary novel takes place at college and not high school. The synopsis sounds like the book will for sure make me laugh and it’s really diverse as well.
A Thousand Perfect Notes – C.G. Drews (June 7th)
Cait from Paperfury’s book is coming out!! This is super exciting! And while I don’t read that much contemporary I know I need to read this one. The synopsis also sounds so interesting and just look at that cover!
Soulstruck – Natasha Sinel (June 12th)
This synopis sounds so interesting. A girl trying to get hit by lightning to find her soulmate and get her mom’s attention. I think this is a contemporary but it sounds like something I would enjoy.
A Reaper at the Gates – Sabaa Tahir (June 12th)
We have both been waiting for this book for quite awhile. I know it got pushed back a couple of times. I’m curious to see where the author takes this book now. Unfortunately, Isabelle has to wait a little bit longer. She read the first two in Dutch and that one doesn’t come out until near the end of the year.
The Unbinding of Mary Reade – Miriam McNamara (June 19th)
I actually have an eARC of this and should pick it up asap! The synopsis sounds simply amazing, it’s about a gay girl pirate. Hopefully it’s not too heavy on the romance and there’s also a great pirate story.
This contemporary novel about a Muslim girl sounds great. I also saw some great reviews and think this diverse read will be great.
Now You See Her – Lisa Leighton (June 26th)
This sounds like a book that keeps us on the edge of our seats. It’s an unique concept. Books like this normally don’t interest me, but this one is definitely high on my wishlist.
We both absolutely ADORED My Lady Jane and couldn’t believe it took is so long to finally pick it up. Luckily that meant less of a wait for My Plain Jane. I don’t really know anything about Jane Eyre but I’m sure this will be another amazing book.
An anthology with reimaginings of folklore and mythology from East and South Asia, this sounds amazing. I saw some positive reviews and definitely want to read this.
Trail of Lightning – Rebecca Roanhorse (June 26th)
A climate apocalypse, gods and heroes of legends, monsters, a monster hunter and a medicine man. This start of a new series sounds really good to me!
More Than Words – Mia Sheridan (June 12th)
Archer’s Voice is a favorite of mine, so Mia’s book almost automatically go on my wishlist. She writes heartbreaking, but beautiful stories.
Always Forever Maybe – Anica Mrose Rissi (June 5th)
The first thing I noticed about Always Forever Maybe was the cover, because it’s stunning. Reading the sypnosis makes me feel like we’re getting a book that is going to be intense and maybe not easy to read. I feel that it’s important to not always have fluffy books, so I’m excited to see how this turns out.
A Flicker in the Clarity – Amy McNamara (June 12th)
Another beautiful cover! It seems like this summer, a lot of books are focused on friendships and troubles that can influence them. A Flicker in the Clarity seems a bit intense though, because saving a friend isn’t an easy task in some cases.
Providence – Caroline Kepnes (June 19th)
Caroline Kepnes knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved her books You and Hidden Bodies. I’m hoping that Providence is just as good or even better.
Little Do We Know – Tamara Ireland Stone (June 5th)
Tamara Ireland Stone is an amazing author. Little Do We Know sounds like a book with a lot of lessons. After a friendship falls apart, only something big brings them back together, but can it heal their friendship?
The Summer of Us – Cecelia Vinesse (June 5th)
Living in Europe, it’s exciting to see a book that have the main characters visit different places than only the USA. Of course, there is added drama to keep the book interesting, haha. The Summer of Us seems like a good book to read while sitting on the beach.
Final Draft – Riley Redgate (June 12th)
Riley Redgate is an author that I have heard about and have wanted to read something from for awhile. Final Draft sounds like a good one to start with. As a book person, I love reading about characters that love to write. I’m interested to see how this character will be challenged by the new teacher.
Freshmen – Tom Ellen & Lucy Ivison (June 12th)
There hasn’t been many books where the main characters are off to their first year of college. At least that I know of. Freshmen seems like a refreshing books of characters discovering who they are in new situations.
Love Scene, Take Two – Alex Evansley (June 12th)
This book is being published by Swoon Reads and they haven’t disappointed me yet! I am a total geek, so when a book involves a love story with an author or the main character being a big fan of a series, I’m sold, haha. They’re the right elements for a good contemporary. That is why I was happy that there was a signup for the blog tour for Love Scene, Take Two. I will be reviewing it in June.
The Boyfriend Bracket – Kate Evangelista (June 19th)
This summer is really filled with contemporary books. I’m loving it! Books where the main character plots ways to get a boyfriend are always really fun reads. It’s something that has been done a lot, but for some reason authors are still able to find a different way to write this story.
Love Me, Love Me Not – SM Koz (June 19th)
Foster care is a subject that I haven’t seen a lot of in YA. From my education, I know it’s something that doesn’t go well for many. So I can’t imagine finally getting a loving home, but falling in love with your foster brother. How do you deal with that? Especially when you have security in your life for once. I am participating in the blog tour for this, so you will be reading my review in June.
99 Lies – Rachel Vincent (June 26th)
Adding this one to the list, made me add another book as well. When I read the sypnosis, this sounded good. A group getting over a kidnapping. What I didn’t realize was that this was a second book. I guess I will have to add the first one to my wishlist as well.
The Fragile Ordinary – Samantha Young (June 26th)
Samantha Young is a new author to me, but this one sounds like a good one to start off with. First of all, the cover is amazing! I think it’s true that having the name Comet makes people expect something. It’s not a name you see everyday. This story dounds like one I will love.
One Small Thing – Erin Watt (June 26th)
Erin Watt has written some good books so far. I read The Royals series and loved it. While this is a different story, it sounds good. Another contemporary to look forward too.
This is the third story in Cassandra Clare’s next bundle of stories. Reading the sypnosis of this one, I think I need to continue with Lord of Shadows before I read more of these stories. I don’t think I’ll be getting around to that until this Fall though.
It seems like June is going to be another amazing month for books! What books are you looking forward to? Did we miss any we should know about?
