Last month we didn’t have that many new releases we were looking forward to. We’re only days away from July, so we’re curious to see what this month has in store. Let’s take a look at our anticipated July releases!
Symptoms of a Heartbreak – Sona Charaipotra (July 2nd)
Imagine being a doctor at 16 and treating people at that age! I have never read a YA book like this and it sounds really interesting. The main character may be smart beyond her years, but emotionally this may be a challenge.
Teen Titans: Raven – Kami Garcia (July 2nd)
There are a bunch of new DC comics being released. I’m not too familiar with most of the DC stories but this seems like the perfect moment to start with a couple of them. The story in this one sounds wonderful and I really like the look of the cover.
The Beckoning Shadow – Katharyn Blair (July 2nd)
The synopsis for this one sounds so cool!! I love it whenever there is some kind of magical tournament so that’s already an instant like. But this one also has a girl who can turn your nightmares into reality. Sign me up!
Spin the Dawn – Elizabeth Lim (July 9th)
This book is described as Project Runway meets Mulan. I have never heard of this combination, so I’m definitely curious. Spin the Dawn definitely sounds like a YA fantasy we’ve seen before, but with some elements I’m really interested in.
Wilder Girls – Rory Power (July 9th)
In all honesty, the cover is the first thing that caught my eye. I love it! Something is infecting people at this school and no one knows what it is. I’m normally not a horror fan, but the mystery element has me wanting to pick this up.
The Storm Crow – Kalyn Josephson (July 9th)
The Storm Crow’s cover is what sucked me in and I have never read a story where crows are a big part of the story. In the D&D campaign Isabelle and I are in, I have a crow as a familiar. So reading this is just meant to be.
Maybe This Time – Kasie West (July 9th)
Katie West is a go to author for fun contemporary books. Maybe This Time sounds like another great light and fluffy story that will leave a smile on our faces.
Season of the Witch – Sarah Rees Brennan (July 9th)
Aaah so excited for this one!! I love love love the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina so I can’t wait to read this prequel novel. Sabrina Spellman is one of my favorite heroines at the moment and just thinking about this has me wanting to do a rewatch of the show!
Stealing Home – Becky Wallace (July 9th)
This is a YA sports romance. And I really like those kinds of romances, even though I’m not a big romance reader. The early reviews are very positive so I have high hopes for this one.
Heartstopper vol. 2 – Alice Oseman (July 11th)
I have this one preordered! Heartstopper vol. 1 was an easy five star read for me and the ending had me so excited for the sequel. I know it is a webcomic but I really like to get the physical copy and support this author!
Grimoire Noir – Vera Greentea (July 23rd)
This graphic novel is about a town where every woman is a witch and that alone has me intrigued. One of them goes missing so that must make for an interesting story. The art work is supposed to be stunning from what I gathered from early reviews.
Gods of Jade and Shadow – Silvia Moreno-Garcia (July 23rd)
This is a dark adult fantasy set in 1920s Mexico and is inspired by Mayan mythology. All of the aforementioned aspects sound wonderful and the cover is gorgeous. This one hasn’t gotten that much attention yet but I think it will be amazing.
The Undoing of Thistle Tate – Katelyn Detweiler (July 23rd)
This sounds like such a fun book. I’m a big fan of anything that has to do with the bookish world in stories. I can’t imagine pretending to be an author of a series when the actual author is your father. The Undoing of Thistle Tate is definitely one I need to get my hands on.
The Year They Fell – David Kreizman (July 30th)
As a big contemporary fan, The Year They Fell sounds like a really interesting one. I know it’s going to be a heavy story, because losing your parents in such an awful way isn’t easy. These students have grown apart and I’m interested to see how they find each other again.
The Merciful Crow – Margaret Owen (July 30th)
Another book with the word crow in the title in the same month! The Merciful Crow sounds likes it’s filled with a lot of history, politics and new beginnings. I love books where royalty and other members of a certain society go on journeys to fight for something or even doing something only for yourself.
It looks like it’s going to be another calm month when it comes to new releases for us! We need the calmer months though, because starting September releases are going to be crazy again with all the anticipated books coming to us then! What books are you looking forward to in July? Let us know in the comments!
