How are we already talking about June 2023? We keep saying this, but 2023 is really flying by. But a new month also means new books! So what are our most anticipated June releases? Keep on reading to find out!
Shanghai Immortal – A.Y. Chao (June 1st)
This adult fantasy debut sounds really cool, the setting is jazz age Shanghai and has Chinese deities and demons. The main character is half-vampire and half-hulijing fox-spirit and is the ward of the King of Hell. I’m super curious to discover this world!
The Dos and Donuts of Love – Adiba Jaigirdar (June 6th)
I’ve read a few books by Adiba Jaigirdar and really enjoyed them The Dos and Donuts of Love caught my attention, because there’s a televised baking program involved. Add some romance and this book had me sold! Hopefully I can pick this one up in June.
Unfortunately Yours – Tessa Bailey (June 6th)
Secretly Yours was a book I read earlier this year and I enjoyed it. In Unfortunately Yours we follow Natalie who we met in the first book. This seems to have the marriage of convenience trope which means I just have to read it. I was really lucky to get an eARC on Netgalley and this will probably be one of my first reads in June.
Speak of the Devil – Rose Wilding (June 13th)
I’ll just leave you with this part of the synopsis; Seven women stand in shock in a seedy hotel room; a man’s severed head sits in the centre of the floor. Each of the women – the wife, the teenager, the ex, the journalist, the colleague, the friend, and the woman who raised him – has a very good reason to have done it, yet each swears she did not. Sounds like an intriguing mystery to me!
Love, Theoretically – Ali Hazelwood (June 13th)
Ali Hazelwood’s books to all have the same formula, but I’ve loved the first two and it just seems to work. I’m excited to read Elsie’s and Jack’s story!
You’re Not Supposed to Die Tonight – Kalynn Bayron (June 20th)
This is a YA horror story about a girl who plays a ‘final girl’ at a full-contact terror game based on a slasher movie. Her co-workers start disappearing and one ends up dead. Sounds like a good thrilling story, and from the reviews it sounds like it’s actually scary. So maybe this is too much for me haha, but it does sound good!
The Only One Left – Riley Sager (June 20th)
This sounds like an amazing thriller. Our MC is a caregiver and the lady currently in her care was suspected of killing her whole family when she was seventeen. She tells the MC that she will tell her the whole story but she might not be trustworthy. I love it when I can’t trust the person telling the story and I’m so excited to find out if the lady did kill her family.
The Archive Undying – Emma Mieko Candon (June 27th)
This is a scifi story and the first book in a new series. It has AI gods, something that sounds really cool but also scary. And the synopsis has this part that just got me really excited; WHEN AN AI DIES, ITS CITY DIES WITH IT
WHEN A CITY FALLS, IT LEAVES A CORPSE BEHIND
WHEN THAT CORPSE RUNS OFF, ONLY DEVOTION CAN BRING IT BACK
Playing For Keeps – Tristen Crone (June 27th)
Playing for Keeps is a book I’ve seen promoted a lot on Twitter and one I’ve been excited to reading! I got an eARC of this grumpy/sunshine romance that also just happens to have a plus-sized MC and board games. What more could you ask for? I’ll hopefully have my review up on the blog before release day.
The Seven Year Slip – Ashley Poston (June 27th)
After loving The Dead Romantics I’ve been anxiously awaiting Ashley Poston’s next adult romance. Our main character sees a man in her late aunt’s apartment. This could be someone she falls in love with, except for the problem that he lives seven years in the past. This is going to be so interesting, but I’m also afraid this author is going to make me cry again.
So here are the releases we’re really excited about that are releasing in June! Are you excited for any one of these? Or did we miss any releases you think everyone needs to know about? Let us know in the comments!
