July is going to be a GREAT month for reading! From YA, to historical fiction, to new dystopian sci-fi… there’s a new book for everyone this month. I could go on and on for days, but I finally narrowed it down to the 8 releases I’m most excited for – I can’t wait to dive in!
Devastation Road by Jason Hewitt: Injured and confused, a man wakes amid a deserted field to find himself at war in a foreign country, with no memory of ever leaving England. A compelling new take on the standard WWII novel, Devastation Road is sure to captivate readers from page one. (July 3rd)
A Panicked Premonition by Victoria Laurie: My favorite guilty pleasure series, Laurie takes it to new heights this year when Abby’s husband and business partner are framed for murder. (July 4th)
What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons: A hard-hitting novel depicting a young African-American woman’s coming of age, What We Lose is reviewed by many as THE debut novel of the year. (July 11th)
When the English Fall by David Williams: In the wake of a catostaphic solar storm, modern civilization has completely collapsed, but where the English have failed, the Amish have thrived, surviving off their well-stocked larders and supplies. A thought provoking study on human nature, When the English Fall explores the impossible choices of a nonviolent community suddenly threatened. (July 11th)
Domina by L.S. Hilton: An enticing follow-up novel to Maestra, Judith’s misadventures continue as her crimes suddenly catch up to her disguise. (July 11th)
The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter: Karin Slaughter’s done it again! Twenty-eight years after the murder of her family, Charlotte returns home as a new nightmare emerges, revealing the shocking truth behind her family’s destruction. (July 13th)
The Apprentice Witch by James Nicol: Arianwyn is doomed – after flunking her witch’s assessment, she’s sent to a small town in disgrace, crushing her dreams of one day becoming a real witch. With a mysterious, magical threat at bay, she’ll need all the magical help she can get to save the day. Reminiscent of The Girl Who Drank the Moon, I have to check this one out! (July 25th)
Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamed: Described as Never Let Me Go meets The Giver, Gather the Daughters is a haunting debut following a radical society on an isolated island – and the women who rule it. (July 25th)
