I was going to keep this post quite concise in an attempt to prevent myself from wanting ALL THE BOOKS, but apparently July is the month in which all the new releases are out. I’ve told myself that I’m only allowed to buy one of these, but let’s be honest, I have no self control.
I really enjoyed Stokes’ contemporary debut, The Art of Lainey, so I feel like I should read this to give the author another whirl. In this book, a Youtube star dies and his mourning girlfriend starts getting harassed.
Kasie West! She’s on my auto-buy list, even if I didn’t like her last contemporary all that much. I can’t even remember if I read it properly or if I skim read it. But anyway, in this book the main character wins the lottery, so I’m hoping it’ll be a fun rags to riches story.
When I’m in the mood to read about carnivals again, I’ll be picking this one up.
This one has a touch of Indian folklore and THAT COVER.
I’m probably going to be in the mood for a contemporary at some point this summer, right?
Hello, Sunshine is about a girl who moves to LA and becomes an actress. I doubt it turns out the way she expected it to.
This is the first of three thrillers that I really want to read in July. I’m really into thrillers at the moment (a couple of them broke my reading slump), so a book about stalkers sounds like something that I need.
The “Final Girls” are the survivors of a massacre. One of them dies, and then I imagine shit starts to go down.
I haven’t read the blurb for this one but Lapena wrote The Couple Next Door, which I read in June and really, really enjoyed. Sign me up for this one!
