June Book Releases That Are Calling To Me

June feels like a month that is exploding with amazing new book releases. I had a really long line-up and I went ahead and shortened it to the top 8 books that I’m looking forward to the most.

While I’m not able to buy any copies of these books I’ve thankfully received some ARC copies and shifted to audiobook versions of many upcoming releases. Either way, it’s very important to support new releases in times like these and that’s why this post is dedicating to me screaming about how amazing these books sound.

Do yourself a favor and go grab a copy of every book on this list πŸ˜‰


June Book Releases That Are Calling To Me

1. The Dark Tide


The Dark Tide is a twisted and dark fairytale full of sacrifices, sisterhood and love. Especially unexpected love. I’m so excited for this one because dark fairytales are my jam. I even won an early ARC for this one but it got delivered to my university during the quarantine so now I’m sobbing and wondering when I’ll be able to lay my hands on this beautiful book.


2. You Should See Me In A Crown


Okay I’ll be honest, this title first attracted my attention because of the Billie Eilish reference. But You Should See Me In A Crown seems a soft queer book about Liz whose financial aid falls through and the only option she has to win the school’s scholarship for prom king and queen. Easy-peasy except that she starts falling for her competition.

Ahhh this sounds so exciting? We don’t have proms in my country but I love reading about them in books!


3. A Song Below Water


Are you kidding me? A black siren girl who’s hiding her identity? I had clicked Want To Read on Goodreads before I knew it.

A Song Below Water is about Tavia who’s trying to keep her siren identity under the wraps in the city. But then a siren is murdered and one of Tavia’s most admired Internet idol reveals her identity as a siren. In addition, Tavia accidentally reveals her voice at a police station. It’s a freaking mess and I’m loving it. I haven’t read many books with sirens but the ones I have were amazing and I have a feeling that this one will blow my mind as well.


4. Curse Of The Night Witch


Curse Of The Night Witch is about who Tor who is blessed with a superpower he doesn’t want. Upon wishing for a different superpower he gets cursed, shortening his life to the next two weeks and the only way to survive is by taking a trip to the notorious Night Witch.

It just seems to be brimming with adventure and superpowers and I’m here for it! Also, the cover is so intricate and gorgeous, I can’t stop staring!!!


5. You Say It First


In You Say It First, our protagonist Meg seems to have a perfect life until she gets an annoying call from a stranger who gets under her skin. The stranger, Colby, is going through a bad time and has no interest in a privileged rich girl preaching the sanctity of the political process.

But this turns into an enemies to lovers story over phone calls and texts and that’s two of my favourite bookish tropes ever! I know that it releases in audiobook format on Storytel pretty soon and I’m so looking forward to that!


6. The Circus Rose


You say circus and I’m there! Seriously, I saw the title and the cover and immediately added it to my TBR. And then I saw that it’s a queer retelling of Snow White and died.

The Circus Rose is about twins Rosie and Ivory who are the daughter’s of the circus’ ringmaster. We’re not given much except that disaster strikes during Rosie’s tightrope act and now Ivory has to hunt down an evil priest who’s trying to sabotage the circus. Mysterious much?

7. I’ll Be The One


A book that is pitched for fans of Jenny Han and Julie Murphy featuring a fat K-pop star? You’ve definitely got my attention. Say fat rep and the book is already on my TBR πŸ˜‰

Our protagonist of I’ll Be The One, Skye, enters a competition to become the next K-pop star and nails her audition. But she’s not counting on the fatphobic Korean industry and possibly falling in love. Oh and I must say, the cover is gorgeous.


8. Hunted By The Sky



Ahem, this book just radiates desi gloriousness? Hunted By The Sky is about Gul, a girl with a birthmark in a kingdom where girls with birthmarks keep disappearing. When the mark gets her parents killed she joins a secret society and trains to be a warrior with magic. Her only aim is revenge but the sparks between her and Cavas might come in the way of her long-held plan. When I say that I’ll give my souul to read this book I absolutely mean it. And I did get selected for a blog tour for Hunted By The Sky so expect a review from me soon!


9. Mexican Gothic


Noemi is contacted by her frantic newly-wed cousin for help from impending doom and she rushes to her side in the Mexican countryside. Noemi must uncover the dark secrets of the house and rise over the menacing family men of which only the youngest son offers her solace.

I’m getting a lot of dark mystery vibes from Mexican Gothic and I usually need a solid plot to make a decision of reading a book but I’m feeling really drawn in by this book’s aura and I can’t wait to read it!

    • Yess, June is offering loads of great books! I’m so pissed that I won’t be able to read The Dark Tide before it’s publishing date but I’m still super excited for it!

    • Yaay! A Song Below Water seems very promising. I actually haven’t heard of tht author duo(I’m presuming there are two authors?) and I usually don’t read much of that genre but for some reason the blurb of Mexican Gothic is super compelling.

  1. I do a very VERY bad job of keeping track of new releases I’m excited about, I can tell you that right now. I had an ARC of A Song Below Water and finished it this week, so I can report that it’s genuinely excellent. It made me really excited for whatever Bethany Morrow’s going to do next. And I hadn’t heard of The Dark Tide — I love fairy tales and sisters so I’m definitely adding that to my list!

      I’m so excited that my post made you add The Dark Tide! Hope you enjoy it!


  2. Ooh, there are plenty of books here I hadn’t heard of before. Looking forward to adding them to my TBR. Thanks for sharing, Charvi!
