I’m really excited for July because some of my favourite and most anticipated releases are coming out next month!
As always the list of upcoming book releases I curate does not include all book releases of the month but the ones that I’m most excited to read. So without further delay, let’s start squealing about these books 🙂
July Releases That You Can’t Miss Out On
1. Home Before Dark
I’ve read only one book by Riley Sagar but I absolutely loved it so here I am, bouncing up and down in anticipation of this book. Home Before Dark is about Maggie whose family basically stayed in a creepy haunted-ish house 25 years ago and then her dad wrote a bestseller on it. Now she goes back to stay there and renovate the house for sale and the creepy stuff starts catching up with her…
I can’t wait to see what spin the author puts on this because Lock Every Door had a similar house theme and instead of being paranormal it had a twisted but real world explanation so I’m wondering if it will go down the same way in this one as well.
RELEASE DATE: 7th July
2. Cinderella Is Dead
Honestly, Cinderella Is Dead might be my most anticipated release of 2020! I’m a huge sucker for retellings especially when there’s a twist or different setting like in Lunar Chronicles. This one is set 200 years after Cinderella’s story and now teen girls appear in front of the kingdom and a queen is chose from among them on purely superficial basis. Our mc Sophia escapes into Cinderella’s mausoleum where she meets Cinderella’s last descendant, Constance and they try to take the kingdom down.
I – do I even need to tell you why I’m excited for this book? What more could anyone want?!?
RELEASE DATE: 7th July
I think everyone has heard of Loveless because there are a lot of Alice Oseman fans out there. I have only read Radio Silence by the author but as soon as I came to know there’s aro/ace rep in this book, I jumped on the hype train. Georgia is obsessed with fanfics and the romance in them but has never had a crush or kissed anyone. So she starts university with a plan to find romance which only leads to havoc in her life and others’, leading her to introspect and question her sexuality.
I’m just so freaking excited with this but also a tiny bit afraid that the representation won’t be given justice. All of the authors books seem to be well revered but I always dive into these things with a bit of caution.
RELEASE DATE: 9th July
4. 10 Things I Hate About Pinky
Another Sandhya Menon book for you all to look forward to!
10 Things I Hate About Pinky follows the side-characters Pinky and Samir from There’s Something About Sweetie. I was really happy to get an e-arc of this one but unfortunately I didn’t love it as much as I hoped to. I’m not sure if it was me but this book didn’t seem to live up to Sandhya’s other books. I’m still including it on this list because I love Sandhya and am here to support her and who knows, maybe this book just wasn’t for me but you might love it! It’s an enemies to lovers romance and is based of 10 Things I Hate About You so go check it out.
RELEASE DATE: 21st July
5. Today Tonight Tomorrow
This one might go down as the biggest surprise of 2020. Surprise as in bookish surprise, cause we have had enough horrible surprises this year.
I’m so excited that I got selected to be on the street team for Today Tonight Tomorrow! Going into the book I expected to like it but holy shit, I didn’t think I would love it so much! This book follows Rowan and Neil who are high-school rivals and they’re about to graduate. As they take part in the annual scavengers hunt set right before their graduation they start to fall for each other. The whole book takes place in a day and goes from enemies to lovers so like this already sounds amazing, right?Plus this book discusses some amazing topics and my favourite is the discussion around romance novels being seen as lowly or guilty. I’m probably not giving a very good explanation here but I’m highly infatuated with this book so please do add it to your TBR!
RELEASE DATE: 28th July
