Well, it’s happened again. Another month gone. This month marked the end of soccer for my son, my daughter’s first dance show, and the end of kindergarten. Starting in June I will officially have a First Grader and a soon-to-be preschooler. This year is passing quickly. The silver lining in this? All of these new books come out very soon! I’ve put together a list of anticipated June releases, many of which I’m very excited about.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo : Release Date June 5 – I am really excited to read this new fantasy novel that’s getting tons of love on Goodreads, but mostly I just love the cover
A Midsummers Nightmare by Kody Keplinger : Release Date June 5 – I’m not really sure about this contemporary young adult novel about a girl who hates her life and deals with it by acting out. I also have yet to read anything by this author, though she’s written several other books.
Timepiece by Myra McEntire : Release Date June 12 – This is the second book in the Hourglass series and the third was just picked up and will be released next year. I’ve already read Timepiece and wrote a review that I posted on my blog. I actually liked Timepiece more than Hourglass. Together they make a great time travel series and I definitely recommend reading these books.
Rapture by Lauren Kate : Release Date June 12 – This is the fourth and final book in The Fallen series. I haven’t read these yet, but now that the series is complete, I’ll have to put them on my list.
The Golden Lily by Rachelle Mead : Release Date June 12 – The is the second book in the Bloodlines series that is the spinoff from Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund : Release Date June 12 – This post-apocalyptic dystopian romance is based on Jane Austen’s Persuasion. I definitely want to read this one.
Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson : Release Date June 12 – Another young adult contemporary on the list, this time a romance. The summary makes it sound a bit like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, but I’m not sure yet if that’s a fair comparison or not. Either way, I’m excited to read this one.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick : Release Date June 14 – This is a contemporary young adult romance about a girl who wishes she could belong to a different family and then falls in love with their son. It sounds like a great YA romance and is getting pretty good reviews so far on Goodreads. I’ve already added it to my list.
One Moment by Kristina McBride : Release Date June 26 – The summary for this book makes it sound like a contemporary young adult mystery. I’m looking forward to reading this one, I received a copy from NetGalley, and will have a review up in a couple of weeks.
That’s my list of June releases. I don’t think I’ve ever had so many YA contemporaries on a list before, but I’m definitely looking forward to most of them. Which book are you most excited for next month? Are you looking forward to one that I left off the list? Let me know what your anticipated June releases are!
