Looking Forward: June



Sometimes it's really hard for me to keep track of what comes out what month, especially while juggling early reviews and publisher catalogues and all the other confusing bookish things bloggers deal with. It's just a LOT OF BOOKS ALL THE TIME. How do you ever keep them straight?! So on the last day of the month, I post a guide to what books I'm most looking forward to in the following month and that you should keep an eye on. So, since it's the first day of June, here are the June releases most tempting me.


June 2nd


The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
I've already read this, and I think this could be a super fun witchy read for people new to fantasy!

The Devil You Know by Trish Doller 
I hear this book is utterly terrifying, and while I'm normally a total marshmallow, I do have a thing for abduction stories

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
THIS COVER THE LITTLE MERMAID RETELLING ALL THE THINGS

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
ADAM'S BOOK! Look at it, it's so happy to see you.

The Hidden Prince by Jodi Meadows
Prequel novella (first of four) about a certain character in The Orphan Queen! And best of all, I hear it comes with the first two chapters of The Mirror King!

  1. Hmmmm....I think the one I'm most looking forward to is The Stars Never Rise by R. Vincent. But, I'm also looking forward to Finding Audrey and Chasing Mermaids because omg they look so fluffy and cute and feminist things. I have re-read the Princess Diaries series if I want to read the new one, which I will. I just have to dig up my old copies.

  3. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS! I loved The Witch Hunter and can't wait for Hidden Prince, one of the few novellas I care about! Also Anna and the KPop kiss, yes please! I think I want to read Royal Wedding also even though I've only read 2 Princess Diaries books. And I'm excited for Hidden Huntress this month, I loved Stolen Songbird :)
