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 last day in May, here are the June releases most tempting me:

The number one book I'm looking forward to:


June 17th
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo


June 3rd


Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon 
Girl disguised as boy? Check. Skyships? Check. NEED.

Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel
This sounds like just the kind of zany contemporary that could be tons of fun.

June 10th


Born of Deception (sequel to Born of Illusion) by Teri Brown 
I really enjoyed Born of Illusion. I haz much curious to see what comes next.

Don't You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn
I say LA! LA LA LA LA-AAA! La la la la-aaa! La la la la la la laaaaa

June 17th


Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore
Original sounding world-building and an LGBT sub-plot!

Fan Art by Sarah Tregay
Possible adorable contemporary LGBT romantical cuteness!

Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
MORE  LGBT! And this time it's high fantasy!

17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen
As of writing this post, I'm about 40% in and I'm quite enjoying this contemporary.

June 24th


Rain (sequel to Ink) by Amanda Sun
Ink was one of those reads I quite enjoyed against my better judgment, and while this cover isn't as pretty as the first, I'm still excited to pick up where the story left off.

Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler
IT'S DAHLIA'S BOOK! YAY DAHLIA! Friendship, movie stars, diversity, Los Angeles, romance, and cuteness!

What books are you most looking forward to this month?


  1. I don't think I will ever NOT have that song stuck in my head whenever I hear the title. La la la la~

    OMGYES RUIN & RISING!! And Born of Deception - though I'm pretty bummed the Rasputin storyline was just a rumor!

    It makes my little heart soar that there are more & more LGBT titles coming out. :)

  2. It's going to be a really good month...I'm also looking forward to DARK METROPOLIS and TAKE BACK THE SKIES. Oh and OTHERBOUND!

  3. Oh yes, I'm looking forward to Fan Art, Dark Metropolis and Otherbound too.

  4. Blergh, Fan Art. You may like it, but I'm glad Ellis is hating it to just so I'm not alone. Also not a huge fan of Vivian Divine, but it is really ridiculous and at times entertainingly so. BUT 17 FIRST KISSES 4EVAR.

    1. I put together this post before I saw your feels on those books, BUT I haven't read them myself. SO WE'LL SEE.


  6. Ruin and Rising!!!! I'm also really excited for Brazen, Hexed, and The Glass Sentence. And OF COURSE the 8th Outlander book! More Jamie and Claire, ahhhhh! Good bookish times ahead.

  7. RAIN! RUIN AND RISING! Ok you and I are totally jiving. I need those books. You must have been so good and scheduled posts a head of time tee hee hee

  8. I feel like Ruin & Rising may be the death of me with regards to that series. So psyched for it though!
