What to Read in July: New Releases To Watch For

July 4, 2012 Young Adult 7

Wow it’s July already! How’s everyone doing with their reading goals? Need some inspiration or are you looking to catch up on the books on your shelves? I always need to catch up of course, but I still have my eye on several books due out this month:

July 3:

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield (July 5) – A summer murder mystery that looks intriguing.

Dark Companion by Marta Costa – A gothic novel that centers on a girl in the foster care system who gets invited to attend an exclusive boarding school, but strange things are happening there.

Once by Anna Carey – The sequel to last year’s Eve

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson – I’ve always liked Peter Pan, and this re-telling sounds lovely and sad.

July 10:

Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire – A popular girl gets a taste of the popular life when her dad’s invention sends her to a parallel universe.

The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse –  I just recently heard about this dystopian, and it sounds action-packed and intense.

Insignia by S.J. Kincaid – Another fast-paced dystopian that looks really great.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – For high fantasy fans, Seraphina has been getting high marks.

Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness – The highly anticipated sequel of A Discovery of Witches.

Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols – Contemporary romance fans, be sure to pick this one up!

The Thing About the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt – Both parties have something to hide in this contemporary romance.

July 17:

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer – As a Gleek I’m curious about this book, and I like middle grade books so I’d give it a chance.

July 24:

Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein – I like that this mob and action adventure mystery is something you don’t see often in YA.

Endlessly by Kiersten White – The last book in the Paranormalcy trilogy.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard – Zombies and steampunk, it sounds really imaginative and fun.

July 31

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry – An intense romance from a debut author.

    You make me want to get into YA fiction again! And Discovery of Witches is in my TBR pile, so I’m sure I’ll be reading the sequel.

    There’s so many good reads already this summer! I need to get my hands on a copy of Endlessly and finish that series. I’ve heard Tiger Lily is really good too! Great list, I want to read like everything here!

    I’ve been hearing such good things about Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone! It looked really creepy and whatnot when I saw it first, but since then it’s gotten amazing praise. I looooove books edited by Julie Strauss Gable in general and John Green has tumbl’d about so… :)
