June is ending with a bang! It’s been a great month of new releases (anyone else feel like someone in book world was looking out for us for the incredible titles that have come out during coronavirus?!) and today is full of incredible titles!
I was lucky to receive quite a few advance reader copies, and read some early releases, so here’s a wrap up of the ones that hit my shelves thanks to some incredible publishers!
The Finders | Jeffrey B. Burton
Who isn’t instantly sold by a mystery series that promises to be focuses on a heroic golden retriever?! Incredibly well written, with not just one mystery but two, this fast paced plotline was a quick read that I really enjoyed.
Thank you Netgalley & St. Martin’s Press – Minotaur Books for allowing me to read this one in exchange for my honest review.
All Our Summers | Holly Chamberlin
Finishing this one this week and it’s definitely keeping my attention, the synopsis promised an incredible family drama full of secrets, suprises and a beautiful setting, I cannot wait to share more of my thoughts!
Death on Windmill Way | Carrie Doyle
What I thought would be a cozy, quick fun read similar to the style of Joanne Fluke, this one didn’t quite hit that mark for me. I was looking for a lighthearted read to break up my month, but this particular book left me a bit disappointed even though it had potential. I think I just didn’t connect with the main character, Antonia and how she was written, I would have loved to have read more about the character herself rather than her trying to just jump in and become a detective.
A Fatal Fiction | Kaitlyn Dunnett
This was a total cover request for me from Netgalley, I couldn’t resist the books on a shelf and a pretty kitty but it certainly won’t be the last I pick up in the Deadly Edits Cozy series. Mikki Lincoln is a professional editor currently working, but suddenly finds herself involved with a mystery! What I loved most was her as a main character, this 70 year old woman kept me entertained and it was a great quick read!
Crushing It | Lorelei Parker
I’m excited to read this one with one of my virtual book clubs next week! Have you read it yet? Please share your thoughts if you have, sounds similar to The Boyfriend Project in that tech + romance vibe and the gaming aspect has me so excited to read it!
Home Before Dark | Riley Sager
I’m a HUGE fan of Riley Sager as an author, and I was so excited to get to read this one before it’s release thanks to it being a June Book of the Month choice! Totally different than his other titles with the haunted house plotline, & anytime a thriller surprises me with an ending I didn’t expect is a great one for me!
The Yes Factor | Erin Spencer & Emma Sable
a debut novel from authors Erin Spencer and Emma Sable, is a refreshing and witty story of self discovery, love, and friendship! You won’t want to miss this new release, the cover alone was eye catching & made it a must read for me this summer! To see my full review of The Yes Factor, head to this post here!
Friends and Strangers | J. Courtney Sullivan
This was my first ever Netgalley wishlist book that I was gifted & I could not have been more excited, so a huge thank you to Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group! It’s the title I’m closing the month out with & so far I’m loving it – if you’re a Book of the Month subscriber, make sure you select this one for your box this month!
A Duke, The Lady and a Baby | Vanessa Riley
This one got a lot of hype, and I think it’s so fun that there are quite a few historical fiction books out right now – although it’s not something I would normally read I was looking forward to this title from Kensington Books. Sadly, this one just didn’t quite keep my attention like I thought it would – The two perspectives made it a little hard to read for me, but it was still worth reading if you enjoy more historical fiction romance novels.
