Summer calls for days spent by the pool and on the beach, catching on TV and movies, and of course, reading ALL the books. Especially some of the amazing new releases lined up for Summer 2018. The books below all come out from June through August, and I actually plan on reading all of them before summer’s end! And don’t mind me while I plan out my anticipated fall releases post– make sure you get some finger workouts in this season for all of that scrolling..
Save the Date by Morgan Matson (June 5)- Save the Date is hands-down my most anticipated release for this summer. I’ve grown to absolutely adore Morgan Matson’s books, and the fact that this book is about a wedding has me ready to read. This blogger LOVES Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings on TLC, and I’m loving this wedding books in June trend continue in 2018 (2017 gave us Sarah Dessen’s Once and For All). I’ve read Morgan Matson’s other books through the library, but I decided to preorder Save the Date because I know I’m going to love it and it has an awesome preorder campaign.
I’m also excited to say that I’m part of The Fantastic Flying Book Club’s blog tour for Save the Date. Look out for my review on June 8th and learn more about the tour here.
The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls by Jessica Spotswood (June 5)- It’s not summer without summer contemporaries, and The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls sounds right up my alley. I haven’t read anything by Jessica Spotswood, but I’m looking forward to picking up this book about four sisters’ summer.
The Summer of Us by Cecilia Vinesse (June 5)- The NOVL has released so many amazing books in 2018 and they have more to come, especially with The Summer of Us. The Summer of Us follows five friends’ adventure in Europe the summer before they head off to university.
Not the Girls You’re Looking For by Aminah Mae Safi (June 19)- As you can probably tell from above, I’m all for contemporaries in the summer and Not the Girls You’re Looking For is sure to please. This one features feminism, female friendship, and Muslim main protagonist.
Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas (August 7)– You all probably know by now that I will read anything by Sarah J. Maas, so you know that Catwoman: Soulstealer is definitely on my TBR. Even though I may or may not know much about Catwoman. I enjoyed Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman:Warbringer and Marie Lu’s Batman:Nightwalker in the DC Icon series, and I’ve found that you don’t have to know too much about the DC world to understand these books, especially since they tell the untold teenage years of our favorite superheroes.
The Winter of the Witch (Winternight #3) by Katherine Arden (August 14)– The Winter of the Witch is the third and final book in Katherine Arden’s Winternight trilogy. I loved The Bear and the Nightingale earlier this winter and will of course be reading The Girl in the Tower before getting to the final installment?
