Top Ten Tuesday(10).jpg

You know those months where it feels like 50 books that you want are being released all at the same time? July is one of those months! There are so many freaking books coming out this month guys and I’m excited for a TON of them!

Listed in order by release date.

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager
Release Date: July 3rd

I actually didn’t find out about this one until the other day but I had an enjoyable time reading Riley Sager’s other novel “Final Girls” so I’m interested in reading some of their other books! Especially since this one involves a summer camp and a group of girls disappearing, perfect summer creepiness!

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
Release Date: July 10th

I NEED THIS BOOK! I really loved “Uprooted” and this one seems like it will follow a similar formula and everyone else who got the opportunity to read early copies seem to be loving it!

The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas
Release Date: July 10th

Not too sure about this one yet but it’s got a supervillain romance (I’m assuming and also judging the book by its cover) which I’m all about. So I’m curious but not 100% sold yet.

Bright We Burn (And I Darken #3) by Kiersten White
Release Date: July 10th


The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas
Release Date: July 17th

I’m a big fan of Kara Thomas’s books, “The Darkest Corners” and “Little Monsters” were both fantastic, dark YA thrillers. I am ready for more!

In The Vines by Shannon Kirk
Release Date: July 17th

This one seems like a gothic mystery/thriller which I want more of, hopefully I can get my fix with this one! Anything with puzzles of family secrets and estates/mansions always sound interesting.

Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie
Release Date: July 17th

Super excited to hustle up and read my ARC of this, I love a good YA sci-fi and this one has super soldier space suits. That’s a mouth full!

Campfire by Shawn Sarles
Release Date: July 17th

YA horror is so underrated, I wish there were more of them. This one deals with an urban legend “coming to life” as a family camps out in the wild. Very excited to read this ARC!

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage
Release Date: July 17th

I had heard of this book before but I didn’t realize it had a July release date until the other day! Essentially it’s about a little girl who loves her dad but is trying to get rid of her mother, it sounds super creepy!

Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott
Release Date: July 17th

Megan Abbott seems to be hit or miss with me, I loved her most recent novel “You Will Know Me” but really disliked “Dare Me”. However, I have a feeling this one will be more like the former which means I’ll probably enjoy it!

Contagion by Erin Bowman
Release Date: July 24th

Space virus or monster on an abandoned site on a distant planet! Enter the search and rescue team! This is such a traditional set up for sci-fi horror, which I’m trash for so I’m in.

Girls’ Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke
Release Date: July 24th

Another ARC that I have, I love reading mystery/thrillers in the summer and this one involves a trip to Mexico gone wrong when a friend goes missing.

I Am Still Alive by Kate Marshall
Release Date: July 24th

I just received a review copy of this since I’m going to be a part of the blog tour on the 17th! It’s a really awesome sounding survival story, be on the look out for my blog tour post!

Scream All Night by Derek Milman
Release Date: July 24th

Another ARC I have to read but seems like a dark comedy mixed with horror, the character visits a horror movie set where he may get to see/meet more than he bargained for.

Sanctuary by Caryn Lix
Release Date: July 24th

Another sci-fi/horror type of book this one is being pitched as Alien meets The Darkest Minds. I am mostly here for the Alien bit since that’s one of my all time favorite franchises but also I like anything with space monsters…..

Sea Witch by Sarah Henning
Release Date: July 31st

This one is basically a Little Mermaid retelling but about Ursula, I mean isn’t that all we need to know? I know for me it is!

Image result for heart of thorns book

Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton
Release Date: July 31st

Demon hunting and forbidden magic! There’s also a bit in there about being married off to a prince but hopefully it won’t be cliched.

Image result for grace and fury book

Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart
Release Date: July 31st

Two sisters, a world where women have no rights, and imprisonment on an island where you must fight to the death to survive?! There’s a lot going on in the synopsis but it all sounds awesome, definitely seems a lot darker than the cover implies.

    Baby Teeth was sadly a disappointment for myself, but I did just finish the Sea Witch and think many will love it. You have a few on this list I am very excited for, like Spinning Silver, Bright We Burn and I am Still Alive. Hope that we enjoy them all ๐Ÿ–ค

      Oh no! Baby Teeth sounded so creepy good! Sorry you didn’t enjoy it more, I think it might be one of those books where I loan it instead of buy it just to be safe. I just started Sea Witch so hopefully I’ll enjoy it as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I think Sea Wotch has plenty to offer if you can mind the suddenly shift in pace for the middle of the plot. I was very pleased with the ending! Baby Teeth was doomed for me with Hanna’s narrative. I just could not suspend enough belief. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

    AHHH so many amazing books! Hold on while my TBR list grows another dozen books lol. I also have Sea Witch and Heart of thorns on my list. I also am looking at the Supervillian and me, but am not too sure either… definitely willing to give it a try though

      Bookworm problems, I’m constantly adding new books haha! Hopefully Supervillain and Me is a good one, I think I’ll take a really close look at reviews on that one! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah so many of these I am excited for as well. Firstly I read the synopsis for Cheerleaders last night and I am so intrigued, it sounds really interesting so that is most definitely on my list. Another two which are definitely on my list are Sea Witch and Heart of Thorns, again the synopsis’ really had me hooked. I think Sea Witch will be such a fantastic origin story linked to The Little Mermaid retelling and I have such high hopes.

      I know I’m dying to read Cheerleaders as well, I don’t think you can go wrong with a Kara Thomas book I loved both of her others as well! And I agree I have high hopes for Sea Witch which I just started but I have heard it’s a bit slow to start so hopefully it won’t be too terribly slow though! ๐Ÿ™‚
