Get Your TBR List Ready!

It’s July 2015. Get Your TBR List Ready!

I can’t believe half of the year is over. Even so, it’s a new month and with a new month brings a post I love doing, new releases! This month is special because seven of the ten are debut novels. I know we all have ridiculously long TBR lists but the purpose of this monthly post is to highlight new authors, new books and encourage readers to request books from their local bookstores and libraries.

Now, I’m going to sneak in a few more this month. There is no need to highlight these three books in length that I am ridiculously excited for because I have a feeling they will get their shelf space in spades. Books like:

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee (July 14)

Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal (July 28)

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain (July 28)

Here are ten to keep an eye on if looking for a new author or favorite returning author. There is something for every reader: literary, contemporary, historical, mystery, suspense, thriller, science fiction, fantasy. (Brief blurb taken from *Goodreads. Each title is linked to the full synopsis.)

*A little tip for you Goodreads newbies: If you click on the title link, you will see the “Get A Copy” section after the book details. In the middle is a drop down option with “Stores”. Here you will find all ways to enjoy your books. I get no commission for telling you this or if you click on anything. I just understand that people are reading on all sorts of devices and want to purchase books from sources other than Amazon. That drop down menu will get you to your preferred book seller. If you are a dedicated library go-er, there is also a link to WorldCat which will help you find the book at your local library. Being new releases, the library might not have the book yet, but you can always request.  🙂

What new releases are you looking forward to reading in July?

  1. You have some great (hopefully!) reads coming up this month, several of which are also on my “can’t wait” list, including Broadstreet Gate, Pretty Is and Bull Mountain. I’m on the edge about The Insect Farm, so can’t wait to hear what you think about that one.

  2. Speak and Among the Ten Thousand Things sound fantastic! And Go Set a Watchmen and Circling the Sun! I was really looking forward to The Small Backs of Children until someone (I think it was Jen?) wrote some pretty negative things about it.

  3. Obviously, as I’ve said a million times before, I’m super pumped for Bull Mountain – the first chapter… wowza. Speak also intrigued me, and I’m still waiting to hear if I’ll get a e-galley…. July has so much goodness, I know I’ll never be able to get to them all!
