Start of Summer Reading: A List

I'm thinking of keeping this as a monthly feature.  What say you?

Here's the list of books I'm looking at getting my hands on this month.  What about you?

Possession by Elana Johnson (June 7)

Elana's a friend of mine but I'd buy it anyway because I'd trust her to maybe sway my mind on my like-hate relationship with dystopians.  (I'm a Trekker, I'm a nerd, but it takes skill to get me to like a dystopian. I know Elana has that skill.  And I'm not just saying it because she's my friend.)

Hereafter by Tara Hudson (June 7)

For fans of paranormal romance, fair warning: You will fall instantly in love with Joshua just as Amelia does.  This one feels like such a breath of fresh air in the world of paranormal fiction.  (Note, I won an ARC of this in a contest, but I'll probably buy a copy from the store.)

Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke (June 7)

Dragons, shapeshifters?  It's fantasy with romance (or romance with fantasy or paranormal) so I'm intrigued from the blurb.

Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby (June 9)

A main character who ends up in school learning to slay fairies instead of dragons?  A different take on the fairy thing.  It intrigues me.

Dragon Castle by Joseph Bruchac (June 9)

Um, dragons, castles, war, swords, maybe sorcery.  Yeah, I'm sold.

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz (June 21)

This one seems like a breath of fresh air amid what is familiar.  The main character starts dreaming of her past lives.

What about you?  What book releases are you looking forward to this month?

Don't forget!  There's still time to enter my contest to win one of TWO full manuscript critiques!  Full details are in Friday's post.


  1. I hate being in a position where I'm way excited for something to come out, but my TBR pile is HUGE :D

  2. I like the idea of this being a monthly feature; I'm horrible at keeping track of what books are coming out when! I keep forgetting. :P

  3. Sounds like a great series. I loved Elana's book. I'm going to host her on Monday & give away 2-3 books at http://caseylmccormick.blogspot.com/ if you want to enter.

    I just got Divergent from the library. Can't wait to read it and a ton of other books.

  4. I'm always interested in finding out, not only what someone wants to read, but why she wants to read it. So, these lists are interesting to me, and I hope you keep them up! I definitely get a sense of what you like!

  5. Awesome list--I'm honored to be included. :)
