New Books Megalist: The Biggest New Release Day of July!

Gimme a B! Gimme an OOOOOOOOOOO! Gimme a K! Gimme an S! What’s that spell? That’s right: NEW RELEASE DAY!

Unlike most months, TODAY is the biggest day of the month for new releases (probably because the first Tuesday of this month was a holiday.) And let me tell you, I have read over thirty of the books out today, and loved so many of them. It is a GREAT day for books! You can hear about several of these great titles on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about amazing books we loved, including American Fire, Meddling Kids, and What We Lose.

I’m trying something new today: I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more I can’t wait to read. (Hello, Monstress sequel!)

This week’s newsletter is sponsored by Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong.

Told in captivating glimpses and drawn from a deep well of insight, humor, and unexpected tenderness, Goodbye, Vitamin pilots through the loss, love, and absurdity of finding one’s footing in this life.
