New Books

First Tuesday of July Megalist!

Happy July! It’s time for another big first Tuesday of the month list. I feel like publishing has been releasing more great books in the summer over the last few years. It used to be a slower time, but now there are so many. Which is a win for readers!

You can hear about several of today’s new books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about a few amazing books we loved, including Can You Tolerate This, Eagle & Crane, The Ruin, and more.

Sponsored by One Small Thing, new from Erin Watt, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Royals series and When It’s Real

Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. So, when she sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, Beth is thrilled to make a secret friend. Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and looking for a second chance, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get. Now Beth has a choice to make—follow her parents’ rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.

(And like with each megalist, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. But there are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)

PS – Don’t forget we’re giving away $500 of the year’s best YA fiction and nonfiction so far! Enter here by July 31st!
