This is hopefully (if all goes to plan) going to be a monthly feature here from now on. At the end of each month I'm going to do a list of all the books in June that interest me. If all goes according to plan, I will eventually review said books on this blog (though it may be or month or so before that happens). So, here are my June Releases Book picks:
June 2012 Anticipated Releases:
Grim by Anna Waggener. Release Date: June 1rst.-Because it's got greek myths and family drama and sounds like it's made of win.
Grisha Trilogy Book 1: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Release Date: June 5th.-Has been getting rave reviews and sounds all kinds of awesome.
Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. Release Date: June 5th.-Ah you all know I can't pass up a good disaster book.
Hereafter Book 2: Arise by Tara Hudson. Release Date: June 5th.-Hereafter was one of those I was meh about last year. However the way it ended sort of makes it so you have to at least check it out of the library to see what happens next.
Riese: Kingdom Falling by Ryan Copple and Greg Cox. Release Date: June 12th.-I confess, I have seen some of the SyFy webisodes this is based on. Plus, you all know I'm a sucker for steampunk.
Hourglass Book 2: Timepiece by Myra McEntire. Release Date: June 12th.-I confess, I am not as crazy about Hourglass as everyone else. But I did find it good enough that I'm checking out the sequel.
Bloodlines Book 2: The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. Release Date: June 12th.-VA book. Nuff said.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund. Release Date: June 12th.-Persuasion set in space? Yes, please.
