Hello friends! Today’s post is about the books that I’m Looking Forward to in July! There are 6 books that I’m talking about in today’s post, with another 6 that I mention. I’m quite looking forward to reading these ones, so tell me if you’re going to be reading these too.
- Copycat by Hannah Jayne || Young Adult, Mystery, Suspense
Everyone is dying to read the latest book in the popular Gap Lake mystery series, and Addison is no exception. As the novels biggest fan, Addison is flattered when the infamously reclusive author, R.J. Rosen, contacts her, granting her inside information others would kill for.
But when the most popular girl in Addison’s high school is murdered, Addison can’t help but think that life may be imitating fiction. And as other terrifying events from the book start happening around her, Addison has to figure out how to write her own ending -and survive the story.
I am legitimately, immensely, looking forward to reading Copycat. I’ve read 6 other books written by Hannah Jayne, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all. I may have rated them low, but the way that Jayne’s novels are written is on one word: fantastic. I love the way that Jayne writes her mystery novels. The way that we’re thrown into the story, and sometimes almost immediately the story starts rolling and we’re left wondering what is happening?, or who is behind all of this??
I’m very excited for Copycat, and I have no doubt that I’ll enjoy reading her newest novel.
- The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson || Childrens Middle Grade, Fantasy
There was no warning the day magic died in Talhaven. It happened with a giant explosion and the arrival of a skyship full of children, all with magic running through their veins and no memory of home.
Rook and Drift are two of those children, and ever since that day, they’ve been on the run, magical refugees in a world that doesn’t trust magic. Because magic doesn’t die right away–it decays, twists, and poisons all that it touches. And now it’s beginning to poison people.
Try as they might, Rook and Drift can’t remember anything about their lives before Talhaven. But it’s beginning to look like they’re the only ones who can save their adopted world . . . if that world doesn’t destroy them first.
The Door to the Lost’s synopsis genuinely took me by surprise. What attracted me to this novel was actually the cover. It’s so pretty! Those pinks and those blues and greens work so flawlessly together. Anywho, not only is the cover seriously pretty, the synopsis is pretty interesting as well! I’m looking forward to find out what Rook and Drift do to save their adopted world.
Another reason why I’m looking forward to reading The Door to the Lost is because there’s a little blurb about The Door to the Lost saying that it’s “Perfect for fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak and the School for Good and Evil series!” !! I haven’t read Serafina and the Black Cloak, but I’ve read two books of the School for Good and Evil series, and since I enjoyed those, I hope that I’ll end up liking The Door to the Lost as well.
- Kiss of the Royal by Lindsey Duga || Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult
Princess Ivy has one goal—end the war against the Forces of Darkness.
Ivy’s magic is more powerful than any other Royal’s, but she needs a battle partner who can help her harness it. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword should make them an unstoppable pair—if only they could agree on…well, just about anything.
But Ivy’s magic can only fully unlock with Zach’s help, and he’s not exactly cooperating.
Zach believes Ivy’s magic is dangerous. Ivy believes they’ll never win the war without it. Two warriors, one goal, and the fate of their world on the line. But the more they argue, the more they fall for each other. And only one of them can be right…
Kiss of the Royal piques my interest. I’m genuinely curious about Kiss of the Royal, and how this book will play out, but I’m not really sure on what will happen, or even if I’ll end up liking it. Kiss of the Royal definitely seems like a book that, in my opinion, would be really iffy for me. Yes, the synopsis seems interesting, but there are some things about the synopsis that just seem so…predictable. Which I obviously don’t want! I don’t want Kiss of the Royal to be predictable at all, but I’m thinking that it might be. Something that has going for this book though, is that on GoodReads, Kiss of the Royal is listed as a standalone novel — which is great!
- I’m Not Missing by Carrie Fountain || Young Adult, Fiction
It’s senior year, and Miranda Black’s best friend, Syd, has run away—suddenly and inexplicably, leaving behind nothing but a pink leopard print cell phone with a text message from the mysterious HIM. Everyone wants to know why Syd left, but the truth is, Miranda has no idea. When Miranda’s mother abandoned her as a child, Miranda had found shelter in her friendship with Syd, who wore her own motherlessness like a badge of honor. Now Miranda’s been left behind again, left to untangle the questions of why Syd left, where she is—and if she’s even a friend worth saving, all while stumbling into first love with the most unlikely boy in school. How do you take on the future when it feels like so much of your past wasn’t even real?
I am so looking forward to reading Miranda’s story. I wonder whom the most unlikely boy in school is. There are so many unformed questions in my head right now, I hope they’ll be answered when I get around to reading I’m Not Missing!
- Letting Go of Gravity by Meg Leder || Young Adult
Parker struggles to reconnect with her twin brother, Charlie—who’s recovering from cancer—as she tries to deal with her anxiety about the future in this powerful new novel.
Twins Parker and Charlie are polar opposites.
Where Charlie is fearless, Parker is careful.
Charlie is confident while Parker aims to please.
Charlie is outgoing and outspoken; Parker is introverted and reserved.
And of course, there’s the one other major difference: Charlie got leukemia. Parker didn’t.
But now that Charlie is officially in remission, life couldn’t be going better for Parker. She’s landed a prestigious summer internship at the hospital and is headed to Harvard in the fall to study pediatric oncology—which is why the anxiety she’s felt since her Harvard acceptance is so unsettling. And it doesn’t help that her relationship with Charlie has been on the rocks since his diagnosis.
Enter Finn, a boy who’s been leaving strange graffiti messages all over town. Parker can’t stop thinking about those messages, or about Finn, who makes her feel free for the first time: free to doubt, free to make mistakes, and free to confront the truth that Parker has been hiding from for a long time.
That she keeps trying to save Charlie, when the person who really needs saving is herself.
Letting Go of Gravity feels to me, like a book where there’s a lot going on within the Parker. I’m wishing that this book is actually about Parker being part of the LGBTQIA+ community, but I honestly have no clue where Letting Go of Gravity may go. Most of all, Letting Go of Gravity seems to be a story about Parker learning to let go of her doubts, her fears, and learning to just be.
- The Future Will Be BS Free by Will McIntosh || Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dysopia
In this terrifyingly timely tale for fans of The Eye of Minds, a teen and his group of friends find themselves on the run after using a genius lie-detector contraption to expose their corrupt government.In a Putin-esque near-future America, the gifted and talented high school has just been eliminated, and Sam and his friends have been using their unexpected free time to work on a tiny, undetectable, utterly reliable lie detector. They’re all in it for the money–except Theo, their visionary. For Theo, it’s about creating a better world. A BS-free world, where no one can lie, and the honest will thrive.Just when they finish the prototype and turn down an offer to sell their brainchild to a huge corporation, Theo is found dead. Greedy companies, corrupt privatized police, and even the president herself will stop at nothing to steal the Truth App. Sam sets his sights on exposing all lies and holding everyone accountable.
But he and his friends quickly realize the costs of a BS-free world: the lives of loved ones, and political and economic stability. They now face a difficult question: Is the world capable of operating without lies, or are lies what hold it together?
(I don’t know what to think of The Future Will Be BS Free aside from that this should be an interesting read. I also thing that the title is a little misleading. Maybe that’s a good thing? idk)
