Anticipated book releases June-September 2020

What time is it??

summer

Well yes, almost, but more importantly… it’s time to talk about upcoming book releases!

Today I’m listing all of the book releases that I’m excited for in the coming months. We have some exciting releases to look forward to in June through September!

Of course, lots of release dates are changing at the moment (thanks, COVID). As of writing this post on May 27, all of these release dates are (as far as I know) correct, but they could change at any time. Fingers crossed that any changes aren’t too major!

Okay, now let’s into my list of 20+ anticipated book releases!

Kathryn Ormsbee’s first book (Tash Hearts Tolstoy) was a 5 star, and her second book (The Great Unknowable End) was a 2.5 star, so I feel like this could really go either way! I’m curious and hopeful, though.

  4. omg i never realized how many anticipated books are releasing in June until I read this post! I wasn’t interested in You Should See Me in a Crown before, but in light of recent events and because it’s received promising reviews so far, I’ll definitely be picking it up soon. I’m also so excited for Loveless, because Alice Oseman tackling ace/aro rep is my DREAM. and I’m so excited to see how Crier and Ayla’s story ends in Iron Heart 🥺
