June Releases!


Vanessa Di Gregorio

Summer is here, and what better way to celebrate than by reading a great book outside? So, I’ve compiled a list of YA books I’m really excited about that are coming out this month! And there definitely seems to be a colour trend on all these covers!

And this month is extra special, because it’s the month that our very own Leigh Bardugo’s SHADOW AND BONE releases! WOOHOO! And having already had the pleasure of reading it, I have to say it is a book you MUST get! Especially if you loved GRACELING – trust me, it’s THAT good!

    Oh wow–thanks for compiling this list, V! I have to say–I love that KEEPING THE CASTLE cover. I’m not sure why, but it just has such a great vibe. You can totally tell what sort of book you’re in for…

      My pleasure! It satisfies my desire to make lists, as well as my love of finding new books I want to read!

      And I thought the exact same thing about KEEPING THE CASTLE! When I stumbled upon it, I knew I would add it to the list – regardless of what the book’s synopsis was.

    GRACELING is one of my absolute favorite novels of all time (<3 Kristin Cashore and her writing to bits), so to hear SHADOW AND BONE compared to GRACELING makes me even more excited to read S&B. I can't wait to read it! Definitely going to be trekking to Chapters tomorrow to grab a copy. 😀

      YES! GRACELING is one of my all-time faves as well! You will absolutely LOVE S&B! Let me know what you think of it after you finish reading it! 🙂
