So there are number of books coming out this month which i am simply dying to read – and ill throw this out early – there is alot of romance this month. These aren’t exactly helping with my procrastination – simply aiding my distracted mind from focusing on my dissertation. 😉
First book is:
Release date: July 7th (UK)
St. Martins Press
Rainbow Rowell and her books have become a obsession since i recently finished Fangirl, one of her young adult (YA) publications and has inspired me to use her book as a case study for my MSC publishing dissertation, focusing on the use of social media in marketing of YA books. This also lead to my recent purchase of Eleanor and Park another of her YA which i have heard nothing but amazing reviews about.
In comparison to her other books i have read, Landline has a slight sci-fi twist from what i have gauged so far – as the plot is centered around a young couple in a struggling relationship, whose relationship is offer a second chance by the discovery of a magical telephone. Now as i haven’t read the book i don’t know too much but this is intriguing already and I’m excited to see her write for an older demographic as i haven’t had a chance to read her other adult work, Attachments.
Finally, this might be a dorky (wannbe) publisher trait but i am in love with the design of these covers, especially the light blue version. I really appeals to my personally with my love of vintage with the classic telephone but also its clean and easily read design. The Yellow also makes such a statement i thinks its going to be really eye catching in stores.
Im also really jealous she is coming to England/Scotland when im stuck back in Ireland. Publishers don’t tease me and say ‘UK’ when that doesn’t include me in Northern Ireland- its so close, please come visit.
Released: July 1st (UK)
Adult Fiction (this is an 18+ kind of book)
This is the next book in the Maddox Brothers series. Beautiful Oblivion follows Beautiful Disaster which introduced us to Travis and Abby – and i got completely sucked into their world and their romance. Jamie McGuire’s books have a level of reality and grittiness rarely found in ‘New Adult’ books. Its university/college setting resonated with my personal life allowing me to mentally delve into their world and i feel it would do the same for others look back on this confusing and often turbulent age. While my university life hasn’t been a third as wild as theirs its such a fun read! And i would honestly recommend it to anyone. Even guys as Travis is no soft touch, as an underground fighter (without the tacky cliches), except maybe when it comes to Abby.
As for this new book we are introduced to Trent, Travis’s older brother and his new found love, Cami. I have been so excited about this book as Ms. McGuire (who i love- she has the most amazing instagram & she’s friends with Abbi Glines!) is amazing on her various social media (all can be found on her blog linked in the titles). She has been talking and dropping teasers for some time now. This book is very high on my too read list – if i could just get my hands on it! Soon….
The perfect description for Jamie McGuire’s works:
Not your mothers romance
Release date: July 29th (UK)
Adult Fiction (this is an 18+ kind of book)
Again – another much awaited novel! I feel in love with Katy Evans when i read her first book Real, which was actually recommended to me because of how much i loved Beautiful Disaster. As this book in many ways is the ‘adult’ version – neither book is exactly pg13, however Remy and Brook are slightly older character in comparison and it produces an entirely different dynamic, alongside Remys difficulties in this series. My heart weep alongside theirs and i felt myself going with them on their roller coaster of highs and lows. The covers also give this away a lot i feel…amazing books but i really dislike naked covers – how am i supposed to read this in public? The savior that is eBooks even though i prefer paperbacks and always want to support authors that way.
However beware: as this series will take over your playlist! 🙂 She used so many songs i knew and loved and some i hadn’t listened to in an age that created feelings and brought up memories which only drag you further into Remys world – i had no hope of escaping and i now have a ‘Remy’ playlist on my iphone…sigh… 😉
After three books based on Remy and Brooke. This book focuses on Brookes best friend Melanie who has been involved throughout the series and a new character Greyson King. The plot (link in title) is all very excited and i love the caption;
What do you do when your Prince Charming has gone Rogue?
Overall i am really excited for the month of july and all the reading it has in store…
while writing my dissertation….sigh….
But these will be my treats! For every so many thousand words i will read 0ne…book 😉
Are you excited about any of these books? Or any others i should know about?
