Hey everyone! I’m not sure where you are in the world but where I’m at, it’s hotter than a metal chair left out in the sun all day! Not only is the temperature at a redonkulous high but so is the amount of books coming out this upcoming month (July went by hella fast!)!

It’s disrespectfully so!

Just a quick reminder that sometimes the release dates change so please double check the titles you are anticipating just in case! Some times I find out the week of original pub date that the dates got pushed back. Unfortunately, I can’t control publishing or supply chain issues (but could you imagine if I cooooooould?!). Anyways, I’m quite excited for so many of the books coming out so let’s get into this list:

I’m excited for this list!

Despite the fact that I’ve been reading like a madwoman, I am behind in my ARC TBR & am currently finishing up my July ARCs so I won’t get to start reading my August ARCS until after the 2nd. Though, I just found out that Dauntless by Elisa Bonnin got pushed back & I read it when I thought it came out in July! I do hope to catch up this month!

I really really am!

What are y’all excited for this month? Did I miss any coming out by POC authors (quick shout out to my bookstagram homie @raethereviewer for reminding me of a few titles)?! Please let me know in the comments or on social media on Instagram @bookishgirlmagic (I finally got my account access back AYEEEEEEEEE), Twitter @bookishgrlmagic and Clubhouse @bookishgrlmagic where you can find me mostly in book centered clubs/rooms (primarily on Tuesdays and Fridays). Also please subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already because it makes me feel like I’ve been reading while enjoying a cool treat on a hot day! As usual, I’m sending you tons of bookish love & wish you happy reading!

Byeeeeee
