June 2019 book releases

Apparently, it’s June already – did you know that? Time flies when you’re having fun. So lets try to have fun in June as well! What does June have in store for use, except for summer? Well, tons of new books of course. And since it’s hard to decide what new book to read (as always), I’ve made a list of five news books that you really shouldn’t miss out on!

Soul of the Sword1. Soul of the Sword (Shadow of the Fox #2) – Julie Kagawa
Release date: June 18th 2019
Publisher: Inkyard Press
She’s only my favorite author in the world and she only writes amazing fantastical YA books: Julie Kagawa! Whenever Julie releases a new book, she’ll always end up on top of the list. In her newest series, it’s all about shapeshifter Yumeko, an ancient scroll and an all powerful wish fulfilling dragon. Throw a demon trapped in a cursed sword in the mix, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a book! Read more…

 

 

Sourcery of Thorns2. Sourcery and Thorns – Margaret Rogerson
Release date: June 4th 2019
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power. Plottwist, power, dark forces, lies, enchantments and much more. Sound very promising! Read more…

 

The Evil Queen3. The Evil Queen (The Forst of Good and Evil #1) – Gena Showalter
Release date: June 25th 2019
Publisher: Inkyard Press
Gena Showalter is the author of many amazing fantasy and dystopian stories. She’s well knows for her Alice in Zombieland books (which I love for it’s excitement and humor) or maybe her First Live books with the amazing covers. If you’ve read her books, you know about how much passion she puts in the story. So now that’s she’s writing a Snow White retelling, I can only say I am 100% excited and looking forward to this story. Read more…
