July 2016 is a great month for new releases. There are a lot of books I have my eye on, however there are five standouts that I’m really looking forward to:
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany
Anything Harry Potter related will always make the top of my list. This is a play based on a new original story in which Harry is an employee of The Ministry of Magic and a father of three.
“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.”
The Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
I absolutely love Victoria Schwab’s writing and the premise of her latest book looks like another page-turner.
“There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from author Victoria Schwab, a young woman and a young man must choose whether to become heroes or villains—and friends or enemies—with the future of their home at stake. The first of two books.”
Eva Sleeps by Francesca Melandri, Katherine Gregor (Translator)
“A bestselling novel in Italy, soon to be a motion picture directed by Edoardo Winspeare, and Elle magazine’s book of the year, Eva Sleeps is a sweeping modern story about family, forgiveness, and conflict. At its heart is the story of a woman searching for the truth about her origins.” I really like the sound of the international and mystery aspects of this novel.
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
Undoubtedly another page-turning read from Liane Moriarty.
“Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?”
Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen
“A charming, hilarious, irresistible romp of a novel that brings together nine unrelated women, each touched by the same little black dress that weaves through their lives, bringing a little magic with it.” Sounds like a fun, light summer read!
