Today I’m going to be sharing with you all of the books I plan to read this month! This month I plan to read and STRICTLY follow my TBR as most of my most anticipated books are coming out this month!
Let’s get started!
1. The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer
I don’t want to give you a synopsis as that will spoil the other books but I will give you a little back story as to why this is my most anticipated book of the year. Growing up, I absolutley adored fairy tales, especially going to Walt Disney World. I’ve been going to disney once a year, every year, since I was four years old. To this day I still feel the magic as soon as I see Cinderella’s Castle. I found the first book to this series one day while browsing the middle grade section in costco. I remember this day as if it were yesterday. I devoured the first two books and I can’t wait for the third one.This book was also made by a familiar figure in the Hollywood industry. Chris Colfer is a main charcter on the show glee.
2. Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth
This book is a bind up of four short stories written in Four’s percpective from the books Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant.
3. Linked by Imogen Howson
Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.
Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.
Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.
Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.
Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.
4. Unravel by Imogen Howson
I can’t tell you the summary of this book as it will spoil the previous book. I recieved this book for review from Simon and Schuster Canada, so look out for a review of the first two books sometime soon.
5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
From the author of the New York Times bestseller Eleanor & Park.
A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love.
Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…
But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.
Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?
Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
“Touching and utterly real.” — Publisher’s Weekly
6. The Giver by Lois Lowry
Jonas’ world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
Those are all the books I plan on reading for the month of July!
