Once & For All - Sarah Dessen | June 6th
If you grew up reading and loving Dessen's novels, I don't think it's possible to not be excited when she releases a new book. This book focuses on the daughter of a wedding planner, and I could be totally wrong but the synopsis gives me This Lullaby vibes which makes me really excited.
The Lying Game - Ruth Ware | June 15thA woman has to confront something from her past with her best friends from high school, who she hasn't seen in years. This sounds a lot different from her last two thrillers-- and the mention of high school friends makes me think of Luckiest Girl Alive for some reason, but I'm hoping that won't be the case once I start reading it.
Hello Sunshine - Laura Dave | July 11th
Eight Hundred Grapes was really enjoyable so I'm hoping this will be another perfect summer read. It's about a celebrity social media chef who seems to have it all, but is really hiding something. I think the social media tie-in should be really fun.
The Lake Effect - Erin McCahan | July 11thI adored Love and Other Four Letter Words, and there's no skipping over this cover-- it's so cute! I love that it's based around a small town on Lake Michigan, focusing on a guy's life the summer after finishing up senior year of high school.
A Stranger in the House - Shari Lapena | July 27thWhile I thought the plot of The Couple Next Door was just okay, the synopsis of this sounds like it could be interesting. A woman doesn't remember what happened, but she wakes up in the hospital and is told she was in an accident, but no one knows what to believe.
Wish You Were Here - Renee Carlino | August 15thOh how I loved Swear On This Life, and was so excited to hear about this release. It's about a twenty-something who randomly meets a guy, has a great connection & one-night stand, but he's suddenly totally uninterested the next day. Months later she decides to try and find out what happened (I'm already hooked on the suspense, hah).
Young Jane Young - Gabrielle Zevin | August 22ndThe Storied Life of AJ Fikry was one of my favorite books I've read recently. This sounds completely different in just about every aspect, but it sounds just as good. A congressional intern has an affair with her boss that goes sour, so she basically has to start her life over again in a small town in Maine.
I'm sure I missed a few, and I know there are some great sounding debuts coming out this summer too. What's on your summer reading list?
