With another new month nearly here it means only one thing, more new releases to add to my TBR! I am forever adding new books to my TBR because I love finding new stories that are being released into the world. New stories mean new adventure and what more can you want!
There are so many new books coming out in July and I cannot wait to share them with you. Here are the new book releases I’m excited for in July!
Love & Other Natural Disasters by Misa Sugiura
When Nozomi Nagai pictured the ideal summer romance, a fake one wasn’t what she had in mind.
That was before she met the perfect girl. Willow is gorgeous, glamorous, and…heartbroken? And when she enlists Nozomi to pose as her new girlfriend to make her ex jealous, Nozomi is a willing volunteer.
Because Nozomi has a master plan of her own: one to show Willow she’s better than a stand-in, and turn their fauxmance into something real. But as the lies pile up, it’s not long before Nozomi’s schemes take a turn toward disaster…and maybe a chance at love she didn’t plan for.
I’ve mentioned this book so many times on my blog and it’s for good reasons. I love the books that Misa Sugiura writes and I am so excited to have a new on in my life. This one has fake dating and LGBTQ+ characters and I will be reading it as soon as I can.

Reputation by Lex Croucher
Abandoned by her parents, middle-class Georgiana Ellers has moved to a new town to live with her dreary aunt and uncle. At a particularly dull party, she meets the enigmatic Frances Campbell, a wealthy member of the in-crowd who lives a life Georgiana couldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams.
Lonely and vulnerable, Georgiana falls in with Frances and her unfathomably rich, deeply improper friends. Georgiana is introduced to a new world: drunken debauchery, mysterious young men with strangely arresting hands, and the upper echelons of Regency society.
But the price of entry to high society might just be higher than Georgiana is willing to pay . . .
I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this book thanks to a Twitter competition and I am so excited to give it a read. I was one of those people who got drawn into the Bridgerton and this has been marketed towards fans of the series. So, of course I cannot wait to read this and hopefully find something that fills the Bridgerton shaped hole.

The Forevers by Chris Whitaker
They knew the end was coming. They saw it ten years back, when it was far enough away in space and time and meaning. The changes were gradual, and then sudden.
For Mae and her friends, it means navigating a life where action and consequence are no longer related. Where the popular are both trophies and targets. And where petty grudges turn deadlier with each passing day. So, did Abi Manton jump off the cliff or was she pushed? Her death is just the beginning of the end.
With teachers losing control of their students and themselves, and the end rushing toward all of them, it leaves everyone facing the answer to one, simple question…
What would you do if you could get away with anything?
I have been sent an ARC copy of this book by the publishers and I cannot wait to give it a read. The premise of this books sounds so intriguing and thrilling and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts. This is the authors YA debut which makes this even more exciting. I’ve heard a lot about his other books so I’m looking forward to an introduction to this author.

XOXO by Axie Oh
Jenny didn’t get to be an award-winning, classically trained cellist without choosing practice over fun. That is, until the night she meets Jaewoo. Mysterious, handsome, and just a little bit tormented, Jaewoo is exactly the kind of distraction Jenny would normally avoid. And yet, she finds herself pulled into spending an unforgettable evening wandering Los Angeles with him on the night before his flight home to South Korea.
With Jaewoo an ocean away, there’s no use in dreaming of what could have been. But when Jenny and her mother move to Seoul to take care of her ailing grandmother, who does she meet at the elite arts academy she’s just been accepted to? Jaewoo.
Finding the dreamy stranger who swept you off your feet in your homeroom is one thing, but Jaewoo isn’t just any student. Turns out, Jaewoo is a member of one of the biggest K-pop bands in the world. And like most K-pop idols, Jaewoo is strictly forbidden from dating anyone.
I finished reading this book a few days ago and I absolutely adored it. It fulfilled all my fangirl needs and brought a huge smile to my face. If you are a fan of romance, boybands and K-pop then this is the book to look out for. I’ll be posting a full review of this one very soon so keep your eyes out for that.

Up All Night by Brandy Colbert, Kathleen Glasgow, Maureen Goo, Tiffany D. Jackson, Amanda Joy, Nintendo LaCour, Karen M. McManus, Anna Meriano, Marie Kelly Nijkamp, Laura Silverman, Kayla Whaley, Julian Winters and Francesca Zappia
When everyone else goes to bed, the ones who stay up feel like they’re the only people in the world. As the hours tick by deeper into the night, the familiar drops away and the unfamiliar beckons. Adults are asleep, and a hush falls over the hum of daily life. Anything is possible.
It’s a time for romance and adventure. For prom night and ghost hunts. It’s a time for breaking up, for falling in love – for finding yourself.
I mentioned this book in my most anticipated releases for the rest of 2021 a little while ago and for good reasons. I am so excited for this short story collection. It has such an interesting concept that I’m sure will be a lot of fun to read a story a night! Also the author list for this book is incredible.
