A fun read about 3 three Muslim friends going on a road trip???? Sign me up.


Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl
Release Date: June 5
neverworld wake

I don’t really know anything about this except its YA sci-fi but the cover really reminds me of this iconic image from The End of Evangelion (Neon Genesis Evangelion).

Sweet Black Waves by Kristina Perez
Release Date: June 5

“Inspired by the star-crossed tale of Tristan and Iseult, this is the story of the legend’s true heroine: Branwen” 

So I have no knowledge of the story of Tristan and Iseult but I hope to read it by the time I get to this. I’m just super interested in reading some retellings of famous stories/myths/folklore.


Smoke in the Sun (#2) by Renee Ahdieh 
Release Date: June 5
smoke in the sun

I haven’t read Flame in the Mist yet, the first book of this duology, but I really want to get around it! From what I know this is a Mulan retelling set in Feudal era Japan. Also I personally love the new covers.


Bruja Born (Brooklyn Brujas #2) by Zoraida Cordova
Release Date: June 5

Also another sequel to a book that I haven’t read yet, which is Labyrinth Lost. I have zeor clue what this one is actually going to be about, but I know that MC of Labyrinth Lost is bi, so I’m pretty hyped to get into this series.


Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno 
Release Date: June 5
summer of salt

Solely based off the cover this looks like it could have a queer romance. Which I’m obviously 100% here for. It’s also described as magical realism which is one of my favorite things. I haven’t heard many people talk about this one yet but I think once it comes out more people will.


Final Draft by Riley Redgate
Release Date: June 12
final draft

I know a lot of people have hyped up Riley Redgate’s first novel, Noteworthy (which is also on my TBR). This one seems really interesting and the cover is stunning.


Not the Girls You’re Looking For by Aminah Mae Safi
Release Date: June 18
not the girls youre looking for

From the cover this looks like a cute YA contemporary but from reading some of the reviews, it’s a lot more intense, so I’m interested to see how this folds out.


Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak 
Release Date: June 26
wild blue wonder

Blue blue blue. One of my favorite covers. I adore this cover. I already raved about this in this post about my favorite blue covers. I know that the actual story is about a summer camp and its has some romance in it. It could be pretty good.


A Thousand Beginnings and Endings – Edited by Ellen Oh & Elsie Chapman (Anthology)
Release Date: June 26
a thousand beginnings and endings

I was hype for a while ago when I talked about all the YA anthologies coming out this year, and I’m so excited to pick this up. It’s all about Asian authors writing stories about Asian mythology. What’s not to like?


My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies #2) by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows
Release Date: June 26
my plain jane

I bought My Lady Jane recently and I’m hoping that’s good, because I love the covers for these two books. Also I’ve heard that these are satirical books and I’ve been looking for more funny books.
