Book Releases June 2020
I am sorry for not having any reviews these last weeks, but I am struggling and I am wondering whether I should keep the blog going. But still, summer has arrived and makes reading enticing to do. So here are my favourite releases of June.
My Calamity Jane (The Lady Janies #3) by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows
The Court of Miracles (Court of Miracles #1) by Kester Grant
Seasons of the Storm (Seasons of the Storm #1) by Elle Cosimano
Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross
I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick
My Calamity Jane (The Lady Janies #3) by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows (June 2)
Welcome to 1876 and a rootin’-tootin’ America bursting with gunslingers, outlaws, and garou.
JANE (a genuine hero-eene)
Calamity’s her name, and garou hunting’s her game—when she’s not starring in Wild Bill’s Traveling Show, that is. She reckons that if a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one.
FRANK (*wolf whistle*)
Frank “the Pistol Prince” Butler is the Wild West’s #1 bachelor. He’s also the best sharpshooter on
both sides of the Mississippi, but he’s about to meet his match. . . .
ANNIE (get your gun!)
Annie Oakley (yep, that Annie) is lookin’ for a job, not a romance, but she can’t deny there’s something about Frank she likes. Really likes. Still, she’s pretty sure that anything he can do,
she can do better.
A HAIRY SITUATION
After a garou hunt goes south and Jane finds a suspicious-like bite on her arm, she turns tail for Deadwood, where there’s been talk of a garou cure. But things ain’t always what they seem—meaning the gang better hightail it after her before they’re a day late and a Jane short.
Finally! I have been waiting for My Calamity Jane for ages and it is nearly here. And then I still have to order it… But I will get it.
The Court of Miracles (Court of Miracles #1) by Kester Grant (June 2)
In the violent urban jungle of an alternate 1828 Paris, the French Revolution has failed and the city is divided between merciless royalty and nine underworld criminal guilds, known as the Court of Miracles. Eponine (Nina) Thénardier is a talented cat burglar and member of the Thieves Guild. Nina’s life is midnight robberies, avoiding her father’s fists, and watching over her naïve adopted sister, Cosette (Ettie). When Ettie attracts the eye of the Tiger–the ruthless lord of the Guild of Flesh–Nina is caught in a desperate race to keep the younger girl safe. Her vow takes her from the city’s dark underbelly to the glittering court of Louis XVII. And it also forces Nina to make a terrible choice–protect Ettie and set off a brutal war between the guilds, or forever lose her sister to the Tiger.
I have been seeing a lot of The Court of Miracles on Twitter and I would love to read it. I am very curious where Kester Grant is going to take the story.
Seasons of the Storm (Seasons of the Storm #1) by Elle Cosimano (June 23)
One cold, crisp night, Jack Sommers was faced with a choice—live forever according to the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, or die.
Jack chose to live, and in exchange, he became a Winter—an immortal physical embodiment of the season on Earth. Every year, he must hunt the Season who comes before him. Summer kills Spring. Autumn kills Summer. Winter kills Autumn. And Spring kills Winter.
Jack and Fleur, a Winter and a Spring, fall for each other against all odds. To be together, they’ll have to escape the cycle that’s been forcing them apart. But their creator won’t let them go without a fight.
Already the first line of the synopsis of Seasons of the Storms has me intruiged, so let’s hope it lives up to that.
Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross (June 23)
After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder.
Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death.
Have you seen this cover? (Of course, you have, it is displayed above.) It is beautiful and the synopsis of Sisters of Sword and Song sounds interesting. I liked Rebecca Ross’ writing in her previous series, so I have high hopes.
I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick (June 30)
What happened to Zoe won’t stay buried…
When Anna Cicconi arrives to the small Hamptons village of Herron Mills for a summer nanny gig, she has high hopes for a fresh start. What she finds instead is a community on edge after the disappearance of Zoe Spanos, a local girl who has been missing since New Year’s Eve. Anna bears an eerie resemblance to Zoe, and her mere presence in town stirs up still-raw feelings about the unsolved case. As Anna delves deeper into the mystery, stepping further and further into Zoe’s life, she becomes increasingly convinced that she and Zoe are connected—and that she knows what happened to her.
Two months later, Zoe’s body is found in a nearby lake, and Anna is charged with manslaughter. But Anna’s confession is riddled with holes, and Martina Green, teen host of the Missing Zoe podcast, isn’t satisfied. Did Anna really kill Zoe? And if not, can Martina’s podcast uncover the truth?
I really enjoyed All Eyes on Us by Kit Frick, so this new book sounds already great. Maybe it will be a bit like AEoU and I am a happy reader.
