July 2019 Book Releases I’m Excited About!

Welcome to the July 2019 edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. 😛

Because we all know two things about me:

  1. I won’t be able to get my hands on these books anytime soon, be it lack of availability or lack of money.
  2. Even if I got my hands on these, a book hoarder like me always has trouble prioritizing her book children. Choosing one over the other seems like a betrayal. 😛

Either way, my excitement about these knows no bounds, be it because of the cover or the blurb (which I know I’ll promptly forget) or because of the hype. So let me just dive into this list and share with you all the books releasing this July that I am really excited about. 😀

#1 – The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead

1I haven’t The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead yet, even though I’ve had it for over a year. But you should know that about me by now. 😛 Still, because of so many people I trust and admire talking so highly of his work, Colson Whitehead’s book automatically makes its way onto this list. Fingers crossed that I read at least his earlier book before I get to this one.

Publisher: Bond Street Books

Release Date: 16 July, 2019

#2 – The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger

2This was hyped up for me by Megan at @whatmeganreads on Instagram. She is someone who I admire a lot for the way she does her Bookstagram. And to see a book about how parenting and privilege, according to its blurb, are at odds with each other, is something that makes it a bigger attraction for me. What remains to be seen is when I can actually get and read this one.

Publisher: Random House

Release Date: 2 July, 2019

#3 – Whisper Network by Chandler Baker

3This book is Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine’s monthly book pick. That’s just a fact, not a criterion for me to pick it up but it does help that this is a story about 4 women taking the course of events around them into their hands and doing something about it. It sounds like a strong narrative with strong characters, and I’m all for this one! I might read it next week or when I’m 60 and sick, or never. One can never tell.

Publisher: Flatiron Books

Release Date: 2 July, 2019

#4 – Wilder Girls by Rory Power

4The sad part is, I can’t remember who had recommended this one. It was definitely a big Booktuber or Bookstagrammer – shame I cannot recollect. K But I can definitely say this – stories about people being held back and then breaking out of their captivity for one purpose and then finding out the truth along the way, is definitely my thing. Reminds me of Everything, Everything, but there are more people involved in this story.

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Release Date: 9 July, 2019

#5 – Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

5This is the story of three women battling with their desires as they remain shackled to people to in one way or the other, take advantage of them. Lisa Taddeo’s reporting and unearthing these erotic tales in modern America sounds like a chillingly realistic read – one that I’m up for any day, even if it makes me supremely uncomfortable.

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Release Date: 9 July, 2019

#6 – They Called Us Enemy by George Takei

6George Takei was part of Star Trek – a series that I have never gotten around to watching. But he writes his story of being imprisoned in an American concentration camp as a child, and that’s something I’m always interested in reading. It might chill my blood, but in the end, becoming a little more enlightened about how the world worked and how it affected people will always be something I look for.

Publisher: Top Shelf Productions

Release Date: 16 July, 2019

#7 – The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

7The protagonist is a bookworm, works in a bookstore, is an introvert, and is a trivia queen. This is enough to make me want to read this one because half of it reminds me of me. But the discovery of a number of siblings that she never knew she had and how it affects her life? Yes please! Let’s see how Nina handles everything and maybe I could use those tactics to handle things in my life. 😛

Publisher: Headline Review

Release Date: 9 July, 2019

#8 – Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta by Amish Tripathi

8I was a big fan of Amish Tripathi when his Shiva trilogy came out. Ram was a good one, but I didn’t care much for Sita: The Warrior of Mithila. But now that I’ve read this first two in this series, it seems like a shame to not read the third one, especially because it is from Raavan’s perspective. So with some excitement and a little hope, I want to read this one and see if I’ll like this one better than the first two.

Publisher: Westland

Release Date: 1 July, 2019

#9 – Growing Things and Other Stories by Paul Tremblay

9I love short stories because they get to the point almost immediately and can be super fun to read. Growing Things sounds like a book that will scare me out of my wits and still make me fall in love with these stories. According to the blurb, these are ‘psychological suspense and literary horror’ stories, so sign me up and hope that I don’t pee my pants reading these stories.

Publisher: William Morrow

Release Date: 2 July, 2019

#10 – Speaking of Summer by Kalisha Buckhanon

10This is purely a cover buy. I mean… Look at that gorgeous cover! Some covers actually make me feel good about buying them even if I don’t like the story. I can’t say that I will or won’t like this book before even getting my hands on it, but I hope that I do like it. Moreover, I don’t have reviews from anyone I know or follow about this one, so if I happen to get the chance to read it, I’m going in without expectations.

Publisher: Counterpoint

Release Date: 30 July, 2019
