Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the books I’m planning to read this summer and as per usual, I chose to focus on the new releases that I want to read. Because, even though my backlist is huge and demanding my attention as well, we all know I’ll get distracted by these shiny new books in the end. So here are 9 books releasing this summer that I can’t wait to read!

Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee

Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee

Release date: June 23rd

The Charlie Bowater cover drew me in, but the blurb had me hooked with its descriptions of epic fantasy, soulguides and sisterhood.

Fence Vol 4 by CS Pacat and Johanna The Mad

Release date: June 30th

MORE FENCE! FINALLY! I feel like I’ve been waiting for the next installment in this fencing graphic novel forever.

Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

Release date: July 7th

There will never be a fake dating novel I will not want to read. And this one looks like it’ll be adorable, plus I’m looking forward to the London setting.

Loveless by Alice Oseman

Release date: July 9th

Asexual representation written by Alice Oseman? This book already has a spot in my heart and I haven’t even read it yet.

Lost Talismans and a Tequila by Annette Marie

Release date: July 10th

Do I even need to explain this one? I LIVE AND BREATHE ANNETTE MARIE BOOKS!

The Friend Scheme by Cale Dietrich

Release date: July 28th

Though I didn’t love Cale’s debut The Love Interest, I’m super excited for his new m/m romance/thriller.

Vicious Spirits (Gumiho #2) by Kat Cho

The sequel to Gumiho, with more Korean mythology and with a bigger role for the mysterious Junu… Yes please! Also, this cover is so pretty!

Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin (Serpent & Dove #2)

Release date: September 1st

I fell in love with Lou and Reid in book one and I need more of the witch/witch hunter couple right now.

Iron Heart by Nina Varela (Crier’s War #2)

Release date: September 8th

I loved the first book in this F/F sci-fi about Automae and the humans they oppressed and I can’t wait for the sequel!
