Today I'm starting something new. On the first of each month, I will share about new books releasing for that particular month. I will have to narrow the books that are announced to ones I'm interested in because there are just too many books releasing to share them all (a whole blog could be dedicated to that). Anyways, there are at least four great books releasing during July and I am looking forward to each one for different reasons. Hope you are also looking forward to them.
Five Enchanted Roses
The second collection of fairy retellings by Rooglewood Press is releasing July 27 and is focusing on Beauty and the Best. The collection was created with a writing contest and contains the five winners. Five variations of the story will be in this collection and I can't wait to read it. I am currently in the middle of Five Glass Slippers, the collection of Cinderella stories published last year, and am enjoying it. If these stories are as good as the ones I'm reading now, this book will be a great read. If you are interested in writing your own retelling, you can learn about the current contest this publisher is running on here or visit Rooglewood's website.
William Shakespeare's The Clone Army Attacketh
Releasing July 7 and if you haven't read Ian Doescher's Star Wars books on the movies, written in the form of a Shakespearian play, you have been missing out. Not only are these books true to the original sources, but all dig deeper into the story and characters' thoughts and emotions. Plus, they are hilarious on how some of the original lines are presented in Shakespearian speech. They are brilliant and a must read, especially if you love Star Wars. There are two reviews for previous released books, Jedi Doth Return and Phantom of Menace, (no, I have not read these books in order) that you can read to learn more about the series.
The first book in a new series published by Enclave Publishing (previously Marcher Lord Press) who produce fabulous books. I actually have no idea what this book is about but it has a fairy with a knife on the cover and it is by one of my favorite publishers. It has to be noted. Upon farther research, it seems this series was previously published. This will release on July 21.
Go Set a Watchman
For those who love To Kill a Mockingbird will be thrilled to finally be able to read its sequel releasing July 14. This story follows the girl from the first book, Scout, who returns home where the events took place. My mom loves To Kill a Mockingbird and will be a book she will have to have as I'm sure many who also adore that book. A perfect gift for your book reader and To Kill a Mockingbird lover.
Well, those were all the books I found that interested me releasing this month (I'm sure there is more but I bet I haven't found them yet). I hope you have also found something new to read. If there is one you are looking forward to, already mentioned here or not, share in the comments and tell us a little about it. More release news next month, until then...
Chew on a good book today!
