29th May

Ah, the lazy days of summer. Iced coffee, flip-flops and fantastic books and audios! What could be better? Below you’ll find a list of a few of the releases I am planning to devour this summer….

Dark Age
by Pierce Brown
Red Rising Saga #5 Fantasy
Release date: July 9th
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

As alliances shift, break, and re-form—and power is seized, lost, and reclaimed—every player is at risk in a game of conquest that could turn the Rising into a new Dark Age.

I am a Howler ?and this is my fandom. LOL I am anxious to see what twisted journey our ruler will take us on. I’ve got this baby preordered and cannot wait to step back into this world. ⛓?

The Turn of the Key
by Ruth Ware
Release Date: August 6th
Suspense Thriller
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family.

I will be grabbing my earbuds for this one. Ware is a modern day Agatha Christie and I look forward to seeing what she has in store for us. I’ve not read the full synopsis. I like to go in blind! ?

The Undertaker’s Assistant
by Amanda Skenandore
Release Date: July 30th
Historical Fiction
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

“The dead can’t hurt you. Only the living can.” Effie Jones, a former slave who escaped to the Union side as a child, knows the truth of her words.

A new to me author with a historical fiction set during the Reconstruction Era in New Orleans…come to me my precious! ⚰️

Lifelike #2 Fantasy
Release Date: June 25th
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

Lemon Fresh has seen better days.

After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon’s abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon.

I will be grabbing my earbuds for this off-planet fantasy. I am anxious to return to Lemon and her friends. ?

Sapphire Flames
by Ilona Andrews
Hidden Legacy #4 PNR
Release Date: August 27th
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart.

I usually listen to all of Ilona Andrews works, but have been reading this series. Mostly to prove to myself they rocked as hard as I thought. Confirmed! ?

by Dannika Dark
Crossbreeds #7 Urban Fantasy
Release Date: June 25th (Audio: TBA)
Goodreads | Amazon | Audible

United they stand, divided they fall.

I love this world and Dark keeps killing me with her endings. I grab my earbuds for all of her series and recommend you try them! ??

This is just the icing on that cake that is my summer reads and listens list. Other authors have releases like Sarah Maclean, Tessa Dare and Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews *fingers-crossed*

Tell me what’s on your summer reading list….

  1. Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    I really would like to read DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff! I didn’t get it yet but I will.. All of these are some really great picks! I just love summer reading and books. It seems like summer is the best time to read. Maybe because we are a little more relaxed cause of the weather or vacations. I don’t know. There is just something about it.

  2. Kay @ It's a Book Life

    I still need to read LifeLike by Kristoff! This is a great round up of books. I actually have yet to read the Red Rising series. I swear I am going to change that this summer. Happy Reading!

  3. ShootingStarsMag

    Oh gosh, too many to name. I’m hoping to read more backlist books that I own this summer! I still need to read Lifelike.


  4. MarthaE

    These look like great books to anticipate. I have to get caught up in the Red Rising series.
    I’ll check out a couple of the others. Happy Listening!

  5. Jen

    I have Sapphire Flame on my list – I’ll read and then listen later. My son reads the Pierce Brown series and I didn’t know the next one was coming out – thanks! I’m also looking forward to Kingdom of Exiles by Maxym Martineau and Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep. Plus some of my backlist TBR!

    I haven’t listened to any Ilona Andrews, but I thought going back and “re reading” Kate Daniels on audio!

  7. Sophia Rose

    Those are definitely worth the anticipation. Let’s see, I’ve got A Merciful Promise by Kendra Elliott, Someone to Honor by Mary Balogh, and Brave the Tempest by Karen Chance as well as the Ilona Andrews’ you mentioned. 🙂

    Oh no, I didn’t know there was another Crossbreed book coming out. I still have the audio of book six to listen to. The Jay Kristoff is on my list as well as Sapphire Flames and the Turn of the Key. Have you read Kristoff’s first series?

  9. Ethan

    This is a solid mix of all your favorite genres. I’m particularly excited to read the new Ware novel. Also, how the heck is it summer already?! I’m not ready to face this Texas heat lol

    These all look really good and I definitely need to get back into Brown’s series. I just haven’t made time for them but I do have them all so far and I loved the first ones. Hope you love all of these Kim!
