Welcome back to the ‘Books I’m Looking Forward To’ feature! This is where I talk about all the books that are set to be published in July in the UK and talk about why I’m excited for them and why I think you should be too!
First up on my list is the sequel to Songs About A Girl, one of my favourite books of last year. Songs About Us by Chris Russell is set to be released on the 13th July and I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting to read more about Charlie and Gabriel and Olly and everyone else from Chris’s boyband world. I can’t wait to see where the sequel catapults them all to next!
Juno Dawson has a new book coming out this month too. Entitled The Gender Games and also set to be published on the 13th, it’s described as “a frank, witty and powerful manifesto for a world where what’s in your head is more important than what’s between your legs.” Juno’s past non-fiction books are fantastic as are her fiction books. Mind Your Head for example, Juno’s book about mental health, is a great read and I highly recommend it. I’m excited to see this brand new title from Juno and I’m definitely excited for it to be released.
Carrie Hope Fletcher has a new book out this month too, again also due to be released on the 13th, called All That She Can See, about a village baker named Cherry, who has a hidden ability to see things that others can’t. She uses this power to add something special to the cakes she sells, so the village people know that when they walk in Cherry’s bakery they feel safe. But then Chase arrives and it turns out she’s not alone in this ability. Carrie has an amazing writing voice and I can’t wait until her new book is published.
There are plenty more books that are set to come out in July, like the collaboration between Radio 1’s Greg James and Chris Smith along with Jenn Bennett’s brand new book too, but these are just some of the books I’m excited for in July!
