I totally fell off the wagon with these posts after the first one for January and February! Honestly, this year there haven’t been as many books that I am super pumped about. I was really excited for BEA and BookCon posts from the bloggers and booktubers lucky enough to go, but even they admitted there were less hyped books this year than in the past.
Lock Every Door by Riley Sager
I was extremely lucky enough to receive an ARC of this title on NetGalley (thank you again, Dutton Books!), but it is still on my most anticipated list because I can’t wait for everyone to read this so I can talk about it!
The Toll by Cherie Priest
I have a Cherie Priest book on my shelf that I started last October/November, but I had burnt myself out on thrillers during October, so I ended up DNFing it. It was not bad, I just wasn’t in the right mood for it. The Toll is a gothic horror that takes place in a swamp in Florida. A young couple is on their honeymoon and one of them goes missing on a bridge that, according to police, doesn’t exist.
A Stranger on the Beach by Michelle Campbell
I saw alot of posts and videos about this book back in the spring, but I haven’t really seen any reviews on it yet. Either way, it sounded interesting and I thought the marketing package for the book was great!
The Posession by Michael Rutger
This is book two of The Anomaly Files series. The first book, The Anomaly, flew under the radar last year, and I am really hoping more people will give it a chance since a second book is coming out this year.
Sea Witch Rising by Sarah Henning
This book was not even on my radar until I fell in to a rabbit hole on Goodreads! I enjoyed Sea Witch in 2018 and am excited to revisit this world.
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
Ruth Ware is an automatic read/buy author for me. I don’t even know what this book is about, nor do I want to. I enjoy her books more when I don’t know what is coming.
The Whisper Man by Alex North
This is a title from Celadon that was not on my radar until very recently. It has The Chalk Man vibes but it sounds way creepier. Basically a father and son team up to catch a serial killer dubbed “The Whisper Man” because he lures his victims to their death by whispering at their windows at night. Sounds chilling!
What book(s) are you most excited for in July and August? Let me know in the comments!
