Christmas came early this year will all of the amazing books being released this month. With so many to choose from.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite picks. Click the link below for a larger collection of titles.

Hottest June Titles

Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E.L. James

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny the powerful draw of the Fifty Shades series. True fanatics and critics alike are already lining up to devour this one. Make sure you purchase multiple copies to meet demand.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

Think Neil Gaiman Meets Joe Hill with an unforgettable cast of characters and propelled by a plot that will shock you again and again. With Starred Reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Library Journal – you know this one will be wildly popular.

The Seven Good Years: A Memoir by Etgar Keret

Keret’s first nonfiction book to be published in America is as hilarious as it is moving and life-affirming. The audiobook is read by Alex Karpovsky. That’s right. Mr. Ray Ploshansky from Girls. I laughed out loud listening to this one and I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a more perfect author – narrator match.

Freedom’s Child by Jax Miller

I actually cancelled plans with someone so I could finish this book. The protagonist of this story is being compared to Lisbeth Salander and Amy Dunne – I liked her better than both. This would be a perfect book club pick and should appeal to a wide audience.

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

I read this one in a couple hours; cracking up while learning interesting facts and stats on the state of modern relationships. Celebrity memoirs are huge right now so be sure to add lots of copies of this one to your collection.

The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler

In the tradition of Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants, Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, comes a moving debut novel about the power of books, family, and magic. Who doesn’t love books, family, and magic! This one is on top of my ‘TBR’ pile.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I’d also like to say that I miss the “recently returned” category on the website. I always find interesting reads there, too.
