June 2015 Most Anticipated Releases

Monday, 1 June 2015

It's that time to look at what books are coming out in the month ahead!

Here are my picks for June 2015:

Title: The Devil You Know
Author: Trish Doller
Release Date: June 2nd

Eighteen-year-old Arcadia wants adventure. Living in a tiny Florida town with her dad and four-year-old brother, Cadie spends most of her time working, going to school, and taking care of her family. So when she meets two handsome cousins at a campfire party, she finally has a chance for fun. They invite her and friend to join them on a road trip, and it's just the risk she's been craving-the opportunity to escape. But what starts out as a fun, sexy journey quickly becomes dangerous when she discovers that one of them is not at all who he claims to be. One of them has deadly intentions.

A road trip fling turns terrifying in this contemporary story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Title: Proof of Forever
Author: Lexa Hillyer
Release Date: June 2nd

BEFORE: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.

AFTER: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.

THEN: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.

NOW: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.

ALWAYS: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.

Title: Even When You Lie to Me
Author: Jessica Alcott
Release Date: June 9th

Charlie, a senior, isn't looking forward to her last year of high school. Another year of living in the shadow of her best friend, Lila. Another year of hiding behind the covers of her favorite novels. Another year of navigating her tense relationship with her perfectionist mom.

But everything changes when she meets her new English teacher. Mr. Drummond is smart. Irreverent. Funny. Hot. Everyone loves him. And Charlie thinks he's the only one who gets her.

She also thinks she might not be the only one with a crush.

In this stunning debut, Jessica Alcott explores relationships-and their boundaries-in a way that is both searingly honest and sympathetic.

Title: Every Last Word
Author: Tamara Ireland Stone
Release Date: June 16th

If you could read my mind, you wouldn't be smiling.

Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off.

Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn't help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she'd be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam's weekly visits to her psychiatrist.

Caroline introduces Sam to Poet's Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more "normal" than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

Title: The Night We Said Yes
Author: Lauren Gibaldi
Release Date: June 16th

Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over a no-good ex-boyfriend. Graduate from high school without any more distractions. Move away from Orlando, Florida, where she’s lived her entire life.

But Matt—the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player who just moved to town—was never part of that plan.

And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying “yes” to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.

Then Matt abruptly left town, and he broke not only Ella’s heart but those of their best friends, too. So when he shows up a year later with a plan of his own—to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn’t sure whether Matt’s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.

In alternating then and now chapters, debut author Lauren Gibaldi crafts a charming, romantic story of first loves, lifelong friendships, uncovered secrets, and, ultimately, finding out how to be brave.

What release are you most anticipating?


  1. I'm looking forward to Even when You Lie to Me, hope you get these!

    1. I love the sound of that one. I hope you enjoy it! :)

  2. All of these look really good! I'm pretty sure they are already on my Goodreads :)
    I'm super excited for Every Last Word, because I've read books by Tamara Ireland Stone before and really enjoyed them.
    Great list!

    1. Ohh I haven't read any of Tamara's other books so I'll have to check them out! Hope we both enjoy this one! :)

  3. I am also looking forward to Proof of Forever. I didn't realize that it came out June 2! I may have to go pick that up tomorrow :)

    1. It sounds so good! Hope you manage to get a copy :)

  4. Every Last Word sounds really good, but contemporary romance isn't really my favourite genre! I couldn't find many fantasy books for June! :)

    1. There definitely seems to be a lack of fantasy this month! I'm guessing it's because it's summer and people like contemporaries in summer. I like some good fantasy all year round though! :)

  5. Great selections! I'm especially excited for Even When You Lie to Me since I'm a sucker for forbidden romance.

    1. I love a good forbidden romance too! I'm excited to read this one :)
