Books Releasing in June You Won’t Want to Miss

by | June 28

June is one of my favorite months of the year because it means that summer—the best season hands down—is in full effect. And summer brings two things that are essential to a life worth living: the heat (if you’re like me, there is no such thing as too much heat, and if you’re not like me, I really don’t get it. How can you like being cold? What is there to like??) AND all the summer reading that starts pubbing.  

I ❤️ a good summer read. I want the kind of book that’s so deliciously brain candy that you can forget (at least until you get an anxiety-causing Google Alert on your phone) that the world is kind of a crazy place right now. Luckily, June does not disappoint. At least when it comes to reading, since there are no guarantees when it comes to this crazy weather we’ve been having in New York City.

 

Sex and the City and Us

Sex and the City and Us

by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong

I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since Sex and the City first aired. The show was at peak popularity when I was in my twenties living in my cramped 4th floor walk-up East Village apartment with two roommates. I used to imagine what life would be like if I was running the streets with Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda. I could have been their African American BFF, except I would have been the one wearing tights in the winter because I don’t care how cool it looked, walking bare legged in Manhattan in the winter is insanity. 

Sex and the City and Us gives a behind-the-scenes look at the TV series that revolutionized the way women and their sex lives were portrayed in the media. The book features exclusive new interviews with the cast and writers, including star Sarah Jessica Parker, creator Darren Star, executive producer Michael Patrick King, and author Candace Bushnell (Sex and the City). It only makes sense to crack open this book while drinking a shockingly pink Cosmopolitan.

by Lauren Weisberger

***NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*** Best Books of Summer 2018 Selection by Entertainment Weekly * Cosmopolitan * Harper's Bazaar * Redbook * Southern Living * Good Housekeeping * PureWow * PopSugar * Bustle * Entertainment Tonight * Star Magazine * St. Louis Post-Dispatch * Columbus Dispatch * Tampa Bay Times * BookTrib * HE SET HER UP. THEY’LL BRING HIM DOWN.Welcome to Greenwich, Connecticut, where the lawns and the women are perfectly manicured, the Tito’s and sodas are extra strong, and everyone has something to say about the infamous new neighbor. Let’s be clear: Emily Charlton does not do the suburbs. After leaving Miranda Priestly, she’s been working in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars, but recently, Emily’s lost a few clients. She’s hopeless with social media. The new guard is nipping at her heels. She needs a big opportunity, and she needs it now. When Karolina Hartwell, a gorgeous former supermodel, is arrested for a DUI, her fall from grace is merciless. Her senator-husband leaves her, her Beltway friends disappear, and the tabloids pounce. In Karolina, Emily finds her comeback opportunity. But she quickly learns Greenwich is a world apart and that this comeback needs a team approach. So it is that Emily, the scorned Karolina, and their mutual friend Miriam, a powerful attorney turned stay-at-home suburban mom, band together to not only navigate the social land mines of suburban Greenwich but win back the hearts of the American public. Along the way, an indispensable ally emerges in one Miranda Priestly. With her signature wit, Lauren Weisberger offers an alluring look into a sexy, over-the-top world—and proves it’s style and substance together that gets the job done.

Lying in Wait

Lying in Wait

by Liz Nugent

My name is Sienna Farris and I’m addicted to psychological thrillers. If they are dark, twisted, and involve crazy family members, then even better. I’m a big fan of Irish author Liz Nugent. She wrote a book I can’t stop thinking about called Unraveling Oliver. She has a new book coming out that I am so excited about, called Lying in Wait. People, the first line of the book is: 

My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it. 

If you love the novelist Ruth Ware, love unreliable narrators, and love to keep guessing, you will love this book!
