Hi everyone! Another month is here which means new books are coming out!! This month, I’ve broken my list up into some YA and Adult books that I’m highly anticipating this month.
Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson
This new release appeals to me because it sounds like a fresh plotline that I haven’t really heard before. A girl wakes up, after being asleep for over a thousand years, to find she’s on a new planet, her family and friends are long dead, and everyone around her is calling her a goddess. What?! Tell me that’s not nuts! This book will hit the shelves on June 30th.
I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick
A YA psychological thriller? Yup. I’m in. Anna Cicconi goes to the Hamptons looking for a fresh start. Guess what she doesn’t get?

That’s when a local crime podcast host steps in to figure out what really happened to Zoe Spanos. This book is scheduled to be released on June 30th.
