Welcome to Anticipated Reads, formerly hosted by Books Are My Thing and now hosted here at Reviews In A Pinch (check out our new graphic, courtesy of my friend Kelsey)!  The idea is that we showcase 1-3 books releasing each month (I generally can’t/won’t limit myself), letting you know what new books are coming out that we’re really excited about.

It’s a monthly meme that will be occurring the first Wednesday of every month!  Better yet, if you want to share books you’re anticipating coming out, you can link up at the bottom of each month’s post in the comments!

So, let’s check out what I’m excited about in July below:

Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine
  • Release Date:  July 11, 2017

Overview:  Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealousy guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny….

Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the Library’s rule.

Their time is running out. To survive, they’ll have to choose to live or die as one, to take the fight to their enemies—and to save the very soul of the Great Library…

 

 

 

The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey
  • Release Date:  July 11, 2017

Overview:  The sides have been chosen and the battle lines drawn.

Echo awakened the Firebird. Now she is the only one with the power to face the darkness she unwittingly unleashed . . . right into the waiting hands of Tanith, the new Dragon Prince. Tanith has one goal in mind: destroy her enemies, raze their lands, and reign supreme in a new era where the Drakharin are almighty and the Avicen are nothing but a memory.

The war that has been brewing for centuries is finally imminent. But the scales are tipped. Echo might hold the power to face the darkness within the Dragon Prince, but she has far to go to master its overwhelming force. And now she’s plagued by uncertainty. With Caius no longer by her side, she doesn’t know if she can do it alone. Is she strong enough to save her home and the people she loves?

Whether Echo is ready to face this evil is not the question. The war has begun, and there is no looking back. There are only two outcomes possible: triumph or death.

Ghosts by Nicholas Sansbury Smith
  • Release Date:  July 18, 2017

Overview:  Ten years ago Hell Diver Xavier “X” Rodriguez fell to Earth. Those he left behind went on without him aboard the airship he once called home. Michael Everheart – the boy once known as Tin – has grown into a man and the commander of Hell Diver Raptor Team.

While Michael dives to help keep the Hive in the air, Captain Leon Jordan rules with an iron fist at the helm of the ship. But unrest stirs under his strict leadership as a prophecy of hope sweeps the lower decks.

When a mysterious distress signal calls the Hell Divers to the surface, Michael and his loyal team begin to uncover long-buried truths and the secrets Captain Jordan will do anything to keep. They dive so humanity survives…but will they survive the ultimate betrayal?

 

 

Witchtown by Cory Putman Oakes
  • Release Date:  July 18, 2017

Overview:  When sixteen-year-old Macie O’Sullivan and her masterfully manipulative mother Aubra arrive at the gates of Witchtown—the most famous and mysterious witch-only haven in the world—they have one goal in mind: to rob it for all it’s worth.

But that plan derails when Macie and Aubra start to dig deeper into Witchtown’s history and uncover that there is more to the quirky haven than meets the eye.

Exploring the haven by herself, Macie finds that secrets are worth more than money in Witchtown.

Secrets have their own power.
