Other Books Coming Out This Week:

What DON'T I want to read this week would be the question???  I already read (and loved) With Malice.  I also liked The Leaving and You Know Me Well.  I'm read 738 Days right now (and loving it) and I GOTS to read American Girls, My Lady Jane, Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies, and Frayed.  Also, I love a friendship book, so How It Ends is a yes... and I haven't read a gymnastic book since forever so Tumbling is on my radar also.  What are you adding to your Summer Reading List from this giant list?

  1. So many intriguing books coming out this week. I don't know which or any of these I'll be reading. But I definitely want to check out With Malice and All the Feels!

    1. All the Feels does look cool...and YES I SO recommend With Malice!! It's so good!

  2. I read and loved The Long Game and The Marked Girl, but quite a few of these I'd never heard of! *heads to Goodreads*

    1. The Marked Girl sounds pretty cool. I don't read a lot of books like that, but I'm trying to find good ones to start with!!

  3. I'm pretty much obsessed with all of the above (mainly Doreen, Tumbling & How It Ends!) I have an E-ARC of American Girls, so I'm excited to get to that. Definitely adding Goldfish to my TBR!

  4. Wow great round up of this weeks releases! I really want to read My Lady Jane, American Girls and All The Feels. Tumbling also sounds good I'd never heard of it before
