Recent and Upcoming Book Releases

Recent and Upcoming Book Releases – July

Scribner UK, July 2019

The books based around summer settings are making their appearance and there is something so nice about sitting in the garden with one of these books. It really helps with the happy vibes.

I wanted to share some of the upcoming or recently released books that I am looking forward to reading at some point.

Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips is a novel that I am finding very intriguing.

The general premise is that two sisters are abducted one august afternoon on the shoreline of the north-eastern edge of Russia.

The ensuing weeks and months bring a stalled police investigation and reverberates across a tightly woven community.

This book does sound so good and I can’t wait to read it.


The second book is the latest one by Catherine Alliott called A Cornish Summer.

I am a bit of a fan of Catherine’s novels and so am always pleased when another one arrives.

This new book focuses on Flora who has been in love with her husband for twenty years. However, he’s been married to someone else for fifteen years.

Flora has been invited to spend the summer in Cornwall. It should sound blissful….. except for one small thing. Her former mother-in-law has also been invited. If that wasn’t enough, Flora’s ex husband and his wife are coming too.

Can she spend the summer playing happy families?


The Bookshop on the Shore is the latest book by the fantastic Jenny Colgan

Zoe is struggling to cope living in London as a single mother. Her son is perfect in every way. He just doesn’t speak.

When her landlord raises the rent on her flat, she doesn’t know what she is going to do. Zoe is then given the opportunity to help run a bookshop in the Scottish highlands. On first thought, she feels that this might be the change she needs.

She’s soon questioning her move and whether she made the right decision. She’s faced with an unwelcoming boss, a moody, distant bookseller and a band of unruly children.

Her son finds his first friend though and with the beauty of the area, Zoe only wishes the bookseller was a friendlier and more approachable.
