It is hard to believe that I am writing another new book releases post! June flew by, and I know July will be no different.
There are a ton of thrillers releasing in July, so of course I’m super excited for these new releases! Oddly, Book of the Month picked none of these books, but I am still happy to share my referral link with you anyway! Many of the July Book of the Month picks are actually early releases from August, so it may be a good time to pick up something from your August TBR.

I can’t even form a synopsis for this book because the blurb doesn’t give much. But this sounds like You except set in a prestigious prep school instead of a bookstore.

I never look into a thriller synopsis too much, so if you are interested in a fully synopsis, you can click the link above to read it. From what I have read, this sounds like a domestic thriller from three wives’ POVs and will be full of rich people drama as all three women live in huge mansions in an exclusive neighborhood in California. I’m sure this will be a twisty summer thriller perfect for the beach!
