June 2013 releases to look forward to! (Part 2)

Several days ago I already informed you of some of the fabulous June releases that are coming up, but it's true... There's more! Be sure to add these lovely novels to your to-read list if you don't want to miss out! 

Lauren Weisberger - 'Revenge of Prada: The Devil Returns' (4th/20th of June 2013)

Everything’s in place for the season’s hottest launch:

Tall latte (with two raw sugars)? Check.

Gucci trench (draped over desk)? Check.

Outrageous, unreasonable demands? Check.

Andy has just turned thirty and is an incredibly successful magazine editor, working closely with her best friend Emily, another Runway survivor. She’s about to get married – life’s on track and she’s been careful to stay clear of Miranda Priestly, her dreadful first boss. But Andy’s luck is running out. Miranda Priestly isn’t the kind of woman who hides in the background.

She’s back… and more devilish than ever.

Why so excited? --> I have to admit, I'm not too keen on the covers of Lauren Weisberger's sequel to 'The Devil Wears Prada', but I am dead excited about the fact that there is actually going to be a sequel! I loved the first book and film, and I can't wait to read more about Andy and Miranda and all the outrageous, unreasonable demands... This is going to be great, I can feel it!

Victoria Fox - 'Wicked Ambition' (7th of June 2013)

If not victory, revenge!

Some will do anything for fame. Others will do anything to bring the famous down.

Three superstars. Three secrets.

For Robin, Turquoise and Kristin, the spotlight shines brightly. They ve reached the glittering heights of stardom, and are adored the world over. But in the shadows lies the truth... An exposé could be their end. Because not everyone is happy about their success. Not everyone wants the best for them. Some people want to reveal the real stories behind the luxury parties and gorgeous men, and bring their dazzling worlds crashing to the ground.

Who will fall first?

Why so excited? --> I haven't read Victoria Fox's novel 'Temptation Island', but I've heard that if you're looking for a bit of glamour and scandal, you've found the right author! The blurb and the cover already fit these two keywords perfectly, and I have to be honest: I'm definitely intrigued!

Sally Koslow - 'The Widow Waltz' (13th of June 2013)

Georgia Waltz has things many people only dream of: a plush Manhattan apartment overlooking Central Park, a Hamptons beach house, valuable jewels and art, two bright daughters, and a husband she adores, even after decades of marriage. It’s only when Ben suddenly drops dead from a massive coronary while training for the New York City Marathon that Georgia discovers her husband—a successful lawyer—has left them nearly penniless. Their wonderland was built on lies.
As the family attorney scours emptied bank accounts, Georgia must not only look for a way to support her family, she needs to face the revelation that Ben was not the perfect husband he appeared to be, just as her daughters—now ensconced back at home with secrets of their own—have to accept that they may not be returning to their lives in Paris and at Stanford subsidized by the Bank of Mom and Dad. As she uncovers hidden resilience, Georgia’s sudden midlife shift forces her to consider who she is and what she truly values. That Georgia may also find new love in the land of Spanx and stretch marks surprises everyone—most of all, her.

Why so excited? --> 'The Widow Waltz' doesn't fit the picture of a happy chick lit novel, but I am definitely drawn towards this book. The blurb promises a dramatic tale with a twist of hope, and the cover fits this idea perfectly, in my opinion. I'm really curious about this one and can't wait to find out more about Georgia and her struggles.

Allie Spencer - 'Save the Date' (20th of June 2013)

Family weddings can be hell.

...and, marooned in Italy for her cousin's nuptials, Ailsa can be forgiven for thinking that this one is worse than most. With the bride and groom at loggerheads and the guests in uproar, it is a million miles away from the rest and relaxation she'd been hoping for.

And then suddenly, in the middle of the mayhem, she comes face-to-face with Nick, the man she walked out on just a few months earlier.

How can Ailsa help get the wedding back on track when she and Nick can't stop arguing? But if they do, she might remember why she fell in love with him in the first place - and then there really would be trouble.

Why so excited? --> I've heard lots of exciting and lovely things about 'Save the Date' already and I can't wait for its release! The cover is simply stunning and the story sounds great... A wedding, a good love-story... Count me in!

Sheila O'Flanagan - 'The Things We Never Say' (20th of June 2013)

Abbey Andersen is the last person to go looking for change. Yes, it's tough that she barely sees her mother these days - but in San Francisco she has great friends, a steady relationship and a job she enjoys. When Abbey is contacted by Irish lawyer Ryan Gilligan she learns in an instant everything she believed about her roots is a lie. She must travel to Dublin to find out more - but she's scarcely off the plane when she's plunged into a new crisis. One that will change everything not just for Abbey but for the family in Ireland who had no idea that she even existed. Now Abbey has to make a choice that will affect everyone she knows. How can she be sure she makes the right one? And can life ever be quite the same again?

Why so excited? --> I love Sheila O'Flanagan; her novels are always guaranteed great reads, I think, and so it's no surprise I am really looking forward to reading 'The Things We Never Say'! The blurb sounds really interesting, and I can't wait to read Abbey's story!


  1. Think the sweet little doggy on the cover of Widow Waltz has sold me! :)
