Although spring is rolling into summer, many of us are still cooped up at home practicing safe social distancing. Fortunately, there is a fresh crop of books being released this month that are perfectly suited to whip you away into a different time, world or both.
ICYMI, we’re teaming up with the literary experts at Goodreads to bring you each month’s most anticipated book releases. This month, if you’re looking for a fantastical escape, you should consider the Hunger Games trilogy prequel, “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” by Suzanne Collins, or “Shakespeare for Squirrels” by Christopher Moore. If you’re looking for more of a historical journey, check out “The Library of Legends” by Janie Chang or “The Paris Hours” by Alex George. Simply want to step into someone else’s shoes? There are two exceptional memoirs out this month: “Hollywood Park” by Mikel Jollett and “The Hilarious World of Depression” by John Moe.
If you are stuck at home, now is the perfect time to fire up that Kindle and dive into a new world. And although you could find all of the books below on Amazon, you could also consider supporting your local bookstores instead. If you live in an area with pick-up and delivery options for small businesses, it might be worth calling up your local independent bookshop to see what options it has.
