10 LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER RELEASES I HAVE PREORDERED

The humidity level is cranking up in Kentucky, and while I know the dog days of summer are ahead, I look forward to doing some great summer reading in 2021. While reading backlist books is my jam a lot of the time, I have quite a few summer releases I am super stoked for this year that I have preordered (or plan to preorder very soon), so I thought I would share that list with you!
