AJ Um, don’t you mean hit the shelves last week...? 💤
An interesting list yes. I was so excited for a few of these. Finished The Only Good Indians, haven’t finished Blacktop Wasteland and not sure if I can. Read What You Wish For because it’s something I’d typically never read, and have heard excellent things about Utopia Avenue. I’d say the next big rush of new releases is on July 28th, there are some great titles coming out on that day as well as the following weeks.
