I can't believe that I am officially over halfway done with this volume of Precommendations! This series has been so much fun to do, and I am so glad I started it back in January. If you have any ideas for new series, please let me know in the comments on what types of posts you would like to see from me.
There really aren't very many YA books coming out in July, so this issue of Precommendations is kind of short. If I missed any of your most anticipated reads, let me know in the comments as well!
surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?
Compare to: All the Bright Places, by: jennifer Niven
This book sounds like it has some All the Bright Places vibes going on with it, which is another book I really enjoyed. Two kids with nothing in common one day become great friends. I really like that this book takes that idea and applies this new friendship to something very personal to one side of the relationship. I think something very thought-provoking and meaningful will come out of this book, and I can't wait to see what it is!
navigate secret romances, thorny relationships, and the London Tube. As Sydney zigzags through Amsterdam, Switzerland, Italy, and France, she must learn when to hold on, when to keep moving, and when to jump into the Riviera… wearing only her polka dot underpants.
Compare to: Anna and the French Kiss, by: Stephanie Perkins
This book sounds like the perfect one to accompany you on your vacation this summer. Whether you are just going down the road or across the world, a book about travel is perfect for this time of year. I love to read books that are set in new places, especially in Europe. It's on my bucket list to do exactly what Sydney plans on doing, and this book seems to me like it's one step closer to accomplishing that. With that being said, I also think it will be interesting to see how Sydney handles all of the hurdles that come with traveling and being away from her mother.
Compare to: Windfall, by: Jennifer E. Smith
It just so happens that I finished Windfall not too long ago, and this book follows the same kind of plot line. I love Kasie West's writing, and I've been meaning to read another book by her, so seeing how her characters handle winning the lottery will be neat to follow. I have a feeling this version of teenage lottery winning will be a little more romantic than Windfall, so I am very excited to see how this story unfolds.
There you have it, folks, my most anticipated reads for July! If you are looking forward to a book I didn't include in this list, please let me know in the comments so I can check it out as well!

It doesn't matter. I have books, new books, and I can bear anything as long as there are books.
