The Gifts That Bind Us by Caroline O’Donoghue (All Our Hidden Gifts #2) – June 7

Beautifully written and just the right amount witchy, The Drowning Summer is a deliciously eerie story perfect for reading under a full moon

Maeve and her friends have revealed their powers and banded together as a coven: Roe can pick locks, Lily sends sparks flying, Maeve can read minds and Fiona can heal any injury.

The Honeys by Ryan La Sala – TBD 2022

From Ryan La Sala, the wildly popular author of Reverie, comes a twisted and tantalizing horror idst the bucolic splendor of a secluded summer retreat.

Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow to his sister Caroline’s radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who’d grown tragically distant.

Mars’s genderfluidity means he’s often excluded from the traditions – and expectations – of his politically-connected family.
