New Books to Read for Each Month of the Year – Part 2

We’re halfway through the year so it’s time for a reading list refresh! With summer reading well underway, it’s the perfect time to check out some of the new and exciting books coming out in the second half of the year. But with so many new books coming out, how can you possibly choose which ones to read next? And what if you still haven’t finished your TBR pile from the first half of the year?

Never fear! We’ve come up with a completely manageable approach to read new books in 2024 without getting overwhelmed: just pick one book for each month! See below for our recommended new books to read for each month of the year. You might even rope in a friend or two to start a book club to read these titles together throughout the year.

This list is part two. If you missed part one, you can find it here.
