Hello and happy June, book nerds! We have lots o’ hot book covers coming out this summer, and this is just the beginning. Make sure you get your hands on these beauts for your best summer reading!
We’re not suggesting you judge books by their covers, but…You should totally judge these ones. In a good way. I’ve included comments on the books I’ve already read and loved, too!
