The Tuesday Chirp

releases we’re excited about

Welcome, June! Today we’re celebrating a new month and PLENTY of new releases. We’re featuring highly anticipated new books from much-loved authors, as well as debuts and retellings of beloved stories. If the rest of June is anything like today, we have a lot of delicious reading to do.

The Chosen and the Beautiful, Nghi Vo

A retelling of The Great Gatsby from Jordan Baker’s perspective. One twist. Other twists? Jordan is Vietnamese and queer. More twists? There’s MAGIC.

Cover for One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

One Last Stop, Casey McQuiston

Brand-new from McQuiston, who penned the much-loved Red, White, & Royal Blue! This one looks just as swoon-worthy, fresh, and adorable.

Cover for Golden Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Golden Girl, Elin Hilderbrand

Hilderbrand’s 25th novel combines her trademark summer escapism with a life-beyond-the-grave mystery/drama.

You don’t need to have read Hilderbrand’s other books to enjoy this one, but if you want a Hilderbrand guide, try this and this.


Cover for Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Malibu Rising, Taylor Jenkins Reid

The follow-up to Jenkins Reid’s 2019 Daisy Jones & The Six and the final book in the “California trilogy” (The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoDaisy Jones, and Malibu Rising) looks to have the same strong sense of place and voice, and it takes place over just one day.

Cover for Seven Days in June by Tia Williams

Seven Days in June, Tia Williams

Two authors re-meet in NYC fifteen years after a weeklong love affair, and come to terms with the fact that “they’ve been secretly writing to each other in their books through the years.” (!)  

Cover for For the Wolf, by Hannah Whitten

For the Wolf, Hannah Whitten

This debut is a magic-strewn retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  We here at The Birdseed LOVE fairytale retellings, so this is right up our alley.

Cover for Palace of the Drowned by Christine Mangan

Palace of the Drowned, Christine Mangan

In this “elegiac thriller” set in 1966 Venice, an author confronting her anxiety about being a one-hit-wonder escapes to Venice, where she meets an admirer who is not what she seems.  

new in paperback

Owls of the Eastern Ice, Jonathan C. Slaght

This part-adventure, part-conservationist’s-cry, part-field-notes has a long list of awards (and a cute cover-owl).

Florence Adler Swims Forever, Rachel Beanland

A tale of family secrets, tenuous relationships, and swimming the English Channel.

The Space Between Worlds, Micaiah Johnson

A multiverse, plenty of twists, and commentary on social inequities, this looks to be SciFi at its best.
