The Tuesday Chirp

releases we’re excited about

Looking for distraction in the dog days of summer? Look no further than these new releases.

Cover for Appleseed by Matt Bell

Appleseed, Matt Bell

Described as “[p]art speculative epic, part tech thriller, part reinvented fairy tale,” this CliFi new release has been on our radar for a while.

A Psalm for the Wild-Built, Becky Chambers

This first book in a new series by Hugo-award-winning Chambers looks quirky, big-hearted, and delightful. Centuries after robots gained sentience and “wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again,” a robot returns to check in and ask the humans what they need.

Cover for Ghost Forest by Pik-Shuen Fung

Ghost Forest, Pik-Shuen Fung

An exploration of sorrow, intergenerational dynamics, and family. This one looks gorgeous.

Cover for Embassy Wife by Katie Crouch

Embassy Wife, Katie Crouch


A- look at that cover, and B- the summary for this one casually mentions such plot points as secret CIA operatives, international conflict, and governmental drama. All told through the lens of two wives serving alongside their emissary husbands.

Cover for Such A Quiet Place by Megan Miranda

Such A Quiet Place, Megan Miranda

A locked-room whodunnit, but with an interesting twist on the genre: after a murder in a quiet neighborhood, the residents find that they can’t sell their homes. This means that they’re stuck when the suspected murderer returns and once again becomes their neighbor.
