The first of June is here, and you know what that means: a new month for book releases!
What does the first month of summer have in store for us? Plenty, but these are the books I’m most interested in, and I hope you are, too!
I don’t normally gravitate to anthologies, but I shrieked with delight when I saw this one. Compiled by We Need Diverse Books, A Thousand Beginnings and Endings is a collection of mythology, fairy tale, and folklore stories by East and South Asian authors such as Roshani Chokshi, Cindy Pon, Julie Kagawa, and E. C. Myers. (Can I get an #OwnVoices, ya’ll?)
Being a Westerner myself, I recognize that Western storytelling has its own structure that gets tiring and predictable; Eastern storytelling structure is so different and refreshing by comparison. Can’t wait to read about all these trickster immortals, starcrossed lovers, and battles of wits.
Release date: June 26th
