I know I say this every month, but I really don’t know where June has gone. This means it’s time for a look at July’s new releases grabbing my attention. I’ve already read and loved Ink Blood Sister Scribe, which gets its print release this month and I’m particularly looking forward to The Seven Year Slip, The Mystery at Dunvegan Castle, The Jasad Heir and Silver Nitrate.

As always, dates mostly refer to UK print editions, and so books may already be out in different formats or territories. Links go to Goodreads and * indicates Iโ€™ve received a review copy from the publisher.
