Four New Releases to Celebrate July 4th
There are many ways to celebrate our country’s Independence Day. You can spend it watching Saving Private Ryan and Pearl Harbor, or grilling and watching fireworks with family and friends, or counting how many choppy renditions of the Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful you hear. (Someone please count, I always lose track or lose my mind.) But today we’re celebrating with four novels that are set to release this month.
I normally spend July 4th with my family poolside. Anytime I’m near a body of water, it calls for a good read. Below you’ll find four new novels I’m particularly excited for this month. As always, click the photo for a full summary.
