June 2023 | New Releases
Late...again. More than halfway through the month and here I am, releasing my monthly list of anticipated reads. This month though, there are not actually that many new books that have caught my attention. Originally I had only three books on here until I did some more digging and browsed through Rob J. Hayes list of SFF indie releases and found a few more. Still, though, June doesn't seem to be the biggest month for new releases.
Without further ado though, here are the June 2023 releases that are on my radar!
