Horse by Geraldine Brooks (June 14)

Lapvona by Otessa Moshfegh (June 21)

The Angel of Rome by Jess Walter (June 28)

Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin (July5) In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J.

Upgrade by Blake Crouch (July 12)

The It Girl by Ruth Ware (July 12)
