The Best Book Releases: June 13

June 13, 2023


The best new book releases: June 13 are here! This week, much like last week’s releases, have great new releases in all genres. Below are my most anticipated books releasing today!

Elsie Hannaway is a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics, a fake girlfriend, and a convulsive people-pleaser. When Elsie couldn’t land a paying job, she got creative and began fake-dating to pay off her student loans. Barely able to keep her head above water, she lives with her roommate CeCe and spends most of her time teaching and doing everything that goes along with it.


Elsie isn’t good at saying “no” to people and molds herself to fit in with those around her. During her fake-dating gig, Elsie runs into her arch-nemesis, Jack Smith. Jack is the brother of one of her fake-dating clients and is the man in charge of the physics department at MIT. Elsie’s future lies in his hands. While she can’t stand Jack, she also won’t back down from her dream. Will Elsie get on Jack’s good side and land her dream job? Only time will tell.

Fate turns Hollis Shaw’s life upside down when her husband dies in a car accident after a heated argument. As she is trying to pick up the pieces of her strained marriage and the complex relationship with her daughter, Hollis hears of the “Five-Star Weekend,” which is a trip that a woman organizes for her best friend from each phase of her life, ranging from teenage years to mid-life.


Hollis’ Five Star Weekend takes a surprising turn when she reunites with old friends and flames. The Five Star Weekend by Elin Hilderbrand is a story of friendship, love, and self-discovery.

In 1956, nineteen-year-old Marion was selected as the newest Rockette at Radio City Music Hall. While this has always been a dream of hers, and as she adjusts to the demands of her new lifestyle, one night at a performance changes everything for Marion.


After a bomb detonated in Radio City Music Hall, Marion considers her own life and the choices she has made and must make a challenging decision, knowing she could put those she cares for the most at risk. Her connections can be dangerous, and as she continues her investigation, Marion faces her most challenging decisions.

Computer software sometimes fails, which happened when it paired Tayla Murphy with her ex-fiance. Knowing it was a mistake, Tayla is determined to get her money back from the match.


Set to win her back, Simon convinces Tayla to date him for a month to determine that the software is faulty. During this time, they realize how much each has changed and how well she matches her old love.

Alice King is a teacher who prefers her daring adventures to be through literature and not in her actual life. Lily Nichols is a mathematician and mother of two who will do whatever is necessary to keep her children safe as war is impending.


The Last Lifeboat is inspired by a story in 1940 England, following two strangers and how they quickly become one another’s best hope of survival as their lives entangle.
