Books being released on 30th June 2022 that I want to read

I went on to order some books for the shop and came across some books due to be published on 30th June that not only have I pre-ordered for the shop but I've added to my 'must read' list. It is constantly growing because there are just so many fantastic books being published every month. I know I won't be able to afford to buy them all for myself but they will go on my list and I tend to randomly select from the list every time I can afford one. 

I thought I would share with you these two that have caught my eye, they sound fantastic and I can't wait to get hold of them. 

The Fair Botanists : Could one rare plant hold the key to a thousand riches?

by Sara Sheridan

Due for release on 30th June 2022 

When newly widowed Elizabeth arrives in Edinburgh to live with her late husband's aunt Clementina, she's determined to put her unhappy past in London behind her. As she settles into her new home, she becomes fascinated by the beautiful Botanic Garden which borders the grand house and offers her services as an artist to record the rare plant's impending bloom. In this pursuit, she meets Belle Brodie, a vivacious young woman with a passion for botany and the lucrative, dark art of perfume creation.

An Immense World : How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us

by Ed Yong

Due for release on 30th June 2022 

The Earth teems with sights and textures, sounds and vibrations, smells and tastes, electric and magnetic fields. But every animal is enclosed within its own unique sensory bubble, perceiving only a tiny sliver of an immense world. This book welcomes us into previously unfathomable dimensions - the world as it is truly perceived by other animals. We encounter beetles that are drawn to fires, turtles that can track the Earth's magnetic fields, fish that fill rivers with electrical messages, and humans that wield sonar like bats. We discover that a crocodile's scaly face is as sensitive as a lover's fingertips, that plants thrum with the inaudible songs of courting bugs, and that even simple scallops have complex vision. We learn what bees see in flowers, what songbirds hear in their tunes, and what dogs smell on the street. We listen to stories of pivotal discoveries in the field, while looking ahead at the many mysteries which lie unsolved.

Not only do both books sound great, they also have beautiful covers! 

If they sound good to you too, you can purchase / pre-order these books here:
