Happy July! This year is just flying by, isn’t it? But we know that a new month brings new books, and there are tons of great books on my radar in July! There are 85 titles on this list of July 2023 New Releases, and they comprise a range of genres – contemporary, historical, cozy mystery, suspense, Amish fiction, children’s books, speculative/fantasy, and even a nonfiction. And, of course, expect to see lots of romance because it’s me, after all 😉 All books listed are Christian or clean in content, to the best of my knowledge.

    I’m really excited for Elizabeth Maddrey’s The Billionaire’s Backup! She does the Christian friend-group books so well and really captures the life of Christian singles (well, except for having billionaires among them, but that’s part of what makes these books so good – the escape from reality).
