I’m going to be a little bit ambitious this month with nine books. I’m about to graduate and don’t have a full-time job—I’m going to need to find a part-time one—so I will have a bit more time on my hands for reading and blogging. Fingers crossed I get a job though and have a little bit less time soon. The first three are copies I need to read for review, the middle three are a series—so I’ll probably binge it—and the last three are new released I’m excited for.
1. Public Relations by Katie Heany and Arianna Rebolini
This book comes out this month, but I actually read it early last month when I got the ARC. Because I became so busy, I delayed writing the review and kind of forgot it. I’m gonna give it a quick re-read so I can give a fresh review. I enjoyed it so really I’m not that upset about it.
2. Maud: A Novel Inspired by the Life of L.M. Montgomery by Melanie J. Fishbane
I love Anne of Green Gables—although I’ve only watched like the movies and not read the books—and was super excited when I got this ARC. This book tells the story of the author’s teen years and how her life changes when she moves west.
3. The Refrigerator Monologues Written by Catherine M. Valente Illustrated by Annie Wu
I was sent this for review and am super excited. It sounds totally badass. From my understanding, it is a bunch of linkedstories from the points of view of the wives and girlfriends of superheroes, female heroes, and anyone who’s ever been “refrigerated,” which refers to comic book women who are killed, raped, brainwashed, driven mad, disabled, or had their powers taken so that a male superhero’s storyline will progress.
4-6. Across the Universe, A Million Suns, & Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
I have this whole series, which is one of my motivating factors for reading it. I just caught up with Throne of Glass, and just being left with that ending and having to wait for two more books, I want a series that can be binge read and finished in one shot.
7. Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
This series is so adorable—you can read my review for the first two books here and here. I hope to buy and read this this month. Jenny Han planned this as a duology at first and now it’s extended. I’m just curious to how it’s going to end. And I think there’s prom? Like Lara Jean at prom would be so cute.
8. Avenged by Amy Tintera
I loved the first book of this series Ruined—you can rad my review for it here. It was a really fresh and exciting fantasy novel. I read like one review about it and just loved the description, but hadn’t really seen it around anywhere else. I feel like there isn’t enough hype around it.
9. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
I’M SO SO READY FOR THIS BOOK. THE END OF THE ACOTAR SERIES. FEYRE AND RHYSAND, I CAN’T. I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO SAY.
