Release Date: July 18th 2017
This book had me as soon as I read Indian folklore in the synopsis. Also, it has a really pretty cover. I’m not gonna lie, that definitely helped to convince me! There’s something called Library of All Things in this book when people can reverse their fates and that sounds so brilliant and I NEED THIS BOOK NOW.
Release Date: May 30th 2017
Two indian-american teens, an arrenged marriage and a summer program for aspiring web developers. This sounds so cool! I already know what I’m gonna be reading in summer 2017, because we all know summer is for contemporaries and this sounds like the perfect contemporary to read in a really hot day. I mean look at the cover she’s drinking some kind of perfect summer drink.
Release Date: February 28th 2017
This book is inspired in the Black Lives Matter movement, so off course I have to read it! Thsi is one of those books that you know it’s gonna be important and powerful even before you read it. Also, such an amazing cover and it’s being made into a movie and the main character is gonna be played by Amanda Stenberg from The Hunger Games.
Release Date: February 14th 2017
Let’s start by the obvious, this is the most gorgeous cover ever! This book has LGBTQ+ characters and I have heard that it handdles it really well. I read Nina Lacour’s other book Everything Leads to You and I really liked it, so I can’t wait to read this one!
Release Date: February 7th 2017
This sounds great! I love book where royals are trying to claim the throne. Also, there’s a fugitive and a madman, and that sounds so cool. I was part of a twitter chat with the author and she is really nice and there was a lot of talk during the chat about the diversity on this book, because it has an asian main character, which I’m really excited about.
Release Date: May 16th 2017
This book is about a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies and that sounds so cool. But even better it turns out that there’s two spies trying to make a girl fall in love with them, but instead of that, they develop feelings for each other. I CAN’T WAIT!
