Anticipated Book Releases of March 2019

Anticipated Book Releases March 2018

Hi everyone! Today I’m talking about books coming out in March 2019 that I’m really excited about and that I can’t wait to read!

The Fever KingThe Fever King by Victoria Lee

Release date: March 1st 2019

In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the sole survivor of the viral magic that killed his family and made him a technopath. His ability to control technology attracts the attention of the minister of defense and thrusts him into the magical elite of the nation of Carolinia.

The son of undocumented immigrants, Noam has spent his life fighting for the rights of refugees fleeing magical outbreaks—refugees Carolinia routinely deports with vicious efficiency. Sensing a way to make change, Noam accepts the minister’s offer to teach him the science behind his magic, secretly planning to use it against the government. But then he meets the minister’s son—cruel, dangerous, and achingly beautiful—and the way forward becomes less clear. Caught between his purpose and his heart, Noam must decide who he can trust and how far he’s willing to go in pursuit of the greater good.

Why I’m anticipating it? Honestly, I can’t wait to read this one because I have heard Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams talk about it non stop. Also, the main character is a Latino bisexual teen, which makes me even more excited to read it!

Graham's DelicaciesGraham’s Delicacies by Em Ali

Release date: March 5th 2019

Saccharine: Jen goes to work, agonizes over college, and looks forward to the stolen moments in the kitchen. There she can watch Emilie bake love into every morsel. Their delicate friendship takes a step towards a budding romance, but will Jen’s anxiety help them survive their first hurdle?

Delectable: James has never been kissed but he wants to be. Especially by his co-worker Sam, who he can’t talk to without turning into a little jerk. Sam is made of all the good stuff, but will James’ deepest insecurities allow him to kiss the boy?

Ravenous: Alex won’t let some foodie with a video camera bash their beloved bakery, even if it means to be petty. Except they’re nowhere ready for Yujin, the one who got away and is now romancing them. Will Alex’s pride let them see the gold heart the bashful king hides?

Why I’m anticipating it? After reading and loving Soft on Soft by Em Ali, I’m so happy to be part of the blog tour for Graham’s Delicacies. This is a collection of three short stories that are full of diversity. There’s Black, nonbinary, bisexual, fat, gay, Latinx, Korean and anxiety rep.

Dealing in DreamsDealing in Dreams by Lilliam Rivera

Release date: March 5th 2019

At night, Las Mal Criadas own these streets.

Nalah leads the fiercest all-girl crew in Mega City. That roles brings with it violent throw downs and access to the hottest boydega clubs, but the sixteen-year-old grows weary of the life. Her dream is to get off the streets and make a home in the exclusive Mega Towers, in which only a chosen few get to live. To make it to the Mega towers, Nalah must prove her loyalty to the city’s benevolent founder and cross the border in a search for a mysterious gang the Ashé Ryders. Led by a reluctant guide, Nalah battles other crews and her own doubts, but the closer she gets to her goal, the more she loses sight of everything—and everyone— she cares about.

Nalah must do the unspeakable to get what she wants—a place to call home. But is a home just where you live? Or who you choose to protect?

Why I’m anticipating it? This was on of the first 2019 releases that I added to my tbr, this is a dystopian written by a latinx author, about latinx characters and with a Mad Max vibe…. what else could I ask for?!!

As Mae pushes Hugo to explore his dreams for his future, he’ll encourage her to channel a new, vulnerable side of her art. But when life off the train threatens the bubble they’ve created for themselves, will they manage to keep their love on track?

Why I’m anticipating it? Honestly, tihis just sounds like the cute, fluffy contemporaries that I like to read when my anxiety is giving me a hard time and since lately that has been the case, I’m looking forward to having some new contemporaries to read!

And when a reckless kiss causes all three of them to break up, she may lose them a lot sooner. On top of that, her ex-girlfriend is back in town, bringing with her a slew of memories, both good and bad.

Can Babe keep her distance, or will she break the one rule she’s always had – to never fall for a summer boy?

Why I’m anticipating it? This sounds cute and it has a bisexual main characters, which I’m always excited about! I’m lucky enough to be participating in the blog tour organized by the lovely Lili @ Utopia State of Mind and I can’t wait to share my review and some other fun things with everyone!

The Weight of the StarsThe Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum

Why I’m anticipating it? This has a hate to love slow-burn f/f romance and I’m so ready for it! Also, there’s a polyamorous relationship between some of the secondary characters, which I can’t wait to read about!

Anticipated Releases of February 2019

Anticipated Book Releases new

Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about some of the books that are coming out in February 2019 and that I can’t wait to read!

on the come up

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas 

Release Date: February 5th

Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri’s got big shoes to fill. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it.

Why am I anticipating it?: I obviously read and loved The Hate U Give and I can’t wait to read Angie Thomas second novel. The cover’s amazing and I have heard great things from the few people that got arcs and I’m just excited to get this! Also, it comes out right on time for Black History Month, so I will be reading this as soon as I get it. 

the risk

The Risk by Elle Kennedy (Briar U #2) 

Release Date: February 18th

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, & too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me. I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend. For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him. That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

Why am I anticipating it?: This book has fake dating AND enemies to lovers, which are two of my favorite tropes, so I would read it just for that. But the truth is that I have been meaning to read this since I finished the first book in the series, because I loved Brenna when she was introduced in that book and now  she is gonna be the main characters. Also, the glimpses we got of Brenan and Jake in the first book left me really intrigued about their dynamic.

the priory of the orange tree

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon 

Release Date: February 26th

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel. Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

Why am I anticipating it?: Dragons + Matriarchy+ Secret Society of Mages??!  I CAN’T WAIT to get my hand on this book!  Not only does it sound amazing, I actually  have heard great things from people that got arcs.

we set the dark on fire

We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia 

Release Date: February 26th

At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society. Depending on her specialization, a graduate will one day run a husband’s household or raise his children, but both are promised a life of comfort and luxury, far from the frequent political uprisings of the lower class. Daniela Vargas is the school’s top student, but her bright future depends upon no one discovering her darkest secret—that her pedigree is a lie. Her parents sacrificed everything to obtain forged identification papers so Dani could rise above her station. Now that her marriage to an important politico’s son is fast approaching, she must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society, where famine and poverty rule supreme.

On her graduation night, Dani seems to be in the clear, despite the surprises that unfold. But nothing prepares her for all the difficult choices she must make, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio. Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or to give up everything he’s strived for in pursuit of a free Medio—and a chance at a forbidden love?

Why am I anticipating it?: This is close to the top of my list of most anticipated books of 2019, it has a Latinx main characters, the author is also Latinx and there’s an enemies to lovers f/f romance. I mean WHAT ELSE COULD I ASK FOR??! Nothing, really, but still this book gets even better becuase it discusses important subjects like gender roles, immigration and being undocumented. I honestly can’t wait to read it!

On Anticipated Releases & Why I (Often) Don’t Read Mine

on anticipated releases

Hi everyone! I have been writing posts all this year with my most anticipated releases for each month, so I wanted to look at how many new releases I actually read in 2018 and I found some very disappointing things:

  • I put a total of 60 books on my posts of anticipated releases for each month.
  • I read  29 new releases in 2018 = 19 were on those lists and 11  were not.
  • The release date of 2 of the books on those lists were pushed to 2019.
  • 60 – 19 – 2= 39 books I did NOT read.
  • Of those 39, there’s 21 books I still want to read and 18 I’m no longer interested in.
  • At the time I’m writing this, I have read 140 books in 2018. Like I said, I read 29 new releases this year, which means 20% of the total amount I read.

So, I basically failed miserably. I didn’t read that many new releases and I only increased the number of new releases I read by 5 books in comparision with 2017, which sucks because I read like 50 books more in 2018.

separador-1.png

I have been thinking about WHY I DON’T READ MY ANTICIPATED RELEASES??!!  and I have come up with some answers and I would love to know if these things happen to other people as well.

Fear of disappointment

I’m always nervous about not enjoying the books I’m highly anticipating, I’m scared of being disappointed and then my anxiety turns that fear into a huge deal and I end up not wanting to pick those books up.  This happens especially if I haven’t read any other books by that author or if the book deals with sensitive topics.

Loss of interest

This mainly happens when a book comes out and it receives mixed or negative reviews, because then I won’t want to read it anymore. Alos, there are a few cases in which I won’t be able to explain why but the premise of the book will stop sounding interesting to me. And lastly, there are times when I’ll find out the book deals with a topic or trope I don’t like or I don’t want to read about and so I’ll lose interest.

Mood reader

Unfortunately, this is the main reason I don’t read most of my ancticipated releases. Sometimes it’s as simple as I’m not in the mood for a books and if I force myself to read a it, I’m gonna end up not enjoying it.

There are so many books

I have about 400 unread ebooks and about 30 unread physical books. I have too many books and, as much as I love new realeases, backlists books deserve love too! There are so many books I want to read, SO MANY, but as every bookworm knows there’s just not enough time to read them all.

Anticipated Book Releases of December 2018

Anticipated Book Releases new.png

I have written a post about my most anticipated releases for each month this year, I would like to say I have read at least half of the books I put on those lists, BUT I HAVE NOT 😭 My tbr is out of control! Please send help!

Anyway, here are three more books that I’m highly anticipating and that I hope to read before the year is over:

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare 

This is the third and final book in The Dark Artifices series, which follows the Shadowhunters of the Los Angeles Institute as dark secrets and forbidden love threatens their very survival.

I’m currently reading Lord of Shadows so I can be ready to read this book as soon as it comes out.  I waited so long to read Lord of Shadows so I didn’t have to wait too long to know how the story ends, but now it’s finally time to find out!

Release Date: December 4th

Tangled Like Us by Krista & Becca Ritchie 

This is the fourth book in the Like Us series, which follows a family of wealthy celebrities and the bodyguards that protect them. The Like Us series is connected to two other series by these authors, so it’s actually the 14th book that revolves around the same family.

I have LOVED and reread the other 13th books a few times, so I can’t wait to know how the story of this family continues. Also, this is the first book told form Jane and Thatcher’s perspectives and I’m so excited!

Release Date: December 18th 

The Disasters by M.K. England

Nax Hall gets kicked out of an elite Academy, but when a terrorist group attacks, Nax and three other washouts escape and become the sole witnesses and the perfect scapegoats. On the run and framed for atrocities they didn’t commit, Nax and the others execute a dangerous heist to spread the truth about what happened at the Academy.

I LOVE books about heists that take place in space, so this sounded right up my alley. I only know one person that has read this book and they loved it, so I’m excited to give it a chance. Also, the main characters is biracial and bisexual and that makes me even more excited to read this.

Most Anticipated Book Releases of November 2018

Most anticipated book releases 2018

I love getting new books even when I have a tbr that threatens to take over my life, so here are some book that are coming out in November and that I’m highly anticipating!

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan 

Each year, eight beautiful girls are chosen as Paper Girls to serve the king. It’s the highest honor they could hope for…and the most cruel. But this year, there’s a ninth girl. And instead of paper, she’s made of fire.

I’ve been waiting for this book since the beginning of the year, I wanted to read it even before everyone started to talk about how fantastic it is. An Asian inspired fantasy book with a f/f relationship? Count me in!  I AM EXCITED!

Release Date: November 6th 2018

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty 

Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be. 

I really, really liked Big Little Lies and I have been meaning to read another Liane Moriarty book ever since. Then I read the synopsis of Nine Perfect Strangers and it sounded like a modern version of an Agatha Christie novel and HOW COULD I RESIST?! I couldn’t, basically.

Release Date: November 6th 2018

Pulp by Robin Talley 

In 1955, eighteen-year-old Janet Jones keeps the love she shares with her best friend Marie a secret, but when she discovers books about women falling in love with other women, it awakens an ambition to write and publish her own story. Sixty-two years later, Abby Zimet can’t stop thinking about her senior project and its subject—classic 1950s lesbian pulp fiction. She feels especially connected to one author, a woman who wrote under the pseudonym “Marian Love,” and becomes determined to track her down and discover her true identity.

This book sounds amazing, BUT I’m a tiny bit nervous because I have heard some mixed things about Robin Talley books. I’m still willing to give it a chance and I’m hoping it’s as good as it sounds like it’s gonna be.

Release Date: November 13th 2018

Most Anticipated Book Releases of October 2018: books I can’t wait to get my hands on!

Most anticipated book releases 2018

September and October are always the best months for releases in my opinion, so I have some amazing book that I can’t wait to get my hands on!

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee 

I read and enjoyed the first book in this series and I can’t wait to read Felicity’s story, since she is one of my favorite characters from book one. In this sequel, Felicity is looking for a way to accomplish her dream of becoming a doctor, in a time when men are seen as the sole guardians of science, and in this persue,  she becomes part of a perilous quest.

Release Date: October 2nd 2018

Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore 

I’m a huge fan of Anna-Marie McLemore, I LOVE When The Moon Was Ours, and I can’t wait to read her next book. I’m definetely adding this to my Latinx Book Bingo TBR since I completely forgot this was coming out during the readathon. This is the story of two sisters that are rivals because of a curse that one day will leave one of them a girl and trap the other in the body of a swan.

Release Date: October 9th 2018

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera 

This is the story of  Arthur and Ben, who meet-cute at the post office, and what the universe have in store for them. I have never read an Adam Silvera book and that really needs to change but I’m scared of how sad his books seem to be, so I’m excited to read this one, because after reading Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda, I’m sure Becky won’t let him crush our heart too badly. RIGHT?!

Release Date: October 9th 2018

A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi 

It’s 2002, a year after 9/11. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped. I’m so excited to read this kind of story from an #ownvoices author, and I’m even more excited because I have heard nothing but great things from people who got arcs.

Release Date: October 16th 2018

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas 

This is my most anticipated release of the entire year, I have been reading these books for the longest time and I just want to know how everything ends …who am I kidding? I’M DYING TO KNOW HOW THIS ENDS.  Aelin’s journey from slave to king’s assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world.

Most Anticipated Book Releases of September 2018: So many amazing books!

Most anticipated book releases 2018

September is gonna be such an amazing month for book releases, there’s so many books that I’m desperate to read that come out this month and I honestly can not wait!

Here are the six books being release in July that I’m highly anticipating, I hope you find something new to add to your tbr!

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren 

I have read a few Christina Lauren books this year so far and I have really liked them, so off course I’m excited for their newest book to come out, especially since it’s a friends to lovers story with a premise that sounds hilarious. This is about two completely different people who have been acquaintances for years and start setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates, because there’s obviously nothing going on between them. I have heard nothing but good things from people that got ARCs, so I’m even more excited!

Release date: September 4th 2018

Pride by Ibi Zoboi 

I have heard great things about American Street by Ibi Zoboi, but I haven’t read it yet, so I’m excited to give one of her books a chance and what better choice than a Pride and Prejudice retelling with an afro-latinx main character, and a storyline that revolves around the gentrification of a primarily latinx neighborhood. Honestly, what more could I ask for?

Release date: September 18th 2018

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith 

I have been waiting forever for this book and I can’t believe it’s finally here! This is book 4 in the Cormoran Strike series and after the end of book 3, I’m excited to see the changes in the dynamic between the characters. In this book, Detective Cormoran Strike and his ex-asistant- now partner in the detective firm- Robin Ellacott, try to find out what happened years ago to a troubled man who comes looking for their help.

Release date: September 18th 2018

Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalo 

This has to be one of my most anticipated books of the year, it’s the third book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series and I’m so excited to read about Audrey Rose and Thomas new adventure. In this book, the luxurious ship, where Audrey Rose and Thomas are passengers, becomes a floating prison of scandal, madness, and horror when passengers start being murdered and there’s nowhere to run from the killer. The fact that Kerri wrote a fake ending for the ARCs has me so intrigued, I need this book inmidiately!

Release date: September 18th 2018

Analee, In Real Life by Janelle Milanes 

I have been meaning to read Janelle Milanes’ debut novel The Victoria in my Head for a while, and I still haven’t done it, but because of that, I requested an ARC of this book and got it, and I’m excited to read it during the Latinx Book Bingo. This is the story of a latina girl, who’s mother passed away and she spends her time role playing in an online game where she mets a boy she likes but she isn’t able to tell him. At the same time, in real life, a popular boy asks her to be his fake girlfriend and he starts to coax her out of her comfort zone. I don’t know if I’m right, but I’m sensing a You’ve Got Mail situation and I’m excited about it!

Release date: September 18th 2018

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green 

Honestly, I’m mainly curious to see if this is any good since it’s Hank Green’s first book and the premise sounds intriguing. In this book, a bunch of sculptures started to show up in different cities around the world and this is the story of the woman that posted the first video of one of the sculptures online and how that video went viral and that changed her life. Also, it’s about the mystery surrounding the sculptures, about what they are and what they want from us. I have hard that this is quirky, pop-culture-filled, sci-fi-ish and I’m excited to read it!

Most Anticipated Book Releases – July 2018

Most anticipated book releases 2018

I only had two books that are gonna be release on July on my Goodreads shelf of anticipated book releases of 2018, so when I started to write this post I decided to check some of the lists on Goodreads and see if I was missing some amazing book. It turns out that I found two more books that sound absolutely fantastic and that I can’t wait to read.

Here are the four books being release in July that I’m really excited to read, I hope you find something new to add to your tbr!

 

Dr. Strange Beard by Penny Reid

I have been waiting for this book for an entire year and it’s almost time to read it and I’m so excited! This is the fifth book in a series, but the series can be read out of order. The books follow the Winston brothers as they each find love and it’s one of my favorite romance series, so I can’t wait to read this book.

Release Date: July 30th 2018

Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie

I read The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie a few months ago and I really enjoyed it, so I’m really excited to read another book by her. This is a science fiction book about two girls that become mechanically enhanced soldiers, one does it to save her brother and the other one doesn’t remember why she did it. That sounds so interesting to me, I haven’t read a lot of books about cyborgs but I’m really intrigued to see how it’s explored in this book.

Release Date: July 17th 2018

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh

This is one of those book written from a very appathetic perspective, which is very much related to the fact that the main character suffers from depression, and I always find that that kind of perspectives resonate a lot with me. Also, the entire premise of a woman taking a year off to sleep sounds weird but intriguing to me and  I can’t wait to read this book and find out what happens. Additionally, I have heard nothing but amazing things about Moshfegh’s writing and I want to see for myself what’s so especial about it.

Release Date: July 17th 2018

Fruit of the Druken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras 

This book is a recently discovery of mine, it’s a book set in Colombia (where I’m from) and it’s about an unlikely friendship between two girls that lived in Bogotá during a time where the internal armed conflict was taking over the country and touching the lives of its habitants in a million diferent ways. I can’t believe this book exists and I’m so excited to read it, especially because it’s inspired by the author’s own life. I’m a bit nervous, but I’m hoping this is great and more people will learn about the history of my country from a better source than Narcos on Netflix.

Release Date: July 31st 2018

Most Anticipated Book Releases – June 2018

Most anticipated book releases 2018

Hi guys! So, I have written one of these posts ever month this year,  I have been consisten in that sense at least, but I have done a very poor job of actually reading the books I’m anticipating. I’m hoping to make a post in June to check my progress, because reading my anticipated books was a goal of mine for 2018, so I hope that’s gonna motivate me to actually read some of the books I have put in these posts before the month ends. Let’s hope that actually happens!

Anyway, here are some of my most anticipated books that are being release in June 2018:

 

Mariam Sharma Hits the Road by Sheba Karim

Road trip + frienships + New Orleans + Muslim rep + South Asian rep + fun banter + Queer rep + self discovery = what else could I ask for?! This sounds like a book I would really enjoy and I was really excited to read it, until I look it up on Goodreads to write this post and saw that it doesn’t have the best reviews. I have been anticipating it for a while and that’s why I still included it, but I’m a bit nervious about it.

Ayesha At Last by Uzma Jalaluddin

The main character in this book is a muslim woman, who is an aspiring poet struggling with money issues, that sounds really interesting to me. Plus, this is an #ownvoices story. Also, it’s a Pride and Prejudice retelling and I love those!

Not the Girls You’re Looking For  by Aminah Mae Safi

Female friendship takes a central place in this story and I’m here for it! If we add the fact that this is a very diverse book in terms of culture and sexual orientation, I’m even more excited. Also, it’s #ownvoices!

 Release date: June 19th 2018

Final Draft by Riley Redgate

This book has a pansexual, biracial,  plus-size main character, who is an aspiring writer, and I can’t wait to read her story. Plus, I heard that her group of friends is adorable and it’s a big part of the story and I’m excited to read about them.  Also, I have heard a lot of great things about Riley Redgate’s writing and her other books, so I want to read something by her.

Most Anticipated Book Releases – May 2018

Most anticipated book releases 2018

May had been a really busy and stressful month for me, so that’s why this post is very, very late. Nontheless, I wanted to talk about the books that came out or come out in May and that I’m highly anticipating. I want to give a special mention to A Court of Frost and Starligh by Sarah J. Maas, which was my most anticipated book of the month and since  I already read it, I didn’t include it on this list.

 

Furyborn by Claire Legrand 

I actually have an earc of this, I have had it for 2 months but I have been in a fantasy slump, so that’s why I haven’t read it yet. Still, it sounds fascinating, it has two female protagonist living in different time periods and their stories intertwine. Also, this has magic trials, which I love.

Release date: May 22nd 2018

Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake 

I have an earc of this book, but my mental health hasn’t been in good lately and this book sounds sad and hard to read, so I’m leaving it for another time. BUT I have heard nothing but great things about it. This book deals with rape, consent and victim blaming.

Release date: May 15th 2018

From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon

I read When Dimple Met Rishi when it came out and I really liked it, so I can wait to read Menon’s new book.  I think this is gonna be a really cute story. Also, it’s told through the letters the main character, Twinkle, writes to her favorite female filmmakers, which sounds fascinating.

Release date: May 22nd 2018

Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West 

I really liked the few Kasie West’s books that I have read and I want to give this one a chance. The main character of this book ends up hosting a podcast and I want to see how that format is incorporated in the story. Also, the love interest is latinx and that makes me excited, I hope it’s handled well.

Release date: May 29th 2018

Royals by Rachel Hawkins 

I love books with modern royalty and this books has that. I’m expecting a light read with fluffy and funny moments, which is exactly what I’m in the mood for at the moment.
