Oy! Happy Sunday!
Wait. Actually it is Wednesday. It is the second day of summer and time has already taken off running leaving me confused and clueless as to what day it is. Whoops.
I’m not normally one for making a tbr. Wait, let me rephrase that… I’m not one for sticking to my tbr. I do enjoy making them. Something about compiling a bunch of books in a list and then gazing longingly at them as you read other books is just good for the soul, you know?
Words cannot even begin to describe how much I love Red, White and Royal Blue. All of those ridiculous, vibrant, beautiful characters own my soul. If One Last Stop is even half as good, I don’t think I will be able to emotionally recover.
The current wait at the library is 8 month (EIGHT MONTHS FKFCJSDKF) and I think my soul is dying a little bit. Soo I preordered a copy (for the first time ever eee). Hopefully it comes soon, but according to the tracker I’ve obsessively been checking I still have a couple days.
I’m still going to preemptive warning before it comes in. If I’m gone for however long it takes to read the book plus however long it takes to scrape my melted glob of a self off the floor, that’s why.
I’m a simple girl. I see sapphic fake-dating and the book goes on the tbr.
We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This got added to the tbr for two golden reasons:
- I have a purple-ish pink color scheme going on with this tbr and I’d like the keep the theme alive and kicking
- Rachel Lynn Solomon owns my heart after Today, Tonight, Tomorrow
I’ve heard nothing but good things about Alice Oseman’s books. I really really need to dive into the Heartstopper series, but library holds take foreverrrr. I do have a copy of Loveless arrive in the mail soon that I’m hyped to dive into.
I am weak for retellings. So when I heard of this Secret Garden contemporary fantasy I knew I had to read it asap. Plant magic? Yes. I was going to ask another question, but that is literally all I know about it lol.
The Henna Wars was my last read of 2020 and hands down one of the most memorable. So imagine by excitement when Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating was released!
Not to mention the fact that there is sapphic fake dating and sunshine and grumpy dynamic! Plus the advice columns Jaigirdar ran during the last three weeks got me super hyped to read it!! I haven’t even read a page but I love Ishu already.
Queer pop band reunites? Fandom? Friendship? Sign me up.
Drama and movie magic.
Um yea, that is basically it. I’m not that great at explaining why I want to read stuff, I just go hmmm the cover looks nice and I like the vibes. Really, that’s it.
PIRATES! PIRATES! PIRATES!
How many of these will I actually read? That, I do not know. If I had to guess I’d wager 3/10. If I’m feeling lucky. And that’s on being a mood reader extraordinaire.
Have you read any of these? What did you think? What books are you looking forward to in June?? Which are at the top of the tbr??
