This week I am I finishing up a book from last week, and I started two new books.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren (eARC) – I’m here for this rom-com enemies to lovers trope. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Christina Lauren’s writing, and this book is exactly what I need in my life right now. I’m a couple of chapters in, and I get why everyone raves about her writing. Absolutely hilarious.
The Drowning by J.P. Smith – This one is probably going to tear me apart, but I’m giving it my all anyways. I’m just starting this one today, so I’ll let you know next week how I feel.
Do You Dream of Terra-Two? by Temi Oh (ARC) – I’m finishing up this amazing sci-fi, which officially releases tomorrow! This is a brilliant debut novel.
Recently Finished Reading
This past week was devoted to ARC catch up! There were some tense nights there, but I got through them.
Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams (ARC) – 5 stars. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours. I absolutely loved it. I’m still finishing up my review that doesn’t just scream at you to read/buy this book.
Almost Home by Valerie Fraser Luesse (ARC) – 3 stars. This was the first time I didn’t realize a deadline was the next day, so I read it all in one sitting. It was a quick read. This is a historical fiction that takes place in the 1940s. I liked it, but it became glaring obvious when I read it that it was outside my preferred genres. Here is my review.
Her Closest Friend by Clare Boyd (eARC) – 4 stars. This book is one of those slow burn psychological thrillers that grips you, but you know the plot will not reveal itself so easily. I loved watching the progression of Naomi and Sophie’s relationship unfold. My review will be up tomorrow as part of the blog tour hosted by Bookouture.
The Girl of the Tower (Tornnis Trilogy #1) by Paula Ottoni (eARC) – 4 stars. This is both a dark and refreshing take on Rapunzel. Sophie must band together with her friends in order to break the cursed cycle that other magical girls had previously been sacrificed for. I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s filled with self-discovery, an extremely dysfunctional royal family, a tyrannical King, love, and of course, magic. Here is my review.
The Shadowverse: A YA Sci-Fi Superhero Thriller by John-Clement Gallo – 4 stars. This was an action packed, kick ass, teens take on the universe type of book. From page one, I enjoyed watching the characters come into their powers and band together to save the world. Here is my review.
Up Next to Read:
The Crowns of Coswald by D.E. Night – My friend and I are buddy reading this one, and I can’t wait!! I absolutely love middle grade fantasy.
Only Daughter by Sarah A. Denzil (eARC) – Another psychological thriller mystery coming from Bookouture. This one is on my NetGalley queue. I love this cover!
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens – I’m still so apprehensive about this one because the hype is unreal, and I know I’m probably going to cry like a baby.
Blood Shadowsby Lindsay J. Pryor (eARC) – Urban paranormal fantasy? I am here for this one!
