I actually haven’t been able to get to the library proper in a couple weeks. As such, no physical books out for me this week! Fortunately, I’ve been able to keep my kindle loaded with a ton of new books thanks to recent sales (the pride sales are making my wallet yell at me but it’s all worth it). I’m hoping I can get to the library soon, but we’ll see. Thank goodness for Libby!
I have a confession to make – I actually own phyiscal or kindle copies of some of these books. I’ve just found it easier to listen to audiobooks at work or while I’m working around the house so I checked them out from the library.
Aru Shah and the End of Time So, I’m a big fan of the Rick Riordan Presents imprint and it’s mission. Everything they put out so far and have announced seem really great and have been getting wonderful feedback. I’ve also been directed to Roshani Chokshi’s work by several people. I can’t wait to read this – especially since the sequel just came out!
Dragon Pearl This one is also part of the Rick Riordan Presents imprint. I was actually supposed to read this last month for a book club but life just got out of hand. I own a beautiful hardcover of this book but have opted to borrow an audiobook so I can listen while I work.
You Know Me Well I bought this one earlier this month as it was recommended on a lot of pride lists and was on sale. I then proceeded to borrow the audiobook because work is tedious without audiobooks. I can see why people like this book but honestly, it wasn’t for me.
The Music of What Happens I’ve been seeing this pop up on a lot of pride list rec lists so I’m going to give it a shot. The summary seems cute and it also has a food truck so like, sign me up?
The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried So I’ve seen this book a lot in the available audiobook section on Libby. It automatically grabbed my attention with the skeleton on the cover (hint: the way to my heart and grab my attention is through a good skeleton/skull moment). It was also on Anniek’s Library’s #PrideLibrary19 LGBTQ+ Sci-Fi recommendations. I actually finished it up this morning and it was pretty fun! If you’re into the reanimated dead in a contemporary setting, I’d definitely recommend Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson.
With the Fire On High I’ve been wanting to read this for so long and I was lucky to get my hold in so quickly after release! I felt this was a really positive spin on the struggles of being a teen mom while also being a delightful foodie read. I’ve learned over the last few months that I should just read anything Elizabeth Acevedo writes.
