What Happened in May?
May went by in a blink of an eye! Whether it was the stress of school and final exams, or the anticipation of my trip to Morocco, this month flew by for me. In terms of books, there were a lot of sequels coming out, but not many debuts or stand alones. Hopefully we’ll begin to see more new authors, because it sometimes feels tiring to see the same ten names every month.
Debut Author I Loved
Karen McManus’s debut mystery was pitched as Pretty Little Liars meets the Breakfast Club, a description which it certainly lives up to. Sometimes trashy, always page-turning, this debut is perfect for a long flight or rainy day.
What I’m Reading
Right now, I’m reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Next up is A Million Junes, Emily Henry’s much anticipated second novel.
What I Blogged About
Review: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
Review: Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Review: Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
What I’m Excited for in June
June 4: Oblong Books in Rhinebeck hosts Laini Taylor and Victoria Schwab
June 6: Once and For All by Sarah Dessen comes out. Dessen’s novels are perfect beach reads, light, funny, and always sweet.
June 6: Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley is released. Another romance, Crowley’s debut takes place in a bookstore. What’s better than that?
