I think this is the type of book that I could only read around Halloween – otherwise I could never justify reading such a terrifying-looking and -sounding book. I mean, it’s about Bloody Mary, and has that cover – it does not look like a fun and fluffy book, unless the marketing team and cover designers for this book are terrible at their job.
I started hearing buzz about this book back around BEA because that was when the ARC came out, I guess – I haven’t heard as much about it since then, but I do remember that it’s supposed to be about a popular, seemingly happy girl who dies in a car crash that might have been a suicide. And obviously there’s something to do with math, if the cover is anything to go by.
This is another BEA-buzz book, but I had heard about it before that: it’s a book set in the 1950s (or around there) and involves a recently desegregated school, so there’s a lot to do with race relations. There might also be a lesbian relationship? Or am I making that up? I can’t remember for sure.
I was excited for this book because it’s from the debut author of Something Real and involves genies, but I’ve been hearing some not-so-good reviews in the past couple of months and now I’m scared. I think I’ll probably read it anyway to see what I think, but my expectations are definitely lowered.
All I remember about this book is that it’s about a lesbian (or bisexual, that’s always possible!) relationship, and I definitely need to read more LGBTQ books, so that makes it a book that I’m instantly interested in. I think the main character may also be a POC, so even more diversity!
Even though I still need to read the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series, I’m very excited for the final book already. These books are all quite long, but I do love all the characters and mythology and such, so that definitely helps.
Another book about Hollywood! This is part of a contemporary series (kind of) by all different authors that includes the book Wish You Were Italian, which I need to finish and might even have done so by the time this post goes up! Other than involving Hollywood, though, I have no idea what else this fluffy-sounding book is about, so we’ll have to wait and see.
I remember even less about this (I know, I know, I should look these things up before I write up these posts, but I want to be lazy, gosh darn it!), but I’m guessing it involves sisters or best friends and something slightly sinister. I like the cover, which definitely counts for something in my book!
I’m guessing this book involves fairy tales or something like a fairy tale with a twist on the whole damsel in distress bit, which is something I would definitely want to read. Plus the cover is adorable.
This book is obviously a fairy tale story involving Snow White, but I don’t know much else. I’ve seen some people getting ARCs of this, but I still haven’t heard a lot of early opinions, so we’ll have to wait and see.
This book got a new cover that just has different coloring and fonts, but I think I like this version a little more. The title alone is intriguing, and if I remember correctly, it involves a girl from a crime family or a girl who commits some sort of crime or something kind of similar to Heist Society, so that could be a lot of fun!
I actually read a book from this author years ago, probably when I was back in middle school, so I don’t know if this’ll be an author I like or not, but it’s about a girl who has a Tumblr about Audrey Hepburn, so I think that could be a really interesting story. And that cover is really eye-catching, isn’t it?
The sequel to Antigoddess! I feel like I don’t need to say much more than that. I don’t quite remember what happened in Antigoddess, so hopefully I’ll be able to reread that and then read this. Either way, yay mythology!
I’ve heard some mixed things about the other books from this author, but it’s another Hollywood one, this time about a girl involved in a love triangle in the movie she’s in and possible in real life as well, so it sounds right up my alley!
