➸ Starsight by Brandon Sanderson
This is the sequel to Skyward!
➸ Belle Revolté by Linsey Miller
I read this gorgeous book last year and it was so fantastic. The magic within this story was interesting and unlike anything I have ever read before. I’m very happy to hand my hands on a finished copy.
➸ Black Enough edited by Ibi Zoboi
This is a wonderful anthology about what it is like being young and Black in today’s society. I absolutely loved this book. It was so educational. It discussed the diversity within diversity! Highly recommend picking it up!
➸ Felix Ever After by Kacen Calender
This beauty is an own voices story about a Black trans teenage boy who is trying to navigate his sexuality while also maybe falling in love. This book was EVERYTHING I wanted plus more. Please please please read this!
➸ It Sounded Better in My Head by Nine Kenwood
Another book I had an ARC of that I’m excited to have on my shelf!
➸ Fire & Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
These are the second and third books in the Graceling Realm series. Apparently these books are hard to come by in hardcover so when I found them I went ahead and purchased them! I haven’t even read the first book yet so fingers crossed I like it!
➸ Home After Dark by Riley Sager
My June BOTM pick!
➸ Kingdom of Souls by Reba Barron
I have seen fantastic reviews for this book lately! I CANNOT WAIT to read it very soon.
➸ Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
The first book in a fun and magical middle grade series!
➸ Opium & Absinthe by Lydia Kang
Thank you so much to Kay Publicity for sending me a finished copy!
➸ Legendary by Stephanie Garber
A few months ago Stephanie Garber hosted a giveaway type thing where if you bought a book from an indie store then she would send you a foreign edition of one of her books! I thought this was such a cool idea so of course I participated. I was sent a signed Indonesian edition of Legendary! How cool is that?!
➸ Dear Martin by Nic Stone
I am so happy that I finally picked this book up. I have heard amazing things about it. I have only read a short story by Nic Sone but I really loved her writing. I have high hopes that I will love Dear Martin as well.
➸ Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
Sooooo this is actually my second time buying this book. I unhaled my first copy because well, to be honest I didn’t actually love this book as much as I hoped to. Why am I adding it back to my collection now?? Well because I’m a weirdo who wants to have the Creekwood books together on her shelf.
➸ Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust
This was the book pick for Fairyloot’s May box! I am in LOVE with this cover!!
➸ Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles
This was the book pick for Owlcrate’s June box! I love that there isn’t a dust jacket.
What books did you acquire last month?? Have you read any of these??
