What's Coming Up In June



I'm super excited to finally be jumping into summer! June already has a ton of amazing books on the way, and it looks like the rest of the summer is jam packed as well. I'm excited to have more time to write and work on the blog! For Saturday discussions, I'm thinking about talking about graduation and maybe my experience with the SAT this month along with some more bookish thoughts. I'll also be working on a summer reading list of summery books from the past some that are coming out!  Let me know in the comments if there are certain posts or topics you'd like to see from me. Happy summer everyone!
Dissenter On The Bench
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is amazing. I was super excited to stumble upon a new YA biography about her! I'll be sharing my review of the book on Friday the 31st of May. 

Virtually Yours
More college YA! This time, an NYU freshman decides to try a new VR dating app. Inside their system, she reconnects with her exboyfriend under a fake name. Slowly, both a love triangle and a web of lies for around her freshman year. I'll be posting a full review on June 3. 

The Art of Breaking Things
This book has been on the top of my radar since January, and I'm so happy that I've gotten to partner with Laura Sibson to interview her about the book! I absolutely loved the book. While it is a heavy story, it's a genuine, vivid depiction of teen life today. Watch for my review and interview on June 5th and 7th. 

The Exact Opposite of Okay
In a new novel from Harper Teen, Laura Stevens tells the story of fall out after Izzy is caught with a politician's son in a less than flattering situation. The slut shaming and social war that follows on both a school and national level redefines Izzy's world in a way she could have never expected. I'll be posting that review on June 10th.

Impossible Music
Impossible Music delves into Simon's life in the wake of a stroke that has left him deaf. With music having priorly defined his identity, Simon is left depressed and lost until he meets another deaf girl that introduces him to a new world and helps him cope. I love seeing more books with a broader variety of representation! I'll be posting this review June 12. 

Something Like Gravity
I'm a huge fan of everything that Amber Smith writes, so I was thrilled to be sent an ARC of her new book. Bound together by a fatal car accident and plenty of confusion and grief, Maia and Chris aren't sure what they are to each other or how their relationship will evolve. They have a summer together to find out. I'll be posting my review on June 14th. 

Call It What You Want
His father stole money from the entire town before ending his life in an infamous scandal. She cheated on the SAT and caused everyone's scores to get cancelled. Both of their lives are in free fall, but, when a physics project brings them together, they start to realize that they're not alone. My review will be out on June 21st.

The Grief Keeper
After Marisol and her family illegally flee El Salvador to escape almost certain death, they are caught illegally in the United States. The only choice that's left for them to stay is for Marisol to become a grief keeper and take on other people's sadness into her own body. This speculative twist on this timely story creates a surely interesting read. I'll also be chatting with Alex Villasante on June 28th about it!
