The Red Queen Dies by Frankie Y. Bailey
I featured this one in a WoW post a few months ago and I’m super excited I received a copy! It’s a mystery that takes place in 2019 and is heavy on the Alice in Wonderland shoutouts. Before I started blogging Adult Thriller/Mystery was my go-to genre and it’s still got a special place in my heart.
Foreplay (The Ivy Chronicles #1) by Sophie Jordan
A few weeks ago I got an ARC of Sophie’s upcoming YA, Uninvited, and I’m curious about this NA. I’m still on the fence about New Adult, but I haven’t given up on it just yet!
Sky Jumpers (Sky Jumpers #1) by Peggy Eddleman
NetGalley sent me an invitation to read this one and you guys know I can’t pass up a fun Middle Grade! It’s seems like a Dystopian – which I’m kind of MEH about – but I’ll give it a shot!
The Scar Boys by Len Vlahos
“If RJ Palacio’s Wonder was a young adult novel, it’d be something like The Scar Boys.” SAY NO MORE!
White Space (Dark Passages #1) by Ilsa J. Bick
The Matrix + Inkheart! A girl is able to jump into books. I LOVE books that blur the lines between the characters and ‘book’ characters.
Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac
Haha, I featured this one in this week’s WoW post and came back from vacation to discover I received a copy! TALK ABOUT PERFECT TIMING. This one is also a bit Dystopian, but it deals with Apache folklore so I’m ALLLL about it!
In Case You Missed It
I fell HARD for The Girl You Left Behind. It was my first Jojo Moyes, but it definitely WON’T be the last. Dual narratives, WWI, a painting with a dark past. If you’re typically a YA reader and you’re looking to dip your feel into Adult, read this book.
I announced both the winner of a giveaway and my departure for vacation! Sadly, the vacation went WAY too fast.
Waiting on Wednesday: Killer of Enemies!
It’s been years since I’ve read a Sharon Creech novel, but her upcoming one looked too good to pass up. The Boy on the Porch feels like a Middle Grade novel written for adults and the ending felt like a punch in the gut.
