I have not bought many books this month but did receive some wonderful review copies from publishers, which I am immensely grateful for. The books that I did buy, I am planning on reading in next month for a readathon that I am really excited for.
Let us look at all the books I bought and received this month!
- One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus: I finished this book a few weeks ago for a readathon I was participating in and I ended up really enjoying it. It was, in my opinion, better than the first book and I still think about it now and then.
- Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid: I bought this one because I wanted to read it for The Reading Rush readathon as it was the book club pick but did not manage to get to it. I am hoping to pick it up soon, though.
- Forests of Souls by Lori M. Lee: This one was one of my most anticipated releases. I am super excited for it and am hoping to get to it soon!
- The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi: I got an eARC of the second book in this series and so, I finally bought a copy of the first book. I will be binge reading these two books next month and let you know my thoughts on them.
- Empty Bottles Full of Stories by R.H. Sin and Robert M. Drake: This poetry book is one I have been wanting to read for a very long time and I will finally be reading it next month for a readathon I will be participating in (post for my TBR to come soon).
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah: Yet another book I am hoping to pick up next month for the readathon mentioned above. I just know this book will be such an important read and I am looking forward to read the author’s story.
BOOKS RECEIVED FROM NETGALLEY
- The Silvered Serpents (The Gilded Wolves #2) by Roshani Chokshi: I have been wanting to read The Gilded Wolves for the longest time and when I saw that this one was available to read, I immediately downloaded it. I am buzzing with excitement to binge read these two books in the coming weeks!
- Fable (Fable #1) by Adrienne Young: This is one I have been seeing around in the book community and so, when I saw it available on NetGalley, I just had to download it as well.
- A Golden Fury by Samantha Cohoe: This one was yet another one that was available for download and when I read the synopsis, I could not help myself. I am really looking forward to get to it soon!
- The Switch by Beth O’Leary: I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the author’s novel, The Flatshare, and when I saw this one was available for download on NetGalley, I decided to download it as my first audiobook review copy. It sounds so cute and just something to distract one from all other problems.
BOOKS RECEIVED FROM EDELWEISS
- Super Fake Love Song by David Yoon: I read the author’s debut novel, Frankly in Love, a while back and really enjoyed it. I saw that his newest release was available for download on Edelweiss and I just had to get it. I am really looking forward to getting to this one soon!
BOOKS RECEIVED FROM PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE SOUTH AFRICA
• The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu: I was so pleasantly surprised when I received this book from PRH SA as I have not received any book mail since quarantine started four months ago. This book was one of my most anticipated releases and I am so happy to finally have a copy of it in my hands. Many thank yous to them for providing me with this review copy!
Keep reading and never stop telling stories.
