Wonder Woman: Warbringer – Leigh Bardugo
How could I not pick up this book? Leigh Bardugo is one of my favorite authors! Her Six of Crows duology is one of my all-time favorite series. I can’t wait to delve into her take on Wonder Woman.
The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
How does anyone who reads YA not know about this book? I know that I am a little late picking up this book (sighs). This book has been on the New York Time Bestseller list since it’s release, 33 weeks running. I’ve heard many great reviews on the way Angie Thomas brought up such an important topic at the moment.
The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzie Lee
Adventure! Diversity! 18th Century Europe! Yes please. Monty, born a gentle, goes on a pleasure filled journey through 18th century Europe while crushing on his best friend Percy. I can’t wait to read this funny book.
Warcross – Marie Lu
The main character, Emika Chen decides to hack the popular video game Warcross in order to make a few bucks, but when she accidentally adds herself into the game, the inventor of Warcross offers her a job she can’t refuse. A sci-fi novel written by Marie Lu is definitely a book to read. While I haven’t read previous books by Marie Lu, I am very excited nonetheless.
Dear Martin – Nic Stone
Wow! Such an empowering read. Much like The Hate U Give, Dear Martin tackles the problem of racial disparity in our current day culture. One of the only books I have already read from this book haul, it was so moving. You can read my review here.
When Dimple Met Rishi – Sandhya Menon
A YA contemporary romance novel about two Indian-Americans feeling the pressure to marry by this parents is a quirky read. I gave this book four out of five stars. It was a solid and enjoyable read.
We are the Ants – Shaun David Hutchinson
I picked up this book because I had heard how good it is. The MC must decide whether or not to save the world. When he meets someone who questions his values and beliefs, he’s not sure what to do.
The Sun and Her Flowers – Rupi Kaur
Rupi Kaur has just released her second poetry book and how could I not pick it up? Let me be honest here: I never read Milk and Honey. I just never had the chance so I am very excited to read this.
The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken
I have heard so many good things about the books written by Alexandra Bracken. Everyone has the most positive things to say about her books. I can’t wait to start reading this series.
The Knife of Never Letting Go – Patrick Ness
I may have a book buying problem. Can that even be considered a problem? I feel like this book haul was all about picking up books I had heard about. Marie Lu, Alexandra Bracken, and Patrick Ness? All authors I haven’t read any of their works, but am excited to begin to.
