Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
WILDER GIRLS by Rory Power is sapphic dystopian horror that intrigued me from the plot and I was sold on after the cover reveal (because do you SEE that cover!!). If you’re looking for a book that checks your LGBTQIA+ boxes as well as creeps you out? Look no further. Hollis’ three star review will be up tomorrow.
THE BOOKISH LIFE OF NINA HILL by Abby Waxman is a women’s fiction book about a woman who works in a bookstore, plays trivia, has a cat named Phil, and did I mention she works in a bookstore? Look for Hollis’ and Micky’s three star reviews later this week.
SPIN THE DAWN by Elizabeth Lim is Project Runway meets Mulan in this sweeping YA fantasy about a young girl who poses as a boy to compete for the role of imperial tailor and embarks on an impossible journey to sew three magic dresses, from the sun, the moon, and the stars. Need we even say more?
THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN LOVE & HATE by Sandy Hall is pitched as a YA comtemporary romance but the blurb indicates this is a NA college setting. Nevertheless, I’m still interested in this reemerging of an old middle-school enemy in college who sparks hatred and chemistry.
ONLY EVER YOU by C.D. Reiss seems to be a sweeter contemporary romance than Reiss’ normal releases. This story has all the promise of a strong friends to something more trope and I can get on board with that. Life seems to have gone pear-shaped for the 30-year old heroine and the nerd and friend across the street seems to be the love interest; I’m intrigued.
