I’ve said so many times that I don’t do TBRs since I’m a bit of a mood reader. However, I have fair amount of ARCs (digital and physical) that I need to get through, so this will most likely be what my TBR consists of.
In a post from last week, I talked about how my next reads were Sherwood and Sky Without Stars. I managed to read the first chapter of the latter, and I’m intrigued. I have a few more eARCs on my e-reader, and these are some of my most anticipated reads:
I also have a few non-YA books on my radar.
I was sent an ARC of Kingdom of Copper just as the book released. I read The City of Brass fairly quickly and fell in love with it. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about the sequel, and with the way TCoB ended, I don’t know what to expect in KoC!
The next book, Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune, sounds like an absolute blast. Here’s the synopsis:
“At the news of her mother’s death, Natalie Tan returns home. The two women hadn’t spoken since Natalie left in anger seven years ago, when her mother refused to support her chosen career as a chef. Natalie is shocked to discover the vibrant neighborhood of San Francisco’s Chinatown that she remembers from her childhood is fading, with businesses failing and families moving out. She’s even more surprised to learn she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant.
The neighborhood seer reads the restaurant’s fortune in the leaves: Natalie must cook three recipes from her grandmother’s cookbook to aid her struggling neighbors before the restaurant will succeed. Unfortunately, Natalie has no desire to help them try to turn things around–she resents the local shopkeepers for leaving her alone to take care of her agoraphobic mother when she was growing up. But with the support of a surprising new friend and a budding romance, Natalie starts to realize that maybe her neighbors really have been there for her all along.”
The book is set to release on June 11, 2019!
I’ve been eager to read more non-YA, and I have a feeling these two books are absolutely perfect as I dip my toes into the water.
I have two audiobooks on hold at the library for what seems like weeks and I think I’m finally going to be able to check them out soon:
I just started Queen of Air and Darkness on audiobook and wow, so somber. 😦 I mean, if you’ve read LoS then you’d know why but it’s so heavy. I also want to strangle some people.
I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, and the books I do read are mostly about royalty. But I simply couldn’t resist wanting to read Becoming, especially when I found out the audiobook is narrated by Michelle herself.
In terms of contemporary YA, Erin Hahn’s You’d Be Mine reminds me something Emery Lord would write (minus the country music, perhaps), so I can’t wait to read this one. I was fortunate enough to receive an eARC when it was a “Read Now” option on NetGalley. The book releases on April 2 (my youngest niece’s birthday, so I’m taking that as a good sign 😉 )!
Here’s the synopsis:
“Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.”
These last three (yes, I did 11 instead of 10) books don’t release until May, but it’s still considered spring until June so I wanted to include them.
Somewhere Only We Know releases on May 7, while We Hunt the Flame and The Candle and Flame are both set to release on May 14th.
