This week I have Comic-Con to look forward to! I’ll try not to have too much radio silence while I’m gone. I’m so excited to go because life has been just so draining lately- I need a bit of fun. Hope everyone’s been having a great summer so far.
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay – I was so excited to see what Katja wrote – one of the most powerful lines from the book. (It says: “Your garage” – makes no sense out of context, but read the book!)
Faking It by Cora Carmack – So great to have a signed copy and bookmark!
I also picked up a couple new releases:
The Theory of Everything by Kari Luna – Kindle edition. This book sounds so different – it’s about a girl who has a shaman panda, likes 80s music, and incorporates hallucinations, string theory, and a missing dad. Wow!
Vortex by S.J. Kincaid – Audiobook read by Lincoln Hoppe. I was surprised the sequel to Insignia was out already. I had heard almost nothing about it when I saw it on Audible.
Night Film by Marisha Pessl from Shelf Awareness – I had forgotten I’d entered for this. It is quite an intimidating looking book but sounds great.
The Humans by Matt Haig, read by Mark Meadows – Audiobook from Simon & Schuster Audio. This has a cool premise -it’s about an alien who assumes the body of a math professor who was on to something that threatens the aliens’ way of life. The alien ends up falling for the humans instead.
Belladonna by Fiona Paul, read by Kathleen McInerney – Audiobook from Penguin Audio. The second book in the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series. Wow, I didn’t know they changed the covers for these books!
The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers – This novella has been getting stellar reviews. I’ll probably get to this one this week.
Covet by Tracy Garvis-Graves – I’ve had my eye on this one since I liked On the Island so much.
Friday Night Alibi by Cassie Mae – Looks like a cute and funny NA romance.
The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine – Love the cover and the premise sounds very cute. Quiet girl wants to change her image and meets a popular guy on a downward spiral who also is looking for an image makeover when their worlds collide.
Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell – This book from an 18-year-old author sounds very intriguing. It’s about a teenage serial killer and is set in London.
No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale – Cute cover that looks like a sweater, right? This is about a murder in a small town called Friendship, Wisconsin. The victim’s best friend sets out to find the killer.
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens – A girl is hiding a secret of what happened to her over the summer- boy next door moves in and they lean on each other. Ruta Sepetys wrote the blurb and that gives me high hopes for this one.
Let me know what you’re reading or listening to in the comments. Have a good week!
