My most anticipated releases of 2021 // July, August & September.

Hi, hey hello and welcome to my blog!!

It’s that time of year again where I say “here are some new releases that I really wanna read asap” even though we all know the likelihood of me reading these books any time soon is very slim. It’s a game we play a couple of times a year, we all know the drill by now, it’s cool.

I’m kind of strapped for time today. What with breakfast to cure my mums hangover this morning, a couple of drinks with friends this afternoon and then me organising a Shrek movie marathon with my friend later tonight, it’s a good job I only have 6 books to talk about.

I say “only” six books as if that’s not more then I read in a month but I digress. Here are the up and coming releases I would really like to get to as soon as possible (in theory).

January, February & March // April, May & June.


July

The Right Side of Reckless by Whitney D. Grandison

For some reason it was the title that first grabbed my attention for this book and I’m not sure why but I’m glad it did. I actually was accepted to be part of the blog-tour for this book so out of all these books, I will actually be reading this soon.

This is a YA contemporary romance between a guy who breaks every rule he can, and a “good girl”. I don’t know much more then this but I feel like you can’t really go wrong with this trope and I think I’m going to really enjoy it. I guess we’ll see when it comes tome reviewing it.

Release Date: July 13th 2021

Busy month with lot’s of books // June Wrap Up

Hi and howdy :))

It’s too hot. It’s been too hot for a couple of weeks now and I am melting 🥵. You’d think after 8 summers I’d be used to it but nope. I forget just how bad it get’s every year.

Anyways, to distract me from the heat, today I am going to be talking about the books I read in June.

June was a weird month for me. I had a lot going on: my drivers test, an exam that was literally going to decide my future, and then just a lot of everyday boring life stuff I had to help with. All that being said though, I’m really happy with the 11 books I read!

Of course, it was Pride Month so I tried my best to get to a wide range of LGBTQ+ books. Normally at this point in the year I’m super busy with end of year exams so I don’t get to participate as much as I’d like so I’m glad I had that chance this year.

Blog, book haul

I took the term “treat yo self” a little too far // Book Haul

Howdy-doodle-do and welcome to my blog :))

I was really trying not to procrastinate today. I was going to be motivated and productive and finally start studying … and then I started colour coordinating this book haul just because and have put off studying until later on this evening or probably ’til tomorrow. WHY AM I LIKE THIS?!?!

Continuing on with my procrastinating ways, today I’m going to be talking about 12 books I bought recently.

Looking at the list, 12 books seems like a lot, but I don’t feel bad about any of my purchases because most of them are e-books that I waited to buy until I saw them for a reduced price. Also, I take the term “treat yo self” as words to live by because buying these made me happy.


Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

I still don’t know how I feel about Alice Oseman’s books. Like any sane person I of course love Hearstopper, I literally finished binging the 4 available volumes this morning, but I’ve had mixed experiences with her novel. I wasn’t a huge fan of Solitaire but after reading it earlier this month I did enjoy I Was Born For This.

Clearly to get to the bottom of whether her books are for me or not, I’m going to have to read her other two currently published books: Loveless, which I already own and have read the first chapter or, and Radio Silence, which I picked up for just a couple of euros.

I don’t know much about this book. There’s Aled, who appears in the graphic novels and seems sweet, and Frances and a podcast which one of them makes and the other is a big fan of. I have enjoyed a couple of podcast related books so I’m excited about this one.

It’s Pride Month Bitches🌈// June TBR

Helloo, happy Monday :))

So I more or less had a TBR planned and ready and then I realised it was June, meaning it was pride month.

I’m not saying I only read LGBTQ+ books in July for pride, but I do try and give extra focus to books with LGBTQ+ representation, especially this year because usually I’m swamped with school but I have more time on my hands then normal now.

Anyways, remembering what month we were about to be in, I took a look at my planned TBR and … it turns out more or less all the books I wanted to read were LGBTQ+ book so literally nothing needed changing😂


The first book on my TBR was going to be I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman but … I finished reading that before writing this so we’re going to have to wait till July to find out my thoughts and feelings … or until I write a review. IDK yet.

My most anticipated releases of 2021 // April, May & June

Helloooo and howdy!!

As it currently stands I have not yet read any of the books that I featured on my list of anticipated releases for January, February & March but is that going to stop me from talking about more upcoming releases?

I’m actually really excited about the next three months worth of releases. There’s a lot more on here then originally expected, I kind of blanked on a few release dates and didn’t realise they were right around the corner. If I tried I could probably include a few more to be honest.


April

In Deep Waters by F.T Lukens

I’ve recently realised that I’ve never read a book about pirates. This is a crime! I plan to amend this as soon as possible, starting with reading In Deep Waters which follows a young prince who must rely on on a mysterious stranger when he’s kidnapped.

This seems to me like it’s going to be the perfect historical adventure novel with a possible LGBT+ romance at the helm.

I’m trying to not buy many physical books as I’m moving later on in the year but I may have to make an exception for THIS cover!!!

Release Date: April 20th

I’ve already got an “anticipated 2021” list – Someone please stop me😭

Hi and howdy and welcome to my blog.

I have made many, many posts talking at length about my anticipated 2020 releases. Currently as it stands I have read a few but nowhere near as many as I’d like to and yet here I am. With a list of 2021 releases I’m excited about.

👏Why👏Am👏I👏Like👏This?👏

I need to chill. Infact I need to stop entirely but I can’t!!! And so here’s six 2021 releases I’m highly anticipating already.black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12

the ravensThe Ravens by Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige

The theme of books named after birds that aren’t actually about birds is continuing on into 2021 it seems.

This book is sadly not about a flock of ravens, living their best life. It’s infact about a notorious sorority which is actually a coven of witches.

I love me a witch book and I’m really hoping I’ll love this.

Publication Date: January 5th Continue reading “I’ve already got an “anticipated 2021” list – Someone please stop me😭”

Anticipated Releases of 2020 // July- August- September

Hello and welcome to my blog!!

It’s that time again where I talk all about upcoming releases I would sell my soul for … even though I’ve barely read any of the books released so far in 2020 that I said I really wanted to read. Make that make sense.

To be honest the next three months are golden, in my eyes, for book releases. September, especially, is going to be a good month which is really annoying because of course all the books I want to read come out the same time I’m back in school!

Out of the books mentioned in my 2 previous “Anticipated 2020 releases” I have read a grand total of … *drum roll please* … 3 books! (Out of 18. One of which I had an ARC of and read at the end of 2019). God help me.

January-February-March // April-May-June


July

Loveless by Alice Oseman

42115981._SY475_By the time I’m writing this I’m pretty sure this book has already been released which is exciting.

Loveless follows a girl called Georgia as she starts university in a whole new town as she comes to terms and learns about being aromatic and asexual.

I’m hopefully starting university next year so I think this is going to be a book I can really connect to and relate to in so many ways.

I also really want to like an Oseman book as I wasn’t a huge fan of the last book I read from her.

Publication Date: July 9th

Books by Black Authors // My TBR

All I’ve done today is eat. Tacos for lunch (I had 2 but I could have eaten 10), fro-yo to celebrate seeing my friend for the first time since lockdown, tuna pasta salad, now a prepacked box of Cesar salad and now I’m planning a grilled cheese for midnight snack. What is happening! I’ve never eaten this much in my life. I literally ate half a sandwich yesterday and was fine!?!?!

I blame the tequila rose and caramel vodka shots I had last night. (I may be slightly hungover)

Anyways now that I’m fuelled up on literally all the food I am ready to talk about books I want to read!

Last week I “recommended” some books by black authors that I’ve already read and loved, in that post I linked various ways you can contribute to the Black Lives Matter movement so you can read that HERE, and today I’m going to talk about books by black authors on my TBR.

Intriguing 2019 Releases.

2019 is the year for amazing book releases and I am going to be so poor by the end of it all.

So a couple of Wednesdays ago I made a list of my most anticipated 2019 releases that I cannot wait for! But then I started reading and watching other peoples posts and I realised … I’m screwed.

And in the end I had to do another post with the six books I’d recently discovered because, although I don’t know much about most of them, I am so excited.
