Ayyy yooo! Yeah I’ve been inactive, but I’m a student and I finally have some time to work on this blog! I’m so excited because I have so many ideas for posts.
So I’ve really been looking at some sweet books coming out this summer and I’m getting really excited. These are in no particular order and I tried to narrow it down to just three!
- This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab — July 5th, 2016
So, I’m about to get real with you guys. I’ve only read one book by Victoria Schwab, and it was the first book of The Archived series. For some reason I never picked up the next book in the series, but I remember the first book being really good.
Here is a summary from Schwab’s website:
This Savage Song tells the story of two teens in a broken world, where violent acts start breeding actual monsters. Some are shadows with teeth that feed on flesh and bone. Some are corpses that feed on blood. And some can pass for human. Those rare creatures feed on souls.
It’s the story of Kate Harker, the only daughter of a crime boss, and August Flynn, the son of a man trying to hold his city together. Kate is a human who wants to be a monster, and August a monster who wishes he were human.
Uhh cool right?! I have a feeling that this one will creep me out, but in a good way. I believe this is going to be a series, but again I’m not sure.
2. A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody — August 2nd, 2016
Okay, if you all know me, I LOVE a good chick lit. I breeze through them and its a fun little treat from something like fantasy (which I’ve been reading a lot of recently). I don’t know about you, but when I’m at the beach, I want something fun! I spend like all day on the beach so I tend to bring 3 or 4 of them to go through. Even though I won’t be at the beach in August, this will be a nice pool read!
Here is a summary from Brody’s webpage:
When I made the wish, I just wanted a do-over. Another chance to make things right. I never, in a million years, thought it might actually come true…
Sixteen-year-old Ellison Sparks is having a serious case of the Mondays. She gets a ticket for running a red light, she manages to take the world’s worst school picture, she bombs softball try-outs and her class election speech (note to self: never trust a cheerleader when she swears there are no nuts in her bake-sale banana bread), and to top it all off, Tristan, her gorgeous rocker boyfriend suddenly dumps her. For no good reason!
As far as Mondays go, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And Ellie is positive that if she could just do it all over again, she would get it right. So when she wakes up the next morning to find she’s reliving the exact same day, she knows what she has to do: stop her boyfriend from breaking up with her. But it seems no matter how many do-overs she gets or how hard Ellie tries to repair her relationship, Tristan always seems bent set on ending it. Will Ellie ever figure out how to fix this broken day? Or will she be stuck in this nightmare of a Monday forever?
From the author 52 Reasons to Hate My Father and The Unremembered trilogy comes a hilarious and heartwarming story about second (and third and fourth and fifth) chances. Because sometimes it takes a whole week of Mondays to figure out what you really want.
Like I said, something sort of low-stakes and kind of mindless for lack of a better word.
3. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling — July 31st, 2016
Uh, this is obvious, sorry (not sorry). I know this is a play and everything but yeah, I’m still buying it and reading it in one day WITH NO SHAME.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
AHHHHHHHH. I’m so pumped everyone. I’m just…yeah no words.
So that’s only three, but I plan to be updating it every once in a while. Please let me know what you are excited for!
