Welcome to the second part of this post about YA books that are either out or coming out out in the next six months. You’ll have to stay tuned to see if I read them though!
What If It’s Us
What If It’s Us has been teased a lot on my Twitter feed, I follow authors Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera on social media, and also BEA/Book Con which was last week in New York City (one day, I’ll go). It doesn’t come out for a while, but you can pre order it now .
The book is a queer love story set in New York City with the main characters being Ben and Arthur. Ben is a dreamer who recently sent his boyfriend’s things back to him and Arthur is new to the city trying to fit in. Will they make it, or will it just run its course? You’ll just have to pick it up and read it (as will I).
The Exact Opposite of Okay
I owe it to my favourite BookTuber, Sasha Alsberg, for tweeting about this book by Laura Steven, for my want to read this book. Where do you guys get ideas from? Mine come from social media quite a bit since I started following YA authors.
Any way, back to the book, it is about an eighteen-year-old girl, Izzy, who finds out the hard way the way we as a society treat young women after she is found in a compromising position with a politician’s son on a bench. With her best friend, Ajita, and nachos, as the slut shaming intensifies, Izzy really sees how the world treats young women. Buy here.
A Thousand Perfect Notes
Okay, if you aren’t following author C.G. Drews, what are you doing?? Her Twitter posts are my daily laugh and you should totally follow her. Which is why she is here on my list to read.
The book is about a boy called Beck, he hates his life, his mother and the piano he plays day after day. He wants to compose his music. It is a painful existence and then he meets August. August is full of hope and light, but will Beck reach for it? Buy here.
This book is another that has kept on popping up in my feed of late (I love seeing the love that YA authors have for each other) and is one I most definitely want to read. I believe it is a series, author Dhonielle Clayton recently announced the second book.
The Belles takes place in New Orleans with the main character Camellia wanting to be the favorite Belle- someone chosen by the Queen to tend to the family- but she soon realizes that all is not as it seems. Secrets lurk within the halls and favors are asked that could change everything. Buy here.
These are just some I really want to read. But some mentions also go to A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas and Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare which comes out in December. Also I must mention The Hate U Give movie that comes out in October, I am so excited for that movie.
So what are you guys reading. And thank you so tuning in week after week, my website will be changing in the next few months, so stay tuned for that. What book(s) are you guys waiting to read?
Until next time.
