Hello, book lovers! 💕
There aren’t many books that I want to get to this month, and I’m thinking about reading mostly YA contemporary books. I guess it was because I finished last month reading Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed, and I’ve been in the mood for those kind of books. And none of these are in any particular order. I’m mostly a mood reader, and I honestly don’t know if I’ll want to read these when I get around to them. You never know what I will want to read in a couple of weeks.
And being that I’ve been addicted to my Nintendo Switch lately, I have been having trouble reading. But I’m really hoping to get to these books this month.
I recently checked out a couple of books from the library, both of which are YA books that were just released in February. Those books are Of Curses and Kisses by Sandya Menon and The Upside of Falling by Alex Light. I wasn’t expecting to get to these since they are new releases, and I didn’t think they would become available right away. But since they did, I probably will get to them first. Knowing they have a deadline, I need to get to them before I have to return them.
I don’t know much about these two books, but I’ve read all of Sandhya Menon’s books. And I’ve really liked those, so I figured I would enjoy that one too. From what I could tell, it’s set at an elite international boarding school and that it’s a contemporary spin on Beauty and the Beast.
The Upside of Falling wasn’t one that I heard of, but I saw it on a publisher’s Instagram and was intrigued. And when I looked up the summary, I was even more intrigued. It follows seventeen-year-old Becca Hart who hadn’t believed in true love in years, but her former best friend teases her about not having a boyfriend. So she impulsively pretends she’s been seeing someone. And Brett Wells overhears her lie, so he decides to step in and be that someone.
Let’s just say, I’m probably going to really enjoy those two books, since they have some of my favorite elements in them. Like boarding schools. And the main characters pretending to date then ultimately falling for each other.
Those are the main books that I want to get to this month. The next books are ones that I’m thinking about getting to, but I’m not sure if I will.
I’ve had Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore on my TBR for a few months now. I got it in the Book of the Month club subscription box, and I haven’t had a chance to read it. I really don’t know why that is. It might be because it’s a historical romance. I don’t usually read historical fiction, so maybe that’s why I’ve been putting it off. From what I know from Goodreads, it follows a fiercely independent vicar’s daughter taking on a powerful duke in a love story that threatens to upend the British social order. So I was basically sold with that. I’m a sucker for a strong female main character in a romance book. And I’d give the historical aspect of the book a try.
I really want to get to the next volume of One Piece by Eiichiro Oda since I’m slowly making my way through that manga series. Like seriously, it’s almost 100 volumes long, and I’m only a quarter of the way through it. I’ll probably reading them for the rest of my life. But I’m not mad about that. I’m currently on volume 24, People’s Dreams. If I get through that this month, I might try to get through volume 25 too. They’re pretty quick reads, and I could (well, I should) read more than just one volume.
So those are the books that I want to get to this month. I’m not sure if I’ll get to all of them. But it’s only three full books and a couple manga volumes. I shouldn’t have any trouble getting through all of them. But who knows what this next month will bring.
What books do you guys plan on reading this month? Are you planning on reading any of these too? I’d love to know in the comments below!
