Judging Books By Their Covers: July 2020 Releases

The old saying goes “Don’t judge a book by the cover” but that’s what we are here to do. Every month, I pick some books with pretty covers and then I show the ones with best blurbs to you. Basically, I spend a lot of time on Netgalley, and scouring the Internet for new releases,… Continue reading Judging Books By Their Covers: July 2020 Releases

More Than Meets the Eye: Beach Read by Emily Henry

“Happy. Not giddy or overjoyed, but that low, steady level of happiness that, in the best periods of life, rides underneath everything else, a buffer between you and the world you are walking over.” Beach Read was one of the most popular releases of this year, everyone was talking about it, and it naturally caught… Continue reading More Than Meets the Eye: Beach Read by Emily Henry

Everyone is Annoying: All Adults Here by Emma Straub

I have to say that stories like All Adults Here always draw me in, despite all of them sounding really similar. Give me a family struggling with life and (mostly) with each other and I will eat it up. Suburban and small-town drama always does it for me, and books that go deep into familial… Continue reading Everyone is Annoying: All Adults Here by Emma Straub

Grief & Family: Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

It has everything I love in stories… Continue reading Grief & Family: Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

Women’s Prize Reviews #8: How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee

"My body kept time and I watched it as if observing a strange life form." How We Disappeared was one of the books on the longlist I categorized as very low priority, because I am entirely not a historical fiction person, especially when the book is focused on World War II. I just have a… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #8: How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee
