I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, which is a shame because I think they are just so much fun!
Along with that, I think that everyone should know that Nicola Yoon’s newest novel has a cover reveal TODAY, and I could not be more excited. She is one of my auto buy author’s, so I can guarantee that I will be preordering my copy as soon as it is available.

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
Winter by Marissa Meyer- If you aren’t new here, you KNOW how many TBRs this has been on (maybe 4 in the past 6 months?). Well, I have finally started the conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles! I don’t know why I waited so long because being back in this world with these characters has been so comforting. I am about 50% of the way through and feel like it might be a new favorite of mine.
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik- A few months ago I had said I wanted to give a few authors whose books I didn’t love in the past a second chance. So, I have been on the waitlist for this book for literally 4 months and finally got a copy. However, I have been so slumpy lately that I haven’t been able to sit down and read more than 20 pages at a time, so I’m not sure if I will be committing to finishing this right now. I have enjoyed what I’ve read so far, I just really need a break from super complex, brand new fantasy worlds.
WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY FINISHED?
Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi- Roshani Chokshi was another author I wanted to give a second chance to after not loving The Star Touched Queen. I did enjoy this book significantly more than that one, even, though I felt like it dragged a bit (especially for a middle grade novel). However, I loved the Hindu mythology in this so much, and would definitely consider reading the rest of the series if I want to read some more middle grade.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur- I am in a poetry writing class right now, which is a struggle because I have never read poetry outside of class ever. So, I am trying to expose myself to more poetry (if you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments). I really enjoyed most of this, it was a quick read, and it made me reflect on life. I don’t think I would go back and ponder over it, but overall it was a good reading experience.
WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
When I tell you I have literally no idea what I’ll be reading next, I mean it. I have been so slumpy and so I have really just been picking up the books I am in the mood to read at that time. But, here are a few I would ideally like to get to by next week:
We Want Our Bodies Back by Jessica Care Moore- For my literary publishing class we had to pick out a book of poetry to review, and this is the one I picked out. I came across it at a bookstore over the summer and thought it looked really interesting, hence why I picked it for my project.
Rules for Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell and Katie Cotugno- I honestly put in a hold for this audiobook quite randomly, and it expires in 10 days. I have heard good things about this book so once I am done listening to Winter I will probably pick this up.
