WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
A Chorus Rises by Bethany C. Morrow- I read A Song Below Water last year, and honestly didn’t enjoy it all that much. I requested this ARC without knowing it was the sequel. This picks up right where book 1 left off, and so far it is okay, but I don’t think it will be a new favorite.
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett- After reading and enjoying Serious Moonlight a few months ago, I decided to pick up pretty much all of Jenn Bennett’s books because I need more contemporary on my shelves. I have heard really great things about Starry Eyes, and so far I really like it! It follows a group of teenagers going on a summer camping trip, and is a perfect summer read so far.
Emma by Jane Austen- There are a few classics I wanted to get to before school starts up again, Emma being one of them. I have never seen the movie, so this story is brand new to me. I am making my way through this slowly, but am enjoying it so far!
WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY FINISHED?
A Pho Love Story by Loan Le- I’ve seen really mixed things about this book, but I really liked it! This is very reminiscent of Meet Cute, following the children of two rival restaurants. The Vietnamese culture in this novel was definitely what stood out the most. I do think it did drag on a bit, though.
Namesake by Adrienne Young- Can we talk about this cover? I am obsessed. This is the sequel to Fable, which I unfortunately liked more than its sequel. This was just a really slow paced book. The plot was essentially seeing who could obtain the most power, and I just didn’t care that much. There were also so many characters who all just kind of blended together in my head.
WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
What a great question! I have no idea what I’ll be reading next, but here are some possibilities.
Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q Sutanto- My friend read this recently and loved it, so I requested a hold from my local library! I believe this is a murder mystery romcom, where the main character has to ask her aunts to help her hide a body. The blurb says this book dives into Chinese-Indonesian culture, which sounds super interesting as well!
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo- This has literally been on my TBR since it came out, and is on my must-read list for summer. This is an enemies-to-lovers Little Mermaid retelling, which is all I needed to know before picking it up.
