NEW RELEASES - APRIL 5

Hello everyone!

I am back with another week of new releases! This is the first of April's new books, and I have to say, they are setting a pretty good tone for the rest of the month! Let's get into them!

Alight by Scott Sigler

I read and loved the first book in The Generations Trilogy, Alive when it first came out, you can check out my full review here, and I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel! Plus, Scott Sigler is going to be at BookCon in May, so I'm hoping to get my book signed!

Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins

Another sequel, this is the finale to the Rebel Belle trilogy! I loved the first book, but didn't love the second one. I'm hoping this book is a strong finish for what started as a great trilogy! You can read my review of book one, Rebel Belle here!

Boys of Summer by Jessica Brody

I recently stumbled across this book on Goodreads and it looks like the quintessential summer read, told the perspective of three male characters. Based solely on the fact that there's THREE male POVs in a contemporary, that should be enough to pick up the book! But seriously, the synopsis sounds really interesting and I'm not gonna turn away that cover ;)

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

I don't know why, but I cannot stop thinking about that cover! I remember seeing this cover forever ago and I can't stop thinking about the heart shaped waffles! The story itself seems fairly unique, a little bit of mystery... although my money is on the "pretentious teenage son" of her "stepmonster" being the SN... who knows? Seriously though, this book has a pile of 5 star ratings and an average rating of 4.28/5.00!

My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul

I got the opportunity to read this book for review, and actually my review just went up yesterday, so check out that review for more of my thoughts but I really enjoyed it! It's another male narration and it goes so much deeper than just a guy almost burning down a house asking a girl to prom.

Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

I haven't really heard much about this book in particular, but I have heard about this author. This story is supposed to be an A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickins retelling, and so far, the reviews haven't been stellar but I do have an eARC that I will be reading soon. Hopefully it turns out better than the mediocre reviews!

Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about this book, but I have yet to hear any thoughts on it. From the synopsis, it seems a little to Divergent-y for my tastes, but who knows? Goodreads reviews are all over the place, from DNFing to full on 5 stars. If the author's name sounds familiar, that's because she is the author of P.S. I Still Love You, the one that was made into a movie with the ghost of Gerald Butler, and Love, Rosie, also made into a movie. This is her debut into YA, so who knows how it will turn out.

Away We Go by Emil Ostrovski

I haven't really heard anything about this book, but it sounds very interesting! The ratings aren't the greatest, but the story is a crazy mix of realistic contemporary fiction, dystopian and LGBT+. It could either end very good, or very confusing!

So that's it for this week! Lots of great new books to pick up!!
