Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I was not expecting to receive an eARC of this book, and I’m still a little shocked that I did. 😱 Aurora Rising is one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it ever since I finished Obsidio — the third and final book in Kaufman and Kristoff’s Illuminae Files series. (FYI: If you pre-order Aurora Rising and fill out this form, you’ll receive an exclusive Illuminae Files novella!)
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
Even though spring is finally here, I’m always in the mood for a dark and monstrous story. Herman’s debut novel promises an eerie, close-knit town, teenagers with otherworldly powers, and a beast lurking in the woods, trapped in what is known as “the Gray.” And if that doesn’t lure you in, maybe the spook-tastic cover will.
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren + The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
Whenever I’m feeling especially anxious, I try to revisit favorite books — especially feel-good romances. Last year, I fell head over heels in love with both Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating and The Kiss Quotient. And now that I’m in desperate need of a pick-me-up, I think it’s time for some rereads. ❤️
Aru Shah and the End of Time + Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokshi
Aru Shah and the End of Time completely exceeded my expectations, so I’m excited to see what Aru and Mini are up to in the sequel, Aru Shah and the Song of Death. There’s magical thievery, zombies, new friends, unexpected enemies, and… maybe even a middle school dance! I’m sure Aru is thrilled. 😂
