I cannot fully articulate how much I loved this book. I didn’t sleep, I didn’t eat, and when I finished I had the overwhelming urge to just start it all over again to dampen the pain of waiting for the next book. (I did, in fact, start it again). It’s the kind of book that has your staring into space after you finish, unable to accept that it’s not real. It immediately made it into my favourite list; it is also highly possible it will be the best book I read this year. … More Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros│Review

There are a couple of thrillers which sound great, not my usual genre of choice, but I have definitely been swept up in the hype. … More June New Releases │ 2021

To make it more difficult for me all of these are books are 2021 new releases (so yes I am mostly going off blurb, cover, and previous works of the author, if I’ve read any).
