I’m so excited for this week’s witchy releases!!
This is a queer YA fantasy about a group of elemental witches. This follows Hannah who is dealing with a recent breakup. But dealing with her ex is put on hold when evidence of dark magic starts appearing.
I’ve heard amazing things about this author! This is a YA magical realism following Ruby who’s family has magical abilities – when the women come of age they have a vision of the person they’re with when they day.
Reading Update + TBR!
This was a crazy slow reading week, I only finished 1 book and am in the middle of 2 others.
1. Us (Him #2) by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I really wanted a quick, steamy romance to balance out City of Girls. And this definitely fit that bill! This series is so precious and so steamy. I’m sad to see it end! This is a M/M new adult romance following hockey players. I really appreciated that this book tackled tough topics, especially homophobia and depression. This was a wonderful duology, I highly recommend it.
1. City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
I’m about 1/3 of the way through this and I’m really enjoying it. It is historical literary fiction though so I’m moving a lot slower through it than normal.
2. The Last of August (Charlotte Holmes #2) by Brittany Cavallaro
I picked this up on Hoopla on a whim because I wanted an audiobook and needed a romance break (especially with all the romance I’ll be reading next month!) I’m about a third through this as well.
My goal for this week is to knock out some arcs and library books I have that don’t fit into my June TBR(s) – because readathons.
1. The First Mistake by Sandie Jones (E-arc/Edelweiss+)
2. Something Like Gravity by Amber Smith (E-arc/Netgalley)
3. Royals by Rachel Hawkins (Physical/Library)
4. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco (Physical/Library)
What are your reading plans for the week??
