This is by no means a comprehensive list and I’m only featuring books that already have covers. So you know I’m missing out on a ton for the second half of the year, but you know what that means….another post then about those books!
Woven in Moonlight – Jan. 7th
Woven in Moonlight is a story about revenge, but not in the conventional sense. When we are motivated by our thirst for vengeance, what happens when we realize that the fuel we hold in our heart only has the possibility to burn our home down? I’ve been reading a lot of books about characters motivated by their pursuit of revenge, but Woven in Moonlight is a vastly different creature. Grounded both in magic, but also colonialization, this ownvoices Bolivian fantasy is a story that examines the truth, what light we see ourselves and our enemies in.
Foul is Fair – Feb 4th
Foul is Fair is a five star re-telling for sure! It’s a bloody story of revenge. Of girls having enough. Being told to be silent. And having the justice system fail. I fell in love with Foul is Fair from page one. It starts with a scene of revenge, black box hair dye, and the claws we put on in the morning.
The Sound of Stars – Feb 25th
Can a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music work together to save humanity? This road trip is truly out of this world! A beautiful and thrilling read for fans of Marie Lu and Veronica Roth.
I’m currently reading this one and I really like it so far! I can’t wait to finish!

The Henna Wars – May 12th
When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this rom com about two teen girls with rival henna businesses.
The Gilded Ones – May 26th
