My July TBR

Hey guys! My July TBR is coming to you a little late but better late than never. I’ve been really indecisive about what I’ve been wanting to pick up lately. A part of me wants to read thrillers/mysteries but then the other part of me wants to switch it up. I also torn between backlisted books and new releases. So as you can see I’m a bit all over the place. So this is just books I’ve been really eying lately and have been wanting to pick up. I already read one and am currently reading another so not off to a bad start. Anyway let’s dive in! Continue reading “My July TBR”

I did end up reading a little more in June than I did in May so I’m happy about that. I am still behind with some books I wanted to read. I do hope I’m able to catch up in July. My July TBR will be out soon. Anyway let’s jump in to what I read in June. Continue reading “My June Wrap-up”

My June TBR

Hey guys! It’s time for me to post my June TBR. I ended up not reading most of what I wanted to in May. I’m not sure what it was but I wasn’t in a mood to read. I’m not sure if it had to do with April where I forced myself to read books I wasn’t feeling but my reading slowed down a lot. It’s currently June 6th and I haven’t picked up anything to read yet. I guess I’m in a little bit of a slump which is a sad. I’m hoping I can get myself out of this cause I have a good amount of books I want to read. So let’s dive in and hope I get to these.

Why I Need This Book: Well last year I read Ace of Shades and ended up falling in love with the series. It ended up being such a fun and exciting read. Well finally the sequel is out in a week and I can’t wait for you to read it. I was lucky enough to get an e-arc of it. It was really good. I am hoping to have a review for it up on Friday. So look out for that. Prepare for a wild ride.


Hot Dog GirlHot Dog Girl By Jennifer Dugan

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, LGBT, Romance
Pages: 320 pages
Release Date: April 30 2019
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Plot: Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:

* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

Jennifer Dugan’s sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love–and themselves–in unexpected people and unforgettable places.

Why I Need This Book: So this book was an automatic add to the TBR when I saw the cover. A girl dressed up as a giant hot dog, sign me up. Then I read the plot and it seems it takes place at an amusement park which I am always down for. This just sounds like a fun fluffy read. I am here for it.


Have you gotten to read these early? If so what are your thoughts on them? If not, are you guys interested in picking these books up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for them to come out!

But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.
