Happy end/beginning of the week! I never know which one Sunday is…
I read so many books this week! It’s been a while since I’ve been able to say that and oh it is so nice. When I made my short TBR last week and then five hours later decided to also participate in the Stranger Things readathon I was afraid I was setting myself up to enter a slump by putting too much pressure on myself. The odds were in my favorite though and instead I’ve been so motivated!
Here’s a look at the last Sunday Stacks TBR, how it went, and what I’m hoping to read this next week.
Also, did you notice that the seventeenth week of this series is being posted on the seventeenth day of the month? Because I did. And I love little coincidences like that.
It’s too early to give you a full review for Erin Hahn’s sophomore novel, More Than Maybe, but I will absolutely take this chance to tell you that sure it might not come out for six more months but you need to drop everything and pre-order this book right now. This book is everything. I’ve never made so many notes while reading a book before. I just really love it with all my heart and soul and I can’t wait until y’all get to meet Luke and Vada.
Oh, buddy, Coral by Sara Ella was one hundred times darker than I ever expected it to be – but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. There were some iffy things that made me a little uncomfortable but there are also some great discussions about mental health brought up within these pages. If you’re planning on read this one please just make sure you review the content/trigger warnings first. There’s some pretty graphic stuff. You can find everything in my full review.
I’m more than halfway through As Many Nows as I Can Get by Shana Youngdahl and it’s really incredible. It isn’t at all what I expected but in the best way possible. There are so many serious topics being brought up and discussed and it’s just jam packed with emotion. I’m really looking forward to finishing it and I think Youngdahl will end up being on my radar for a while.
This is definitely the book I’m most excited about reading this week. Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things by Jacqueline Firkins looks absolutely adorable and I’m ready to hand my heart over. It’s set during the summer before college which is one of my absolute favorite times for a story to take place. I have a feeling it will be the perfect read to remind me of summer now that it’s finally starting to get chilly outside.
I’m not a huge historical fiction fan at all but Ziggy, Stardust & Me by James Brandon sounds really interesting! It’s set during the 1970s, and I know that was 50ish years ago now, but it doesn’t feel like that long ago. I don’t know why I feel that way sine I wasn’t even close to being alive then but it just does okay? Anyway – this story sounds so unique and different and I’m really looking forward to taking it all in!
If y’all know anything at all about me it’s probably that fantasy and I don’t get a long – like ever. Sara B. Larson is one of those rare authors of the genre that I completely love though. The Defy series is absolutely beautiful and Dark Breaks the Dawn was amazing so I’m really looking forward to devouring Sisters of Shadow and Light. I’ll have a review for it after I read it but right now you can listen to the official book playlist and read the story behind the cover which is just *chef kiss* amazing.
What are you hoping to read this week? Let me know in the comments!
