On My List (2)

I love Jamie’s New to the Queue feature because it highlights new things she’s added to her different “to do/ read/ watch/ etc.” lists. This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, and other things to make it on my list. Unreleased    The Summer of Broken Things by Margaret Peterson Haddix | Hidden secrets? International travel? A popular girl and a not-so-popular girl coming together? Alllll of that. Give me it. I don’t think I actually read this author back when everyone else did, so we’ll see how I fare. Things a Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls | I’ve been trying to add more historical fiction to my TBR and this seems like a fun start. Rallies, marches, and early feminism are right up my alley (in terms of reading books in general but also if I were to branch more into historical fiction). Turn it Up by Jen Calonita | This cover is just so cute, I couldn’t resist. I generally liked the books I read by Jen Calonita so I hope this one is even better. I don’t care too much about music-oriented books but this girl-centered a cappella group could be fun? We’ll see! Published    Haven Point series by RaeAnne Thayne | I loved Hannah’s review round-up about this series recently and immediately added it to my TBR. I love cozy holiday stories, especially when they’re companion stories set in a small town. I seem to be addicted […]

I love Jamie’s New to the Queue feature because it highlights new things she’s added to her different “to do/ read/ watch/ etc.” lists. This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, and other things to make it on my list. Unreleased    Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave | I’ve owned a copy of this author’s debut but haven’t sat down to read it yet, for whatever reason. I saw this one and requested it immediately from Netgalley, so we’ll see how I feel! I love books about celebrities and big secrets being revealed, plus this cover is so summery! Another Place by Matthew Crow | I’ve been on a mystery/thriller kick lately. I love the idea of someone returning home to a not-so-quiet-anymore small town. I don’t often read male authors in YA for a few reasons, so it’ll be interesting to see the “lost girls” premise written by one… RIP Eliza Hart by Alyssa Sheinmel | So again, the mystery thing comes into play. Add in old friends being reunited (one of them being the one who dies), plus boarding school? Totally in. I can’t wait to see what the hell happened to Eliza!  Published    Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson | Any book involving the Hamptons will probably make it on my TBR. Have I even been there before? No. I just love the idea of beachy/island towns. The Forbidden Garden by Ellen Herrick | First of all, perfect cover. […]
