What If It’s Us is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup of YA novels. It’s the perfect combination of co-authors Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. The Homo-Sapiens Agenda, The Upside of Unrequited) and Adam Silvera (More Happy Than Not, They Both Die At The End).
I’ve mentioned many times that I’m not typically a big fan of fantasy novels, but I try to read some here and there, so I added Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard to my TBR when researching bestsellers from the last few years. I am very glad I did.
Tiffany D. Jackson, author of YA thrillers Monday’s Not Coming and Allegedly, is back with Let Me Hear A Rhyme, a book that combines a thriller, Brooklyn, 90s rap music and three kids running a scam on a bunch of adults.
I really enjoyed Delilah S. Dawson’s Phasma, and I was excited to hear that that General Organa’s top spy, Vi Moradi, was going to appear in a sequel. Black Spire is also based upon the new Star Wars-themed Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
If you feel like Amazon, Facebook and Google are taking over more and more of your life… if it seems like they know what products you use and what content you consume… if you think we’re becoming cogs in their giant consumer mechanism, then you need to read Rob Hart’s The Warehouse.
I’ve followed author Chuck Wendig on social media for a while now, and I’m a faithful reader of his blog. I was intimidated by the 800-page length of his latest book, Wanderers, but given the overwhelmingly positive early reviews, I decided to give it a read. I am so glad I did!
