Hello, all! Today I bring to you a library book haul (the first one of springtime!). It is a small but mighty one, as all four books I checked out are ones that I am super excited to pick up and read! I have my trail mix, I have the sun shining in through my window, I'm ready for a little library haul!
Ingenue (Flappers, #2) by Jillian Larkin: So, I read the first book, Vixen, last year and enjoyed it way more than a) I was expecting to and, b) I probably should have. Either way, it was so much fun and I just whipped through it without putting it down. I'm hoping this second book in the trilogy will be just as engaging! It's basically Gossip Girls set in the 1920s, with flapper girls, and speakeasies, and the struggles of being in an interracial relationship at that point in time, and I really like it.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: This book went all around the book-ternet (book internet? Bookweb? Who knows.) a couple of months ago, and it was one that I really wanted to read because I've heard nothing but good things. And now, finally, I can! (Though I'm a little nervous, because what if I don't like it?) It's set during World War II, and has something to do with a maritime accident, and that's all I know. I kind of want to go in blind though.
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury: Two words: Aladdin Retelling. And, the genie is a girl named Zahra who I assume from the synopsis ends up falling in love with Aladdin? I've just never read a retelling of this before, and it was one of my favorite tales from the Arabian Nights, as well as one of my favorite Disney movies! This might be the one I'm most excited for at the moment, it just sounds right up my alley and the Average Rating of Goodreads is above 4 stars, so *crosses fingers hopefully*.
Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1) by Susan Dennard: This one has been so hyped up since BEA last year, so I am glad I'll get a chance to read it! Again, it sounds so up my alley. YA HIGH FANTASY WITH FEMALE FRIENDSHIP. YES PLEASE. Oddly enough, ever since it was released, I've been seeing more and more 3-star reviews, but I'm hoping that I will be blown away and maybe even discover a new favorite series!
Tell me if you have read any of these books, how you liked them! And which one I should get to first!
Until next time, happy reading!
