Everything GrowsvsTestimony from Your Perfect Girl


EVERYTHING GROWS. With each letter Eleanor writes to her deceased bully, she discovers more about herself, even while trying to make sense of his death. And, with the help of a unique cast of characters, Eleanor not only learns what it means to be inside a body that does not quite match what she feels on the inside, but also comes to terms with her own mother’s mental illness. RELEASE DATE: May 7 2019.

TESTIMONY FROM YOUR PERFECT GIRL. Annie Tripp has everything she needs–Italian sweaters, vintage chandelier earrings, and elite ice skating lessons–but all that changes when her father is accused of scamming hundreds of people out of their investments. Annie knows her dad wasn’t at fault, but she and her brother are exiled to their estranged aunt and uncle’s house in a run-down part of Breckenridge–until the trial blows over. RELEASE DATE: May 14 2019.

Nocturna (A Forgery of Magic, #1)vsKings, Queens, and In-Betweens

NOCTURNA. Set in a Latinx-inspired world, a face-changing thief and a risk-taking prince must team up to defeat a powerful evil they accidentally unleashed. RELEASE DATE: May 7 2019.

👸🏽 👑 👸🏽

KINGS, QUEENS, AND IN-BETWEENS. Perpetually awkward Nima Kumara-Clark is bored with her insular community of Bridgeton, in love with her straight girlfriend, and trying to move past her mother’s unexpected departure. After a bewildering encounter at a local festival, Nima finds herself suddenly immersed in the drag scene on the other side of town. RELEASE DATE: May 7 2019.


Let Me Hear a RhymevsThese Witches Don't Burn

LET ME HEAR A RHYME. Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed. But that doesn’t mean that Quadir and Jarrell are okay letting their best friend Steph’s tracks lie forgotten in his bedroom after he’s killed—not when his beats could turn any Bed-Stuy corner into a celebration, not after years of having each other’s backs. RELEASE DATE: May 21 2019.

👸🏽 👑 👸🏽

THESE WITCHES DON’T BURN. Hannah’s a witch, but not the kind you’re thinking of. She’s the real deal, an Elemental with the power to control fire, earth, water, and air. But even though she lives in Salem, Massachusetts, her magic is a secret she has to keep to herself. If she’s ever caught using it in front of a Reg (read: non-witch), she could lose it. For good. When evidence of dark magic begins to appear all over Salem, Hannah’s sure it’s the work of a deadly Blood Witch. The issue is, her coven is less than convinced, forcing Hannah to team up with the last person she wants to see: her ex, Veronica. RELEASE DATE: May 28 2019.

  1. My votes are going to Nocturna and These Witches Don’t Burn. I’ve had them both on my wishlist for so long that it’s weird to think they’re actually coming out.

  2. I’m currently fighting off a book slump by rereading. You know those sword fights in Parent Trap or whatever? Picture me fighting off the book slump like that… 😉 Except it’d be the invisible air. I can’t choose what to read next though.

    1. Hahaha, you paint it like such a hopeless picture. But rereading is a great way to get through a slump. At least you’re reading. I’m still getting back into the book world after my hiatus, trying to remember what books are out/coming-out, so don’t look at me for suggestions yet!

      1. LOL it is a hopeless cause for me in a short amount of time now. If I finish a book before break at work I can’t immediately jump to a new one. 😭

        It’s ok! I did enjoy Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. I think that was the latest new to me book I enjoyed.
