Hey Night Owls! I can’t believe that May begins tomorrow. Where did the time go? This will be a busy month for me, but of course I plan to read many books. Well at least I’ll try to read many books. So in between my preparing for my AP Exam and studying for the SAT I’ll fit in as many books as I can.
- Scream All Night by Derek Millman
This book happens to come out on my birthday July 24th! I was kindly sent a copy by the author for review. Thank you so much Derek! In this novel we follow a 17-year-old boy who gets sucked back into his family’s movie studio after getting emancipated three years ago. There are supposed to be a ton of references to horror movies so I’m excited. I’m quite the pop culture fiend. You’ll should get a review as soon as I’m finished!
- Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
It’s happening! We finally get to read more of Leah from Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. In the book, Leah is struggling to tell her friends that she’s bisexual. As her friend group seems to be falling apart Leah starts to realize she is falling for one of them. This is second my most anticipated reads of the year. It would be my first, but we all know that it’s Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare.
- Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
I’m taking a big step here because this is an adult novel. I’ve been told to read this book so many times. We follow Libby Day who survived an infamous murder where her mother and two sisters died. She testified that her older brother was the killer. Twenty five years later, a secret society obsessed crimes, find Libby and try to find proof that would free her brother. Libby is back to square one, on the run from a killer. I’ve picked up the audiobook on Overdrive because I heard that it has a full cast. I’ve never listened to an audiobook with a full cast.
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I need to read this for school. I think I’m really going to enjoy this novel because I’ve really enjoyed his short stories. In this novel we follow the rich Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan during the Jazz Age. I’m going to listen to the audiobook and read along, too.
