So I know it’s the middle of September and it seems like an odd time to do a post like this, but it’s my birthday and I wanted to do an upbeat post and what’s better than the books I’m loving and I think you’ll all enjoy too? So here we go!
The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi
I was so lucky to get an ARC of this book because I really couldn’t handle the ending of the Gilded Wolves and well, the ending of this book wasn’t much better unfortunately. It comes out 22nd September so do keep a look out for it! And my review of it will be put up on my blog as well so you can check it out!
Tell Me How You Really Feel by Animah Mae Safi
Well, I’ve talked about this book a lot this year but a cute sapphic enemies-to-lovers romance, what more could you need in life? This book was so cute and sweet and now I kind of feel like rereading it.
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
Another great book which has diverse representation and is really soft and might just make you cry. I did find the difference in wealth a little awkward but it was also the setting of the story, so I kind of went along with it.
Darius The Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram
Okay, I know you’re all probably annoyed with me pushing this book in your faces BUT it is great and I just really want more people to read it because it had a huge impact on me. I just can never stop saying how awesome this book is, so just read it!
Small Town Hearts by Lillie Vale
I just finished reading this book 2 days ago, and wow. I loved Babe and just the entire timeline for the story because I was just there myself and I know how friends can grow apart but also come back together and reading this beautiful book just made me feel a lot and I ended up reading it all in just one sitting, oops. I may have a review for this up soon, so watch out!
The Henna Wars by Adib Jaigirdar
This is another book I’ve been talking a lot about, but for good reason! It’s really sweet and wonderful and I especially love the ending! Also, the author’s second book comes out next year and includes fake dating so yay!
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen
This coming of age novel was a little problematic but it’s message really stuck with me. I enjoyed reading it and watching the protagonist make stupid decisions and everything just get messed up, but also learning and standing up for herself and finding love, and that was wonderful.
Listen to your Herat by Kasie West
As always, an amazing novel by Kasie! It was so romantic and fun and filled with tension and I loved reading it! It made me smile and laugh and I needed that and I’m glad to have read this book.
Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
An amazing book with ace rep, which I haven’t read much of. I was glad to finally read this and understand a bit more about asexuality and what it means. Moreover, there’s an amazing romance and lots of fun and anticipation and cuteness, and I think you all should read this!
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
And a full circle as we’re back to her! Well, the book was a little hard to understand but a really fun read nonetheless and I enjoyed it. I was glad to have the next book with me, because with that ending, trust me, you’re going to need it! I really can’t wait for the finale to this series to come out!
That’s all for today! What are some of the books you’ve loved reading this year? Why? Let me know in the comments below.
