Probably one of my favorite gifts to receive is honestly an Amazon giftcard. I love Barnes & Noble and going shopping in a physical bookstore, but now that I’m financially independent and have to save more money, I’ve been turning to online book shopping a lot more, and Amazon often has better deals on physical copies of books than B&N does, honestly. There are a bunch of great books coming out between April and May that I really want and have been on my wishlist since foreeeeever, and today I’m going to share some that I’d really like to preorder:
A Court of Frost & Starlight – Sarah J. Maas
To be fair, I haven’t even read the most recently published book in the series, ACOWAR, yet, and am currently in the process of rereading the second book, ACOMAF. I honestly probably won’t even be done with ACOWAR by the time this book is released, but I know I’m going to read it and will thus be in want of the fourth book as soon as book 3 is complete. It’ll be so nice that I won’t have to wait a year or more in between book releases this time since I procrastinated so much on this series. I love, love, love this series and am so looking forward to rereading the romance bloom between Feyre and Rhysand, my ultimate OTP even though Rhysand is my one true book boyfriend.
Legendary – Stephanie Garber
I almost decided to wait with this one because I’m getting an ARC of it soon, but I decided that I really want to have a full Caraval collection. My ARCs and FCs will all look so pretty together on my newly organized bookshelves, which now highlight my collections. I am so stoked for another book from the Caraval world even though I loved the first book as a standalone because it was just so magically fabulous.
Leah on the Offbeat – Becky Albertalli
Honestly, I don’t remember Leah’s character at all from Simon, but I don’t care because she’s BISEXUAL and FAT and a MUSICIAN!! I’ve never seen myself so closely represented in a book and I’m so thrilled that Becky Albertalli is the author to give me that chance. I was a little disappointed with The Upside of Unrequited, but I am confident that I will adore Leah’s story.
The Way You Make Me Feel – Maurene Goo
This one is one I’m still debating whether I should buy or not since I do have an eARC. For some reason, TWYMMF is the full list price on both B&N and Amazon, which makes me a little hesitant to buy it right now because I have other books I want just as much that I don’t have the option of reading any other way. If it’s as amazing as I Believe in a Thing Called Love, I’ll definitely be buying it eventually when I have money to spare, but for now it’s still up in the air. However, I don’t see how a book about a girl who does pranks and has to work on a Korean food truck could be anything but good, so I have a feeling this one will make it to my shelves eventually.
