So Many Books Getting Released Today??

As I scroll through bookish contents on various social media, I take note of future releases I might be interested in, and add them on my TBR, or preorder them sometimes if I see a sequel to a series of books I like, a book I’ve been anticipating, or simply something that seems right up my alley. And recently, everything I seem to be potentially interested in has been announced for TODAY, and let me tell you I’m really excited because I have preordered the hell out of those books!

First, there’s Vengeful by V. E. Schwab, the sequel to Vicious. I am dying to read it, so of course I preordered that one. Vicious was originally published in 2013, and I read it back in 2016, so this sequel was long awaited! If you want to check out my review, by the way, it’s here.

Then there’s Hank Green’s first book An Absolutely Remarkable Thing which seems right up my alley, for starters because is seems to deal with social media and I love books talking about that, and overall just because it’s Hank Green and he’s fantastic.

And then there’s my latest find, an Alice in Wonderland retelling (and I know I love those) which is called A Blade So Black, by L. L. McKinney. I don’t really know what to expect of that one, but it definitely seems cool, and it’s probably waiting for me on my Kindle by now!

Honorary mention: What if it’s us? by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I know, I know, this one is not getting released today, but October 9th is still pretty soon, and I felt like this post was the right place to tell you how excited I was about this collaboration!

Basically, it’s a themed readathon with 12 different themes matching the different Hogwarts school subjects and different O.W.L.s that students are taking during their 5th year.
