It’s a race against time to figure out who will spread the virus and how to stop him! This is an Asian-authored book!

What Kind of Girl by Alyssa B. Sheinmel – 4th Feb – This book sounds incredibly thought-provoking and reviews say that it discusses deep issues incredibly well. “It all started when Mike Parker’s girlfriend showed up with a bruise on her face. Or, more specifically, when she walked into the principal’s office and said Mike hit her.”
The Gravity Of Us by Phil Stamper – 4th Feb – I have been so excited for this book ever since I saw it on Twitter!!

Cal meets Leon, someone else who loves space, and starts falling for him (!!!)
The Last Confession of Autumn Casterly by Meredith Tate – 11th Feb – I’m really excited about this book because it sounds like a gripping thriller with plenty of twists! It is about Autumn, a drug dealer who goes missing, and her sister Ivy who has to look for her and may have to dig up some awful secrets.
Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon – 18th Feb – I am so excited for this book!! A retelling of Beauty and the Beast?! by an Indian-American author?! set in a boarding school?! with a character that is a misanthrope?! (shh i totally didn’t just google that… okay i did and it means a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society. so… i relate) I WILL SELL MY SOUL FOR THIS BOOK… jk. not really… unless…
The Upside of Falling by Alex Light – 18th Feb – This book is about Becca, a seventeen-year-old who pretends she’s dating and Brett, who doesn’t want to date anyone but overhears Becca’s lie and so they decide tO FAKE DATE. This is one of my fave tropes and i needed this book like a week ago!!
Foul Is Fair by Hannah Capin – 18th Feb – This is a Macbeth retelling (i think – 98% sure) and I am so here for this!! I loved reading Macbeth and this sounds awesome! a badass girl giving annoying boys what they deserve? hell yeah.
The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller – 25th Feb – ‘Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power: 1) Woo the Shadow King. 2) Marry him. 3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.’ That synopsis? it had me at woo! this sounds absolutely amazing! yes to powerful girls and stealing kingdoms and hopefully enemies to lovers!
