Physical Review Copies:

* requested before my ARC ban went into effect
*** graphic novels are an exception to the ARC ban since they’re such quick reads and I don’t request many of them!

  • *** Yuri is My Job! #1 — Miman
    • adult romance manga; this is a yuri manga about… a cafe where the waitresses pretend to be schoolgirls? I don’t know, the synopsis actually sounds pretty sketch, but a lot of the reviews made it sound great!
  • * Immunity — Erin Bowman
    • YA sci-fi/horror; OH MAN. I loved Contagion so much and I can’t wait to get back into this world!
  • *** Hitorijime My Hero, Vol. 1 — Memeko Arii
    • adult romance manga; this is a yaoi story between, I think, a gangster and a high school teacher falling for each other.
  • *** Gleipnir, Vol. 1 — Sun Takeda
    • adult horror manga; I only requested this because it’s horror and the cover looked neat, but it gets pretty bad ratings, so we’ll see.
  • *** The Quintessential Quintuplets, Vol. 1 — Negi Haruba
    • YA contemporary manga; this one just sounded super fluffy and cute, and I love the art style on the cover.
  • *** 10 Dance, Vol. 1 — Inouesatoh
    • adult romance manga; a yaoi manga about a dancing competition!
  • No One Here is Lonely — Sarah Everett
    • YA contemporary/sci-fi; when Eden’s crush dies, she’s able to keep talking to him through a company that uploads people’s voices, emails, and interactions to create an AI of them after they pass away.


Digital Review Copies:


  • * Full Disclosure — Camryn Garrett (october 2019)
    • YA contemporary; this is a story about an HIV+ teen dealing with life and bullying in a community that misunderstands her entire existence. I’ve been dying to read this and am probably going to go ahead and pick it up ASAP!


Kindle Purchases/Freebies:

  • Nothing this week!


Physical Purchases & Gifts:


  • DEV1AT3 — Jay Kristoff
    • YA sci-fi; I haven’t finished my eARC yet (oops), but that didn’t make me any less excited for my pre-order to show up.


Library & Kindle Unlimited Borrows:

  • Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too — Jomny Sun
    • adult graphic novel/comic; I don’t even know how to class this. it’s just panels of really precious, wholesome little comics and I’m very excited.
  • Shout — Laurie Halse Anderson
    • YA nonfic; LHA’s personal assault survival story, told in poetry. Oof, let me prepare myself for this one.
  • Goldie Vance, Vol. 2 — Hope Larson
    • YA mystery graphic novel; I wasn’t going to rush to pick up volume 2 until I remembered we had gotten 1-4 to add to our collection at work, so why not?
  • Outer Order, Inner Calm — Gretchen Rubin
    • adult nonfic; why am I obsessed with books about cleaning and de-cluttering lately?
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses — Sarah J. Maas (AUDIO REREAD)

        1. I am also looking forward to Unpregnant, which is about abortion! I have review copies of both of them and I am looking forward to seeing how they deal with these topics.

    1. I read a premise that sounds really similar to No One Here is Lonely a few weeks ago! It sounds like it will be a heart-wrenching read! And Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is super cute! I hope you enjoy reading it!

      1. Everyone’s A Aliebn was so precious! It made me cry a few times just over how wholesome and sweet it was. I kind of want to get a copy and wallpaper a wall with the pages just to inspire myself. ?
