New Books

First Tuesday of August Megalist!

It’s the first Tuesday of the month! You know what that means: it’s time to cram more titles into your TBR! Woohoo. Best day is best. There are a lot of great things to check out today. And because I love you, I made you a big shiny list below, and you can hear about more amazing books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about Hollow Kingdom, The Right Swipe, The Vexations, and more.

(And like with each megalist, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have had the chance to read and loved. It has been slow reading for me the last few months, so I haven’t read as many as I wished, but I did get to a few of today’s books. And there are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
