New Books

First Tuesday of August Megalist!

Happy Tuesday, readers! If all has gone according to plan, I am presently relaxing on my reading vacation as you read this. It’s like a regular vacation except I don’t go anywhere, I just stay home and read as much as I can. I gathered up a HUGE pile of books in preparation, and I hope when I return next week that I will have a ton of great books to tell you about in the weeks to come. I hope you’re reading something wonderful right now too!

Now, for today’s bonanza of books: I loved several of today’s books, but there are still soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to check out, like The Night Singer by Johanna Mo, The President and the Frog by Carolina De Robertis, Savage Tongues by Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi. And as with each first Tuesday megalist, I am putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have had the chance to read and loved. You can also hear about several new releases on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Danika and I discussed When the Reckoning Comes, The Dead and the Dark, Damnation Spring, and more. Okay, get ready to click your little hearts out, because here come the books! – XO, Liberty
