Now that we are officially halfway through the year, I thought it would be a perfect time to share my favourites books of 2021 so far with you all. I've read 54 books at the time of writing this blog post and wanted to share my top 10 so far. I'm going to split this into two posts with 5 books on each post. Here is part one of my favourite books of 2021 so far!
Cello prodigy Jenny has one goal: to get into a prestigious music conservatory. When she meets mysterious, handsome Jaewoo in her uncle’s Los Angeles karaoke bar, it’s clear he’s the kind of boy who would uproot her careful plans. But in a moment of spontaneity, she allows him to pull her out of her comfort zone for one unforgettable night of adventure…before he disappears without a word.
I have always had books on pre-order but I think this past year has made me pre-order books even more which is bad for my bank but wonderful for my TBR. I have quite a few things on pre-order at the minutes and wanted to share them with you. Here is what I have on pre-order at the minute!
w be a monthly thing where I share what I have added to my Netgalley TBR but I am not complaining. I've added quite a few books to it in the past month. There have been so many incredible books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place I've found so many new authors. Here is what is currently on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
strangest thing occurs one otherwise ordinary afternoon: She witnesses a couple kiss and is overcome with a vision of how their romance began . . . and how it will end. After all, even the greatest love stories end with a broken heart, eventually.
Everyone likes Humaira "Hani" Khan—she’s easy going and one of the most popular girls at school. But when she comes out to her friends as bisexual, they invalidate her identity, saying she can’t be bi if she’s only dated guys. Panicked, Hani blurts out that she’s in a relationship…with a girl her friends absolutely hate—Ishita "Ishu" Dey. Ishu is the complete opposite of Hani. She’s an academic overachiever who hopes that becoming head girl will set her on the right track for college. But Ishita agrees to help Hani, if Hani will help her become more popular so that she stands a chance of being elected head girl.
May seems to have lasted a lifetime and I've read quite a few books. Throughout May, I have read a total of 11 books, which I am proud of! So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post! I have some thoughts that I wanted to share on the books I read throughout May. Here is a post that is full of mini reviews for the books I read in May!
Izumi Tanaka has never really felt like she fit in—it isn’t easy being Japanese American in her small, mostly white, northern California town. Raised by a single mother, it’s always been Izumi—or Izzy, because “It’s easier this way”—and her mom against the world. But then Izzy discovers a clue to her previously unknown father’s identity… and he’s none other than the Crown Prince of Japan. Which means outspoken, irreverent Izzy is literally a princess.
Waylon Russell Brewer is a fat, openly gay boy stuck in the small West Texas town of Clover City. His plan is to bide his time until he can graduate, move to Austin with his twin sister, Clementine, and finally go Full Waylon, so that he can live his Julie-the-hills-are-alive-with-the-sound-of-music-Andrews truth.
Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years.
