I am so bad at reading newly released books. It’s no lie – most of the time, I read books that came out years and years ago and if they’re not sequels, I’m not in the loop with books coming out recently. Preordering? Not my forte. But, I thought I’d celebrate the release of Rule Of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo today by revisiting a TTT topic from a few weeks ago I missed. Today’s topic is Places In Books I’d Like To Live; feel free to link up your post in the comments and I’ll try and check it out! Are there are any books you’re looking forward to? I’d love to find some more, let me know in the comments!

1. She Who Became The Sun by Shelly Parker-Chan
This is absolute number one. ‘Song of Achilles meets Milan’ in a queer lyrical imaging of the Ming Dynasty? My face fell when I realised it wasn’t out yet (years of ordering books for the next day has made me soft) and THE COVER!
Release date: 20th July 2021
2. The Last Stop by Casey McQuinnston
I – just yes. Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes.
Release Date: 1st June 2021
3. Once Upon A Crime by Robin Stevens
Not me preordering it seconds after it comes out knowing nothing about it…
But it’s murder most unladylike! And Robin Stevens! So I’ll take anything I can get of this iconic series.
Release date: 5th August 2021
4. Any Way The Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S FINALLY HERE. I have not waited for two and a bit years for this sequel to Wayward Son and Carry On to be bad. I swear. Sometimes I feel like the anticipation will exceed the actual book, but I also am unconsolably excited to read this. To put it on my shelf. For me, it’s feels unusual that my favourite series is uncomplete (reference back to never reading new books) and I’m ridiculously nervous/excited to finally finish the series.
Although we still haven’t got a UK cover?
Release Date: 6th July (I may know that off the top of my head. I may be counting down the days. It’s one of those books).
As is emphasized by this tiny list, I’m not very clued up on recent books coming out! I’d love to get some recommendations though, let me know in the comments 😊
