The Summer of Impossibilities by Rachael Allen
Expected publication: May 12th 2020

Synopsis (via Goodreads): Skyler, Ellie, Scarlett and Amelia Grace are forced to spend the summer at the lake house where their moms became best friends.

One can’t wait. One would rather gnaw off her own arm than hang out with a bunch of strangers just so their moms can drink too much wine and sing Journey two o’clock in the morning. Two are sisters. Three are currently feuding with their mothers.

One almost sets her crush on fire with a flaming marshmallow. Two steal the boat for a midnight joyride that goes horribly, awkwardly wrong. All of them are hiding something.

One falls in love with a boy she thought she despised. Two fall in love with each other. None of them are the same at the end of the summer.
It Sounded Better in My Head by Nina Kenwood
Expected publication: April 7th 2020

Synopsis (via Goodreads): From debut author Nina Kenwood comes a tender, funny, and compulsively readable novel about first love and its confusions, and all of the awkwardness of teen romance.

When her parents announce their impending divorce, Natalie can’t understand why no one is fighting, or at least mildly upset. Then Zach and Lucy, her two best friends, hook up, leaving her feeling slightly miffed and decidedly awkward. She’d always imagined she would end up with Zach one day―in the version of her life that played out like a TV show, with just the right amount of banter, pining, and meaningful looks. Now everything has changed, and nothing is quite making sense. Until an unexpected romance comes along and shakes things up even further.

It Sounded Better in My Head is a compulsively readable love letter to teenage romance in all of its awkward glory, perfect for fans To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Emergency Contact.
Don't Ask Me Where I'm From by Jennifer De Leon
Expected publication: May 5th 2020

Synopsis (via Goodreads): First-generation American LatinX Liliana Cruz does what it takes to fit in at her new nearly all-white school. But when family secrets spill out and racism at school ramps up, she must decide what she believes in and take a stand.

Liliana Cruz is a hitting a wall—or rather, walls.

There’s the wall her mom has put up ever since Liliana’s dad left—again.

There’s the wall that delineates Liliana’s diverse inner-city Boston neighborhood from Westburg, the wealthy—and white—suburban high school she’s just been accepted into.

And there’s the wall Liliana creates within herself, because to survive at Westburg, she can’t just lighten up, she has to whiten up.

So what if she changes her name? So what if she changes the way she talks? So what if she’s seeing her neighborhood in a different way? But then light is shed on some hard truths: It isn’t that her father doesn’t want to come home—he can’t…and her whole family is in jeopardy. And when racial tensions at school reach a fever pitch, the walls that divide feel insurmountable.

But a wall isn’t always a barrier. It can be a foundation for something better. And Liliana must choose: Use this foundation as a platform to speak her truth, or risk crumbling under its weight.

  1. I finished It Sounded Better in My Head yesterday, and I really liked it. I related so hard to Natalie. I am excited about Allen's new book. She won my heart with A Taxonomy of Love, and Impossibilities sounds like it will delight me as well.

    1. I love it when I really relate to the characters in books! It deepens the experience, you know? I haven't read A Taxonomy of Love, but the synopsis for The Summer of Impossibilities really piqued my interest. <3

  2. I love the cover for Don't Ask Me Where I'm From!

  3. Hope your new LCS is awesome. :)

    Love the look of Hawkeye and Nebula.

    I think it's cool Jim Zub is doing Conan, I listened to him talk about his Conan plans on a podcast recently. Also I liked his Wayward series.

    1. There are actually a few in the area, so we're going to have to try them all out before making a final decision! :) I'm not personally reading Conan, and I know Jacob just wanted it because of Moon Knight, haha. Jim Zub is writing something else I'm reading, I think... Do you listen to the Marvel podcasts too?

    2. I haven't listened to any Marvel podcasts, the one I heard with Jim Zub was this one (I think) haha. Took me a minute to find it again. :)

    3. Ohh! Thanks! I love listening to podcasts that focus on comics. They're so fun! I actually got my name/comment mentioned in one when I asked a question about Spider-Man's butt, and also one about how he sticks to glass when it's snowing (how he keeps warm, how his webs work, etc.). It was surreal!

  4. It Sounded Better In My Head sounds like a good one. Reading about an awkward start to a first love is always so nostalgic. :)

    1. I love it when a romantic relationship develops from a friendship or some awkward beginning. It's great! They have to learn to laugh with each other first, which I always like.

  5. It Sounded Better in My Head sounds like a great read! (And who can't relate to that title?)

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

    1. Right?? Most things sound better in my head, haha. ;)

  6. I am into comics and I wish I could read more, so thank you for this selection! I think I will start with Amazing Spider-Man Daily Bugle #1. Who doesn't love a good Spider Man comic?

    1. I love Spider-Man! There are a few out there right now, but Daily Bugle is a new one. I haven't had a chance to read the first issue yet, but I'm planning on catching up this weekend. :)
