At the moment I think it’s probably Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus. I loved One Of Us Is Lying, and so can’t wait to read the sequel when it comes out in January.

Bea from The Girl Who Writes also recommends Two Can Keep a Secret.

The raven’s tale by Cat Winters! It’s about a young Poe, and the cover is stunning! She’s one of my fave authors, her stories are always dark and mysterious!

I’m very, very excited for Hanna Alkaf’s The Weight of Our Sky! The MC is an SEA teen with OCD who loves music, it’s an ownvoices book, and it handles a lot of important issues. I‘m also dying to read Descendant of the Crane by Joan He.

Descendant of the Crane – Joan He

I want to read so many! One of my tops has to be descendant of the crane! Chinese inspired fantasy featuring forbidden magic and a princess fighting to find her father’s murderer? Yes yes and yes.

Yes! I am dying for this one. I love Asian culture and seeing more of it in books makes me so happy!!
