Hiiii and I am back with more books for your towering TBR piles!!
I know, I know 😭 our wallets and overcrowded bookshelves do not need this, but do our hearts need it? Yes. That’s what’s important here alright. Snatching that fleeting moment of happiness while burying your face into a new book.
This will be my last YA new releases anticipation list for the year!! I will start in on 2022 books soon though so 😌 there will be no true rest. (Okay but the 2022 covers are already looking gorgeous.)

I have absolutely not read the original Little Women but pfft 😂 let’s not let that stop me. This looks incredible! And I loved this author’s book, A Song Below Water.
A Clash of Steal: A Treasure Island Remix by C.B. Lee | Goodreads
This cover though 😍 I believe this is part of the same series as the above book (but from different authors obviously!) And I LOVE retellings so this is so exciting. I always loved Treasure Island (and Disney’s Treasure Planet let’s be real.)

I’m sneaking one adult book onto here (more like a dark academia YA/adult crossover) because I’m absolutely dying with need for this one! It’s like a checklist of everything I adore in books 😭
Social Queue by Kay Kerr | Goodreads
I had the honour of blurbing this one!! After loving Kay Kerr’s debut (Please Don’t Hug Me) I was super excited for more authentic and relatable autistic and australian teen experiences – and this didn’t disappoint!

The Keeper of the Night by Kylie Lee Baker | Goodreads
This just sounds extremely badass with soul collecting and death goddesses and a sister/brother duo!

As a huge fan of Elatsoe last year, I need more from this author!! I’m not sure if this one also has ace rep but kind of hoping. And the cultural storytelling aspect sounds amazing already 😍

Queerness, disability rep, historical fiction !!! This has it all 🥺 And I think it has some queer-platonic triangles happening? Will read asap to see 😩👌🏻
You’ll Be the Death of Me by Karen M. McManus | Goodreads
It’s funny because the first time I read a McManus thriller I didn’t love it…and then every single one after that I’ve adored 😂 So I need this!! I really love her characters and the mysteries in the plots.
Spin Me Right Around by David Valdes | Goodreads
This sounds really fun and twisty! A queer Back to the Future!
