WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK:
Small Town Hearts by Lillie Vale
I just started this sweet summer romance set in a touristy beach town in Maine. Sleepy beach towns are one of my favorite settings, and I’m already hooked on this one! The summer after high school is always so fun to read about, and Babe is a lovable main character dealing with change. I also love that she’s bi and that she loves to bake! I will read any romance with food in it.
I’m about 70 pages in and can’t wait to finish this one! It’s from Swoon Reads, and I pretty much always love their books. Look for Small Town Hearts on March 19!
A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa More Ramee
This middle grade novel is about a 12 year old girl named Shayla who gets involved in the Black Lives Matter movement. I’m so excited to see a MG novel that talks about BLM and shows that kids can be involved and make a difference.
I’ve been waiting for this book and have been super excited to read it since meeting the author at a book convention a while ago. I hope to see this one on the shelves of public and school libraries all over. A Good Kind of Trouble is out tomorrow, so be sure to pick up a copy!
